Shillong Club is located right in the Center of Shillong. The Grand Post Office in front while the Wards lake behind, makes the club a good spot. However, in the 1970's and 80's, the club was an exclusive place for the affluent. With time, the standard has dropped and is a pittance now. I had my wedding reception here years... More

Spent a night. was very convenient. adequate at a reasonable price. Old world waiters, thus slow. walking distance to Police bazar , the transport hub, therefore extra points. No automatic admission to the Shillong Club, since the hotel is run on contract

The best thing about this hotel was it's convenience because we were attending an event happening at the same location. However, I would not ever choose this place if there wasn't an event. It is way over-priced for what you get (2000 for ground floor and 2500 for second floor rooms.) There is only hot water from buckets which is... More

If you’re budget traveler, then go for it – I remember staying at this place when I visited Shillong years back as a small kid; the rooms were large, fully carpeted & had a very warm feel, with large fire-places. But after seeing it last time when we visited Shillong, I wouldn’t recommend it, since there are much better hotels... More

Well you do not keep any high hopes on this hotel, overall its well managed. Service is an issue. Connectivity and ease of commuting is good from this place. Do not ask for extra service you do not get response.

the room was tidy and staff was friendly, but the water pressure was terrible. at times, the toilet wouldn't flush. I picked up a nasty virus from food from the kitchen here and lost an entire day of my trip to chills and nausea

The Shillong Club has quite a few points in its favour but some downsides as well. There is a long standing issue with lack of hot water in the bathrooms. There are reviews noting an issue at least a year ago and it continues up to the present. Surely it is not rocket science to fix the boiler system. More... More
