All the rooms are tastefully and painstakingly decorated by the owner and extremely neat and clean. The staff were extremely courteous, making sure we were always comfortable. Was...

Visited shillong in October for the Weekender music festival. The festival was great and it was a rewarding experience. However in many ways it was our stay at Aerodene that was even more wonderful. I am a sucker for old, quaint cottages and Aerodene was just that. With a wonderful garden to soak up the sun in, beautifully furnished rooms...

I stayed in this property during Dec 2016 for New Years. It seemed that this place has only one thing- Good looks! There was no electricity from morning 9:30 everyday so we had to get up early and take a bath so that we can get hot water supply in morning. Moreover the reception just gave up and said that...

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.
