Well maintained clean and spacious rooms, centralized ac , clean toilets, friendly and helpful staff and good food.. A little overpriced, but definitely value for money... Also it's quite close to the Tiger n lionsafari camp

It was a terrible disappointment to visit the Royal Orchid after a gap of three years. Having enjoyed superb hospitality during my business trip to Shimoga, I was determined to take my family there.I was sure my wife and son would have a wonderful experience. In fact it turned out to be the opposite. En route to the town I... More

Good hotel though very expensive for such a city where everything else is priced reasonable. Hotel can provide more amenities if demanding such big price. Chef is good so taste of food is very good. Dinner buffet was nothing great hence tried only in room dining and the breakfast buffet.

This was the second stay at royal orchid, Shimoga. There are not many options in Shimoga and this is the only decent place to stay. Qualifies more as a business hotel. Located in the heart of town, families may find it claustrophobic. Very sweet and friendly staff, special mention to the bartender at the lounge :) Found the parking lot... More

Well if you have been to the town of Shimoga this hotel is certainly out of place by looks! It's got the shine and gloss of most 5/4 stars and ambiance which will perk up your expectations....

Good hotel. Good hospitality. Nice staff. Open parking was a big turn down. Food was ok and not great. However, Shimoga didn't seem to have a lot of high-end restaurants in the vicinity leaving out this as the only option. Being from Bangalore the prices looked very reasonable but in Shimoga terms they may be tad expensive. But most importantly... More
