Overview - The Elgin Darjeeling, West Bengal

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.

Living in Hotel Elgin can be an unforgettable vacationing experience by itself. Set aside a day from the tours to the beautiful spots in and around the town and enjoy the company of family and friends in an atmosphere of relaxation and enjoyment.

Darjeeling is known as the 'Queen of the hills'. The name derives from 'Dorji Ling', or the God of Thunder. Small wonder then, that the weather varies from the pleasant to cold, to very cold. As you enter, the heritage Hotel Elgin, warmth greets you. A silken Khada is draped around your neck in a traditional North-east welcome, as sparkling cherry liquor spreads a Warm glow within. The phrase 'old world charm' is a palpable feeling of being sung and cozy in this quaint and charming 120 year old residence reminiscent of the heydays of the Raj. There is a lived-in look about the oldest hotel in Darjeeling. It is justified, considering that royalty and distinguished Heads of State have spent many moments here, appreciating the lithographs by Daniel and etchings by G.Douglass that adorn its walls. Dominique Lapierre and Mark Tully have found inspiration to write in its relaxed interiors. Hotel Elgin has hosted the Crown Prince of Sikkim Tenzing Namgyal, the royal family of Bhutan, US Ambassador Galbraith and many more renowned personalities.
