Tripura castle is good old heritage style property. However, located bit off-center means impromptu outings are difficult. The good part about the hotel was food. Two things I didnt like much - (i) rooms are average in style and comfort (ii) the heating is not commensurate with room size, leading to very cold nights!

This is a good old style hotel in a palace. The rooms are huge with modern facilities. Lunch and dinner were delicious. Breakfast was adequate but could have been more sumptuous. It was tough to charge our devices as there were inadequate power outlets. The water from the shower cubicle was draining into the main washroom leading to wetting of... More

If you want to get a taste for a spot of luxury in Shillong, then this is it. Owned by an aristocrat, it is a gentle winding 2 kms uphill walk from the main road next to Dylan Cafe, its pretty red gabled roofs and big rooms are enough to stay in. The ambience is old world though the food... More

The staff were polite and obliging but did not have the power to organise anything. The complimentary breakfast was very ordinary and not provided at 7.30 am inspite of pre ordering.... More

The castle belonged to a noble/aristocrat of Meghalaya (?) and efforts have been made to preserve the heritage. We stayed in the adjunct property, accessed via golf cart down from the main lodge. Positives: food in the upscale restaurant (not main lodge) was excellent if expensive. Service was equally impressive. Service generally was good. Negatives: Rooms were large and drafty... More
