We stayed in the three bedded room which had excellent views. The Kanchenjunga peaks and the night sky was perfectly clear. They arranged a bonfire on request which was very pleasing. People should try this resort whenever they visit Tinchuley

Good resort and picturesque location. Great views through day and night Behaviour is good by hotel staff. Owner - Navin is very helpful with sight seeing. Pocket pinch on the higher side. Food is ok but tea is very nice. Wish to visit again.
