We stayed at Orchid Lake Resort for two days, 23rd and 24th of Oct '16. We had a prior booking for a lake view double bedded deluxe room. 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 .

Location is good but the services are very poor, there was no answer from the kitchen and room service number, had to go in person to order. Plus I guess the meat in the Orchid Lake special fried rice was from the leftover as it smelling and not fit for consumption. The room was good except for the size of...

Though the location is awesome, but the property is in a really bad state. The rooms are pathetic and the amenities very basic.. The food quality is bad and menu options very limited.. Overall not a great place to be in .. Try other good options in Shillong!

The best part of this hotel is their location, with it location just next to the Umiam (Barapani) Lake. Rooms are very nice, esp if you are staying at the cottages. Hotel has a very good swimming pool and also has a pool for kids. About 45 mins away from the city, hotel location is very peaceful and quite. The...

Location wise it's unbeatable(except for the expensive resort on the opposite bank of the lake).But service could have been better. Room service is slow and the taste of Chinese food in the restaurant is horrible. The adjacent lakeside park entry should be free to the guests of this resort.
