Excellent stay, innovative and tasty food. The owner is a nice person. BaBal the helping boy is really punctual and attentive. Clean every where and a beautiful garden with a huge collection of flowers and trees and birds.

If you're looking for earthly amenities like wi-fi, TV in the room etc., don't go here. For that matter avoid the himalayan region altogether cause that's totally missing the point of visiting a place like Kalimpong.
If on the other hand you're looking for a cottage in a tropical paradise with flowers and orchids and birds and gorgeous views of the mountains and clouds, I cannot think of a better place to be in. The cottages are spanking clean and comfortable and very tastefully decorated - just perfect for the surroundings.
We ate breakfast here - cornflakes, milk, toast, buns and choice of eggs and tea/coffee. We also got puris and veggies one morning - all very good. The hosts are totally awesome and will help you get a taxi and provide concierge services as needed.

From the time you step into The Orchid Retreat you are transported into another world. One finds a variety of plants, flowers, birds and butterflies in the resort premises.Very peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of the main town.The cottages are clean, spacious and offer amazing views. Fresh, homemade food, personally supervised by the hostess adds to the charm of the place. Highly recommended. Hospitality at its best!

These guys have an amazing property, You feel like you are in some sort of tropical paradise. Mrs. Pradhan who manages the property is a very sweet lady. She is not in the business to make money. They make sure that not all of the cottages are booked so the guests can have privacy. Room is huge and you can do birding right from the balcony. On a couple of mornings we took a car to Lava and birded along the way and it was great. Food was homely and very good. I can't wait to go back.

Orchid retreat is located a bit away from the busy marketplace of Kalimpong. A car to visit the market or for sightseeing can be easily arranged if a request is made to Mrs Pradhan the owner who is always ready to help. The decor of the hotel's lobby and the rooms will suggest the eclectic
taste of the owners. If a person visits with a large group the main building with 4 rooms is the best option. Couples can prefer to stay in the cottages.
The service of Orchid retreat is really prompt and the staff is very helpful.We reached the hotel at 10:30 in the night and we were served hot food.
Overall it was a very nice hotel and I wish to visit again in near future
