I booked it through the owner of the accommodation, found out she was out of town still an amazing pre-booking communication. I was offered to pay after i come over to the city, was given direction how to reach the hotel. Guest relation starts even before the actual trip/stay and this was a classic example of how it should work.... More

The cottage at Aerodene is such a quaint place that you would want to come back to Shillong just to savour it time after time. It's classic old world charm, an extra special experience of staying in a truly well appointed upscale cottage. It's very cosy, very, very comfortable and if you get the rooms with an attached sit-out, nothing... More

The Aerodene is a charming Assam-style cottage renovated into a bed and breakfast. The wooden floors and charming English interiors - lacy curtains, a wall dedicated to portraits of all the dogs who've stayed at the Aerodene in the main living room, low armchairs, vases of daisies everywhere - create a nostalgic ambience. Pretty garden. The rooms are a tad... More

Aerodene cottage is a lovely 60 year old cottage, restored, but still retaining the coziness and old world charm. We were charmed by Aerodene, the moment we landed there. Since we landed very early in the morning, we had to wait an hour or two before the rooms were available. We were meanwhile put up in the yoga hall, while... More

Located at a very peaceful tranquil scenic location, Aerodene, as the name suggests very airy, classy and methodical. The staff is wonderful, the location even better. With beautiful private gardens, excellent rooms and great hospitality Aerodene is an ideal place for honeymoon couples

As tourism picks up in Meghalaya, there is a huge demand for homestays in heritage buildings like Aerodene Cottage.
