We had a wonderful stay at Singell Tea Estate. My husband and I stayed for 3 nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed this place. It is a home away from home. We are from the Netherlands, and we were looking for an authentic experience. The serenity of the location, the amazing views over the Tea Estate and especially the great hospitality and delicious food make this a stay to remember. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a large bathroom with hot shower.
While breathing the air of the hills, we watched the sun go down on the balcony over the Tea Estate. Aruna was an excellent host, her English is perfect, and she helped us with plans around Kurseong and onward travel. Her family treated us to great dishes, and we got something different each day! It's a short walk along the road or a quick ride to the centre of Kurseong. Staying at Singell Tea Estate is also an excellent value for money option.

We had a wonderful experience staying at Singell Homestay. Aruna and family went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Right from picking us up from the train to taking special care of one our family members who felt sick; they looked after us really well. The rooms are simple and clean and have great views of the tea gardens. The entire family sat down to chat with us over some amazing home cooked food and we spent the entire evening together. We definitely have a new home waiting for us every time we visit Kurseong. Good food, Comfortable stay and Amazing people!!!

It's being honour to stay in Singell Homestay, every one in this family is down to earth and very caring, n about food what to say !! Its so tasty n delicious. The view from the home is awesome (if you are nature loving), the rooms are well decorated. We were there for 3 days, If anybody plans a vacation near Darjeeling, stay at least 1 day at Singell homestay, Kurseong. Thanx Aruna Ma'am for making our stay so special that I can't express in words..

Thanks Aruna and family for a great time and wonderful hospitality at your home -- we truly enjoyed and felt well cared for, as well as enjoying the delicious food. It felt like you went the 'extra mile' for us and I'll gladly recommend your cozy Homestay to my friends. Especially enjoyed the private balcony, and rooftop sitting area from where we could see down to the river, across the stately tea gardens, and up to the high Himalayas - magnificent. And quiet spot!

It was an amazing experience staying at the singell home stay. Everyone treated me like one of their own and we had a fantastic time staying there. Got to know a lot about their culture. The homestay is situated in a wonderful location from where we got the view of the toy train as well as the wonderful Singell tea garden. All the rooms were very nice and tidy & the food they cook was delicious. I loved my stay at Singell homestay. And looking forward to visit Kurseong again.

I have stayed there from 17th to 19th Dec, it's truly home away from home. Thanks to all the family members for excellent stay there. Hope to visit again.

Stayed at Singell home stay for three days in October 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed the stay with Aruna Pradhan and family. The homely stay was comfortable, simple and satisfying. This place is very nice for morning and evening walk in the nearby tea estate. The snow clad KANCHANJUNGA was visible in the morning sunlight and clear blue sky with naked eyes.
Food served are simple in homely atmosphere. One can easily visit Darjeeling, Mirik and other nearby places without worrying too much. The quietness around the Home Stay leaves one a chance to be alone in ones thought. The clear sky in the night allows you to watch all stars and constellations absolute clarity, often not possible while staying in a city like Delhi/NOIDA. Thanks Aruna for making my stay comfortable.

All the rooms are very clean and attached toilet specially. The room of the top floor is very well decorated with separate balcony. Behaviour of the family members are excellent and the quality of food is good too. Overall it is a peaceful and wonderful environment for couples and aged persons. All the family members are very helpful.

People who like hustle-bustle all the time can ignore the place. Others should definitely stay there. I regret for not staying enough. Everything was good, the hospitality, the rooms & cleanliness, the food, the family members & not to forget the view from balcony. Rooms were very cozy, the food...aah...what to say? The family members were so helpful & friendly.
If you want to plan or change your tour itinerary from there, simply ask Mrs. Aruna Pradhan. She will help you to decide because not only Darjeeling, there are lots of other places to go from there. As for me, I would suggest to stay at Singell Homestay in Kurseong, take the toy train at 7.00 am to Darjeeling, roam around the whole day and again back to Kurseong on the same train in the evening. I would definitely like to go there again in future and spend a few more nights.

Staying with the Pradhans at Singell Homestay was a wonderful experience. Right from when we reached Kuresong, they guided the local taxi on how to reach their place. It was as comfortable as staying at my own house. Great food (my wife got a chance to learn to make momos) and very clean rooms. The service of the tourist taxi was excellent, arranged by the Pradhans. Had a great time interacting with their entire family especially their son Adithya. Wishing them all the best.

Singell Homestay is very well maintained a small but very clean home away from home. Everything from food to room service is just pefect. Aruna and her family are very good hosts. All the best to them for a successful future.

Month of May - June is very hot in Kolkata. So we planned to spend a few days at Darjeeling Himalaya. After Chatakpur and Darjeeling we spent one day at Singell Home Stay, Kurseong. It is very clean, surrounded by lush green. Rooms are cozy and food is very good. The family who runs it is very nice. Hope in future, we visit again.

My Mom and me landed on the Singell Homestay rooftop on the 12th of March 2015 and what a stay it was. With such a beautiful view from the room as well as the verandah we hardly wanted to go anywhere. Competing with the view was the hospitality of the Pradhan - Lama family, one has to specially mention Aruna here. Yummy local food and great company and not too pricey. Best place to stay if you are visiting Kurseong. Highly recommended.

In the first week of January 2015 I went to Darjeeling for a holiday. On the way back we decided to stay in Kurseong for a day. I wanted to go to a hotel, while my wife wanted to go to a Homestay. I found Singell Homestay after searching in the internet. One call and the booking was done. We reached Kurseong by rail and they sent a car to pick us up.
We reached in about 5 minutes. Right from the reception that they gave us to the final goodbye, it was such a wonderful experience. They have 3 rooms for guests, we took a double room. The family is amazing, we felt at home and became part of the family! And the best part was we made momos together! Yes! It was really nice to learn how to make momos.
We loved the food, the service and the overall experience. Definitely a must stay for us every time we go to Kurseong. In fact we have decided to take a trip just to Kurseong next time and stay in Singell Homestay. It is the best holiday in the hills if you love a vacation in the lap of nature.
