I found details of White Orchid on Trip Advisor and after talking to Chetan the manager there, decided to stay there.... More

What a fantastic spot to stay in Shillong! After a wifi drought, we came across the White Orchid who were one of the only guest houses willing to put us up in Festival season and for a decent price. The real selling point here though, is the staff. The boys that work here are all extremely polite and courteous and... More

Good hotel, with very decent services and a remarkably helpful staff and manager, Mr Chintu. Food also very nice and the parking facilities were helpful considering the dearth of space in Shillong. It is also centrally located, so a great boon for visitors.
