“Superb hotel in small town”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Royal Orchid Central in Shimoga is one of the best hotels to stay in the area. Located centrally in the city, it is a clean and nice place for the business traveller as well as tourist to neighbouring areas like India's highest waterfall - Jog.
The rooms are spacious and well furnished. Food quality and options are pretty good too and service satisfactory.

Good 3 year old Hotel in a busy town The room and toilets were clean and the place looked modern compared to the city. Check in was smooth and the valet will take care of the parking. We were given inter connecting rooms as we travelled as a family of four. Looks like this is the only good Hotel in Shimoga. The locals frequent the place for their functions according to staff.
Since it is on the road, not sure the rooms on the front side of the hotel will be a good idea. Sleep quality will be compromised. Early morning check out took some time. The staff was helpful and packed us some breakfast.
The quality of food which was served in our rooms bordered between average and poor. Saw a very nice pub in the hotel and unfortunately did not have the time to visit the place.
Surrounding areas are busy with roadside shops, restaurants, hotels, pharmacies and groceries. It was only a night’s stop over en route to our destination. Shimoga is 80kms from NH4 and of that, 40km stretch is bad on the Hospet-Hairhar-Shimoga SH25. Travellers use this hotel to stop over en route to major destinations and the star is Jog falls which is 110 kms away.

The good feedback is on food, good choices and taste buds tingling food but they take time to serve in restaurants. The hotel is more a sort of business hotel where people will not prefer longer stay, rooms are small but amenities in terms of bed, TV, toiletries extra are good. Shimoga is tourist destination somehow in this hotel u do not feel the calmness of holidays... Maybe the space is less Nd this is what we felt when we visited in off season. Anyway only good hotel in that area and is worth if u need to stay for 1 (2) nights

We were on a road trip and had decide to stay over in Shimoga for the night. And we had to booked any place because we want to see the rooms before we booked them. Went around few hotels and to our surprise the rooms were all booked. There was some conference happening at Shimoga the next day and thats why lots of people in Shimoga. We enquired at Royal Orchid and they were full as well. But then luckily there was some cancellation and we got a room. (Sorry about the long story before the review :) )
Goods:
Neat rooms and bathroom
Great breakfast

Not so good:
A/C control was weird.
A bit to the expensive side.

We stayed for a night en route to Jog Falls - the room was nice, but they had a very loud DJ party going on downstairs which was disturbing and I complained to the reception immediately on arrival. They arranged a room on the farthest floor away from the basement and after that it did not bother us, but not sure about the other guests. The dinner restaurant was average - and seemed to be severely understaffed. But the worst experience was the breakfast next morning. We could see the same harried staff who had served us dinner the previous evening also manning the crowded breakfast restaurant. It was really crowded and due the severe shortage of staff, there was food and dirty dishes all over and the whole experience was awful. Hopefully, they will improve on this aspect of their hotel.

Seems like the only comfortable & upscale place in Shimoga. Rooms were comfortable, bathrooms were nice, room service was reasonable, breakfast was nice - overall a nice place to say if you are in that area.

No spa or swimming pool but provides pretty good value for money accomodation (business class rooms + breakfast buffer) at Shimoga, the location is like central to the various tourist routes: Agumbe, Kemmanagundi, Jog Falls, Kollur which radiates from this place like a star configuration. Food is decent but their pub is too loud and noisy.
