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

We visited this hotel for our lunch on 26th Dec 2013. Location is excellent just beside the lake with very large glass windows. Service and quality of food was average.Rooms were clean. This hotel is maintained by Meghalaya tourism.

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

The Hotel maintained by the Meghalaya Tourism comes under the budget category and there is another Pinewood Hotel which is on premium side. I had opted for the Semi-Deluxe Room and the room size was good enough and much larger when compared to a Deluxe room in normal hotels. Hotel surroundings are cool and pleasant with silent atmosphere however if... More

If you are not sure if you want super-deluxe or not, just go for it... (we have been to the groundfloor (basic standard rooms) and well it smells like my cellar and I dont want to stay a week in my cellar) If you need to get breakfast at a certain time, maybe it is helpful to order room service....
