Here are some recommended places where you can stay..
Spotless,charming rooms with TV and nice furniture; upstairs rooms have especially appealing wood panelling.
A friendly family-run budget hotel down a lane just off the main road. The rooms are clean and there?s a rooftop terrace with a great view across to the monastery. Hot-water buckets cost Rs10. Home-cooked food is served in a slightly dank basement set up in the high season.
With 360-degree views over tea plantations and the twinkling lights of Siliguri, this quirky, charming boutique hotel is a destination in its own right. The 31 rooms are individually decorated with divans and antiques come with either a view or a balcony. Delicious meals feature unique Anglo-Indian cuisine (think ginger pudding with tea sauce), making it a good lunch stop if you have your own transport. The hotel is wheelchair-friendly and can provide Bagdogra Airport and NJP train station pick-ups. It’s worth budgeting an extra day to take in one of the excellent guided village and tea estate walks, topped off by a local-style stick massage or an expert tea tasting.
4.Hotel Delhi Darbar
A budget option a few blocks from the train station. It?s friendly but only just clean (go for the rooms with new lino rather than icky old carpet), hot water comes by the bucket and there?s TV. You can order in good cheap food from the restaurant below (mains Rs20 to Rs45).
5.The Elgin Silver Oaks
This centrally located Raj-era homestead has been renovated into a modern and very comfortable Elgin hotel. The rooms are plushly furnished and offer grand views down the valley (ask for a garden-view room). The tariff includes all meals in the classy restaurant and the sociable bar is worth visiting.
