The Elgin Nor-Khill ("the house of jewels")is known for its tradition and ethnic Sikkimese ambiance. It is now a luxury heritage property. The Kanchan garden affords a rich view of the hills with the Mount Kanchenjungha in the background, which inspired the Chogyal (King) of Sikkim to paint for hours. The Elgin Nor-Khill was built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 and is the oldest heritage property in Gangtok, the property has played host to numerous celebrity guests such as his holiness The Dalai Lama, Hollywood stars Sir Richard Gere, Michael Douglas and Shirley Maclaine, the US Ambassador to India His Excellency John Galbraith and many more. The lobby is resplendent in the bright folk Sikkimese art with design motifs depicting dragons and flame symbols to thankas and ornate Sikkimese furniture (bachu, chocsue) and traditional jewelry.

Elgin Nor Khill is a bucket list property for global tourists ladies and gentlemen. Nurtured with kid gloves - by the owners - the Oberoi stamp is evident at every nook and corner of this benchmark property. Even HILTON - the lovely Samoyed is steeped in being a happy, discerning member of this lovely brigade. Kalpana and I possibly packed in too much of Nathu la, Tsang Po and the city but surely the next time round we will practice the 'art of doing nothing' and spend max time with Mr. Sahu the affable property GM for years, Sudip the F&B Head, the warm and caring staff and take this to be the one point destination in itself. Such is the pull of this bespoke property, its staff, its management practices and care for guests. A big salute to Elgin and its management! To Kalpana and I - it is Nor Khill or bust, when in Gangtok! Kudos to the entire team. You make us proud that Indian hospitality stands so tall even today - very well done!

An amazing property with exceptional service. The staff are extremely courteous and friendly. The only problem I had was with the quality of food being served for breakfast. There was plenty of variety but the quality and taste was lacking. From toast that would crumble to tetra packed juices loaded with sugar, one would expect better from such a prestigious group of hotels.

While the property is beautifully placed at the heart of the city (with MG Market only a km), the property needs a massive renovation across its rooms as well as service levels, if this has be showcased as a 5 star property. Otherwise, the staff is very helpful and the food is ok.

Excellent hotel. Warm and Hospitable staff. Location to die for, mere 10 minutes walk to MG Marg. Staff always greet you with a smile and always ready to help and go out of their way to serve you. A must visit and the only place to stay at in Gangtok.

We stayed in the Elgin Nor-Khill, Gangtok with family. It's location is near to MG Marg of Gangtok. The Hotel has a Royal Touch. The Hotel Staff including the General Manager (Shri Basudev Sahu) of the Hotel were very courteous and took care of us. We required special food and they took all care to make it. We had to organise a birthday party of our daughter and the hotel management organised it so nicely that left an impression in our memory bank. The Dining Room was very well organised. The Garden is maintained UNIQUE. The TEA LOUNGE is ROYAL touch. Over all the dog HILTON gives us good touch. We enjoyed our Stay there and Overall our Stay was simply SUPERB. Thanks
