Reviewed March 10, 2014

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.

Room Tip: tay in the newly renovated rooms.

It is an old world charm they dont make such property again in these time. One can be poetic while here. wonder ful archticure with liberal use of wood and the place is also surrounded by huge trees.
Food is somthing worth trying . The prepration and the quantity is pretty good. The staff is pretty help ful and willing to look after the guest.
needs better maintenance of the place and some smell if it is addressed will make it place better. place one must visit and stay.

Room Tip: rooms facing the main entrance.

Nice hotel. Good service. Little costly but worth every penny.Near to Wards lake shillong. Enjoyed the ambience of good old bar. But little proper maintenance of the hotel will make the stay of future guest more enjoyable.

Cosy yet in need of some serious renovations, this hotel typifies the era of Hill Station architecture. However it has been neglected over a considerable period,- hence the rotting door frame timbers in my room. The service staff were most willing and the food great. The reception area has a special charm, and the bar a reminder of time gone-by. Book a fire-lighting and that makes the room comfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level are more accessible.

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....

Room Tip: take one of those family cottages....do bon fire...enjoy..
