The guest house itself well maintained & has a nice small lawn where one can enjoy warm morning sun. Cordial staffs. Complimentary breakfast was okay though limited variety. No formal restaurant was there, however dinner served on both night was good. Room heater... More

We stayed here two nights. On the first night we had dinner out and only had breakfast which was good so decided to stay there on the way back from Cherrapunji. On that day we had dinner here and it was really bad. The issue with the breakfast is that they are not geared up for a larger number of... More

A beautiful nice place, away from the busy city center. The entrance that leads you directly to the first floor is quite impressive. Most of the staff are friendly. For the rent they charge, the room can be better - in my case, water in the bathroom was smelly, wires were dangling from the geyser and cups were dirty. Sleep... More

It was my overnight stay in Highwinds; a last minute decision to stay back in Shillong – shortlisted after reading reviews in Tripadvisor and booked online. The surroundings are well maintained with lot of greenery and diverse flora. Gave me a unique feeling while getting into the reception located in the first floor. There is an Elevated covered wooden walkway... More

To start with, the hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of the Police Bazaar, so if you are in search for serenity, this is the place to be. The entrance makes you feel as if it you are home. The rooms are clean and has the basic amenities. The food is also good. We were a group of... More

We stayed for one night in their executive room. We chose this hotel based on all the good reviews it had got. What we saw was quite the opposite. We paid 2900/- for one night for two people with breakfast complimentary. Things that were sub-par 1. They do not provide bottled water, rather the water was kept in a glass... More
