Me with my wife decided to stay at Aesthetics Home Stay from 19th October, 2015 for 3 nights after Reading positive reviews in TripAdvisor. One of the reviewers informed me through personal message that the rate is Rs. 2000 for a double room. So I contacted with the lady owner via e-mail She informed me that "there are two categories of double rooms, Rs 2500/- and Rs 3000/-per night. Both are with same facilities only one is little bigger in size so that the couple can stay comfortably with a child. This rate will be implemented from 15th of September. We are sorry to say it is because of the high demand of the helpers. If you compare with other places it is still better from each point" We accepted the hike in rate and again wanted to know the charge of meal at dinner (as there is no provision of lunch in this home stay). The lady owner promptly replied me that "a 7 course vegetarian meal is for Rs 250/- per person. Non veg dishes are subject to type and size of the order. Whole baked chicken, meat and fish will be definitely more than normal plates, that also depending on the type of item. If you are a food lover you will be surely enjoying our type of food". We accepted his tariff When we reached Aesthetics Home Stay, we realized that the location of the guest house is far from the city centre. But it is situated within the locality of various Govt. Offices in the middle of weird location for which after sun set, the area becomes abandoned. For getting taxi, we had to go to Malki Point but never got any share taxi for Police market. In the evening when we had to come back to Aesthetics from Police market and it was not possible to walk this long distance in an unknown town, we tried hard to get a taxi to reach Lachaumiere. But it was tough to get a taxi due to rough refusal of the drivers. Every evening we fought an war to get a taxi to return to Aesthetics Home Stay. If a driver agreed at a cost of Rs. 150 to Rs. 120, but no one did not know the Home Stay. Each time we got off from the taxi at Malki Point and walked for 5 minutes in dark alley. As a result we did not enjoy the stay at this location Now come to the quality and amount of food. As there is no restaurant in the locality, we had to rely upon the Home Stay. In the first night, we sat on the chair in dining place and found a computer printed paper kept on the table. With utter surprise I noticed that the owner had declared that a 7 course vegetarian meal is for Rs 320/- per person (instead of her early promised tariff Rs. 250) But, what is this 7-course vegetarian meal It is simply deceiving !!! The owner arranged buffet for dinner, but the amount was so small that every guest was hesitating to take the food. The lady owner claimed herself an expert in cooking, but we had to bear with her unsuccessful experiment in lieu of money. She supplied half cup of soupA to each guest ( certainly it was one of 7 which is nothing but tasteless hot water. She claimed that there are useful herbs in this hot water invented by herself Yes, the room was clean. The geyser worked well. But after two days, we gave the key to the staff for cleaning the room. But returning in the evening we found the room was not cleaned yet. The dustbin was full The lady owner increased the room tariff in the pretext of high demand of the helpers but there was only one helper named Nazrul. This boy was so busy that it was not possible for him alone to look at every object. He bakes loaf, prepares food, serves and also gives service to guests. I felt pity for this poor person I do not need to mention pros But the cons are. 1) Distant location from the main city market 2) Situated within the locality of Govt. Offices 3) None of the taxi drivers knew the Home Stay 4) The price of the food is exorbitant in comparison with the quality 5) The portion of food is small 6) 7-course vegetarian meal is deceiving 7) We never enjoyed the food here Room Tip: Avoid this place.
Checked-in for a two day stay. First room offered was filthy worn out and stank of cigarette smoke. I complained and was moved to a luxury room. Ha jokes on me. This room may have been luxurious in 1955 but now tired. Upholstery on seating had nasty stains over the seats, the varnish on furniture was hanging on for dear life where it was not chipped. The view was facing what can only been described as a factory unit in need of a new roof. The bathroom was okay. Breakfast was in-adequate and not up to European standards. The mini-bar fridge was filthy and empty. Plaster under window sill was falling out etc. I took many photos but cannot be bothered to complain as this hotel was beyond help. Next morning I decided to check-out but lady on duty, very politely informed me, I could not have a refund for the day, I had lost. Lastly the hotel was way out of town on an Industrial estate. Seriously avoid and definitely not worth, half the money charged.
Unforgettable feeling, sightseeing & experience of stay at Shillong at affordable rates. Really I am surprised by the service quality. I suggest everyone, natural beauty lovers to stay in Aesthetics Guest House to enjoy the quality food, affordable high-end stay & great room decoration and facilities.
The hotel is located in the heart of the city. The lawns are spectecular. The rooms are fairly hygienic and spacious. The bathroom was also neat and clean. The food is however not that good. the room service was very good. However there is a need for better involvement of activities.
Friends, it was an enthralling experience. I was out to Meghalaya with my group. I wasn't expecting much. But this hotel proved me wrong. The amount of services and luxury provided have been out of the world. It is a memory I will cherish for long for sure. My stay made me comfortable which in turn proved to be game changer.
