We were driving from Shillong to Aizawl and had to make a night halt in Silchar . We had not made any prior booking and on arrival discovered that the North East Football Tournament was under way in Silchar, so all the hotels were fully booked. After trying a number of hotels we were finally able to get a room at the Borail View. The hotel building is quite imposing and each room has a balcony overlooking the PWD Park across the road.
The rooms are fair sized and well furnished, but are in a terrible state of disrepair. They urgently require a coat of paint as well as a change of carpets and linen which are now well worn.
All the rooms are air-conditioned and provided with TVs. The toilets are also well laid out with bath-tubs too.
There is adequate secure parking space in the front of the hotel.
The staff is friendly though not very efficient.
There is a large reception area with an adjoining dining hall.
The room tariff includes complimentary breakfast, but is much too high for this hotel in its present condition!! Perhaps this tariff was set earlier when the hotel was at its prime!! Now needs to be revised downward if they hope to attract custom.
