Our group of 7 visited the place on 28th April and had worst ever welcome by any hotel. The cottages do not a drivable route from main road which is almost. 5-1 KM. Unless you are in a big SUV do not even try getting inside. The so called manager (Mr. Bhardwaj) was rude to the core. When we asked why there are no roads to reach the resort, his answer was "that's how it has been and we can't help it. You can complain to who ever you want to". At 8 PM we really did not have choice to search for another resort and moreover it was full ADVANCE PAYMENT so no question of refund also Then comes the dinner. We asked the manager if they can serve the dinner, for that answer was " Yes, but do not expect any choices, you have to eat whatever we prepare". For a moment I thought I was in some free dharamshaala where I as a guest has to listen to whatever the owner says Anyways below are the Good and Bad about the Resort . . Good. 1. Rooms are clean looking and nicely done. Good for bigger groups. However I could sense there are hardly any guest in this resort as rooms had dust and cob webs everywhere. 2. Staff members were cooperative to an extent. 3. On request we were served with dinner (Rice, Dale and Chicken Curry); this was tasty enjoyable. 4. Location is beautiful and resort is amazing for big groups Bad. No roads or route to reach to resort from main road. Driving is very difficult and can damage your vehicle you have to walk for almost half a Km with your luggage to reach the cottages you are lucky if power doesn't go in night as they have generator but it start only from 8AM to 10PM. In case you want to charge your phone for next day outing, carry a power bank Manager - Horrible, Rude, No courtesies, 0% hotelier ethics. Rest you can understand. 5. Advance payment for booking the hotel. This leaves you with no option to change your decision once you are in the resort. 6 Service charge of 10-15% on F&B services as mandatory. 7 Breakfast not included in tariff. 8 No Hot water even at 13 degree Celsius. 9 They have cute dogs but they wont let you eat when in restaurant and they roam around freely, So in case if you are not used to pet dogs then this place is not for you. 10 Room Service is at additional cost of 15%.
I've been here three times and have not been disappointed. If you are looking for luxury, stay away. But if you want peace, and want to chill out amongst hills, a valley with a stream flowing by, then this is your place. The people here are very helpful and I didn't face any issue as such with the service. The rates are moderate, but the dormitory is very cheap. (But you won't regret taking the cottages). They easily arrange vehicles for sightseeing as well as droppings(which are separately chargeable of course) Bonus-on weekends you get a band playing live in the house Happy Travelling!
Ill behaved caretaker. Overcharged place. Non responsive staff. Poorly maintained and managed place. Please avoid. Even after advance payment of roomrent, the manager refused to acknowledge our reservation. After much fighting we got a poorly maintained room with no room heaters or TV or room kettles although the charged was 4000 per night. It was an awful experience during this holiday.
I booked 2 rooms for total 6 people and had also deposited the advance payment. After the payment, I called the manager to confirm, wherein he sent me a confirmation mail But on the day of Check-in, I had to move 2 times between their 2 properties to actually find my room and finally, I am denied my room. The response they give is that, the rooms are already full and we can give you room for only 4 people and not 6. This kind of irresponsibility clearly shows the standards of customer satisfaction that this hotel possesses. On calling the manager and the caretaker, the response I get is that we do not have any other rooms. You have to adjust in that. I was terrified because I had already made advance payment and also, it was already 2 hours that I was struggling to find my room Finally, after the unnecessary troubles and a lot of conversations, I was given a room at some other property than booked. I do not understand if other rooms were already empty, then why I was asked to wait for 2 hours in the cold and waste the time struggling between conversations I think they rather reserve room for ghosts and ignore people who pay in advance In short, the hotel does not believe in advance payments and even after getting confirmation through mail, you will be harassed a lot. They certainly need to develop professionalism in hotel management.

The resort is big and open place with nice amenities. It has tracking fields available nearby. You can track nearby place just staying over there. It is quite an open space where you will feel so open and out of this world feel. It is not like the standard typical hotels but a nice open resort. The place is close to the Cherrapunjee and very near to sightseeing places and living root bridges. Even place is not far from caving adventures As mentioned, the property is not like typical hotels so it doesn't offer the typical hotel environment and also not offer the hotel facilities like the same. I recommend to all the travellers that if they are visiting Sohra(Cherrapunjee) then this is great place to stay and also, it is one among the attraction for the people to visit there. Also, the rates are very much reasonable comparing to other places of that big status The beauty of the place is whichever room you take you will feel the same goodness in all. Still my recommendation is a room far from the center place where the common room is. That will make you better feel about the place. What you missing at the place is a city life or clubbing if you feel like. Places also miss the swimming pool and if you think you need one then this may not be right place for you there Overall, this is wonderful place to stay and I loved my a week's stay at the place. I am sure traveller would love the place.
Nice place for vacation. This hotel cum guest house is a perfect place to stay in Shillong, the interiors and maintenance is quite unmatched from other hotels in the city. The place is situated just 3-4 minutes drive from main bazaar and this makes a more perfect stay destination. Mr. Ashok is perfect manager managing your all needs throughout your stay. Cleanliness is the speciality of this hotel which we all demand in our stays. It also has a Pear Tree near the balcony giving a perfect scenic area.
