Stayed in this hotel on business visit ....very poor services ...poor ambiance & stinking rooms ...kept changing & still very uncomfortable. Staff very brazen & uncourteous. Felt cheated of my money. Not recommended for any kind of stay. Overpriced & bad food quality to top it making it one of the worst stays as far as I can remember.

Best part of hotel is its restaurant. Good food and ambience. No swim pool. Situated in busy street . Heavy traffic in Shillong needs to b catered to reach hotel. Hotel is good for tourist who needs food and bed only. No recreation activities available. Hot water supply is an issue. Desk staff harsh and not polite , may b culture in Shillong .

Dear Guest, Thank you for writing us your feedback and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and the ambience at the restaurant however with regards to the hot water supply we look forward to renovating the property in near future with geyser facility in the rooms. In regards to the behaviour of the staff we make sure to train them properly on how to deal with guests in every situation but we don't think it is right to question on the culture of any place no matter what.

Rooms are Clean but very small. Toilets too are clean but Hot Water is available only from 6 am to 11 am and again from 6 pm to 11 pm. In some rooms even at those hours one has to run the water for 10 minutes plus for hot water to flow. Food is excellent and Restaurant staff- especially ans Isa and the other boys are excellent!! Their service inspite of us being there in Valentines Day was commendable! Location is excellent but One has to be prepared for Traffic Delays in Shillong!!

One of the only hotels in Shillong with a parking. Nice place, compact, nothing more. Average breakfast, though in a good ambience. They did give me packed lunch on demand. That was a 5 star effort. thanks

Location wise this hotel is good, in the market. Parking is in a basement. Although this is a 4 star property but don't compare it with other properties. Rooms are small and average. Interior and designing is normal. They keep on reminding you by various messages around to save water /electricity which I found very nice. Also clearly articulated any damage /loss / linen etc. everything will cost to you. They have amazing restaurant on terrace which served liquor /hookah. Room service available.
