The stand out for this hotel is the location. It is located around 45 min from Cherrapunjee, so be ready for that. Nothing commercial near this place. It is around 5 km from start of Double decker root bridge trek.
The hotel in itself is nice. Very warm and friendly staff. Mind you, no Wifi or TV even in the executive rooms (WiFi is there in the hotel lobby) which was a little surprising for me considering it is not really cheap hotel. I received only 2G network while staying in the hotel, so it may be a little annoying in case there is some emergency. They have this philosophy that they want their guests to indulge in quality family time. They lend you board games and books as well. Overall the hotel was very nice. Dinner and Breakfast was good.
They have musical program everyday where a local band plays. We did not attend the program but the band seemed nice. The staff is cheerful, greeting you with smile and ready to help you if you have any queries.
The view of Bangladesh plains is very nice. There was some construction going on, may be a few more rooms. They also arrange a bonfire if you want. It gets very peaceful in the evenings with beautiful surroundings and that is essentially why you would go to Cherrapunjee.
One more thing, standard rooms are way too noisy and open directly into hotel lobby where there is buffet and musical program. So, you may not get as much privacy as you would want. Upon reaching the hotel and seeing the case, I upgraded my room to executive (which was luckily available).
