Our first trip out in 15 months as a family. As expected we were very worried about the Covid control at the hotel, especially as i am undergoing cancer treatment. This all vanished the second we got to the hotel. The manager was excellent and live enough to even show us the measures being taken to fully sanitise the rooms and hotel. Completely out of mind at ease. The restaurant even has disposable gloves to use while taking the food from the buffet. I wish bangaloren hotels were thinking like that. The restaurant itself is excellent. The food is out of the world whether Italian, Indian or Chinese. The credit must go to the chef Jamarul, who aside from his very sunny and smiling disposition, went out of his way to make anything - and made it all to perfection. The starters - Mexican, Indian, local were with coming all the way here for. The service is equally fantastic - Emima, Paolos and Impana make you feel so much at home and are super accommodating, and ALWAYS smiling, even through the masks. And to be noted they are all there all day. The whole team make it a pleasure to eat here. A special extra thanks to Emima for her lovely coffees and warm welcome when we arrived exhausted from Bangalore. I could continue the praising for everyone mentioned and others but i think you get the general idea. Great hotel, excellent polite management, fantastic food, brilliant service and a place to definitely come in ever in Shimoga

My experience with Royal Orchid had been amazing. After lock down visiting city shimoga was little challenging in terms of hygiene, safety and good place to stay overnight for which hotel has exceeded my expectations because of truly well maintained safety guidelines, trained staff and tasty food. I have enjoyed my stay & definitetly visit with family once the situation gets normal.

The Property location is good and the rooms are big with very good COVID precautions at all levels, but if you have a dust/mite or any form of air allergy then you need to take precautions as my allergy flared up, and could not sleep for even a second. They need to install room air purifiers as the windows are locked and they don't have any fresh air inlets near the rooms/corridor. It's a bit expensive as well for the facilities which they offer. The Room service is a bit slow and few of the fittings like TV level, drawers need attention. The toilet seat was moving and had to be manually adjusted before sitting. They need to work more to really get a feel of a 4-star hotel.

My fourth time here and my experiences were mixed. This time, I had a good stay. (I was skeptical since this was my first travel ever since the pandemic hit)
The staff was friendly. Room Service was quick most of the times.
The best part of the stay was dinner at Tiger Trail with Karaoke. The restaurant had arranged a singer to perform hindi retros and customers too had their share of stage glory. The staff especially Paulo (I hope I remember the name right) was very friendly and got us food prepared based on our specifications. Food too was good. (especially Biriyani and Rasmalai)
The rooms are however not sound insulated, so you can hear noises from outside and corridors all through the night. Rooms offer average space but little things are taken care. The property seems to have been renovated in the last 2 years.
One thing to note is that online booking sites mention the room to have king size beds. The deluxe rooms have only queen size beds. Go for the Suite if you need King size.

Our family of 7 visited Shimoga during 1st week of October. We had booked two deluxe rooms which was interconnected. We had a comfortable stay for 3 nights and the rooms were very well maintained. The complimentary breakfast was a major highlight... :) The staffs were courteous and well disciplined.
The hotel is at the heart of the city and is very near to a shopping mall. The Shivappa Nayak, Palace museum is at a walkable distance from here and is worth a visit to see ancient sculptures, inscriptions etc.. We also visited the Sacred Heart Cathedral which is on the main road and spent some time there. Most of the tourist attractions are little bit far from the city but it was a good experience. We also visited Sakrebyle Elephant Camp, Ikkeri Aghoreshvara temple, Jog falls, Lion and Tiger Safari park etc while we were there. The Kundadiri hills visit was really worth it for the adventurous uphill drive, the view, the Jain temple etc. It was raining and we could literally see lightning bolts very close. :)

Good service by the staff Ashish, santhosh, kiran. Cleanliness is one of the aspect being taken care by the staff. Breakfast is good but dinner we had less options. Room dining order taking person misses one or the other item which needs improvement. Overall it is good stay.

Had a sumptuous New Year dinner, while staying the hotel during this time. Mr. JEET and Mr. ANJANI showed a great deal of hospitality and offered us food like you would to a guest in your own home. We already had dinner before we came, so we only wanted a light snack, but they ensured we had a second dinner :)

I was planning a trip to the jog waterfalls, how far is it from the hotel
Shimoga, India
Dear Guest, Jog fall is two and half hour drive from here. The drive from hotel to Jog falls always add to the experience because of the scenic beauties you pass through. Usually, guest leaves for Jog fall after breakfast and they are back to the hotel for lunch.
