Pinewood is a very old style hotel. Looks like a government hotel set in the 80s. It is clean and all but it hasn't been renovated in a long time. I can't recommend staying at this hotel too much but the food is quite good. So, if you are in Shillong visit the hotel for some lunch and drinks and...

Pinewood hotel forms one of my earliest memories of childhood, along with Ward's lake, Lady Hydari Park, Botanical gardens and many more. The property is well maintained, be it the lawns or the rooms, the cottages are well appointed, with a wonderful spacious feeling. The service staff are courteous and attentive. Located in the heart of one of the most...

We stayed at this hotel for three night and I couldn't wait to get done with this stay after the 1st night. The state of the hotel is horrible as you can see in the pictures. While in a good location and while it looks nice on the outside, the looks are only skin deep. Musty smelling room, rotten wood,...

I have stayed in this Hotel a few times and find it extremely good. Reasons are simple. This must be the oldest Hotel in Shillong having been there since 1898. It is centrally located, next to Government offices, right in the central town. In the mornings one can go to Ward's Lake lake which is just opposite the hotel. Rooms...

I stayed in a room in the State Convention Centre for two days, while conducting a two day workshop. Breakfast was in the Pinewood Hotel, but the workshop and other meals were in the Convention...

That's the question you need to ask yourself. 1 traffic jams the entire day 2 extremely crowded central areas , can't walk 3 overrated tourist attractions in shillong ie shillong peak and elephant falls. The real attractions are nearer to cherapunjee which unfortunately requires...
