We boarded the Kanchanjanga Exp from Sealdah. The major challenge is the long time taken by it.
The train arrived at its destination 15 minutes earlier than the scheduled time.
Food and rest of the facilities were okay so as the AC. But there were lot of insects inside the coach.

I always prefer indigo airlines primarily as it is good and also cheap relative to others. Till now my experience with the airlines is good and comfortable. This time my wife has travelled first time with me so this journey is more awesome than previously. We have picked the first flight in the morning around 7am in the morning so that I can utilised my day effectively. Flight internal ambience was good, so the behaviour of the satff.

My experience with the hotel was not good, not because of bad rooms or service but because of misunderstanding and not a humble behaviour by the hotel owner and the staff.
There was a confusion from my side and the staff side related to the booking of my room which I have booked through...more »

I took my family to visit Shillong. We travelled many places by normal passenger flights but this time we used an ATR-42 small plane (external propeller type). We had thrilling experience in the flight. The air line maintained exact departure and arrival times in to-fro journey. They served nice drinks and lunch/snacks at free of cost during journey. At Shillong, airline staff was available to help each passenger so that he can reach his destination by managing suitable transports (cars) at reasonable charge.

This is the first time my parents were travelling in flight and Indigo satisfied us as always by their service and timely arrival in Guwahati. Flight was very good and my parents enjoyed a lot. From Guwahati, we hired a car to Shillong. For a ride to Shilling and visiting it's local sightseeings, we hired a sumo. It costed us 3000/- which is a good rate.

We stayed for only 1 night in this hotel but what I felt is we should have stayed there for 1 or 2 days more because of the location. It lies almost in the boundary of Wards Lake, a beautiful lake in Shillong, where number of visitors come everyday. Staff were very good and courteous.

I took an Air India flight to and fro Kolkata to Shillong. The flight was the smallest flight I have ever seen with a capacity of 50 passengers. The Airport at Shillong is a cute little airport, and while landing you feel like you are landing on a green field. The airport has basic amenities and even the air conditioners are not cooling enough.

Visited this hotel at Shillong in the 1st week of Oct 2015 for leisure holiday with wife. The room amenities were standard though there was nothing great. The staff were well behaved and always smiling and were able to handle efficiently. One thing is noteworthy, that major rooms are non air...more »
