Our stay at White Orchid Guest house was over all medium rated. This private property has fairly converted into a guest house which is not at all self sufficient because the room which was allotted to us (Double Bedded Deluxe - Room No. 103), was less specious and what is more disappointing that the single wooden Almira provided in that room was totally unusable.Staff were very good, polite and cooperative and I must appreciate for their prompt service all the time.It is mention-worthy that one day during my staying over there, I left a fair amount of cash on the bed inadvertently, after returned back I found it intact though the staff were doing the housekeeping.I must appraise them for honesty.
However, the location is very problematic because we used to journey to police bazar area or the central point of Shillong where market and everything is available, and for this disadvantage I would not like to recommend this Guest house. But who like to stay away form hustle n bustle of the city this house is ideal for them.
I would like to suggest the management that they should enhance their limited fooding facility to full fledged one else one need to travel minimum 4 km to have proper food and the price must be reasonable than present one.
At last I can say the we had a mixed lodging experience in Shillong.
