“Great!!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2012 via mobile

This is undoubtedly the best hotel in Shimoga. But don't choose the hotel for this reason. This hotel has proven to me that even small town folks can provide world class service, at par with any 5 start hotel in metros in India.

The hotel itself is very good with 2 restaurants and a bar, big lobby, central location in the market. The only thing missing is a pool.

The staff of this hotel earns this hotel it's stripes. They are warm, welcoming, adjusting and very very polite. The reception, room service, restaurant staff, house keeping and even the external taxi service person left me speechless with their dedication and single minded focus on customer focus.

The staff provided everything I asked for. They even packed me a huge breakfast at 5 a.m. as I had a train to catch, that too complementary. The taxi provider would not allow me to take an auto rikshaw to the station and provided his taxi at 5.30 a.m. The wifi was complementary with good connectivity, the room was very well lighted and very spacious.

The breakfast was good and the room service meals were also good, although a bit spicy. They provided Indian, Chinese and Continental dishes, which was a surprise in a place like Shimoga.

In conclusion, choose this hotel not because of lack of other options but because of the sheer excellence and warmth of the staff.

I have visited Shimoga as part of my official trip and stayed in Royal Orchid. The hotel looks so different amidst a series of small town shops in the center of the town. It is very good for business trips as it is the only one business hotel in the vicinity. Very helpful staff but beware of not working technologies such as internet (carry your own data cards) and be very clear about the instructions to staff (about when you want your ironed cloths etc).

Royal Orchid Central Shimoga offers very good value for money. To start with, the parking facilities are very good!
We stayed in interconnecting rooms, both of which were well appointed and spacious. In fact, the rooms are much larger than those at other hotels in the same category. The beds and pillows merit a special mention. The decor both in the hotel and inside the rooms is tasteful and the ambience was one of peace and quiet. The front desk staff was quick and efficient, the hotel staff was alert and responsive and the chefs rose up to the occasion when we requested for health food.J The buffet breakfast was another plus - the menu was quite vast, the food tasty and the fruit carefully selected and well cut.
Another very important plus point is that the free Wi-fi facility.!
However, the bathrooms need immediate attention. One bathroom was small and a bit of a squeeze while the other, though roomy, had chipped flooring and loose fittings.In fact, both bathrooms looked as if they had been put together with old discards from other Royal Orchid Hotels.
Notwithstanding that, we had a very pleasant stay and will use it again. One only hopes that Royal Orchid maintains the standard.
