Windamere Hotel is a beautiful hotel. It reminds me of the old times when there was British were here. You can enjoy the lexury and the comfort. Well said about the place "its one of the three jewels of the raj". I really liked the "villa".

Hubby and I stayed for 6 nights in a Heritage Suite. Rooms are well appointed, cosy with a fireplace. Hubby was uncomfortable with the limited shower room. Service is to die for...friendly, efficient: these staff really believe in this hotel. Food could have been more exciting. The tea every afternoon was divine! All in all, an excellent experience. I will go back to experience a Christmas here. Heard it's magical and I do believe the hype!!

Top Local Tips for Darjeeling

Take a ride on the train If you don't have the time to do the full trip on the train to Darjeeling, book a short round-trip to Ghoom. It runs twice a day and costs 240 Rs.

An amazing place of wordhip Take the time to take the short walk up to the temple located above the Windamere on Observatory Hill. The temple contains both Hindu and Buddhist elements; in one building, priests of both faiths are conducting rituals within meters of each other in harmony. The faithful remove their shoes at the can keep it on unless you actually enter the buildings.

Registering When you arrive at the closest airport, Bagdogra, register your arrival in Darjeeling with the policeman on duty at the airport. He will be sitting at a desk there, and will quite happily stamp your passports. If you don't do this, you will have to go register in Darjeeling at some point during your stay.
