“I had a pleasant stay and both Teresa & Benny helped us to plan the entire trip which turns out to be the best trek we had so far!!!! Best place to stay here in Shillong without a doubt. It's a 5 mins walk from there market where you get amazing food options. (Munchies cafe was our favorite & Dylan's cafe) Easily available cabs. Kudos to all the people here who are so warm and welcoming. You don't have to bargain with any of them actually because people here will tell you the exact price/ fare. At least we experienced this. Don't think twice about your stay!! Book this right away.”
Welcome to The Guest Room - a Homestay B & B located at Lumpyngad, Motinagar, Shillong. Lumpyngad-Motinagar is a locality that is in the heart of the town and yet nicely tucked away, and close to the beautiful Laitkor-Lumpyngad-Malki-Lumparing reserved forest Range. One of the very few localities that can still boast of the old Shillong charm. We host only one set of guests at a time.
“The Guest Room is located in one of the nicest and most picturesque neighbourhoods of Shillong. The place is very cute, and extremely neat and clean, and it opens up into the loveliest garden. The hosts are extremely hospitable and are a treasure trove of information. They will tell you things that you will not find on any travel website or book. Their tips and notes took us to the most beautiful nooks and corners of the state, and we couldn't be more thankful for that. If you want to see the real Meghalaya, the Guest Room is where you should be.”
The cottage has an all natural aura to it, it’s situated in the midst of pine trees and the sound of the light breeze going through the trees is always a constant, an added factor that contributes to the all natural vibe is the mild sound of the cicadas chirping in the crisp air, it’s the perfect peaceful getaway to put your mind & soul at peace. Ideal for guests who wish to stay away from the hustle & bustle of town to experience ultimate privacy, peace and quiet, experience the real Shillong amongst true nature.
“Daia is the best host you can ever wish for! She made our stay in India way better than we ever expected. It was our first time in India and so we were quite daunted, but Daia was kind and thoughtful and helped us with everything we needed to make our holiday more enjoyable. Her cottage is cute, peaceful and private and has everything you will need for a stay in Shillong. Yes it is 30 minutes from busy and bustling Police Bazaar, but saying that, it is not a place you want to go everyday - for us it was a very chaotic place that we did not want to visit it often. The cottage is close to many other lovely places in Shillong that many tourists don't get to see, so for us it was lovely exploring the surrounding local spots. It is much better to have a scooter while you are here so that you can get around and Daia assisted us with hiring one. Taxis can be difficult to find near the cottage although Daia did assist us in getting a taxi when we needed one.”
