Hi,

Has anybody ever stayed in 'Darjeeling Tourist Lodge'? It is being run by West Bengal Tourism.

I want to know the quality of it.
Thanks,
Raktim Sarkar

One of the finest stays at Darjeeling. Close to mall . Excellent service. The main building first floor rooms are pricey, spacious and would allow you to a beautiful Kanchanjungha view bang from your room. In fact The last and the priciest room had the luxury of a small antechamber where you could sit all day enjoying the view and sipping your choicest poison. The annexe building rooms are excellent value for money. The property can be reached by car, a rarity there. Hot water supply is 24 hours on , another rarity , but one should go easy on water use, given the scarcity of it there. Food is good , though I prefer the brilliant fare that is on offer throughout the city. Sample the chicken roast.

Darjeeling Tourist Lodge

Completely agree with Somnathda.It is one of the finest accomodation available in Darjeeling for any budget.The parking facility,and 24*7 hot water are the main advantage.The views are great from main building and the lawn,and the wooden flooring adds to the charm.Not too mention they serve the finest Darjeeling tea complimentary for breakfast.Very near mall,but no noise

Yes , they do provide extra cots but for a charge. What are your dates? I will probably be in that nook of the wood around first week of June myself.

Wow. I'll be there tentatively from 3/6/16. Subject to availability of rail tickets.
By the way, can any itinerary be suggested for for one week (HWH-HWH) on that circuit? I wish to include toy train ride & one nearby homestay (like chatakpur /icheygaon etc.)
I've 1.5 yr daughter (1st time she'll be on Hill station). So will be safe there to stay on any home stay (running hot water & room heater facilities be there). Please suggest for good home stay. Or I should choose WBTDC Kalimpong?

I have heard about the large double bed rooms in the main building. Can anyone tell me which is the best room?

The extreme left room on the second floor . Not sure about the first floor one as I haven't stayed in it myself, should be identical.
