A return visit did not disappoint, although under different management, it was still a wonderful place to relax, where you are looked after most royally. The rooms are beautifully furnished with very comfortable beds, and pretty bedding. The staff are all very helpful and attentive, and several seem to have multi- functional roles. We had a really interesting tour of the tea-factory, even though the factory was not working at the time. Unfortunately owing to the complete strike in the Darjeeling area in the previous 3 months, resulted in the loss of this year’s crop. The strike had also meant that the gardens surrounding the bungalows were not so immaculate, but I am sure this will be remedied soon. The.views of Kanchenjunga ( 3rd highest mountain in the world,) are stupendous if the weather conditions are right. We had a lovely guided walk down to the river, and then along river bank to bridge that crosses into Sikkim ( you are not allowed into Sikkim without a permit). We were then treated to a wonderful picnic by the river before getting a lift back up to Glenburn in one of the estate vehicles. Would definitely like to return for another little piece of heaven!
