Pros - 1. Great property, I had taken a suit and it was the same room in which Rabindranath Tagore used to stay at one point of time :)....The place has a history and if you are looking for a boutique property to stay...look no further 2. Rooms 101 and 102 had a small lawn attached. 3. Great food ....

We stayed at a Superior Room & the ambience and set up was that of absolute royalty. The property is located atop a hill on Cleve Colony ( about 10 minutes from Police Bazar, the centre point at Shillong) and has an old world charm.

Major renovations needed here. Has great potential, but needs the right direction. The rooms are cold and dark. I had to request an additional lamp. Noise filters from adjacent rooms and surrounding area. The shower recess needs a major overhaul as the water drains under the toilet. Permanent dampness. On a more positive note staff attentive and keen to meet...

We spent only a night here, arriving late and leaving fairly early. We had a big room with a comfortable bed and a heater for the cool night. The bathroom was huge with a good shower but the water drained out onto the bathroom floor which seemed a bit strange. The food was excellent. This was one of the few...

In good humor, meaning of the word royal actually means 'a member of the royal family or having a status of a king or queen....so now how does this translate into what you will experience in case you choose to stay in the royal heritage Tripura castle??? NOTHING ROYAL about it....now that's interesting...when i say this, I don't mean to...

This property housed in the palace of the erstwhile raja of Tripura is divided into two - the main block and the annexe, each having a few rooms and a restaurant. We stayed in the Superior room and it was everything you'd expect from a quality luxury hotel. The room was very spacious and it was well appointed. Albeit large,...

Cosy and quaint, atop a hill, reached by a winding road. Look out for lovely old bungalows in interesting painted woodwork, as you near Tripura Castle, a heritage hotel. Enjoy the old world charm in the layout of the rooms and public areas. Great to catch up on reading, if time permits, or a drink at the bar and a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the comfortable ambience of Cleve Colony, Shillong, lies our homage to the world’s second-longest continuing royal line. With splendid views of snow-laden peaks, this landmark heritage hotel is located in the Annexe of the Summer Palace of the Royal Family of the Manikya Dynasty of Tripura. The main castle serves as the Shillong residence of the current scion of the Tripura Royal family P. B. K. Manikya Deb Burman. Careful re-designing has ensured the availability of spacious old world rooms decorated with local materials and traditional Castle furnishings while yet ensuring all modern amenities. Keeping our guests’ comforts and requirements in mind, Royal Heritage Tripura Castle offers ample car parking facilities within the grounds, and insightful and dedicated service to all guests. In addition, Manikya Hall, the 30-seat conference room, offers an excellent space for gatherings of any kind from wedding parties to corporate conferences. Also on the premises is Café Shillong Heritage, a must visit for one to further experience the gourmet culture and modern day vibe of Shillong. ... more   less
