I have a special relationship with barog. it is a beautiful himalayan locale with spectacular ambience. pinewood is my preferred hotel in barog. It has decent rooms with a better than average restaurant. additionally the garden is well maintained and beautiful. The hotel is fairly close to the main road. highly recommended!

Money has been deducted from my account but I had no confirmation .I was little worried and thought to call HPTDC next day as it was already late. Soon a gentleman called me from HPTDC. He... More

Went with family & friends for a weekend stay at this hotel. Great location, ample parking space,well furnished rooms. Food preparation & service was excellent. Strong recommendation for a short stay away from the hustle & bustle of place like Shimla.

Room are spacious but not well maintained but very open space outside the room. And best part is one can visit Shimla, Kufri, Kausali, Renuka lake (largest... More

We undertook an 11hour trip which required us to break journey. Friends graciously helped us get a room, as the website showed rooms unavailable. The staff was superbly courteous and friendly. They went out of their way to make our stay pleasant - however the basic amenities were sadly lacking. THe taps dripped water even when turned to full force,... More

The way uphill from Kalka to Shimla can be tiring by road despite the gorgeous landscape. The Pinewood Hotel in Barog, exactly halfway in the journey, offers a most pleasant lunch and refreshing stopover. Scenically perched on Barog's layered mountainside, the hotel and restaurant overlook deep, green valleys. Plentiful menu choices in Indian, continental and Chinese cuisine bodes well for... More
