The Nor-Khill Hotel, Gangtok
The 'Nor-Khill' (or 'house of jewels') was built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 as his royal guesthouse for receiving Heads of States and dignitaries. Located 5,000 feet above sea level in the heart of Sikkim's capital Gangtok it is now a fine heritage hotel run by the Elgin Group.
The Nor-Khill has been recently restored to its original grandeur, and oozes 'old world' charm with its period features and relaxing ambience. The 25 rooms and suites offer splendid views of the mountains and valleys. The hotel is a perfect base to explore the spectacular mountain scenery, pine forests and ancient monasteries of this scenic region of the Himalayan foothills. It is within walking distance of the pedestrianised M.G Road (the main shopping street), cafes, restaurants and bars.
All rooms offer ensuite facilities, 26 inch LCD TVs, complimentary tea and coffee-making facilities, electronic safe and telephone. Complimentary Wifi is available.
