Universally described as the ‘Queen of Hills’, Darjeeling is unique in its versatality and is at once, both old and new! Cedar Inn – The boutique hotel, is located high above the main town, nestling amidst groves of evergreen trees in serene environs. The hotel location is arguably its greatest asset, setting it above and apart from the hustle of downtown and offering a visual treat of spectacular mountain vistas. The view is without a doubt one of the most memorable in the world.Extensive hand crafted woodwork adorns the interiors, adding, warmth and a touch of Traditional elegance, while exotic Himalayan foliage and the soothing sound of rippling water bring the outdoors in.Live music by the best local artists everyday entertains the guests and sets in the mood for a perfect evening. Our Guest are priority and thus all efforts are extended to enable a pleasant and memorable stay, attributing special focus to the culinary preferences of the residents. The hotel is also perfectly equipped for seamless conduction of business conferences and related events.There is a Grand Piano. During the high season, a local musician plays the piano every day in the evening adding to the overall ambience.

As you sit in the lobby or the restaurant, the sound of the piano playing at the background lights up the spirit, it feels wonderful. There is a bar known as 'Bar of Paradise' which has good selections of liquor, beer and wine. They keep both Indian and imported spirits. During the low season, the bar usually opens on request. It stays open until 9pm. You can however have a wine or beer served in the restaurant as well at the time of dinner. Outside the lobby at the ground floor, there is a lovely lush green lawn. There are wrought iron chairs with glass top tables that are laid out in the lawn. The lawn is circled with trees in all sides. There are also huts around the lawn with covered seating.


There are 29 rooms in Cedar Inn, out which there are few Executive and Observatory suites which are more expensive and obviously better in terms of interior decor, amenities etc. Otherwise all rooms are similar in design. In most of the floors, there is a separate lobby with nice seating arrangement where one can relax, have tea and read news papers and magazines. There are few cottages as well.Rooms are wood paneled and have wooden floor. There is a small dressing area in the room. The best part of a room is the curved bay window and the seating arrangement next to it. You can open the windows.Most of the rooms have marvelous views of the Kanchenjunga and the Eastern Himalayan Range. On a clear day, you can clearly see the dazzling snow peaks from the room. This is probably the single best reason for choosing this hotel.All rooms have color television (not LCD though) with cable channels. Most of the rooms have their own fireplace, phones with STD/ISD facility etc.
