“charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2008

I was traveling with a group of colleagues through NE India in October 2008. We arrived at this hotel to have lunch and plan our escape from the Mi Casa Hotel where we had been booked in. We were very lucky as the Pine Woods hotel had the number of rooms we needed available for two nights. The rooms are very very large, most with their own sitting room, bedroom, renovated bathroom and walk in closet. The hotel is set in a quiet environment, away from the madness of town. The staff is friendly and food is okay. Best of all, they have wireless internet in the room. I would not stay anywhere else if I were returning here.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2007

Overpriced as accommodation, but what a magnificent experience.

If you want the glories of the Edwardian Raj, a grand setting and a fine coal fire, go for it ... helpful friendly servants, like scouts at an Oxford college, with excellent sense of humour (tell I'm a brit), front of house staff appropriately snooty combining the paradoxical qualities of reserve and friendliness, whilst providing an impeccable service.

Loved the place and would return despite much better value mid-range hotels in town.

  • Liked — The overall experience/ambience of fading gentility
  • Disliked — Not staying longer
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled with family
