Hotel Elgin Darjeeling

Darjeeling- from ‘ Dorji Ling’ means the ‘God of Thunder’. Small wonder then that in the quaint little hill station, the weather varies from the pleasant, to cold to very cold. 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 draped around your neck. Snug and cozy in an interior decked with etchings of G.Douglas, lithographs of Daniell, period Burma teak furniture, oak floor boards and paneling, crackling fireplaces, candle-lit tables and strains of music from the grand piano, you realize the meaning of palpable ‘old world charm’ which has played host to dignitaries like the US Ambassador and the Crown Prince of Sikkim to Dominique Lapierre and Mark Tully. The hotel has stories to tell from the time of its first owner the Maharaja of Cooch Behar to Nancy Oakley in the 1950s.

Rooms in Hotel Elgin Darjeeling

The thirty 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.
With a glowing fireplace and hot water bags in your bed, you will find all the amenities of comfort coupled with the charming Victorian décor. Our Attic Room 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

The Elgin has extended its hospitality for over 100 years to the kind of people who know the real style of living like the Maharaja of Cooch Behar who held most of his parties in this mansion entertaining his royal guests. With cozy interiors and classical tunes from the grand piano with discreet waiters in uniforms to serve you at all hours, the ambience is perfect. The Elgin chefs can win you over with a selection of delicious local, Indian or Continental cuisine with fresh bread, cakes and pastries prepared in-house for breakfast.
