Cochrane Place Oct 03, 2010
Cochrane Place is a lovely hotel in Kurseong. It is a little way out of the

main town, in a quiet spot with great views across two valleys. It has really

helpful staff and will pick you up from Bagdogra airport or Kurseong station.

They will also sort you out if you forget your toothbrush, need rail tickets, or

want advice on places to go for a walk in the area.

The hotel restaurant does lovely Indian food, including some really nice momos

(Himalayan dumplings that taste a little like dim sum dumplings but better).

The staff are great. There is an extensive tea menu, and the waiter insisted on

making me a different kind of tea each time, culminating in a totally amazing

iced tea with rhododendron flower and pomegranate.

The rooms are decorated with cool antiques, and the hotel teddy bear was sitting

on the bed to welcome us. The bed was comfortable. The only problem was that

the room windows had been open to air the room, and the late monsoon meant that

clouds had got inside the room and made the bed a little damp. This wouldn’t be

a problem if there wasn’t a late monsoon. The fact that there were clouds

coming inside the room tells you a lot about just how amazing the views are when

the weather clears.

The hotel also has a massage service that includes a stick massage, which

involves being hit very gently with wooden sticks for an hour. It’s actually

very relaxing and not at all expensive, and I would really recommend it.

If I ever find myself back in the Himalayas, I would probably go back to this

hotel. The service was excellent and Kurseong is a good place to relax and

start to get used to the high altitude and the cooler temperatures that you find

in the area around Darjeeling.
