Location is pretty good, nice views from most of the rooms. Big rooms with balcony, green lawns and a big restaurant. The room allotted to me was quite large but due to summer season some what uncomfortable during night due to no cross-ventilation. Also lizards and flies all across. This is a government property. Restaurant service is a bit slow....

It's probably the best resort in terms of location and view, locating just by the great Umaim Lake. Service quality is absolutely abysmal. They took almost an hr for checking in, food quality also needs improvement. Rooms are old, not properly kept ( the bathroom door was not getting locked, phone not working). Then there was perineal issues like credit...

The resort has a lovely location and the restaurant also has a lovely view. The breakfast was nice even though the service could have been better. One thing odd was that due to power failure we could not pay by credit card which is not acceptable.

Reaching there, we came to know that no such room is available due to ongoing renovation work and they could provide room in left wing separated from the main complex by about...

Excellent location with below average maintenance. The taps are not working, food is horrible. Nearly no room service but the view and location is excellent. If one loves nature - may visit this place with expectation in mind that he will get no service and may face horrible food.

The cottage was not very nice. The weird smell was everywhere . The bedsheets and couch was not very good. The flooring was very very old. The view of the lake was the only good thing there. So if u want to enjoy the lake just go there between 9am and 5 pm . Dont stay at the resort .

Dont expect much out of this sarkari ( government) place. Rooms looks dirty with worst flooring and old dampen walls. Only thing which can be enjoyed from here is the umium lake otherwise ignore the stay here. Just enjoy lake while traveling between Guwahati and Shillong and thats it. Boat rides are available only between 9am to 4:30 pm so...
