This Hotel is a very old british time colonial hotel , where you still get the feel of the old British time, the reception area takes you down the memory lane, but the rooms are not up to date to modern times, but surely the rooms are spacious, with lot of green garden space.

If you like Grand Heritage Property, then this is the place for you. The place is huge, it has nice open spaces like you would expect in a hill station and is very centrally located. However, be careful to take a room in the newly renovated wing, for the rooms in the old wing are shoddy and not well maintained....

Pinewood is biggest & oldest hotel of Shillong. It is also best located hotel of Shillong. It was opened in 1898 and beautiful land scape. it has old charm , efficient service, good food & cordial staff. but they can do more , for that hotel should be privatised.

I am confused whether to appreciate the property if I think from the angle of a heritage hotel, established in 1898. Infact rather than calling it a heritage property, I would say Pinewood is still carrying the burden of it being a OLD hotel. Heritage and Old are not the same. I being a demanding consumer will still demand a...

It's an old govt hotel run by the tourism dept. Old British style huge cottage rooms with some modern amenities. It was really really fun to stay here. The property requires a bit of a makeover and maintenance and it would reach its prime again.

The landmark property is right next to Ward's Lake and is well recognized by everyone. The management has continued with the quaint appeal of the construction and have taken great pains to keep it in good shape. The rooms reflect the construction of the area but have modern amenities to make it a great place to stay. November to February...

A landmark property in Shillong - the Scotland of the East, with newly renovated rooms, plenty of banqueting and conference options in a super location with breathtaking views. One of the only places in North East India to serve continental dishes which are still done well. A great experience

Most travel apps were listing it very high. Found the place very nicely located with good interiors. Rooms are decently priced as compared to other options in the city and you get good value for money. Food is not that great, explore other options in city. Overall staff and service levels are quite high.

Good heritage hotel. Safe and service is very good. Well maintained rooms with major and required facilities. Restaurant foods are of mixture tastes; few tasted good and few were average. In a word good destination for relaxation.

We have stayed in Pinewood Hotel, Shillong for 4 nights in May 2016. We booked 2 double deluxe rooms for 3 adults and one kid which was actually more than what we needed. The rooms are very spacious. This is probably the oldest and best hotel in Shillong. The 19th century decor of the rooms are maintained along with the...
