Lake View? Please don't be misled by the name, lake visible only from lobby entrance, not room. From room you shall see the employees quarter of Shillong Club.
Ok this is the fourth or fifth Shillong hotel i stayed in and would love to go back again for a good nights sleep given the reasonable price, very down to earth friendly staff and peacefull quiet location.
111 the room i stayed had no windows as with all rooms to the right from entrance, so it took me some time to adjust.
The clean and comfy bed plus a clean toilet with soft spotless towel was the good point, but later at night i was dissapointed to see the cable TV reception quality.
There was a surprise in store though, they had a mini fridge below the almirah, even the most expensive Shillong hotels don't give you fridge. So for the over ordered dinner and beer we did not have to worry.
The room had a small geyser so one need not wait for long time for the hot water to arrive from far away as the case with most hotels.
Next morning breakfast was filling with simple non spicy alu matar tarkari and luchi plus the usual corn flakes bread butter tea. On day 2 we were offered alu paratha with curd with super duper special masala chai. Yeah i would never forget the tea.
So if you are not too fussy its a ok place. Its a place more like a guest house not luxury * property. The staff work hard and tend to your every need like getting something after the shutters are down in the market.
The most important thing i liked was the quietness and temprature diffrence from Police Bazar. Since the hotel is beside the lake, its cooler here, no sweat.
I have spent more money in smaller hotels in Police bazar with dirty toilet & rooms with hairy-hard bed, dirty worn out towels etc so this place was ok for me for the price.
I would go back again and recommend it to family and friends as well.
Just one request to hotel lesee, make sure that the cable connection is proper.
