    Pretty property but that's about it. Unfortunately the service was very poor. The intercoms don't work, we ran out of water in the bathrooms, showers did not work, no bucket provided, tiny room heater that didn't do much to warm up a large room on a cold night, no tea bags, no keys provided to lock up your room, no...

    Most important, have warm clothing... The La-Chaumiere House belonged to the erstwhile British Colonel and hence you'll find lot of objects of historical importance here... The property, now in the hands of the Govt. is well kept... As it is located in the Upper Regions, you'll get to see some fantastic view of the city down and across...

    This guest house is located in Shillong city,where you can visit Shillong and local places. I recommend vegetarian food from this city coz non vegetarian food is pathetic .Taxi services are much cheap here,as per head they charge 10 rupees for city limits.

    Property exterior and rooms looked great when we first entered. They could have done a lot better to make our stay memorable and pleasant. - Food spread was customised and not all that great - Rooms were neat but bathrooms were mediocre - Heating systems were very bad and for a place like Shillong, it definitely has to be better....

    We were only in Meghalaya for 2 days but felt like we really experienced the area. The hotel is beautiful and the staff helpful and the restaurant food good. We happened to stay here for Diwali and the view from the back of the hotel looking out at all the fireworks in Shillong was an experience to remember.
