The heritage part is actually the furniture, the photographs and residence of the Maharaja a few steps away.
But the hotel is very nicely laid out around a courtyard. Great ambiance. And very good service. The food is about average though.
I stayed in a very nice large room with steps leading to a small garden. The bed was supposedly the same bed that Rabindranath Tagore slept in when he visited the Maharaja in Shillong many years ago!!
The good thing is that it is a bit of a distance away from the city centre so its quiet and very green. Shillong has changed over the years. The town used to be a quiet town but its now very noisy, so I needed the quiet!!
The staff is very helpful.
