Reviewed 28 September 2013

this hotel is bit away from centre point but very homely. staffs will try to give service but due to lack of linfrastructure they will not be able to give you the same. . food is ok. you can stay their if you have budget constraint but for 1 -2 days

This hotel is having rooms in the type of Double Bedroom, Four Bedded Room and Deluxe Rooms. Earlier we booked four bedded rooms over phone. When we have reached on seeing the rooms we have surprised because the rooms are very worst. Then we have seen ordinary double bedded room. That is also not OK. Then we have availed Deluxe Room. Deluxe in the hotel is good and very spacious good looking. Foods in the restaurant is also good and cheap.

Room Tip: Always go for deluxe rooms in the hotel.

If you are not sure if you want super-deluxe or not, just go for it... (we have been to the groundfloor (basic standard rooms) and well it smells like my cellar and I dont want to stay a week in my cellar)
If you need to get breakfast at a certain time, maybe it is helpful to order room service. ;)
So basically it is okay to stay there but not the best experience of our trip through India.

Room Tip: Check for construction site otherwise it may be loud.

The orchid hotel put up with 20+ of my foreign friends and family for my wedding and were still smiling at the end of it, bless em. The deluxe and super deluxe rooms upstairs are big and airy with private balconies and walk in wardrobes. The beer in the bar is cold and the food in the restaurant is yummy, book ahead for dinner. The center of town is a 10min walk away and you're also on the public transport route. Overall a great government run hotel offering a pleasant stay...when not overrun by phareng

Stayed on 29th April 2013. We took a Deluxe Room which costed us about Rs.2,000/-

Room- The room's are spacious with a attached balcony, closet room and decent sitting in the main room.It seem's a great deal for just 2k but at night felt there were bed bugs

Location - 10 to 20 drive away from main market police bazzar

Service- Terrible, the restaurant takes the last order by 9:30 and after that you wont find anyone around- wont even get a bottle of mineral water-no room service. Our waiter served us our order and disappeared. We had to clear the plates our self's and spend the night without water.

Shillong had been a wonderful place for travelers. But I had a not so good experience with the Hotel Orchid in Shillong. In particular I was coming from Orchid Resort in RI BHOI (Lake Umium) which was fascinating. Though location was not so good and the service was even poor. The rooms were dark and damp. They looked very gloomy and the whole ambience was spooky. We took the bottom most floor but presume the top floor will be little better. The rooms were costly as the service. But it was not worthy enough. You may get a far better accommodation with half of the price. Hotels like baba in the city center were really good and costs half much. The service was also tremendous.
