Other good thing about this place is very good food .. For an avg price of 3k per night it was a special treat for my wallet. .. This... More

We were going to Jog falls from Bangalore and initial plan was to reach Jog falls by evening and stay in some hotel nearby. But as soon as I got to know of this hotel in Shimoga, I contemplated to change my travel plan, because I had already stayed in Royal Orchid in Bangalore (long time back) and that was... More

I stayed for 2 nights and had great stay at ROCS. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The rooms were spacious and clean. Also, their in-house restaurant Tiger Trail served superb food. They provide with midnight snacks as well. Their cucumber--tomato-cheese sandwich was excellent. They really got a nice chef. The buffet breakfast and lunch were decent and not... More

I stayed here for a night on 14th May 2015 and really had a excellent stay here! We went from Bengaluru and were tired by the time we reached Shimoga. I was little disappointed looking at the hotel location which is like bang in the middle of the town. But once I entered hotel everything vanished! Starting from a friendly... More

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
