Hotel Pinewood is one of Shillong's oldest hotels is four-star hilly retreat. The hotel is aptly named in keeping with Shillong's la'affaire with the pine trees which dot the city's landscape, earning the place its sobriquet, Scotland of the East. Spread over an area of 8 acres of lush green lawns, which gives the hotel the perfect picture of a hilly resort, Hotel Pinewood overlooks one of Shillong's most famous landmarks, the man-made water body, Ward's Lake. The driveway leading into the hotel is fringed with lush green lawns and bush pines, creating an aura of a by-gone era. The road snakes up the slope to end in front of a wooden porch painted white. It exudes warmth and takes you back to the rich days of pre-independence India, when the British made Shillong its summer retreat! It has a rich history and was one of the earlier structures of the British Raj. The hotel enjoys a proximity to the city's other famous landmark, the Governor's house called Raj Bhavan, with its imposing gates flanked by uniformed guards....overall..very warm cozy and romantic...best time to vist...through out the year....
