to New Elgin Hotel - Darjeeling - 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.
The Elgin has been restored to its original grandeur, 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.
The Elgin is 10 minutes from Darjeeling Station and 3 hours from
Bagdogra Airport. There are direct flights from Delhi, Kolkata and
Bangkok and there is ample private parking for guests who choose to
drive or rent a car.
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. 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 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
