I visited Shillong in December with my wife. We had no plans for checking this hotel out since we thought it would be far away from the market place. However we did not get any booking in the hotels near police bazaar. Then we tried our luck in this hotel. The hotel compound is huge.... with lot of space for...

The place is quite good, the rooms are spacious and very clean, they offer amenities for toilet and the food in the restaurant is OK, nothing super elaborated but good. The service is very friendly. Breakfast limited but you cannot expect more.

But the reminiscences of our memorable stay @Pinewood Hotel in the heart of Shillong, just beside the famous Ward Lake pushed me to write this review. The Holiday though had been planned months in advance and coordinated with...

Staff is courteous and the wooden rooms also has a fireplace which radiates the old world charm. However the fireplace was not lit up and we had to make...

The rates here are quite reasonable and I found the staff very much friendly. There's beautiful lush greenery surrounding the place. Wards lake for those interesting in boat riding is within walking distance. Overall I had a lovely time throughout my stay at Pinewood.

The hotel pinewood is situated on a quiet road away from the small town traffic of Shillong. The spacious hotel has well-done rooms with heating and electric kettle. Surely, there is also old-world fireplace, which did not function, but coal was kept just for the charm :). The bed is comfortable and staff is always smiling, non-intrusive. The interiors are...

We really enjoyed our visit to Shillong and the Pinewood. We have been here twice. Yes, it is a bit dated , but has an old fashioned charm. The food was good , we found the staff friendly and interesting. Let's say, we didn't expect in room wi-fi , mini bar fridge etc.and on that front were not disappointed !...

Hotel Pinewood comprises a cluster of buildings on a hillock overlooking Ward’s Lake in the central part of Shillong. The main building is a heritage structure, perhaps a hundred years old, adorned with wood panelling, antique furniture and old photographs. There are a few rooms in the adjacent wing, probably of the same vintage. Most of the other rooms are...
