The "Nor-Khill" translates to the "house of jewels". Jewels here refer to the wealth of the natural beauty on display - the mountains, the valleys, the flowers and the fruits. The Kanchen garden in the hotel used to be a favourite spot of the Chogyal (King of Sikkim), who would set up his easel and paint for hours. Built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 around a beautiful garden, the Nor-Khill served as his royal guesthouse for receiving Heads of states and dignitaries.

The Nor-Khill Gangtok is now a luxury Elgin heritage hotel. The hotel is situated in the heart of Gangtok town, 5000 feet up in the Himalayas. A celebration of the elegance and grace of the Kings era in Sikkim. As you enter the hotel, warmth hugs you and makes you feel at home with a glass of sparkling cherry liquor and a silken Khada (scarf) draped around your neck. The lobby lounge of the hotel is resplendent in the bright folk art, design motif depicting dragons and flame symbols to thankas, the ornate bachu and chocsue.

The Elgin Nor-Khill has been restored to its original grandeur, snug and cozy in an interior decked with etchings of G.Douglas, lithographs of Daniell, period Burma teak furniture, oak floor boards and panelling, crackling fireplaces, candle-lit tables and strains of music from the grand piano, you realize the meaning of palpable 'old world charm. The hotel has played host to dignitaries like the US Ambassador and Crown Prince of Sikkim, writers Dominique Lapierre and Mark Tully, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Hollywood celebrities Shirley MacLean and Michael Douglas.

The hotel has stories to tell from the time of its first owner the Chogyal (King) of Sikkim in the 1930s. The 25 deluxe rooms and suites offer splendid views of the mountains and valleys. The Elgin Nor-Khill in Gangtok is a perfect base to explore the spectacular mountain scenery, pine forests and ancient monasteries. The Hotel is within walking distance of the famous M.G road (High street), cafes, restaurants and bars. A well-stocked library, games room and many opportunities for nature walks, make this luxury heritage hotel and hill resort an all season destination.
