Firsly, lemme tell you, this was not a hotel of choice, rather we picked in the unavailability of rooms in our preferred hotel. Location – Almost at the centre of Mall road overlooking the Naini Lake. Parking – Available but it is limited. Rooms – Smaller than the average budget hotel. USP – The Lake facing rooms with Glass windows.... More

We stayed here on 10th and 11th March. Coming from Corbett, where hotels are better, our expectations were a little out of the place. There are plenty of hotels on Mall road, which are rather cheap - great many below Rs.1000 per night too. We checked Siddharth and Shivraj which were bad. Krishna was good enough but we didn't fancy... More

I stayed in this hotel in month of jan 12 and chosed the room on the 1st floor with lake view. Room very small, very cold, room heater not working propely, serious problem with privacy in the room, expensive, average food but good room service. There are lots of better & cheap options available on mall road.

We stayed at this hotel on 14th August 2011 during our proposed 3 days trip to Nainital (Thanks for the massive traffic jam at Garhmukteshwar, we could not reach on 13th and preferred to stay at Haldwani over night) . We reached at about 10.30 am and checked in at Hotel Lakeside Inn (fortunately one lakeside view room was available).... More

We were here because we couldn't make early booking. The hotel is very compact & the rooms are without windows ( though few high end rooms are looking mall road ). The rooms quality is bad & so is the food. If you are going with a family or as a couple please avoid this place. However if you are... More

Locationwise, the hotel is good. The negative point is the cost especially when you get it booked it online through makemytrip or yatra.coms. Staff is good and cooperative but you need to followup twice for a request or service. Food is available but at a exorbitant price. Better not to order except tea and coffee. I rate this this hotel... More

The Lakeside Inn is located on the Mall, directly across from the lake. The views from the balconies are spectacular. However the rooms are small, and not well ventilated. Ours smelled of frying onions! The beds are clean though not too comfortable. Hot running water is available 24 hours a day, though it is very sparse. Because of the location... More
