I visited as a RBI guest during Nov'2016. The rooms are big enough, behavior and service of staffs is good. Very well maintained and clean premises. The quality of food is very good. The only con is that it is a bit far from the "Police Bazaar". Everything else is very good. Enjoyed a beautiful holiday here.

I was not happy with the commercialisation of Shillong Hotels and home stays in the past few years, and therefore was looking out for a different place to stay in Shillong this time, where i periodically go for work. I found details of White Orchid on Trip Advisor and after talking to Chetan the manager there, decided to stay there....

What a fantastic spot to stay in Shillong! After a wifi drought, we came across the White Orchid who were one of the only guest houses willing to put us up in Festival season and for a decent price. The real selling point here though, is the staff. The boys that work here are all extremely polite and courteous and...

We stayed at White Orchid for 5 nights. Our double room was clean with our own bathroom. There was no shower but a bucket to fill and use. The water was very hot. Chetan the manager could not help us enough, nothing was too difficult for him. The rest of the team were also very helpful. We end got to...

Great location in the city and a decent price. Although, I would have liked greater comfort. I faced two inconveniences: a) entrance to the room was through a Liliputian doorway and corridor through which I had to pass, with back considerably bent b) many rooms come with non-attached bathrooms, but this one took the cake: the bathroom was located on...
