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

When I think of Pine Wood hotel, the first thing that comes to my mind is the food, simply awesome, no matter what you order. The ambiance of the dining hall adds to the experience; they’ve maintained the setting from the days of the raj; & this applies not only to the dining area but the entire place. Once you’r... More

Property was good. Facilities were excellent but people who are managing the show are spoiling every thing. Food taste was below average. Room Service was late. Billing process was incorrect. Front desk person was not only suborn but rude. They calculate tax on the room rent before considering the discount hence unnecessarily charging more from the guests.

Its a beautiful hotel situated right next to the lake. The rooms are huge and made in traditional style. The food is average and a big problem if you are veg. Preferably stay in the newly renovated rooms.
