Heaven in the Himalayas - recommend highly
by ChandrimaB465 on
I'm writing this 8 months after we stayed at Glenburn, in December 2019. Obviously so much has happened in the world since then because of the pandemic, but we often speak of our 4 days there. I have just re-ordered (online) some of Glenburn's amazing Khongea Masala Chai, which I have only just finished (having rationed myself!) Bertie and Audrey, our hosts, made this trip for us, they are charming and accomodating. As did Rudolph our guide, who is really knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. (In fact one of our highlights was visiting the local village with him) Our room was off the main dining room, and it is still how I imagine it was in the 1940s. As a child of Indian immigrants, I often wonder what living in a Raj-era building was like, I'm sure this is it, with a four-poster bed and a working bath in the bathroom. It was cold in the evenings- we had heated electric blankets and a hot water bottle. The weather was beautiful in the daytime and we had breakfast and sometimes lunch looking at the Himalayan mountain peaks, amongst wonderful flowers and greenery. Every evening we had a communal dinner with other guests- some were lovely, others less so but that is still fun when you are travelling with only each other for company most of the time. The trek down to the river was fun, climbing back up to the house in the heat hard work but aches soothed away by an amazing massage. TAKE WALKING BOOTS with ankle supports rather than just trainers if you want to climb up the valley (or get driven in the Jeep!). We didn't go further afield, preferring to stay in the grounds, but next time we will definitely visit local monasteries and temples.
Highly recommend; wonderful experience

My husband and I stayed at this property for 4-5 days in April 2019. We had a great time; we felt the hosts, Bertie and his wife Audrey run the place very well; they were also very knowledgable, helpful and friendly. The property itself is spectacularly located; you can look up at the ridge on which Darjeeling sits. In another direction, you can see the Himalayas. The room we had was very spacious. The property really captures the traditional feel and ambience of a tea plantation. Thank you Bertie and Audrey again for your hospitality. Peter and Fira Henshaw
Incredible escape to the hills

I stayed at Glenburn at the end of a long trip across Assam, Nagaland and Bengal. What a way to finish!! Yes, its an adventurous ride down there (I was offered to walk if I wished) and It might not be ideal as a Darjeeling focused hotel if youve just got a night or two. But I took it as as a relaxing treat at the end of my trip which I felt was a great way to really enjoy it. I stayed in the new building and the room was vast, bright and welcoming with stunning views. The service was impeccable from start to finish and the hosts l made me feel part of the extended family. My highlight was definitely early evening, looking over at the lights of Darjeeling - my first taste of India a decade ago - with a beer. It felt so relaxing and poignant. The shared dining was fun and as is the case in India, delicious. I was one of the younger guests but the hosts helped me integrate and I was quickly adopted other guests sharing our stories. The only tiny gripe Ive heard from others is that if you drink beer its unclear how much youre being charged for as you sometimes get a large bottle and other times a glass refill. I guess that is true though you could always ask I suppose. I imagine not a concern for most of the clientele and they were cheaper than I was expecting (cheaper than the Mall in Darjeeling). But thats all I can think of. As long as youre aware of the bumpy drive and the distance from town then its a gem and worth a binge at the end of a trip. On a side note I found Glenburn far warmer with a little more of an eclectic atmosphere than some other expensive hotels in India. It felt like other guests wanted to be part of the experience/here as their treat, rather than a tick box/status thing. To me as a solo with this as my only luxury property, that was hugely important as it didnt feel like a private members club like some others can, especially in Rajasthan. Cant wait to return!
Epitome of style and class.

I feel lucky to have found the Glenburn Tea Estate during my on-line research prior to my trip there. What a gem. It sits on a hilltop surrounded by literally hundreds of acres of tea fields. For my companion and I, it was a perfect spot to spend a week relaxing, enjoying the scenery, and being treated like royalty by the hotel staff. I enjoyed the trip to such extent that I have had recurring dreams about returning ever since. No detail is left unattended. Every courtesy is extended. Do not miss a chance to spend several days at this place.
Perfect in every detail!

I stayed at Glenburn for two nights in March. What a delightful setting in a traditional tea planter's house surrounded by spectacular scenery, hosted impeccably by Bertie and Audrey. Total relaxation, but plenty of opportunity for activities if you wish, from walks through the tea plantations and local village to bird watching and visit to the tea factory. Excellent food, breakfast on the scenic terrace, afternoon tea, dinner taken with the other guests country house style! Wonderful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Two days was not really long enough!
Just enjoy the experience - it’s unique

All the rooms are beautiful, the Water Lily bungalow would probably be perfect for couples travelling together.

If you are looking for 5 star hotels in Darjeeling, do try Glenburn! High up in the Himalayas, overlooking the mighty Kanchenjunga is this quaint plantation retreat that was originally started in 1859 by a Scottish tea company. Eventually, Glenburn passed on to one of India’s most renowned tea families, the Prakash, fondly known as the ‘Chaiwala family’. The estate is presently run by the third and fourth generation of the Prakash family who have worked toward restoring the main bungalow which includes the Burra Bungalow, and the Water Lily Bungalow to give them the colonial planters’ bungalow feel. With a private forest stretching into a 1000-acre and two rivers running through the estate, a stay here is sure to rejuvenate you. Nestled on the edge of a hillock just before the Burra Bungalow, the rooms in the estate afford breathtaking views of the Kanchenjunga peaks and the Darjeeling town down below. Done up in colonial style with antique furnishings, Burma teak flooring and restored cast iron window frames with arched skylights and a private sit-out beyond the bay windows, Glenburn makes your plantation stay larger than life. The estate grows most of its vegetables, spices, herbs and even fruits, and the menus are tailored around incorporating the freshest farm-grown produce. During your stay, let the tea estate manager take you around the rolling tea gardens and familiarise you with the process of how a simple tea leaf makes its way into the cup. The staff of the estate are extremely adept in imparting you that knowledge. To pick up some tea pouches among other souvenirs, browse the Glenburn Shop. If you are going to be visiting anytime between October and March - the peak fishing season, do sign up for a day of fishing that involves hikes, picnics and travelling around. Look out for rainbow trouts, snow trout and golden mahseer in the season. The inclusiveness of the dining experience here is what strikes you most. What with an open kitchen policy where you can watch the cooks rustle up your dishes. Glenburn bakes its own bread, its marmalade, and whips up an assortment of signature cakes and cookies.
