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

Nice rooms, nice views, good location, great staff and really excellent food, especially the egg curry, which is one of my favourites. "your home in Shillong" is what it said on their website and that was exactly how it felt... definately in my "top 3" hotels in India. Breakfast was really good as well, I especially liked the way that... More

This is a kind of guest house which has 18 neat and clean, proper ventilated rooms. Staff is very cordial and cheerful. Food was good both in taste and quality. Located very near to Police bazaar. Good value....5 star.
