Seri was a great host. He lives very near the railway station, so before I arrived, he made sure to contact me and tell me to meet him there. He picked me up and walked me the short distance back to his place. His family was very gracious, and his mother cooked some fantastic meals for me. Seri was always there for conversation or to help, though he made sure to give me privacy when needed. I enjoyed interacting with his brother, mom, dad, and niece. Music is the centerpiece of the house, and I enjoyed hearing Seri and his niece Mamisha practicing at different times. I even was able to jump in on a mini-jam session. The room was perfect, with access straight to the outside world in case you come in late and don't want to go through the house. There is a bathroom adjacent to the room for toilet and sink usage. Like most places in Darjeeling, it's a squatty potty, but if you're heading this way, this shouldn't bother you. The one minor difficulty was the bathing situation: it involved 35-40 minutes of heating the water before using, which (if I had more concrete plans) could have made timing tricky. Also, it's not really a shower, but hot water in buckets that you use to bathe. Again, not western standard, but perfectly fine given that you're in the Himalayas.
I didn't come with an itinerary, and Seri and his brother helped me plan out my days to make sure I saw the essential sites. Seri even took me out shopping the day before I left to make sure I was getting good rates on tea, etc. I had to get something tailored the day before I left, and the tailor wasn't going to be finished until 6:30am the next day- Seri woke up with me to go back to the tailor to get it, and then made sure I had a ride back to the airport. All in all, his service was fantastic. If you're going to Darjeeling, you're going to want to stay with Seri and his family.
We had a wonderful stay Seri and his beautiful family. Our room was cosy with mountain views just outside. The house is full of character and it was lovely to be in a house which has been loved for generations. Seri's Mum cooked such delicious breakfasts and took care to make a different dish each meal. We loved hanging out with the very interesting, very interested Seri, and his walks took us to places we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Highly recommended!
We only spent two nights at Seri's but I couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Darjeeling! The whole family is incredibly kind and welcoming, Mom cooks amazing food (including garden veg as previously mentioned by another) and the location is fantastic. Seri and family make wonderful recommendations about the area and are great to exchange ideas and talk with. The room is very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!
A really great location in walking distance of everything, with amazing views! Mum and dad were lovely and the home cooked food was incredible! Took us to parts of darjeeling we would not have seen otherwise, a really wonderful experience in a beautiful town!
YES! Good walks. Good talks. Great food. The best spot in Darjeeling, if you ask me. Seri and the gang are it.
Seri est venu nous chercher à la gare, puis nous a emmené chez lui à pied en 5 minutes, dans son petit quartier calme et bien placé en ville.
Notre train avait 23 heures de retard!!!mais Seri a facilement accepté de nous décaler les 2 jours prévus. Ouf!
Nous étions très vite à l'aise chez lui, grâce à la discrétion et la gentillesse de toute la famille. Les repas étaient excellents et copieux, et les chambres grandes, bien que assez sommaires. Ils nous ont même allumé le chauffage pour qu'on soit bien le soir et la nuit. La douche est à l'indienne, c-à-d au seau d'eau chaude et froide à mélanger!
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié les ballades en ville et alentours que nous avons fait avec Seri, il nous a emmené voir des endroits et des gens très intéressants!il est vraiment sympa et serviable !
bref, séjour authentique et reposant!
Ik was heel tevreden in Seri's Home Stay ! We hadden reeds een goed contact voordien en we keken er samen naar uit om muziek te maken. We maakten een mooie Song ' Toy Train '. Seri heeft mij goed opgevangen en ontvangen na mijn reis van Amritsar. Hij bracht mij overal naartoe : de botanische tuin, de Happy Tea Valley Estate, Tiger Hill, ... Seri neemt zijn tijd en een hebben samen mooie momenten beleefd. We hebben samen een workshop gedaan in een lokaal Montessorischooltje. Dankzij Seri is mijn Verblijf veel rijker geworden, hij brengt je op plaatsen waar toeristen niet komen.
De familie van Seri is heel aangenaam, behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Zijn mama maakt lekker eenvoudig eten, we ontbijten samen en s' avonds is er een heerlijke maaltijd voorzien. Ik heb genoten en geleerd van de eenvoudige levensstijl van deze mensen. Mameescha, Seri's nichtje zingt heel mooi ! Dank je Seri & Familie !
Thanks for the review .
Staying at Seri's home was fantastic. Everyone was so kind to me, starting the moment I walked in the door. Seri and his friend showed me around Darjeeling and helped me figure out how to get back to the airport and his mom took care of me while I was sick and helped me out around the house. Everyone was so accommodating and so kind, it all went better than I could have imagined.
As for the location, I thought the neighborhood was great as well. The house was within walking distance to the major tourist areas and it was quiet and felt safe. The accommodations were comfortable and clean and the food was great!
Thanks for the (website hidden) was great hosting!
