The Elgin, Darjeeling, Darjeeling
Lovely comfortable hotel.
This is a lovely hotel with reflections of the Raj. Comfortable lounges, open fires, good sized rooms, some with spectacular views. The food is well prepared if fairly standard cuisine for this area. Convenient for Chawrastra Mall and the bazaar.

Not good value for money
Hotel rather faded and service not as good as the 3 other Elgins we stayed in. Buffet food good but although breakfast was supposed to be from 7am no buffet was available before 7.30 and it seems we had to wake up serving staff (even though the manager was aware we wanted breakfast at 7).
