The Elgin hotel, located in Darjeeling, was once the summer residence of Maharaja Cooch Behar, which has now been restored as a luxurious hotel. The hotel is situated at 6000 feet up in the Himalayas and is a part of Darjeeling’s colonial history. This hotel celebrates the grace of the Colonial Era and proudly stands as the Queen of Hill Stations in India.
As the guests enter, the warmth makes them feel at home along with a glass of sparkling cherry liquor the staff drapes a silken scarf around the guest’s neck. The hotel has been restored to its cozy interiors that include the Burma teak wood, crackling fireplaces, oak floor boards and candle lit tables. Built back in 1887, the hotel has totally been refurbished and the cozy rooms give a breath taking view of valleys and mountains. This place is a base from which guests can explore pine forests, mountain scenery and ancient world famous monasteries.
Elgin is at walking distance proximity from Darjeeling mall, restaurants, cafes and the Raj Bhavan. The hotel also provides a number of hotel facilities that include a well stocked library, business center, spa and health center, meeting and conference facilities, activity center for young ones, movie library, mountain bikes on rent and baby sitting.
