Value for money


The hotel is appropriately located and I did not face any difficulties in finding it. The surroundings both in interior and exterior were good. The service given by the staff was good. The room allotted was good with all the essential amenities in functioning condition. There was no postponement during sign in and sign out process. The hotel was worth for the money.

Comfortable stay & home away from home feeling


I visited Meghalaya in the month of September 2015 and this was my first solo trip. I had already researched about the places I wanted to see in Meghalaya. Since I was traveling alone, I decided to book my hotel in advance through Youth Hostel Association of India (being a member). The only option available was White Orchid Guest House situated in Upper Lachumiere. It is situated right in between Don Bosco Square and the main market in Shillong. The front office is average and not that welcoming with limited number of staff. But the rooms are spacious and clean. The staff were helpful and courteous. It also has a pleasant view of the city below and even better from the terrace. I spent hours just sitting and gazing at the city engulfed in clouds and the hills that surrounded as a fort wall. It's a residential location and less noisy than the hotels in Shillong market. I prefered to take my breakfast in the guest house (Omellete and aloo parantha is awesome) then went out for sightseeing. Since most of the sightseeing was covered in a day, my evenings were free which I utilised to take long walks towards Don Bosco square and savour on authentic North Eastern delights. Overall, a comfortable stay.

The stay in the hotel is average


When I entered the hotel I thought that it would be very good according to the name but it is not so good. The rooms need to be more larger, toilets need some enlargement but they are very clean. Location is good, food is average and there is no security in hotel and rooms are not so clean.

Overall it was a nice experience


I went to Shillong on a puja vacation with my family on October 2014. I wanted to live in a peaceful atmosphere with relatively average budget. White Orchid Guest House do satisfy those criteria The rooms were definitely big (about 220 sq ft) and were pretty clean. Hotel staff were courteous. The view from the room was equally mesmerizing. The problem is with the food and transportation. In the hotel, dinner & lunch was prepared on order basis. So for proper delivery of food at proper time, one has to order beforehand, around 3-3. 5 hours, generally around 4:30 PM, which was quite ridiculous. As we did not knew this initially, we did had a problem during our first day night. So we had to eat out Now, the market places, restaurants, tourist spots - all were far from the hotel. We had to shell out about 150 bucks by hiring taxi every time we went to other places. Whether it's the food from the hotel or outside, it was very delicious We stayed for 7 days. Overall it was a nice experience P. S- Buy the luxury rooms if you are going with your family or in a group. They are the best.

Budget accommodation with fresh & tasty food


The hotel provides budget accommodation (around 1000 for double room with attached bath). The rooms are Bath attached with hot water supply. Room heater is also provided, but has little effect. The food is fresh and tasty, but is a bit pricey. So you might look for other restaurants as well The place is well situated, slightly away from the city to be clear off the noises, but close enough for easy access to transport. The owner has good knowledge of the place and would help guest fixing itinerary.

Location of the guest house was not good. I booked room of the guest house was online. I did not face any problem during check in and check out. Staff service and guest house services were acceptable. Guest house room was spacious and well furnished. I did not take food there. Beautiful view was visible from the room. I went there with my family in October month.

An average stay but service & food was poor


It was my relaxation trip with my family but my stay was not so comfortable at this hotel. The hotel was conveniently located to travel and the appearance of the hotel was really good. The staff at this hotel were very co-operative, friendly in behaviour and professional in service. There was a delay during room allotment but the room was spacious and maintained clean. The food provided at the hotel were not good. The hotel was worth for the money. I am not satisfied with the services and the foods.
