I stayed in this hotel last weekend. It was a family trip. Rooms were clean and good. The hotel was overcrowded and from the reception to restaurant, everywhere. An average hotel with average service, restaurant and cost. Probably they were running with less number of staffs. You will not get much option to stay in Shimoga so this is probably... More

We went to see Jog falls and stayed in this Hotel for a night, before anything I was pleasantly surprised to see Royal Orchid chain in this remote ( from Bangalore ) and old town in Karnataka when we were searching for accommodation and the experience was more or less what you expect from a Star hotel - decent rooms,...

Visiting Shimoga after ages and was very impressed with the development this sleepy hamlet has seen. I stayed in Royal Orchid and i must say that their property, service and hospitality is not lagging behind any of the bigger towns like Bangalore/Mysore. The club suite rooms are luxurious, tastefully done up. The mini bar well stocked and the bathroom opulent... More

We stayed at this Hotel between 15th and 17th August 2014 and overall experience was very bad. I am sharing specific feedback below 1. Food - Worst buffet where they charged full amount (Rs 418 per person) for horrible food.More than 50% of the items were over. The available items were either too cold or someone has to follow up...

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.
