“Great owners and excellent food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Firstly, cherrapunjee does not have many options to stay. The Cherrapunjee resorts are always booked, polo orchid is ridiculously overpriced and Sa-I-Mika park looked like a scene from a horror movie.We were forced to stay in coniferous, for lack of any other option.

The heart of this place are the owners and the the staff. They are really warm and try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The owners are always ready for friendly conversations.

The rooms are very average; ours was stinking and could be changed only on the second day. The new one was stinking a little less. There is a lot of old, unwanted furniture in each room which is useless and just makes irritating creaking noises. The bathrooms are not the best you can expect , the only savior being the hot water geysers.

The food though limited in variety is very good. The preparation will remind you of the food back home.

Overall a value for money place with great people running it. Some renovations are going on and hopefully the rooms and amenities will get a face lift.

Dear Guest, Thank you for saving time to post your review of our hotel to trip Adviser and we really appreciate your stay in our place. Reviews such as yours are very important and we treat each review as a learning experience and self improvement .Regarding stinking of rooms may we clarify a bit, as you know Cherrapunjee is the place which received the highest rainfall in the world, during monsoons there is heavy downpour accompanied with dense cloud and moisture concentration which enter the rooms and makes the linen items to become moist and damp and it is only natural for the room to produce a bad smell, this happen only when there Is continue rainfall for days on end which happen during your stay. However now we are thinking to keep some anti moisture or dehumidifier substances if possible so that our guest will be comfortable during their stay.

Its the best place to stay and experience the beautiful natural beauty and unique wonders around it, most tourist spots are easily accessible given the advantage to get the chance of revitalizing oneself with all the sights around. The short distance of the resort gives undue advantages, enhancing oneself to feel like at home. Its indeed the perfect resort, worth revivifying the purpose of holidae.

Stayed here after booking with BlueHills travel in Guwahati. Great value room and very friendly welcome. Easy to find with secure parking and lodgings for our driver. The best thing about Coniferous Resort was the food! The restaurant was packed at lunch and dinner with guests and travellers passing through. Very tasty food and large portions which is important after climbing 2000 steps back up from the natural tree root bridges! The room was good with a TV and en suite and warm bucket shower. Room was a little cold at night in November but we got an extra blanket and we slept fine. We did a couple of tours from here which the staff at Coniferous were able to advise us on. We had a great time and appreciated the hospitality and especially the tasty food! My wife and I would definately recommend it to other travellers.

This is a decent place with simple and clean rooms.

The entire campus is small with just a few rooms. It has a small stream behind the facility and all the important 'tourist' locations in and around Sohra can be reached easily.

Location: Perfectly located on the outskirts of Sohra and you can reach the town which is only a 5 minute walk from the resort.

Acco: You get clean simple rooms. The toilets are maintained clean and you get clean sheets and towels daily.

Food: You really don't get much in terms of food here as they have a very small kitchen. You need to inform them well in advance for anything to be cooked for you as supplies are hard to get.

Staff: There really aren't many people here. It's just one family that runs the place.

Overall: Good

My suggestion would be plan your stay and inform them in advance so that you get food also arranged there.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same. There isn't any specific room to choose from.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same... No real big option here.

The location of the resort is really good and all the sightseeing locations are easily accessible. Owners and hotel staff were warm and helpful. Although the bathrooms were small and didnt have a shower but clean enough. The food was cooked according to our preferences. Overall a pleasant experience.
