A small boutique hotel - with 12 nice rooms. The staff go the extra mile to provide any extra furniture you want in the room. Nice space in which lounge and have coffee or a chat. Nice library with some rare books as well - and you can use the library for your business meetings. The terrace on the first floor is a nice place to sit in during winter days. WIFI is free and functional (unlike some of the other hotels in Shillong)Food is very good, with lunch and dinner cooked after consulting the guest. Breakfast is decent, not a lavish spread. The staff always available for anything you might want. When I was there there were two nice events where a book reading and photo narrative of Himalayan region were there - and the guests are invited. The family that own the property are always there looking after guest comfort and the smiling staff always willing to help. In a long long time I have not seen such service in a hotel. An the room rental was less than 50$!
