This is a nice place for one day of family vacation. good outdoors, nice gardens and very well located. Food is good and staff as usual which is hallmark of hptdc , every staff member is warm and friendly. Not much to do beyond one day though good place to just cut off and submerge in books and nature.

In close proximity to Chandigarh, this can be a good retreat option if you don't want to travel a lot (30 kms before Shimla) and stay away from the crowd. Owned by HPTDC and hence a prime location. Construction and rooms are not that great considering the rentals but the awesome scenery is hard to tell.

Perched on the slopes above the Shimla Kalka road overlooking the vast valley is the hotel, maybe one of the most fascinating property of the HPTDC.It is a pity, it is overlooked by most of the travellers to this region. The breathtaking scenery viewed from the decks or the lawn is very hard to be described. One may spend an... More

First things first. The Pinewood is a HPTDC owned property. Earlier I have reviewed their property in Dharamshala. And the story is no different. A large spacious property with big rooms. I was in one of the two bridal suites; no suites for the groom!! In the name of maintenance, there was a thick layer of dust on the edges... More

The Pinewood at Barog is an excellent choice if you are looking for a no-boxes-to-be-checked holiday. It is bang on the main road on the way to Shimla but elevated enough to be away from the noise of the passing cars. The rooms are clean enough and the staff very helpful and friendly. The garden is very well-maintained and a... More

hOTEL - PINEWOOD BAROG is “the” hotel on highway (not bye-pass) from Parwanoo to Shimla/ Chail onwards. Barog, the name itself has a history. It is named after an English engineer who committed suicide as he was token-fined for not being able to connect to tunnel from both sides. However, the Himachali Local “Bhalku” who could do the same is... More

Very good hotel right on the highway. Amazing gardens, nice restaurant. Our room was on ground floor and its door opens in the garden, which was very nicely kept. Very spacious for kids to enjoy and play. Stunning views. Overall a must stay for all.
