Homely atmosphere residential area.

6.1/7
Posted 28 Sep

Our stay at this guest house was extremely pleasant. The homely atmosphere, friendly staff and the clean rooms made the trip very pleasant. Located in a residential area, the guest house is far from the bustle of the city making it an ideal retreat for relaxation.

Average Stay

remote location, far away from police bazar, rooms are not that much maintained, TV connection was poor, food is also very expensive and taste wise poor, won't prefer for family, it is basically a guest wise kind, not a professional hotel. Reception was friendly and the city of Shillong is always very much good.

Peaceful Stay

5.3/7
Posted 11 Jul

On my family holiday trip I went to the Shillong in the month of April 2017. I booked my stay through online via Oyo.com. The hotel is located in the calm and silent place. The market was away from the hotel. That was outside of the city. The interior and exterior were awesome. The reception staff behaved ell and provided room immediately. Whatever we ordered that was provided on time. I booked Ac room. That was clean and neatly arranged. I ordered Non-veg food. More options were not available but good food. The travelers can have good food at the hotel. I went to the hotel by rented car. The parking pace was available. The kid play area was available.

Fantastic experience

4.6/7
Posted 11 Jul

We traveled to Shillong in the month of March 2017. We booked this hotel over through a phone call. The destination was a small hill station. It was a holiday trip along with my family. The hotel ambiance was attractive with the maintenance and garden. The hotel was located away from the city and it was difficult to reach. We reached the hotel by own vehicle. There was a beautiful garden maintained in the entrance of the hotel. The room booked was well maintained and spacious. The bathroom was clean and hygienic. We enjoyed the view from the room. All the basic amenities were provided in the room. The service staffs of this hotel were cooperative and they were provided all requirements on time. The front desk was prompt and pleasant. They were helped to do check in and check out process. We had food from the hotel it was delicious and tasty. The complimentary breakfast was provided in the hotel. Other fun activities were not found in the hotel.

Stay was superb and food was relishing

6.3/7
Posted 28 Feb, 2015

We (myself, my wife son and his friend) were on a holiday to visit the unexplored territories of North East in Mizoram and Shillong with a short stay in Gauhati. Overall experience was excellent especially the stay at Highwinds in Shillong. The amenities within the room were simply elegant and class, the food served were really tasty and traditional exotic dishes of Shillong and it could make my nostalgic memories of my earlier visit and stay in North East during 1993 to 1997. The stay as were reaching tired after whole days' travel, we were getting sound sleep due to good quality bed and linen and ambiance and TV apart from elegant food what we got at really reasonable prize.The services offered by each and every staff was worth mentioning and even helped us plan the day's travel and fine tune our routes. Advice to future travellers to this area is you can make a memorable stay at Highwinds with really good quality food and good ambiance and caring staff. The location is also ideal within city but with enough privacy. Next time if we visit sure we shall go Highwinds only and try some more exotic food items which we could not relish that time due to paucity of time. We will also try to stay more time in the room also to explore the best quality service once again

Excellent hotel with beautiful lawn

6.4/7
Posted 19 Apr

I had been to this hotel in the month of January 2017 for business visit with my colleagues. The destination was excellent because it is an amazing place to visit. The location of the hotel was excellent since it was located conveniently. The appearance was excellent since it was a quite traditional. Front office at this hotel was excellent since the receptionist is very friendly and the manger was very supportive. It was a direct booking. The service given by the staff at this hotel was excellent since the staff were very prompt and courteous. Room allotted to me was very good as it was very spacious, good ventilation and well with the required amenities too. I had breakfast hence I would like to rate it as very good since the taste and quality was good. There was a beautiful cafe in the lawn and it was too good. There was Wi-Fi and travel desk facility too. I suggest this hotel to other travellers as this is the amazing and the manger was very friendly. The overall experience was good at this hotel.
