The Shillong Club
Ranked #32 of 81 Shillong B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 June 2013

The front entrance is that of a club, but you won't be staying there.
Go to the back entrance, walk in at the bottom and go along a long corridor (ever seen "The shining"...) up a flight of concrete stairs and be greeted with a smile...
The rooms are spacious but not clean...not at all. I had to get someone to bring new sheets.
No hot water.
The beds are made of planks and a 5cm matress. Very very hard.
Evening food was good.
Price excessive.

Its a very old property...estd in 1878..!! rooms are very clean ..room service is very good. we stayed in the low cost budget rooms in the ground floor. It costs Rs.1560/- per day including tax. You will get newspaper daily..room cleaning daily in the morning with all fresh bed sheets,pillow covers etc.. Food quality and quantity is also very good. More over its a plesant staying in Shillong Club. Wards lake which is a sight seen in shillong is just in the back side of your rooms.. there is a garden in between the lake and your rooms.. one tennis cour is also there in shillong club..2 mins walking distance from the police bazar chowk.. very well located.

Dear Shillong Club,

The best thing you have is parking and location.

But you have not maintained the place.

Also the hot water problem needs to be solved. It is not possible that in this very day and age guests have to call room service for hot water for bathing.

Best wishes,
Affectionately,
Bheeshma

Old world club/hotel. Very cold inside. Lots of renovation going on. very LOUD marriage/reception party. average room service. Very large rooms, so room heater is not very effective. Dirty carpets. reception on first floor. no running hot water when we were there.

It is almost at centre place of Shillong. A few cottages and some RCC building multifloor. The reception is at Forst floor of RCC building. We stayed in Cottages. We stayed number of times. Earlier when we stayed a few years back the cottages had chimney with fire place inside. But now it is not there , replaced by room heaters. The cottages remain booked mostly. I found the cottage very good . Very near to the lake and within walkable distance is thepolice bazaar.
This is the main market place of Shillong. The food is OK. Marriage Party and Birth day party etc goes on in the club.

Room Tip: The cottags are better than rooms in RCC building

I stayed here with family in 2010. It was cold and the wooden rooms were excellent. Service is ok but food variety is limited. Problem is that the club remains heavily booked during wedding season. Overall good value for money.
