Hi, Barog is a small town on the Kalka - Shimla rail route. It's a part of Solan district in Himachal. When I chose to drive down to this place for a weekend, I could find a few hotels, but as I love staying at HPTDC hotels, I chose Pinewood Barog. Its a spacious property and well maintained. The view... More

The review is pertaining to service matter not the hotel. If you are really hungry and find the restaurant more than half occupied in capacity, Do not prefer as they donot have appropriate staff to cater you. Even the simple running order of the food takes more than one hour to prepare and cater. I had to call the waiter... More

The main attraction for this hotel is location. This is close to Chail, Shimla, Solan. The view is not so great due to the trees around the property, not at least from the room I got (110?). They can improve a little bit on cleanliness of the carpet and the bathroom. Food in the restaurant is not the best but... More

Nice property with not so great views because of lack of altitude and vegetation around.........if you're particular about views, choose Barog Heights that's right above Pinewood, perched on the mountain top. Bang on the main road can be a bit of disturbance expecially if you're looking for a 'quiet place' to spend time. One thing that deserves full marks is... More

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
