this was my second stay in shillong with my partner. i booked the hotel a day before arriving over phone and we got prompt services even though we arrived late(at around 7.30 pm). the room provided along with the complimentary breakfast costed me rs.1540 inclusive taxes and the room was pretty clean and spacious with modern bathroom fittings, tea and coffee maker, tv, phone etc. and the best part was that they even provided a small fridge in this cost, which was a huge surprise.
the restaurant was very good and the complimentary breakfast was ok type. the prompt service of the restaurant deserves a special mention and still is a matter me and my girl are wondering about, how can they prepare so may items so fast???!!! overall it was a comfortable and great stay. loved it.

Room Tip: order your food just 10 minutes before you actually want to have it. they hardly take 10 minutes to deliver whatever items you order.

always take rooms with windows, which will be on your left side. though its name is lake view you will not be able to view lake from your room. if you open the window of your room you will see a slum. but apart from this staffs are very helpful.

You will find one chicken curry which i have never tasted in my life. beds are small and rooms are also very small. i have gone their for three days but on next day i have to shift from their to centre point.

never select this hotel during december and january. its terribly cold. they will give room heater but thats not enough.
One thing which is very good is their service and price.

You can see the lake coming outside of your room in the open area. Lake is attached to the hotel

Room Tip: Always Take cash with you in this hotel as credit card and debit card swiping machines are not available

My experience with the hotel is good. Location is superb. Food is good. Only disappointment is charging extra room rent in the name of lake view. Actually lake view rooms are having windows and other rooms do not have any windows. Guest service is good.

Very poor ventilation,Bathrooms with poor drainage, rooms without net fittings and without A/C, can't open windows as the Hotel rooms are opening on one side amidst bushes, walls are dampy and smelling.There is no gate/parking.However boys working are simple,good and food service is good. Food is also good.Transportation in Shillong, being a Tourist place is unjustifiably more.Can goibibo offer packages including good transportation?

Room Tip: Roos should be better ventillated/with A/C,fitted with nets on windows in absence of A/C.

Situated just behind the Ward Lake and close to the Police Bazar, location wise I will give it a 5 out of 5. The staff are very warm and welcoming and everything else in this hotel sucks. I had booked a Standard Room (without view) for two and was surprised to find that they do not have twin beds. I was told that they have a King Bed, but when I checked in, the size of the bed does not even come under Queen Size - its so small. On top of it, the room was so damp that fungus seemed to have developed on the walls and the spots were clearly visible besides the unbearable smell of dampness. Food quality was pathetic and I expected a better breakfast, however that too was a surprise - no buffet and on top of it when asked the menu, they had only bread toast, Aloo Parantha and tea / coffee. No Wi Fi and on top of it very poor network signal - this is not the place where you would like to come back with your family or with your colleague for business purpose. The funniest thing that I noticed about this hotel was that the Pillow Cover and Cutlery seeemed to belong to one of a the finest hotels in Shillong - Hotel Alpine Continental!

Room Tip: Stay away unless you do not have any option left in Shillong. And please do not be cheated by the Standard Room (with view) option. The view that you can get is rooftops of houses.
