The hotel is very nice, actually one word excellent. I have not seen this type of hotel in my whole life. Hotel is situated between the two mountains and totally hill area. It seems like heaven. People from different countries were visit this place and enjoying. Staffs were nice and rooms were clean.
An ideal home away from home. The cottage is elegantly designed for family, friends and couples. The hosts, Sharlene and Rukma are the pillars for this cottage which has an interesting history since the colonial times The aesthetics of the cottage gives you the feel of classic British and other European country side home stays. The food is sumptuous with typical English breakfast to begin with. Regular meal is locally made home food ending in a good dessert Overall, I recommend this place for people who look to relax and enjoy travelling at comfort.
They location of the place is very nice. Hotel interiors are also very nice. The problem is with food and service. Rukma the manager always gives excuses for your demands. She always motivates you to go outside and not chill in the resort itself. No variety in breakfast.
Our trip to Shillong was planned as a break from routine. We wanted to relax looking at beautiful views of hills. That isn't possible from Aerodene Cottage which is in the city of Shillong. Apart from that the cottage itself is charming and the rooms are decorated with an old style sweetness that is comfortable. There are plenty of sitouts in the lush outdoors rife with orchids and other plants. The lane it is set on is a little off the main street preventing road side noises from disturbing us, but close enough to hop into a cab after a short walk We spent five days there and the first two days were in a room that was a little small for three people. I feel that we could have been guided to take a larger room. After we moved to the large room with peach curtains our mood improved hugely I was disappointed with the breakfast - the juice was from an indeterminate fruit and frighteningly acidic. As a health conscious person and because the cottages look so wholesome I kind of expected an awareness to serve brown bread, fresh fruit and good filter coffee which would have improved the experience hugely The bathrooms were lovely and clean and there was plenty of hot water. Rukma Sen was helpful in suggesting places to eat in Shillong. The staff too directed us to the nearest wine shop to buy a bottle of wine for our first evening there. It wasn't very far and nor was the ATM.
If you want to spend a romantic, serene break then this is the place to stay. It is slightly away from the city with lush green flora and fauna. This place is maintained by two lady friends and lovely place to stay. Rooms are elegantly furnished in french style and lovely. Food is just amazing. If you want to be with nature and your partner then this is the place to stay.
This resort is just truly amazing. First of all, it is located at a very nice place from where views are truly amazing. It's own looks are also mind blowing. It gives a nice service to their customers. The room was also very spacious and luxurious. They give nice food to their customers.
In one word I can only say "Incredible". Strongly suggested to enjoy the Natural beauty of Shillong with stay in Aerodene Cottage. Enjoy the excellence of staffing, quality & interior decoration of Aerodene with its great taste of Meghalayan Food & others. Just go tension free & enjoy the atmosphere of Meghalaya.
The hotel is conveniently located. The appearance was excellent. Staff are very helpful accommodation is hygienic. No delay in check-in and check-out. The rooms were spacious and very maintained but no view. There were indoor games but no swimming pool. We arranged sightseeing on our own and had food outside which was good. It was a relaxation holiday. It was value for money. My suggestion is that they could have arranged extra rooms.
Shillong is fabulous. When I traveled Shillong then I stayed in this hotel. Everything is nice in this hotel. Hotel is wonderful and everything here was just like home to me. Hospitality is very nice. Home made food. Great delicacies in veg and non veg. Perfect! Rooms are well managed, neat and clean, but somewhat small but manageable. All basic amenities are available like room heater, complimentary electric tea maker, and washroom was very clean. Services are fully satisfactory. Hotel is located around 20 mins distance from Police Bazar by cab. Location is excellent. Look wise it is very beautiful. Reception and front office was fabulous. Shillong place is mind blowing for travel. This hotel is fully recommendable for tourists.
The North-East was always on my wishlist and I finally was able to make my dream come true with my Meghalaya holiday. I wish I had planned it better and could spend more time in Shillong itself. But my itinerary quite hectic; trying to pack in as many sights as I could. I definitely plan to come back again and explore Shillong in a more leisurely way . . Aerodene Cottage was everything I had read up about, and highly recommended by my friend. I had booked my stay only for a very brief time, as I was planning to be on the road exploring far off "Must-See" places. The warm hospitality and gracious service by Sharlene and her staff made me regret my shortsightedness. The cottage has a lovely old-world feel. The rooms were spacious, yet cosy; with every little detail taken care of. Electric heater pads for the night, Kettle with Tea-bags, Coffee sachets, Creamer, Sugar and even a little jar with biscuits. The bathroom had 2 each of Soaps and miniature bottles of Shampoo, Conditioner, Moisturiser and Shower-caps and Hot water at all times. The meals served up by her kitchen staff were also delicious and quite generous. The whole place was meticulously clean and, the surprise delights were Sharlene's Orchids in every veranda and her Kitchen garden. Sharlene also stocks Shillong's famous Orange -flower Honey for those who would like to take back some local produce. On the whole, a truly a 5 Star experience in a very affordable setting Sharlene also arranges for a taxi for local sightseeing and recommends places depending on what one wants to do. I also picked up Shillong's famous Jams and Juices from the Govt. Cannery on Sharlene's recommendation. She also gives really good tips on local cafe's to eat out at. Meghalaya is a destination by itself and deserves at least a week to do it justice. Some places like Cherra are quite a distance away from Shillong and it doesn't make sense to travel back and forth. Doing a side-trip and staying at a local resort there and exploring that region thoroughly makes more sense. But definitely do visit Meghalaya once in your lifetime. The sheer breathtaking beauty of the mountains and the clouds coming down to kiss its tops make one's heart fill to overflowing. Truly the Abode of the Clouds
