I was not happy with the commercialisation of Shillong Hotels and home stays in the past few years, and therefore was looking out for a different place to stay in Shillong this time, where i periodically go for work. 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

Chetan the manager could not help us enough, nothing was too difficult for him. The rest of the team were also very helpful. We end got to... More

Great location in the city and a decent price. Although, I would have liked greater comfort. I faced two inconveniences: a) entrance to the room was through a Liliputian doorway and corridor through which I had to pass, with back considerably bent b) many rooms come with non-attached bathrooms, but this one took the cake: the bathroom was located on...

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.

We had booked a 3 bed room for a night. The location of the guest house is little away from city centre, towards south of the city. This makes it better as you can avoid all the city traffic while doing excursions to southern parts of Meghalaya e.g. Cherapunjee, Dawki etc. It is located in a peaceful neighbourhood. You are...
