The Elgin Darjeeling West Bengal
Over 125 years old and once the summer residence of the Maharaja (King) of Cooch Behar, the Elgin Darjeeling is now a luxury heritage hotel. The hotel is situated in the heart of Darjeeling town, 6000 feet up in the Himalayas. A celebration of the elegance and grace of the Colonial era in the Queen of Hill Stations, located in the majestic Himalayan ranges, the Elgin is very much a part of Darjeeling's colonial history. As you enter, the Elgin warmth hugs you and makes you feel at home with a glass of sparkling cherry liquor and a silken Khada (scarf) draped around your neck.
Built in 1887 around a beautiful garden, the hotel has been extensively refurbished to restore it to its former grandeur and its history has been kept intact. The rooms offer splendid views of the mountains and valleys. The Elgin Darjeeling is a perfect base from which to explore the spectacular mountain scenery, pine forests and ancient monasteries of this world famous destination. The Elgin is within walking distance of the famous Darjeeling mall (High street), cafes, restaurants, bars and the Raj Bhavan (Governors House). A well stocked library, games room and children's activity centre and many opportunities for nature walks, make this luxury hotel and resort an all season destination.
SUITES & ROOMS : The twenty five luxury rooms of this mansion are seeped in nostalgia with stories to be heard from a bygone era of the elite, to days of mellow sunshine at the park or cheerful evenings at the Timber Bar.

Our Attic Rooms on the top of the mansion with sloping roofs and wooden walls is an excellent place to unwind after a particularly tiring day at the mountains.
