It was a weekend family trip in the month of May 2018. Situated in higher Cart area, within the lap of the nature enclosed by the trees and orchids. The hotel, benfish tourist lodge kalimpong and particularly, the family room was very huge and elegantly adorned with a pleasant stunning tiny personal room (with dressing table and full-size mirror ) and a common balcony. Kanchenjunga can be seen from the balcony. The room has one bed, 2 chairs and a middle table with CTV. View from the balcony was awesome. The balcony was giving a 180-degree view of the ridge and the way to Kalimpong market.

It was a weekend family trip in the month of May 2018. Situated in Upper Cart area, in the lap of the nature surrounded by the trees and orchids. The hotel, benfish tourist lodge kalimpong and especially, the family room were very big and elegantly decorated with a nice beautiful small private dressing room (with dressing table and full-size mirror ) and a common balcony. Kanchenjunga can be seen from the balcony. The room has one double bed, two chairs and a center table with CTV. View from the balcony was awesome. The balcony was giving a 180-degree view of the ridge and the way to Kalimpong market.
This benfish tourist lodge kalimpong has a well-protected car parking area. It was a fantastic view of the night. A big bathroom with all the amenities (with geyser) also attached to the room. I have got the room at Rs. 1000/- per night (booked online) and it was real value for money. Lowest Room rent compared to other Hotels in the vicinity and facility being almost the same. Water from aqua guard supplied in room. Mineral water – chargeable. The staffs were courteous and prompt. The housekeeping was also good. The benfish tourist lodge kalimpong was also ideally located near Govt. Bus/Taxi stand and the main market is at walking distance (10 minutes walk).
However, there is nothing which can be described as an activity. But since it was in the market itself and hence you got so many things to do. Overall, I would recommend this benfish tourist lodge kalimpong for a family night stay. In Kalimpong, there are lots of good places to visit, from Rabindranath Tagore’s home (Chitrabhanu ), Cactus Park, Delo Hills, Morgan House, Golf Course to adventures sport like paragliding to river rafting.
The bad things are-
# Washroom should be cleaned more.
# Surroundings can be beautified more as they have the basic infrastructure.
# Two big and small ponds can be developed.
# Garden can be maintained well.
# Washroom mugs and buckets must be replaced.
We stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights. Orchid tourist lodge run by BENFISH was located at Uppercart road near hotel Garden Reach at Kalimpong. A copy of a valid photo identity card submitted at the time of check-in. Check-in time is 12 noon and check out time is 11 am. It is about 5 minutes by car from the main taxi stand. The restaurant is a big thumb up for the lodge. Food quality is excellent & the price is also low compared to other hotels in hill station e.g.
Boneless chilly chicken with 8 standard pieces of chicken costs Rs 150/plate.
Veg Thali- Rs. 120/plate
Chicken Thali- Rs. 140/plate
Fish Thali-Rs. 150/plate
Moreover, all the food staff serves hot. The behavior of the manager and all the staffs were awesome. The manager arranged a cab for sightseeing and drop down to NJP railway station at a reasonable price ( as per my comparison ).Contact details-
