Heritage hotel in Darjeeling, India. Built in 1872 - British Colonial "Raj" style architecture. Recently renovated and expanded to accommodate budget travellers. Excellent views of the himalayas, quiet setting and friendly, welcoming management.

The Olde (Main) Bellevue Hotel at Darjeeling was established in or around 1872, and represents the best of colonial “Raj” architecture.

Built at the same time and in the same traditions as other “Raj-style” buildings such as the Darjeeling Planters’ club and other tea plantation bungalows, it is one of the longest established heritage hotels in Darjeeling district. Despite being a heritage property it is reasonably priced and benefits from having been a family run establishment all through its history. It was owned by an English lady until 1942 when it was bought by the present owners’ family who have held it now for three generations.

The hotel has been consistently referred to and recommended by various guides such as the Le Guide du Routard (the highly regarded French travel guide), Rough Guide (India), Footprint India Handbook, Lets Go India, Discovery Channel Insight Guide and of-course Lonely Planet. The hotel has as its guests, a number of group tours (including motor-cycle and bicycle tours as well as “dragoman-style” coach tours) for their stay in Darjeeling and has been awarded by return visits every year. The hotel has also hosted meditation, and other (particularly Buddhist) teaching camps.

The hotel comprises the heritage wing as well as a modern new wing with Swiss – chalet style architecture with a pronounced sloping roof, sun deck and viewing gallery with plenty of natural light and excellent views of the Kanchenjunga and Sandakphu ranges.

All the rooms come with attached toilets and showers with running hot and cold water and cable TV.

The heritage wing is enclosed in a pretty garden with plenty of sunshine, pub-style benches and excellent views of the mountain ranges.

The hotel is very centrally located on a ridge overlooking Chowrasta and The Mall which is the tourist hub of Darjeeling and is yet quiet and secluded as it is located on a ridge above the square.

Location Information

Come to Planters Club Motor Stand. The Mall (which is the tourist hub of Darjeeling) begins here. It is a pedestrian’s only zone and no motor vehicles are permitted beyond this. Walk along the Mall exactly 330 feet until you come to a restaurant called Glenarys'. Our main reception is right opposite it is clearly marked Old Main Bellevue Heritage Hotel (New Wing). Be sure to ask for Siddhartha. Beware of hotel touts and other hotel Bellevues.

We have signs in English and French. We also have the EU symbol and a symbolic representation of services as per EU norms.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hotel is located in the centre of Darjeeling, which is very convenient. One can walk everywhere from there. Staff is friendly, but the place would benefit if they did apply themselves to some cleaning rather than sitting around offering service. The photograph that attracts people to this place is dated and for the most part, people do not stay in the "old colonial Raj style building" but rather in the newer addition, that does not look anywhere near as good. I think there are better places in Darjeeling, both in terms of location and price.
