Hotel Mayfair - Darjeeling


This is Hotel Mayfair Darjeeling....a hill resort which once was a summerhouse of the former Maharajah of Nazargunj.Only after few hours we got some inside information that the hill station might face an indefinite strike ....we took no chances and the next morning left Darjeeling...these are the only pictures i have of Darjeeling........Mandira and her daughters Namu-Tani,my kids proceeding towards the lobby..
This resort is very beautiful......


The lobby...they have a huge and i mean HUGE collection of art displayed all over the hotel.....
A view from just outside our rooms....

  6. Wow what a charming hotel...hope you had a fabulous time.
    I love these quaint hotels in India. With their colonial architecture and mahogany furniture, they look classic. Somehow these modern hotels lack that personal touch.

  12. This is indeed a beautiful place. I would envy anybody who got to stay there. Price or pauper. It is so nice.

    It reminds me of the time I went to West Palm Beach Florida to do a television series for PBS. And they set me up in a huge house in Delray Beach all by myself. And the house was filled with old master's masterpieces. The place was a winter home of a big shot in Connecticut. But I really liked living there until I got the television programs finished.

    This place reminds me of that experience.

    I slept under a blanket last night. This has been the coldest July ever recorded here in Ohio where we live. And it was only 59 F here this morning. August is starting out to be more of the same. I fear a climate change is on the way and each year will disrupt the lives of more birds and butterflies to say nothing about the polar bears.

    Do you get a free breakfast in a hotel like that???

  20. Beautiful pics Kavita. I guess you should have stayed there. And I'll try to see the hotel on my next visit. :-)


    But it's strange really. Recently I worked on my page and modified it so that its easy to load. I even mentioned it in a perticular post. I thought now its ok. Please let me know if this problem still exists. I'll see what I can do. Probably I'll have to remove a few XML widgets. :-(
    Do you have a dialup connection???

  23. Darjeeling Mayfair is awesome, I had recently visited another Mayfair group of hotels in Gangtok and have written about it - it was as lovely as the Darjeeling Mayfair. Believe Mayfair group of hotels are all lovely. Would love to visit their Goa one as well someday.
