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

We stayed at White Orchid for 5 nights. Our double room was clean with our own bathroom. There was no shower but a bucket to fill and use. The water was very hot. 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...

This is not a top rated hotel , you can say, but it is very homely. We were a team of 7 people out there with two children and an elderly person, but they had arranged everything for us. Rooms were clean with blankets, bathroom was good with clean buckets and hot water facility. Though the rooms on the ground... More

We enjoyed our stay in Shillong. The guesthouse offers very comfortable rooms with nice view into Shillong town. It's only a 15 minute walk from the city center and Police Bazar. The rooms were clean and showers had hot water. For some reason there's no geysir in the showers; you are left with a plastic stool and buckets. The bathrooms... More

The location is excellent as its little away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Excellent view from the hotel rooms. Most important is the hospitality of the staffs and the manager. The cooking staffs were excellent and the food served was freshly cooked and excellent taste. The food orders are taken well in advance so that they can... More
