The room rent covers rope way up down fare once daily. The rooms are big with a small attached dining area. Hot water is available along with room heater. The service... More

We stayed here during May’2015. This was the Governer General's bungalow that has been converted to a hotel. The place is away from the crowd, right on top of Nainital. We used to commute to the main city area with the help of the ropeway.One up & down commutation was complementary to the hotel stay. There are only 4 rooms,... More

We visited Nainital end of October 2015 and went for a lunch at Snow view top restaurant & bar. I was busy to feed my 1 year old baby and they took full advantage of the situation. They lifted my phone from the table. The place is under CCTV coverage, and when I asked for footage they could not show... More

Best location for nature lovers, situated in the top of Nainital. Total hill view can be seen just 5 min walking from the hotel. This hotel provides a trekking trip (4km) to China peak from where you can see total Himalayan range. The manager and staffs are really nice and their service is really good. Food is awesome...

This is the best place to stay if someone is interested in viewing the sunrise early in the morning. Sunrise takes place at 6.30AM and the sunrise viewing point is only a 3minutes walk from the hotel. No other hotel is situated around it. One needs to take a cable car from the base to reach this hotel. Hotel is... More
