The Elgin - Darjeeling
Our rating: Premium | Property style: Hotel
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 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.
