The Elgin Nor Khill Hotel,
India, West Bengal
Info : The Elgin Nor Khill Hotel
Nor Khill means “house of jewels”, an apt title for this beautiful and glowing luxury heritage hotel. It’s cosy and intimate here, so expect an enthusiastic welcome, warm furnishings, plenty of history, and a wealth of natural rugged beauty all around.
In central Gangtok, the hotel is nestled at an altitude of 1500 metres above sea level. The owners strive for a comfortable and welcoming vibe, a sort of home away from home. What makes Elgin Nor Khill different from other hotels in the Sikkim region is its close proximity to bars and restaurants on Gangtok’s High Street – you’re not limited to just dining and drinking at the hotel (although you’ll want to – the Sikkimese and Nepalese specialties are delicious.)
The 25 rooms and suites are decorated in traditional Sikkimese style, all of theme elegantly furnished with magnificent mountain views and Burma teak flooring. If you’re bringing the kids, there’s a common activity room that’s particularly popular with children and babysitters.
This is the place to stay if you’re keen to trek and explore the incredibly beautiful natural surroundings by foot or by mountain bike, but you don’t wish to feel too isolated. A popular choice in beautiful Gangtok, particularly for families.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
