One of the main reasons me and my friends were disappointed about the place was that when we reached, there was nobody at the reception to confirm our booking which we had done through YHAI. The staff was available there didn't know how to check bookings. Though we got our rooms immediately, during the check out after our 2 day... More

Peaceful surroundings and good food are the highlights of this place. We have booked this hotel by just a call few hours before(possible may be because of little lean season). It is situated in Upper Lachaumiere(5th building in left side of road) from malki point,shillong. It is 5 minute distance from the main police bazar from where you can get... More

The first thing you would notice about this place, it is spotlessly clean. Very well-maintained. Its a small property just off the Malki point which is very near to Police Bajar, the city center. A 2 min walk will take you to the Guesy House. To reach Police Bazar (PB as the locals like to call it), you have 2... More

I stayed here for a whole month and it was a very simple and lovely place. The location is beautiful.. set up on a hill out of the busy city center. Less than two Kilometers to Police Bazaar (center) or Laitumkhrah both of which are nice walks and if you don't want to walk there are buses and taxis. The... More

Our stay at White Orchid Guest house was over all medium rated. This private property has fairly converted into a guest house which is not at all self sufficient because the room which was allotted to us (Double Bedded Deluxe - Room No. 103), was less specious and what is more disappointing that the single wooden Almira provided in that...
