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.

If you like Grand Heritage Property, then this is the place for you. The place is huge, it has nice open spaces like you would expect in a hill station and is very centrally located. However, be careful to take a room in the newly renovated wing, for the rooms in the old wing are shoddy and not well maintained....

Pinewood is biggest & oldest hotel of Shillong. It is also best located hotel of Shillong. It was opened in 1898 and beautiful land scape. it has old charm , efficient service, good food & cordial staff. but they can do more , for that hotel should be privatised.

I am confused whether to appreciate the property if I think from the angle of a heritage hotel, established in 1898. Infact rather than calling it a heritage property, I would say Pinewood is still carrying the burden of it being a OLD hotel. Heritage and Old are not the same. I being a demanding consumer will still demand a...

It's an old govt hotel run by the tourism dept. Old British style huge cottage rooms with some modern amenities. It was really really fun to stay here. The property requires a bit of a makeover and maintenance and it would reach its prime again.

The landmark property is right next to Ward's Lake and is well recognized by everyone. The management has continued with the quaint appeal of the construction and have taken great pains to keep it in good shape. The rooms reflect the construction of the area but have modern amenities to make it a great place to stay. November to February...

A landmark property in Shillong - the Scotland of the East, with newly renovated rooms, plenty of banqueting and conference options in a super location with breathtaking views. One of the only places in North East India to serve continental dishes which are still done well. A great experience
