“Coniferous Resort Cherrapunji”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Seemed like an utter waste of precious time. Ila & Bora are great hosts, but - lousy location, noisy customers ( mostly families from Gujrat & Bengal), terrible food, average rooms. Most of the rooms are in the basement - devoid of views

Room Tip: Move further up to Halari. The same price almost,you have a more central location, super food &...

The worst and most terrific experience of my hotel stay with my family after spending a good chunk of money. Be aware of staying there and of the travel agents.I was having a lot of hope of staying there but highly disappointed. The colour of the room is green soaking the light, size of the bathroom is hardly 3*3,service is of poor quality.I along with my family had to stay as we did't get accommodation in Polo Towers and Holiday Resort in Cherapunjee.

I stayed here with may family here for one night, and found the place to be extremely clean cosy & Economical!! The only thing that I didnt appreciate was that I wasnt told about any extras I would have to pay for Driver Accomodation/ Extra bed etc while booking.. I am aware these charges do exist everywhere but it was a little annoying when the staff kept knocking on the door every 5 mins to tell us about some or the other extra we would have to pay. Plus I think the owner's abscence was being taken disadvantage by the staff as I have read good things about the owners in previous reviews... But all in all if you are clear about all the payments, its a great place to stay in Cherrapunji!! Near to the Seven sisters falls, ECO park, and as an add on they have a stream flowing under their Porch!!

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good...

We were lucky to get a family room having 4 beds. The room was extraordinarily clean.. we actully saw staff washing buckets with cleaning liquids ;-)

Even the food was excellent and since we order our dinner and breakfast well in advance there was absolutly no waiting for food and it was served hot..

They have facilities for car-parking and drivers' accommodation as well.

Overall I would certainly recommend this place :) :) :)

Have a great trip :)

We were lucky enough to get two rooms without any reservations during the weekend. Luckily the owner of the resort, Mr. Bosha happened to be there too. Very helpful and friendly person. We had a great time talking to him. Also, he dropped us to the 'Double Decker roots bridge' on a Sunday morning when we couldn't get a taxi. The staff is very humble, very helpful & co-operative.
The food was good too. Later that night we went to Polo Orchid for dinner, only to find out that the fancy hotel was filled with bugs, bad service, bad food at a very high price. If I ever go the Cherrapunjee again I'm definitely staying at Coniferous Resorts.

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.
