We were on our way to Cherrapunji and decided to stay at the Tripura Castle. As mentioned it is on the outskirts of town, but considering how crazy the traffic in Shillong is, this place is an oasis of calm. The rooms are charming but the mattresses are indeed too hard and need updating. The staff are happy to build a fire in your room which makes the chilly nights more bearable. Indeed the staff are excellent - well trained and eager to please. We asked the hotel to make specific vegetarian food for us (not on the menu) and they did a very good job of accommodating our wishes. We wanted to walk in the forest behind the hotel, which the woman at the front desk said was not possible. However, we did indeed find a way there and walked all the way to Shillong Mountain which has a wonderful view of the city and surroundings. A nice thing to do if you want to avoid the city. It isn't cheap, but we enjoyed our stay there.
