Nice and warm place to stay, we stayed for 4 nights. Staff was very helpful. Food was homely and decently priced. Nice location, overall we were happy. They can do with more staff and taking dinner orders post 4:30 pm as well

this place was a sanctuary that we needed. They helped us to find some sightseeing and organized a driver for us. Only a short walk into town and very clean and lovely staff that were helpful. Comfy beds and great breakfast!

Nice clean rooms.. Clean and comfortable for people on a budget or just to spend the night.. Staff friendly and cooperative. No such facilities to write about. Note : Ground floor rooms get noisy in the morning / Back side rooms have a nice birds eye view of shillong..
