“Helpful and hospitable”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This is a great little place to stay, very cosy and very comfortable. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly, without being at all intrusive. I found them very accommodating of any requests made. The owner, Manu, takes great pride in his establishment, and it shows.

The room I stayed in was well-appointed, in excellent condition and very, very comfortable. The views from the window were also very nice and offered enough privacy. When I stayed there, there were no facilities for making international calls from the hotel, so those who need to do so should make other plans in advance.

For those who are adventurous in their dining habits, the food here is fairly standard fare and pleasant-tasting. I'm a vegetarian, but I heard several people compliment the roast pork and pork jadoh dishes that were part of the buffet dinner.

I highly recommend the Blueberry Inn as a place to stay for any visitors seeking to experience the warmth and hospitality of Shillong.

The rooms we stayed in were very new with nice decor. The staff was quite friendly and the food offered was very delicious. The service in the restaurant was a little slow (order at least one hour prior to your eating time) maybe due to the heavy rush or not being properly staffed in the kitchen. The hotel is conveniently located near Ward's lake and 10 min. From Police Bazaar.

We were placed at the suite on the first floor, very well furnished living and bed room. Serene view of nature was available from the wide windows of the living room. The beautiful Ward's lake is just at the corner, 4-5 mins walk from our stay. The staffs were very courteous and prompt. Property is small when compared to another old hotel around but stay here is worth the money!
Thanks to the management for making our stay memorable with their decision of alloting us the suite instantly.

Beatifully done up rooms with personalised service. Although an inn, the support staff is always alert and available, very polite and helpful. The dining facility is partially equipped but with a little planning, it's sufficient. The main course is brought in from a restaurant run by the owners because of which the food takes slightly longer than usual to be served but it is very well managed.

My friends and I stayed in this property for a leisure trip. We all loved the efficiency, knowledge, services and the impeccable courtesy of the employees. The rooms are state of art, and very well kept. We stayed in the executive suite on the 2nd floor, facing the posterior of the property. The rooms are well equipped. Look for Mr. Pradeep Jaiswal if you need any assistance as far as the city tours or food or transport is concerned! Worth the money!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the forested area behind are much better Executive rooms a re good for 3, the suites a...

This is one of the newer places in Shillong, right next to a larger older hotel, but Blueberry Inn more than holds its own. It is just above Ward's Lake...in fact you could really throw a stone down to it! Just right for morning and evening walks. Police Bazar is also very near. Yet it is very quiet and hill station-y, as well, with calmness all around.
The rooms are spacious,the beds comfortable, the views great. The service is warm and friendly, and also efficient...the best combination possible! The little front patio was beautiful with a riot of flowers.
Great value for money.

Stayed in the 1st week of May 13 (4 nights) in a double room with family. Rooms are great with an excellent view, Clean bathrooms and good service. They have a nice restaurant on the ground floor and food is quite good.

Location being just opposite to Ward's Lake you can have a beautiful walk and also close to the main centre Police Bazaar (PB) just 10 minutes by walk.

Staff is very responsive and made our stay very enjoyable.

Provide a electric kettle with Tea bags / coffee for early risers to have a cuppa and then explore the lake..

Would love to come back and stay next time around
