It has been some time since we had been to Shillong for a Holiday in early October'14 amid a tough professional schedule. 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...

The oldest colonial hotel, steeped in history, is in the center of Shillong, less than 5 minutes walk from the Ward's Lake. The hotel is run by the Govt. of Meghalaya. 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...

It cheap but good. You enjoy it. Food is good. Rooms is good. staffs are seldom near. They know their worth. You try hard to find a place. So you try early. good walkway and lawn. They're not bothered to show you another masterpiece hotel just opposite in the same campus. We could not understand properly. Very near to the...

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...

Pinewood is a government owned hotel, one of the old properties in Shillong. So expect sprawling grounds, quaint rooms, but average service from its staff. If one goes with this expectation, then this is a good place to stay. There was wifi at the reception, though not at the rooms. Breakfast is basic. Carry your own towel. Found this to...

The room was large, but old and not so well maintained. When one stepped on parts of the floor, one side of the wall shook! The hotel gives wifi connectivity. Baked fish and dessert were good at dinner, but the breakfast buffet was disappointing. We had to leave early and were offered only bread, eggs and bananas. There is a...

One of the oldest hotels in the centre of Shillong, less than 5 minutes walk from the Ward's Lake, a popular destination. Staff is courteous and rooms are reasonably well. The furniture and bathroom fittings are outdated. A major Plus is the free wifi for the guests, who are given a password by the reception. Lobby is excellent with antic...
