I stayed at the Coniferous Resort with my wife and her parents for three days in the month of October 2012. The location of the resort is just right. Far enough so that you are not disturbed by the hustle, and close enough if you want to access the city center. You get share taxis (sometimes buses too) right in front of the resort. So, moving around the town is very easy. And if walking a few kms is no big deal for you, then you can explore the places in and around the resort as part of your morning walks. In fact you can walk to the Mawsmai cave, Seven Sisters waterfall, and the Eco Park from the resort.
The owners of the place, Ila and Bor are wonderful hosts. They are very helpful and really care about their guests. In fact, they helped me plan my sight seeing in Cherra. If you go to Cherra without your own car, just ask Ila or Bor, and they will arrange one for you. We just landed in Cherra in the morning and Ila and Bor arranged everything in a few minutes.
The staff members are equally wonderful. The manager, Mr Nani Dutta takes care of all your needs. You just have to inform him. Humble and unassuming, he does what is required, without a fuss. To be very honest, the kitchen staff members are young, but they more than make up for the lack of experience with their sincerity. You may not feel confident about their ability to deliver, but they do deliver, each time, every time. So, if you are planning to go for a trip and want an early breakfast, just let Mr. Dutta know and it will be ready at the right time.
In short, a nice, clean, beautiful place with wonderful people.
