“Total value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

We went to Sikkim for 8 days to celebrate our wedding anniversay and stayed at Tamarind Hotel in Gangtok. The hotel is at an excellent location, close to the main market with good spacious rooms and excellent staff & service. and The food is mainly vegetarian but up to the mark.The hotel is also good from the safety point of view. We left our belongings in the hotel itself while movig around locally. The managers and the front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Travel & stay to Lachen and Lachung were arranged by them at very competitive rates. Gangtok is a must visit if are looking for a nice relaxing holiday. Would definitely visit again and recommend others to stay in this hotel which is total value for money!

The hotel is conveniently located - walking disctance from the hub of Gangtok- MG Road and still cut off from any noise.. very peaceful location. On the second day, we were very delighted as we were upgraded to a suite room with a very good view.


Our room was very spacious, well designed and well lit. Furnishings and interriors are very good and clean- much better than what we expected. Bathrooms are very clean with availability of warm water through big geysers in every room.

All the staff were friendly, polite and ready to help.

Excellent facilitites like Wi-fi, indoor games are also available.

Food is good but room service has to improve. Good variety.

Hotel is located conveniently - a healthy walk down and up to MG road. The hotel was booked by the tour operator of our Sikkim trip. Friendly staff at the reception and house keeping with smiles on their faces and answering questions.
Lift was not working, which coudl be a difficulty for older people as breakfast was served on 3rd floor with rooms at ground or basement levels.
Our room was decent with a nice view, thought it was a bit of bad taste when they charged us for usign heaters. Wifi availability was nice. Breakfast buffet selection was poor/limited all 4 days, though the food in itself was decent. Room service menu has more variety.
Overall impression about the hotel overall was ncie because of the staff.

Recently visited Gangtok with a corporate group of 40 people . Stayed at Tamarind hotel. Close to the city centre
Good Hotel . Rooms are spacious neat & clean. Food was good, but must improve in their Breakfast spread.
Please note the Lift is not working. The Restaurant is on the 3rd floor & the rooms are in the basement -3. It is very difficult . They have to get the Lift repaired at the earliest as the season starts from April. Service should improve. After 10pm there will be no one you can contact for
emergency in the hotel. The staff are polite & courteous. If your are looking to host a conference the group size should not be more than 35 to 40 pax. Never miss the trip to Nathula & Tshangu.

Room Tip: Suite Rooms are very good . Deluxe rooms are good.

Stayed there for 2 days. The location was very near to city yet so peaceful. Hotel built and interior was nice. The entire support staff was very polite and courteous. Rooms were nicely built designed. Service was responsive and quick. Having such an amazing variety of food was good to taste. Overall the hotel is worth staying. Just would like to suggest them to keep room heaters more in stock, since it wasn't readily available and to improve on quality of bedding. It was not comfortable to sleep on hard mattresses.
