Somewhat rustic, but in a beautiful setting. If you go to the grounds of the church next door, and if its not raining, what you see in front of you is a great wall of waterfalls, one after another about half a dozen, probably. Then of course, there's the thrill of seeing Bangladesh's plains laid out before you.
Roomwise, the new annexe is a better option, we got a spacious family room on the 1st floor. I found the older rooms around the central hall somewhat dingy and cramped. The hall is spacious, where you come to eat. The food is simple, not much fanfare. The staff are pleasant. Mr Dennis, the owner, will help you plan your stay in Cherrapunjee, provided you need him to. Friendly, without intruding. He arranged a very nice chap to take us around cherrapunjee for the day, who took us to all the spots. We weren't sure we could do the living root bridges, but Mr.Dennis's encouragement made it happen. Must say this...the people in Meghalaya are so very friendly. No hassles at all.
