Very bad communication level & hotel manager was drunk”. Last December I stayed here. The Guest House was in prime location of Shillong City. The rooms are neat and clean also enjoyed the simple homely food. The bird eye view from the roof top was amazing at night with chill wind. Everything was good enjoyed here except unaware of the...

Being an avid traveler across the world and having stayed in all kinds of properties I have never come across something like this.

This is a small and no-frills guesthouse. Very clean and comfortable. A limited menu is also available for room service. People are friendly too, but just do their work. Unlike other places in Meghalaya, I did not see any extra interest in making sure you are comfortable. A nice place, nevertheless! It also worked out quite economically for us, thanks... More

I stayed at White Orchid quite recently in the beginning of August and I have to say that I had such an awesome experience of the overall property. The biker manager (forgetting his name) is totally a rockstar and knows how to be hospitable yet firm at the same time. He made us feel at home and let us chirp... More

It was an overall pleasant experience to stay in White Orchid Guest House. Room facilities Bed, TV, water heater etc. were excellent at the price they charged. Room service was good. Location of the hotel is great. But I would like to draw the attention towards the cook as it was disappointing to speak with him. The quality of food... More

This spotlessly clean rowhouse turned hotel came in my itinerary after I saw its rating on Tripadvisor and is an extremely good place for a short stopover. The only drawback is that it is a place managed by a single chef and food variety is a question. To help matters there is a small but good outlet named Lovely Hotel... More
