Great property , Very bad service. Cottage are nice with super view. Staff are irresponsible and non-responsive. Not available after 10 pm till 9 am. A few of them carries ATTITUDE. Only the manager DEEPAK IS NICE & CO-OPERATIVE. No coordination between hotel manager and hotel staff.
Breakfast spread was so so .
There is no hotel/dabha nearby, so u have to be depend on them .

Note: There r too many blood sucking leech insect , so be careful .Even this insect bites u, the hotel staff r so causal that they want get even first-aid box. Some leech insect are dangerous.

1 star only for the location.
We stayed for 2 nights on 16, 17 Mar 2018.

1. Despite booking in advance, no proper booking available with appropriate no of people/beds and CP plan.
2. Smelly room and bathrooms. No one will attend to the complaints made.
3. No hot water- electricity problem/voltage probem. They wil not turn on the generator.
4. No housekeeping available, if you want tea bags or sugar sachets between 4 pm and 10 am, forget it.
5. Staff - irresponsible and non-responsive. Not available after 9 pm till 9 am. A few of them carries ATTITUDE.
6. Had to carry our own luggage to and from the rooms.
7. No coordination between hotel manager and hotel staff.
8. Tasteless food. No dishes other than the fixed buffet available. Have to fight to get it., But again would taste bad.
9. Four members out of 7 of my group fell ill after having the breakfast and that too a very limited breakfast.
10. Will bring food bill when in middle of your dinner. Also brought bill at 10:30 pm in the night.
11. No complimentary breakfast (CP plan) made available despite having agreed to provide packed limited sandwiches in the morning on 18th morning.
12. We were denied dinner service after 9 pm but a group was being server dinner even at 10:30 pm the next day.
13. Pickle and onion with your food wil be charged extra. 100/- alone for 1/2 sliced onions.
14. The hotel manager agreed for a bonefire for all the guests but went out to their another nearby property with his guitar and did not pay heed to our requests.

BEWARE.... Travel to this property AT YOUR OWN RISK. They are just interested in minting money out of you.

This place is serenely located and gives great views of the hills right from your cottage rooms..Excellent service from the reception staff and the restaurant guys. .
P.s. Dogs maintained at the resort give you company now and then:)

Hotel location is best and superb view of Kanchenjunga. Hotel is @ top of hills. I stay for 2N and was pleased to have excellent facilities. Food is good. With limited options in food but tasty. One should book with breakfast and dinner. Don't think for any other option.
