Property was good. Facilities were excellent but people who are managing the show are spoiling every thing. Food taste was below average. Room Service was late. Billing process was incorrect. Front desk person was not only suborn but rude. They calculate tax on the room rent before considering the discount hence unnecessarily charging more from the guests.

Its a beautiful hotel situated right next to the lake. The rooms are huge and made in traditional style. The food is average and a big problem if you are veg. Preferably stay in the newly renovated rooms.

Nice hotel. Good service. Little costly but worth every penny.Near to Wards lake shillong. Enjoyed the ambience of good old bar. But little proper maintenance of the hotel will make the stay of future guest more enjoyable.

Cosy yet in need of some serious renovations, this hotel typifies the era of Hill Station architecture. However it has been neglected over a considerable period,- hence the rotting door frame timbers in my room. The service staff were most willing and the food great. The reception area has a special charm, and the bar a reminder of time gone-by.... More
