To start with, the hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of the Police Bazaar, so if you are in search for serenity, this is the place to be. The entrance makes you feel as if it you are home. The rooms are clean and has the basic amenities. The food is also good. We were a group of... More

We stayed for one night in their executive room. We chose this hotel based on all the good reviews it had got. What we saw was quite the opposite. We paid 2900/- for one night for two people with breakfast complimentary. Things that were sub-par 1. They do not provide bottled water, rather the water was kept in a glass... More

However, this time, when I had wanted to visit Shillong on work, and planned to stay here, as usual, I got the nastiest shock, when The guy who looks after the... More

The location of the hotel is on a tad narrow road, then again in shillong that is to be expected I guess. we stayed there in October 2013. The rooms are decent and not overly spacious. The bathroom could do with a bit of renovation. The inhouse restaurant is also good. The front desk personnel are also helpful and ready... More

The ambience and landscaping is pretty. Staff is very hospitable. Food needs to be of better quality. But if one wants to stay away from the hustle bustle of police bazar and in a calm and peaceful place this is decent. Although Cafe Shillong is the best but this place too is very decent, very quiet and makes for a... More
