    Place is good. Rooms are nice and view from room is also good but this place is too much lower than main road. We have to use 100 stairs. Food quality is not good. I think they didnot know how to cook chicken and other items.

    Zuluk had really chilly weather. The warmth of the welcome at the home stay makes you happy after a long drive. We reached earlier than the schedule, yet they the owner couple didn't wait for our refreshments. We booked only dinner and the breakfast next day, yet they prepared ready mix soup and fresh veg fritters just for our early arrival. Rooms are decent and cozy, but basic as we expected. It was too cold to take off our clothes, it's quite enough for a nights sleep. They don't have geyser. But they brought us hot water when we asked. Both in the evening and the next morning. Foods cooked were hot fresh and homely. We observed that the region cooks on a low salt ratio. But all foods were quite filling and the heat was required to cut the chills, you can also try the local 🌶️

    Awesome place with very well maintained guestrooms. The owner himself came down in the morning to prepare breakfast which was overwhelming. Enjoyed every bit of the nature here.

    we booked a room from 6th to 7th june and we were traveling from Gangtok but due to landslide we did not get permit and no cab driver would detour. we checked at tourism office at mg marg Gangtok and they also suggested for cancellation. but the manager mr Sandeep Chowrasia behaved badly and refused to return a penny. full payment was done as insisted by Sandeep during booking and it included food cost but even that was not refunded and we did not actually consume the food. very bad experience, never make full payment and be careful about this homestay.. Sandeep knew we were supposed to come from Gangtok and road was closed during booking time too but still he neither alerted us while booking nor helped us with refund
