3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is located right near the Wards Lake in Central Shillong. The buildings are old British style and the hotel compound is beautifully maintained. The rooms are old fashioned and somewhat comfortable too. The service is a tad bit slow but the staff is courteous. The food is ok but not that great. Otherwise a decent place to stay... More

I stayed in PineWood Hotel for two days of 16 & 17 Aug'2014. The hotel is very good and the location is quite and approachable. Famous Ward's lake is just a walking distance. You will get a different feeling along the cottages of the colonial era. Rooms are good and two rooms are contained in each cottage. Food is Great... More

Stayed here last year while on a family vacation. The Staff were very courteous & helpful. The location is lovely, lot of greenery around. Bungalows on the back side have lovely views. Only downside is it's not maintained properly... Ageing furniture's and houses. Food quality is Decent to Good. (You wouldn't have Bad Stomach). Lobby Area is Good. Huge area... More

Relatively old property with colonial style set up. Wooden floors and Victorian type of furniture. The hotel has definitely seen its best days and bring a part of government set up I believe no serious effort has been made to spruce it up. Otherwise the rooms are large and spacious without the claustrophobic feeling. The sprawling lawns with large old... More

I stayed in this hotel for a period of 3 weeks and I found this hotel excellent from business and leisure perspective. It was quite, spacious, heritage-like but far from city center with in-room bonfire . It was quite a feeling to lit the fire in the room in the night time and roam around in the jungle like neighborhood... More

We all need a good place to eat and rest. All are here, the only thing that is missing is quality. Being a government ran hotel for ages, nothing much will change. BUT, in a place like Shillong you can't find a better place. So enjoy every bit of it.

I was here with family couple of months ago. I loved the approach of the hotel. The place is located in front of Wards Lake, a man made lake. The rooms are ok considering it's an old place. The gardens and lawns are well maintained. Service is bit of a issue here. A lethargic approach makes them complacent. They have... More
