The Snuggery (this area is also right out of the Raj period and overlooks the famous 'Chowrasta' – the main public square of Darjeeling) lies adjacent and houses the famous 'Darjeeling Himalayan Club'. The Preferred and Superior accommodation can be found on this side in addition to numerous standalone cottages. All houses are set in gorgeous flowering gardens and shrubberies.
A beautiful English style house, with 'Preferred' accommodation, both upstairs and downstairs.

Colonial Suite Double
We are delighted to offer this very comfortable and spacy accommodation. Set within 'The Snuggery' area of Windamere one of the oldest colonial hotel in India, this cottage is 'standalone'. It is often requested by honeymoon couples and guests who seek a "cottage environment". It offers a double bed; a "living fire"; a change room, complete with dressing table and wardrobe; a beautifully designed bathroom and a delig htfully comfortable conversation area (with cosy armchairs). The accommodation offers a TV and telephone. It is complete with double-glazed windows and a 'vestibule' layout. Extra beds can be accommodated here.
Named after our beloved Burra Memsahib, Mrs. P.L. Tenduf-la (also known from the days of the British Raj as “Mary-la”). This cottage is a firm favourite with our guests, as it is situated by the flower beds in ‘The Snuggery’, and not too far from the main house activities. It is beautifully furnished with high grade Indian rugs and imported materials for the bedspread & curtains. The bathroom has been thoroughly upgr aded and leads out into a cosy change area. The cottage has a “living fire”, which greatly enhances the ambience of accommodation.
