Reason For Rating : Excellent ambience and nicely decorated property with an old world charm. The staff are helpful except that they insist on serving dinner at 8.30 pm at room. The location of the hotel is just awesome.

Reason For Rating : The hotel is so good that I have stayed here three times in the last 4years. It's a destination in itself. Once inside you won't like to go for sightseeing. Ambiance, conveniences, service, decor everything is top notch. The lady owner stays here and that makes a lot of difference.

The warm smile of Deepa greeted us when the outside temperature read 6C and we were ushered in in the century old colonial bungalow of late Percy John Cochrane perched between two world famous lush tea gardens of Castleton and Makaibari. We started soaking in the nostalgic British era decor while sipping on the piping hot Darjeeling tea and could not stop falling in love with the place at once. Cochrane Place in lower Kurseong is not just a property or a 'boutique hotel' as the website claims, but is an experience in itself. You need to stay here to know. Even before one enters the walk through reception area, a classic yellow Beetle and two Land Rovers from the old age, greet the guests. We stayed in Pandim (yes, the rooms have names too) in the first floor overlooking the picturesque valley in the west and we could not take our eyes off from the vista. It is indescribably beautiful, with Mt Kanchenjungha standing gracefully beyond the valley and mountain ranges. One should however stay here only to enjoy nature and discover the sweet bonds of one's own family which is getting lost in the hustle of city life. The rooms have all modern amenities though including an idiot box with all the channels. Try to ignore that. Instead, go out and explore the nursery and orchid room they have, the innumerous interesting nooks and corners, the lovely terrace or the surrounding area. You are assured to find something that you will love. Dinner is served early at 7 and closes at 8.30. We had an amazing local talent, Sooraj, singing live during dinner. Don't be late or you will miss him as he leaves at 8 typically. Overall, the wooden corridors, carpeted ramp, warm glow of lamps and the smell of heritage took us to a time we read only in history books. We met the charming Debasree Di, a friend of the current owners, during our stay who looks after the overall experience of the guests and made us feel a part of the Cochrane family; such is the hospitality you can expect when you check in. A must do experience in Kurseong!

The review i guess will be a little lengthy, so appreciate if you can have patience till the end. We reached Kurseong amidst dense clouds surrounding the in and abouts on 12th December 2019. Our booking was for 4 standard rooms but on arrival was delighted to hear that the standard rooms are under maintenance and renovation , which meant we were being upgraded to Deluxe rooms at no extra cost. We were served hot tea with cookies both tasted great and then shown into our rooms. Walking towards the rooms through the common area clearly told us about the grandeur. I have uploaded a few pictures which will show you how royal this place is. Each of the rooms were decorated differently and a sight in itself. To me , any property is characterized by the quality of rooms, service staff and food. On top of that, if there is any lapse how does the management team react to that and how quickly they can turn things around. To my utter surprise the quality of food served during lunch and dinner was in sharp contrast to the awesome feeling of the property. Post dinner I had a word with the manager Mrs Debashree Majumdar. She seemed a bit taken aback by the feedback being dished out about the quality of food served and assured us, it might have been an off day for some reason and that they will ensure things are turned out. A new day..next day morning...Breakfast ; And BOY DID SHE AND HER TEAM KNOW HOW TO TURN THINGS AROUND !!! For the next couple of days, every food that was served to us was probably the best quality food I have had travelling across India. I can guarantee this is the best complimentary breakfast in terms of spread and quality I have ever had. I do plan to go back to Kurseoung again and I wont be putting up anywhere other than Conchrane Place for sure. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone visiting Kurseong for at least one night stay.

We had to wander out from our hotel in Kurseong (Allita), during our 2 day visit. We had found Cochrane Place on tripadvisor and decided to book our lunch table with them in advance. The response on email was quick, and they gave us choices to fix our menu for our large group. The food and hospitality was amazing and we all enjoyed the lunch and scenic beauty around the place. The hotel is a colonial bungalow with a history of being built by the British. There is valley-view on either side of the property, which is quite rare to find there. The Makaibari Tea Estate is just 1 km ahead of the hotel, in these 2 places can be visited as part of a day-trip..

We stayed 4 nights. Our ground floor room, with comfortable twin beds, was spacious and well-appointed - the bathrooms have been recently renovated and are excellent. A wall heater provides warmth, which is most welcome at this time of year. We did not use the large terrace as the weather was cool and cloudy. The staff were excellent. They were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, especially those with ingredients locally sourced. We can strongly recommend the Indian vegetarian options. This is not however a 5 star hotel in the same league as the Oberoi. It has a quirky charm of its own, which we relished, and would suit those of a more adventurous disposition if staying the Kurseong area.

I stayed at Cochrane Place just 1 night, but wish I could have stayed much longer. The staff was friendly and attentive to all of my needs. It is set in a gorgeous location and easily accessible by car. Food was delicious. This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at in my life. I highly recommend a stay at the Cochrane Place!
