          Best Hotel on JN Road”

          Pros: Best Value for Money hotel. Ganesh Tok and Tashi View Point in nearer. An in-house restaurant that offers quality food. A nice view of Gangtok city can be seen from some rooms. A small garden is available on the first floor to enjoy coffee/tea. Cons: A bit far from M G Road and main market You have to pay 150/200 per cab to travel to the hotel from market Furniture quality can be improved

          Great place in Sikkim-terrific hotel ”

          This hotel is excellent. From the rooms to the location in the hills, this is a wonderful property. The staff is very nice & always helpful to you. The view from the rooftop is incredible. I spent a lot of time sitting in this area taking in the beautiful views. The owner even said hello to me & gave me tips for tours which I took. I first only booked 2 nights but enjoyed so much I wound up staying 6 nights ! If you come to Sikkim be sure to stay here it’s great.

          Beautiful view, friendly staff”

          Some guests complain that the location is far from city center but that's why we chose this place. We wanted a relatively quiet place with excellent views. This place met our expectations. It should cost 200-300 rupees by private taxi to get here from bus stand. If you can get to shared taxi stand, it should cost 30-40 rupees. It's a long walk so I don't recommend trying to get here with luggage. Wifi is a bit spotty. Good hot shower. Decent on site restaurant. Small stores next door for basic snacks. Only 10 minute walk to very average zoo (but nice nature walk) and incredible views from nearby monestary. But most importantly, if you have room facing the town, you can watch the clouds roll in and out from your window.

          Great hospitality. Owner stays in the campus and pays attention to any issues immediately. Nice fresh homely food. Its little away from town on the hills but nice location.. Though not very luxurious, certainly recommend for those who are looking in budget but yet decent and away from the crowd. Owner arranged for camp fire in the night and is very interested in hospitality of the guests..thanks

          For peaceful stay”

          We visited Gangtok in end of April 22 and stayed till first week of May. Griffon's nest was the exact stay we were looking for. Peaceful, clean and secluded. As visiting from a big city we do not wanted to stay near city center. This hotel was cozy, with homemade food that can never make you sick and very family like staff. Though it is a bit away from MG Road but it is very beautiful at night and morning.

          Decent and delightful stay!! ”

          One could expect a cosy stay at The Griffons' Nest Hotel and Restaurant. The staff is very polite and take cares of the guests in a homely manner. The food is just like home. If you want to enjoy views and want peace from the hustle and bustle of the market and town it's the best choice!! Also places like Ganesh tok, Enchey monastery are nearby!!

          Rooms in the picture looks different than reality. Rooms were not cleaned. Not worth money for a stay.

          Nest that beats the rest. ”

          Griffon's Nest is a solemn retreat located high above the rest of the Gangtok city and the tranquility and hospitality of this dwelling is what one needs to unwind and recharge oneself. A must for the birds who love to fly at higher altitudes.
