I stayed for two days in june 2014. Rooms are neat and tidy. Hotel is located in centre of city. Its very near to golf course ground. However rent of rooms are very high which does not justify value for money. Service during dinner was very slow. We had to wait for more than an hour for my order to... More

Stayed in this hotel for about 12 days on a business visit to Meghalaya. The location of the hotel is good; within walking distance to the central business, shopping district. Most commercial establishments and government offices are within 10 to 15 minutes from the hotel. Staff are polite and try to be helpful, but not quick and efficient. Hotel provides... More

Loved this place as a group of four guys, we stayed here for one night during our visit to many places in Northeast, it was one of the best places we stayed in, loved the general atmosphere of the rooms. The breakfast in the morning was also very good. The only annoying part was one of the staff at the... More

We stayed in a boutique room in hotel polo towers. The room was small but beautiful. It was more expensive than it should be. The restaurant was nice with great hospitality and delicious food. Especially, The terrace barbeque was situated at a nice location. Staff was friendly.Wifi was not working. Overall it was an average stay in hotel polo orchid

Comfortable, warm. With good food and great hospitality. The best part was finding a wonderful driver. I was safe and went along with him to see entire Shillong. He also clicked amazing pictures and was comfortable with the camera. A wonderful journey with comfort at the Hotel.

I along with my family stayed for two nights on 14th and 15th April 2014 in Hotel Polo Towers at Room Number 301. I wonder how they have managed to get a 4 star. The room hardly matches that category. Furniture was old – needs replacement. Paintings are coming off the wall. There were cracks on the wall of the... More

From the website, it looks gorgeous but in reality it is far from it. Recent trip to Shillong was full of nightmarish experience. In the height of winter, the bathroom attached at the end of the corridor has an open ventilator and is freezing. With no central heating, each room has a room heater depending on the visitor's luck. The... More

I stayed in this hotel in July 2012. The check-in was smooth and the room was clean. The staffs were courteous and the food was delicious . One should try the sizzler and tomato soup. The room service and bar were satisfactory. Only problem was with hot water in the bathroom, which was not readily available.

Nice property, excellent and varied food options, and central location marred by an argumentative front desk. We stayed two separate nights. The first one started bad. Everything at the front desk was an argument - a second key was against policy or it will not work, cannot accept debit card though the policy says they do, manager will not talk... More
