We stayed there in October,2015 during a family trip and booked three semi deluxe rooms. The rooms were large but damp, poor maintained, toilets and others amenities were just the basic. Though we got 24 hours running hot water but other condition of the rooms were very poor. Only the thing made us feel at home was the ever smiling... More

The best thing about this hotel were the staff - they were always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are smelly and have carpet which feels like it's never washed. Hot water was good. Food was so so-veg curry came cold... but the prices are cheap.

Best hotel in Shillong at this rate. We stayed here in Feb 2013 during our Cherrapunjee visit. We didn't book any hotel in advance. After reviewing many hotels suggested by Taxi driver, we were not satisfied and it was very costly. I then call Orchid Hotel reception and it took Rs.200 in taxi to reach there. It was just brilliant... More

Only nice thing about this place is the awesome view of the Umium lake from the large dining hall. Other than that, they have nothing else to boast. Rooms are untidy & uninviting, very badly maintained. On top of that, this place is quite far from Shillong town, not convenient. Food was not bad & they have ample parking space,... More
