Windamere Hotel

Top choice hotel in Darjeeling
Image by

This quaint, rambling relic of the Raj is one of Darjeeling’s most atmospheric digs. The charming Ada Villa, with the tea rooms and bar, was once a boarding house for British tea planters, and the well-tended grounds are spacious with lots of pleasant seating areas. The comfortable rooms, fireplaces and hot-water bottles provide just the right measure of comfort and mothballed charm.

The Windamere is a particularly great place to spend Christmas and New Year, when an international crowd checks in to enjoy entertainment by British TV and stage artists and other festive fun.
