"There was few small issues in the room service."

4.8/7
Posted 20 Jul

I visited Shillong for a holiday with my family. The location of the hotel was a bit inside from the main road and at night it really gets dark, the overall look of the hotel was fine. The front office staff didn't receive us and we couldn't locate the front office we even called them but no one came. The overall service at the hotel was prompt and they were proactive and hospitable. The room was ordinary it was not spacious the window was not closing there was a lot of small issues. The food at the hotel was tasty the quality was good. There were no extra activities available at the hotel. I booked the hotel directly.

6.4/7
Posted 20 Jul

I went to Agra during the month of March 2016 and booked the rooms in the Highwinds, Guest House. It was my holiday trip with family. The destination Shillong was excellent to enjoy with family. The hotel location was good as it is nearest to the market place. The appearance of the hotel was good as it is very hygienic. I would rate the front desk staff as excellent as they are friendly and provided correct information. I booked this hotel via online. The services which was provided were excellent. The rooms at the hotel were excellent because of facilities and decoration. I would rate food as very good, here we can get more local varieties. There was no other activities available we would rate it as good.

6.0/7
Posted 29 Jun

I visited Shillong with my friends for a holiday. It was an excellent place the location of the hotel was very good. The appearance of the hotel was good it was a new building and it was far comfortable. The front office staff were very good, the service staff were also good. The room was neat and clean and well furnished. The food in the hotel was good and tasty. But they take a lot of time to serve the food. They did provide a free WiFi service in the hotel. I did the booking from Make My Trip. I will surely suggest this hotel to other travelers. I am planning to travel Sikkim for our next holiday. I don't mind a call for a package deal.

"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

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.
