Elign Hotel Darjeeling India

Darjeeling - India

Location

Beyond the toothless grin of Deora Tshering Lepcha, is the dedication and discipline of 50 years of service at The Elgin, Darjeeling.

Serving distinguished guests, from royalty to celebrities, has been a learning experience for this 'veteran' who hails from Sikkim. He takes great pride in being ready with a pot full of Darjeeling tea, even before you realize how much you needed that refreshing brew.

Like ol' Deora, every burnished card table, every polished brass plaque has a story to tell. The sense of history is palpable, but instead of hanging heavy in the air, it adds to the quaintness amidst the privacy of Heritage buildings of the Elgin Group.

Those who listen, those gifted with the 'eye', yes…the cognoscenti like putting up at our hotels.


Elign Hotel Darjeeling India - Accommodation

 If the thirty luxurious heritage rooms of this mansion could speak, there would be many stories from the lives of the sophisticated elite to be heard, many a nostalgic account of the idyllic days in the mellow sunshine at the park or cheerful evenings at the Timber bar.

When you retire to your room, a glowing fire place and hot water bags in your bed await you. You will find that all the amenities of comfort is integrated with the charming Victorian decor.
