This is a Heritage hotel with excellent food served. Even the service was great. Rates are reasonable and the staff very friendly and committed. Would love to come back again specially for dinner at the restaurant.

I have stayed in this Hotel a few times and find it extremely good. Reasons are simple. This must be the oldest Hotel in Shillong having been there since 1898. It is centrally located, next to Government offices, right in the central town. In the mornings one can go to Ward's Lake lake which is just opposite the hotel. Rooms...

The Pinewood Hotel is more than 100 years old. The "State Convention Centre" is a modern building and a part of the Pinewood Hotel complex. I stayed in a room in the State Convention Centre for two days, while conducting a two day workshop. Breakfast was in the Pinewood Hotel, but the workshop and other meals were in the Convention...

Clearly a nobrainer ! stay here, absolutely! But do you really want to stay in shillong? That's the question you need to ask yourself. 1 traffic jams the entire day 2 extremely crowded central areas , can't walk 3 overrated tourist attractions in shillong ie shillong peak and elephant falls. The real attractions are nearer to cherapunjee which unfortunately requires...

Pinewood hotel is arguably one of the best hotels in Shillong. Owned by the Meghalaya tourism corporation. More than 100 years old and has all the old world charm, though the rooms are renovated with most of the modern day comforts. Food is average. Service is good but slow. Location is central with the famous police bazaar within 10 minutes...

Nice vegetarian food with great taste anr wonderful starters. British colonial style rooms. We will be surprised to see that a state tourism department can manage so good with atleast decent standards on par with private hotels.

This hotel is good for family. It is simple but beautiful. Mainly attached with Meghalaya tourism or says related to government bound hotel. You can reserve rooms through their particular site of Meghalaya tourism or mtdc site in advance. This hotel is available within budget. The rooms are ok and maintained well. Well reachable. Staffs are well cooperative.

The rooms are huge and offer a wonderful old world experience in this quaint heritage hotel, one of the oldest in Shillong. It is spread over a huge area of land with very tastefully accomplished landscaping - a truly sprawling property located near the heart of the city. It is a very quiet and relaxed place with huge rooms with...

This Hotel is a very old british time colonial hotel , where you still get the feel of the old British time, the reception area takes you down the memory lane, but the rooms are not up to date to modern times, but surely the rooms are spacious, with lot of green garden space.
