Mayfair Darjeeling, West Bengal

Discover the Mayfair Darjeeling

Perched on a picturesque hill overlooking the town – and overlooked, in turn, by the awe-inspiring Himalaya Mountains, Mayfair Darjeeling is a heritage hotel that exudes old-world charm and quiet elegance. Wake up to birdsong and beautiful views as you soak in the blissful ambience. Originally a maharaja’s summer palace, this grand property is extensively renovated over the years. The building still has a very English-style architecture and décor with vintage linen, curtains, fireplaces, woodwork and Raj-era photos adorning walls. Immaculately manicured gardens and a bizarre collection of kitschy sculptures add to the charm. Located at one end of the mall road, it is an ideal base to explore major attractions of Darjeeling on foot.
