The Elgin, Darjeeling



The Elgin

Built in 1887 around a garden, the hotel has been extensively refurbished to restore it to its former grandeur and its history has been kept intact. The hotel which was styled in the Royal Manor House architecture has been restored to its original condition with etchings of Gouray Douglas,[4] lithographs of William Daniell, period Burma Teak furniture, oak floor boards and paneling and original fireplaces.

This hotel has played host to dignitaries like the US Ambassador and the Palden Thondup NamgyalCrown 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 when she owned it in the 1950s.
