While i will go again there in summer, I will avoid staying there in winters.The heater system is bad. The service is guest house type. But the garden is very good. The restaurant is also contemporary and...

This is a restaurant and bar that depends hugely on memories of its glory days, many decades in the past. The building could do with repairs, the whole thing is shabby. The dining room strives to have ambience, but only succeeds in looking ill maintained. The grounds are beautiful, though, and one can while away the time while waiting for...

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.

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...
