Went there twice, once in peak winter and later in summer. On both occasions, our stays were short..only for a couple of days. While i will go again there in summer, I will avoid staying there in winters.The heater system is bad. The service is guest house type. But the garden is very good. The restaurant is also contemporary and... More

This is a restaurant and bar that depends hugely on memories of its glory days, many decades in the past. The building could do with repairs, the whole thing is shabby. The dining room strives to have ambience, but only succeeds in looking ill maintained. The grounds are beautiful, though, and one can while away the time while waiting for... More

The hotel has an overall cool and calm ambience which is the best part. Food is good although the spead is limited (B/F). Service is good and staff courteous. Room sizes were quite small but all relevant facilities provided in the room.. The correct rating should be about 3.25 to 3.5 but I have given a higher rating for want... More

I had travelled here last year last year. Me , my husband and our 3 elderly parents. The hotel is designed in an anglo-indian style and gives an essence of the catholic culture in shillong. This place is away from the shillong market hence, we had to rely on a cab. The hotel staff are i must say really well... More

This property was originally built as residence for Commander in Chief of Assam. Very big and spacious rooms in chalet style with greenery all around. Gives you thorough exclusiveness. Has a multi cuisine restaurant and... More

I visited Shillong in December with my wife. We had no plans for checking this hotel out since we thought it would be far away from the market place. However we did not get any booking in the hotels near police bazaar. Then we tried our luck in this hotel. The hotel compound is huge.... with lot of space for... More

The place is quite good, the rooms are spacious and very clean, they offer amenities for toilet and the food in the restaurant is OK, nothing super elaborated but good. The service is very friendly. Breakfast limited but you cannot expect more.

But the reminiscences of our memorable stay @Pinewood Hotel in the heart of Shillong, just beside the famous Ward Lake pushed me to write this review. The Holiday though had been planned months in advance and coordinated with... More
