Darjeeling Hotel: Windamere

Observatory House, Windamere, Darjeeling

Established in the 19th century as a boarding house for bachelor English and Scottish tea planters, it was converted into a hotel just before the outbreak of the Second World War.

Windamere is located on historic Observatory Hill where Darjeeling began, and overlooks the Chowrasta. From Observatory Hill, one can glimpse Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal and Sikkim, against a stupendous backdrop of twenty of the highest mountain peaks in the world.

Ada Villa at the Windamere appeals to guests who like tradition, who would be comfortable in a bygone age, and who want a reminder of how people got on with their lives in old Darjeeling. For this reason, there are no TVs and telephones in Ada Villa as guests who choose to live here prefer to avoid the distractions of modern life for the duration of their stay.

The Snuggery at the Windamere appeals to people who need to remain in touch with modern life, even while they indulge their love of the past and old things. The residential houses in this wing, Annandale House, and Observatory House, are provided with TVs and telephones.

The bathrooms in the Snuggery have fixtures which were once the property of the Loreto Convent Girls School. These were donated to Windamere Hotel when the Convent closed down its boarding school after 130 memorable years.
