Water heater working nicely. Tea maker available in the room with tea bag, milk and sugar, making start of the day excellent. But food is too costly, better to avail... More

The location of the hotel is on a tad narrow road, then again in shillong that is to be expected I guess. we stayed there in October 2013. The rooms are decent and not overly spacious. The bathroom could do with a bit of renovation. The inhouse restaurant is also good. The front desk personnel are also helpful and ready... More

The ambience and landscaping is pretty. Staff is very hospitable. Food needs to be of better quality. But if one wants to stay away from the hustle bustle of police bazar and in a calm and peaceful place this is decent. Although Cafe Shillong is the best but this place too is very decent, very quiet and makes for a... More

Nice & clean place. Ambient. Conveniently located. Parking is a little tricky. Near Lady Hydra Park. Scenic surroundings. The breakfast spread is good, & meals are provided on request. Cozy & clean rooms. Nice decor.

After reading good review in Trip Advisor, we selected Highwinds Guest House for our 3 days stay in Shillong in Dec 2013. We did not have a good experience. We were allotted two rooms. Room no. 515 and 517. I had read in Trip Advisor that Room no. 517 had problem with geyser. Before I left for my North East... More

Though not a hotel, but a guest house, attached to Dr Sethis' nursing home. I have visited almost all hotels of Shillong, when I came across dr Sethis guest house. Its nice place to stay. The rooms are clean and far - far more hygienic than the general hotels. Morning you can have a walk in the Lady Hydra Park.... More

Highwinds is a fantastic guest house, bang in the middle of Shillong city. Yet, since it's inside a lane, you are spared of all the incessant honking and traffic noises of the Shillong market area. Tips: 1. Take a room on the top floor, max privacy and better rooms. Great view from the corner rooms 2. If you're with a... More

Welcoming and friendly, with great food and family atmosphere. Rooms are comfortable with clean bedding every day, although I did have dirty sheets on arrival which they did change. As mentioned elsewhere, boiler for shower was broken and leaking so there was no hot water, shower curtain was dirty and the bathroom best described as basic but the rest of... More
