“worst hotel in shiilong”
Reviewed 21 June 2011

Date:21.06.2011
1.poor food
2.poor service
3.A/C not working
4. Mattress too hard( hard as rock).

We had booked this hotel by going through the reviews on tripadvisor.com.
This was the biggest blunder , We checked in the hotel at around 7.30pm and was greeted by the courteous Mr.Doley. We were moved to the rooms. On the first look we told ourselves that this was it what we required. We were hungry and went to the resturant to order dinner. The resturant was very small ( seating capacity of about 15-20 peoples). It took them one hour to serve our first order, the paratha they severed was half cooked so we request to change, the waiter told that the paratha will take long time and we should order chapattis for fast service. It took another 30mins to severe the chappatis. We were refused cold drink and were told that they were out of stock( which wa not so as we later checked their stock room).
As we were having our food . BINGO!! we found a cockroache inside the dal.
A/c was not woring in the room (only the fan in the AC was working), ther was no cooling in the room.
Mattress were as hard as rock.Expect a severe back pain in the morning after having a good ninght's sleep.

Its location in the polo market makes it easy to quickly shop for cosmetics, medicines etc. Its also walking distance (about 15 mins) from the police bazaar where one ventures out for their shopping. The hotel rooms are spacious and well maintained. Staff is courteous and friendly. The restaurant is small but serves good food. Room service is a bit slow though. There is also free wifi access in all rooms.

Travelled to the North East to enjoy its splendor in the monsoon. The Majestic was definately a good choice which we made. The booking was done over telephone & unlike the other properties of Shillong, they agreed to block the room based on confirmation send over mail & over telephone.

The check-in was fast & smooth. The rooms are spacious & clean. Toilets were spotless & the housekeeing service was good. The room service was extended much beyond the promised 10pm.

The food quality was good & reasonable in cost. Complimentory wi-fi internet access was also provided.

The only aspect the property can improve is the time taken to serve the food after it is ordered.

Overall a nice place to hop in both for business & leisure travellers.

Majestic Shillong offers you great hospitality at a cost-effective price. the best part of the hotel is the hygiene and cleanliness of the rooms. The service is customer-centric and non-intrusive and the food is delicious - esp. the North Indian food. (Avoid Chinese here unless you are a die-hard fan)

The Hotel has excellent proximity to the Central Business District - Polo Market, Police Bazaar, Baraa Bazaar and the like as also scenic attractions like Ward Lake and Museum.

The staff is most courteous and invariably quick in attending to guest requests. Mamta the receptionist was particularly helpful throughout the stay. The surrounding area is a tad shabby and may bother some tourists but it's peaceful and safe all the same.

We would highly recommend this place for a delightful and comfortable stay while in Shillong.

When we planned our visit to Shillong and slected The Majestic Hotel , we were little apprehensive about the quality of the hotel as no review of the hotel was available on the net but to our pleasant surprise, the property turned out to be enhancer to serene beauty of Shillong. Hotel is situated near Polo Ground and little away from the main market. The hotel is newly built having neatly designed and spacious roomsl and can be held as real 'value to your money' kind of offer. Hotel is having small dinning space but service and food was excellent. We find parking space is problem at the hotel , otherwise it was pleasant stay.

  • Liked — neat and spacious
