Borail View Hotel
Reviewed 28 May 2012

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.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the higher floors, they are quieter and have better views of the Park across.

Silchar is a very small city and not much to see. This hotel is the best in town and reflects the Assamese style. For local standard, its the biggest hotel and has a big parking lot which other hotels in Silchar does not provide. The wall paints has come off as the renovation is on the cards. Hardly any reception specialities. Very normal ambience in Borail View Hotel. Rooms are very standard. From the room standard, it looks very old as the ACs are very old. Water heater facility is there as the place is little bit cool in november. But the batroom is old and towels are not so clean. For reasonable rate, this hotel is the ideal for 2/3 nights stay. Room service was is very good which made the stay not so bad. The other best thing is the Tata Sky connection and you can watch all channels that are offered in India. Better try the food outside.

Room Tip: Better to book in advance as this hotel is in very much demand.

Borail view is definitely a very good & comfortable hotel as far as the cost & location is concerned...The rooms are comfortable but not luxurious..but definitely you wont find anything better than this in silchar...Ambience is good and...As per standards the maintainance is not that great...Bar is not worth going with family...Rest is ok.

Good food particularly if one is not fond of heavy, spicy stuff. Good location makes it convenient to reach anywhere. Large room size but average furnishing. Rooms attached with a balcony though mosquitos prevented us availing that pleasure

Silchar as a city doesnt have anything much to offer to a visitor. This hotel is the best in town and reflects the town as it is. The hotel is big by local standards and it has a parking area in front which none of the other hotels have. The front office is nothing to speak off and in comparison to other hotels in other cities I would call it a little shabby. The hotel is undergoing renovations and you can see the peeling and dirty walls. The rooms are decent and has basic amenities. But the lights are really dim and it makes the rooms gloomy. The rooms have 15-20 years old AC. The bathroom has geyser and bath tub which was a surprise. Avoid the dirty towels. The best thing about this hotel is the room service which is prompt and the food which is good. Another good things is the tata sky connection which has all channels available in IndiaOverall exp was not bad for a two night stay and if I have to come back here again then this will be the hotel to stay.

I booked the hotel through one of my dealer during by official tour. The hotel is the best hotel in the town. Though it did not have facilities like other good hotel we found in metros or big towns. However , this hotel according to me is the best value hotel. Because the room rent is very cheap compare to their service. Rooms are considerably good. The food is really very good and the response of the hotel boy is above average. We can get rickshaw or auto in front of the hotel. So communication wise also very good. Overall, I 'll recommend visitor to stay in this hotel if somebody visits in this region.

This hotel was booked by my business partner there and found to be quite good in all respect except not-so-clean spacious rooms and toilets. Room services were enexpectedly fast and foods were reasonably good. Staffs were courteous and helpful. Parking space is quite big. Tariffs were very reasonable. Nothing more to write.
