Stay at Royal Orchid Shimoga was superb.

Very pleasent and helpful staff

Team lead by F&B Manager Ravi Ojha and his staff were very Good and provided great service

My stay was just planned for 1 day but had to extend to 5 days due to the great royal treament recieved from the staff

I was unable to leave the place

The stays was worth the money spent as serfvice was on par with a 5 Star deluxe class hotel

I would recomend Royal Orchid Shimoga to all travellers to Shimoga who want a 5 star hotel expereince at 3 star property

The hotel is one of the best things in shimoga. the staff was quick enough to check us in. we arrived late in the afternoon, so was feeling very hungry. we checked in quickly and wanted to have our lunch at he restaurant pinx. but to our disappointment the food arrived 30mins late. also the service was very slow. food was ok. but frm the next day, the service was gud. room was very neat and clean. loved their idea to save water. they were also kind enough to change the taxi from non ac to ac, as soon as we complained. the staff was also friendly and always taking care of my 18mnths kids who is always running here and there. overall it was a nice and pleasant stay with gud food. buffet breakfast was too good.

Room Tip: no particular views from the rooms, since its located right in the city. guess all the rooms are alike. also no need of visitors pics, as the rooms are just like the management posted. neat and clean, so any room would be a good room.

Well if your visiting Shimoga you wouldnt get any better than this. Though the city may not look attractive the hotel is a pleasant stay. For once i was left wondering how come the city has a good property like the royal orchid. The rates i got it at made it more pleasant as i bargained hard with hotel. The rooms are at par with any 3 -4 star hotel and the service is good. The only drawback is the hotel staff at the reception is not as trained as youd expect them to be but then i guess considering the place it was alright. Breakfast was pretty good and overall one would come out of the hotel with a pleasant experience

Hotel staff is very friendly and willing to help. Right from the getting directions to check out they were very helpful. Rooms are very nice and very clean. Nice variety of items in Breakfast. Quality of the food is very good.
We stayed for overnight in this hotel.
We will definitely stay in this hotel again, next time we visit to Shimoga.
After the check out we had an incident, in which our car's remote battery got completely drained and it was not unlocking, But the hotel staff took care of it, even though it was sunday, they found a shop who had that battery and got it replaced. Thanks to Hotel staff Mr.Shankar and Security guy who provided timely help... :)
Security guys in the hotel were very help ful in getting a proper parking even though the parking lot was full... :)
All in all it was a pleasant stay... :) We would recommend this hotel to everyone...

1.The rooms are at par with many star hotels

2. Well maintained and clean

3. Sumptuous breakfast and variety available

4. It is located at 10 minutes walk from shimoga bus stand. One can ask for Vinayaka Theatre and everyone there tells about it. The hotel is opposite to Theatre. With one piece luggage one can walk. With more it is better to take Auto.

5. The only problems was " The hotel reception staff or Manager does not know about the "King Club Miles program for King Club members. My self being King Club, after trying in th ehotel for 2 days, could not get info. Still now after 3 months , I am claiming miles with Royal orchid/King Club/
