It is a beautiful, British raj cottage and has been preserved and modernised wonderfully. The interiors of the cottage are so romantically designed that it takes some time to get over the nostalgia (Agatha Christie lovers will understand!). Their food is great and the location is superb.. walking distance to some nice restaurants, etc.

Aerodene Cottage in Shillong is a restored 60 yrs old home with a typical Assam Type Structure. It is a quaint and cost homestay. The Rooms are spacious and well equipped. Although a little far from main city , it's a peaceful place which is well maintained.

My trip to Shillong was made because of this beautiful home stay. The area this property is located in is quiet and stunning. The rooms are delicately designed to give a vintage feel. The aura of this cottage is very homely. I would like to give Sharlene and Rukma a special mention for making our stay so wonderful and comfortable....

The rooms are dirty and floors are damaged. The front desk people of the cottage do not have any sense of hospitality. Not kids friendly. Toilets are dirty. A place to avoid for staying. The cottage is also located in a heavily congested area.

Aerodene The first thing that hits you as you enter is the peace, quiet and tranquil of this place. And then you also set your eyes on the beauty on the premise. A 1946 Jaguar! Oooh!

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....
