When we booked Royal Orchid in Shimoga we were pretty sure we have picked the best place to stay in this quite serene town. We were a big group and had booked 11 rooms. Being in corporates and having stayed in many star hotels we have had some expectations set. Check in was seamless but the room allotted had 2... More

... and all of a sudden we’re there. Met by beaming valet and door service, and ushered into the lobby, Royal Orchid promised a lot when even our MakeMyTrip reservation was in the system (a first using international card) and Ayesha on reception greeted us beautifully. First impressions were very good, and even into the lowering ceilings of the lift... More

This is probably the best hotel in Shimoga town. Don't expect a fancy Royal Orchid like in Bangalore - this is a simple clean hotel right in the middle of town. Every tourist attraction around Shimoga (e.g.Jog Falls, Sringeri) is about a 90 minute car ride away and in different directions. The problem is also that going from one attraction... More

Till recently Shimoga didn’t have a good hotel to stay in. Its an appreciable efforts by Royal Orchid to have hotel in a tier 2 town. It’s a very new hotel centrally located offers large spacious rooms. They could have increased the size of the bathroom as its too small compared to the room area. Breakfast was good with a... More

We had booked a Club suite with a plan for a relatively long stay. Turned out that most of the club suites here seemed to be affected by seepage, bad quality of construction (So, better check twice before you book one on this property of Royal Orchid). We were initially provided a Club suite with seepage and I was quick... More

Didnt expect such a good property in shimoga. Great ambience, good service, buffet breakfast spread also surprisingly good. The rooms are large and so are the bathrooms. Excellent hotel for business travellers such as I.

Did not expect a hotel of this quality in a small town. Room was better than many 5 stars and cannot think of anything negative about the hotel. Excellent staff, super clean, great eating options, good location.

We wanted to visit Jog Falls from Bangalore in the monsoon and were looking for a decent place to stay nearby or on the way. Having stayed in other Royal Orchid properties before, I immediately decided on ROCS. It is about 100km or 2 hours from Jog Falls.
