Absolutely loved my stay at the cottage which maintains its old world charm reminiscent of the old Shillong, at a time when most of the city is covered with ugly concrete buildings. The cozy rooms, with wooden floors and tasteful decor and views of the garden were a pleasure to be in, Comfortable beds, clean rooms and bathrooms and a... More

This places takes you to old English times as much of the decor is in those lines. All rooms are named after flowers and we picked up the first room after reception on the left side of corridor. It was a nice choice. Room was done beautifully yet simple. Clean linen, neat bathrooms and running hot water made it a... More

Dear Guests, Thank you all for your kind words of appreciation for Aerodene Cottage. In 2010 we decided to preserve our old home which now falls into the category of being a heritage building, as we did not have the heart to pull it down and build a large concrete structure. A way forward was to turn it into a... More

"Charming" is the best word to sum up our experience at Aerodene. We spent 2 nights here in Feb 2015 after a few tough days of hiking near Cherra. We were hoping for a comfy space to put our feet up and get some R&R before heading home and Aerodene was just what the doctor ordered. Overall, it wasn't any... More

Aerodene came with a recommendation & rave reviews on Tripadvisor. I was most disappointed, let me list the pros & cons. PROS : 1. The room was spotless & done up everyday to perfection. Beds made well, fresh water in the kettle, loo cleaned & fresh / dry towels. 2. Accomodation for drivers- at a very reasonable 300/- per day... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your candid feedback. I am always concerned when any guest meets with disappointment and at the outset would like to sincerely apologise for any inconvenience you faced. Usually either Rukma or myself are always present at Aerodene but this time due to certain circumstances it was not possible for a few days. Unfortunately the kitchen... More

We had such a pleasant stay in Aerodene in 2013 and returned in 2014 because of the exceptional personal service we received from Sharlene, Rukma and the very friendly staff. Our rooms were very neat, clean and comfortable. We were made to feel so welcome. We cannot fault it in anyway - even when we were out late nights we... More

It was my second experience for homestays and I have started liking this concept. We had booked for a room with two single beds and sit-out and when we spoke to Sherlyn, she upgraded our room with the same rent so it was all good for us. The room interiors are very soft and gives you homely feeling, very clean... More

We went to Shillong in December 2014 and were very fortunate to have had the opportunity of staying at this beautiful, homely Guest House, AERODENE COTTAGE. The owner, Sharlene, and the Manager'ess Rukma, were so welcoming and went 'well beyond the call of duty' to make sure we were made very comfortable, in every way, particularly with keeping us warm...
