If you are looking for luxury resort, its not the place but if you are looking for something away from noisy Nainital with having luxury of first look at Nanda Devi and Trishul peak then this is the place. Its very old British period Governor bungalow which have only 4 rooms. 3 rooms are interconnected and 1 rooms is separate.... 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...

The Hotel is located on the top of Nainital mountains... Very nice location. I was told that it used to be the Governors Residence during British times. Rooms are big and spacious with a dining area. The interiors are old and need a makeover. So does the Bathroom. Although they have geyser and hot water is not a problem. The... More

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

This is a property earlier used as Governor House and one can assume its royal remnants. Spacious suite with wooden floor, but not really equipped with latest amenities. We visited in June 2014, peak summer season. Quite calm and secluded place away from the hustle-bustle of Mall/lake. They offer complimentary two-way cable car ride for the family. Although location wise... More

We visited Nainital in July midst rains. Most of the hotels were still heavily booked. TRH Snowview offered a comfortable stay and it was worth its price. Food was good, Service prompt, room had warmer, extra quilts was neat and guest are provided free passes for the ropeway, above all we had a great view. The only slight problem is... More

I had booked a deluxe suit from their Barakhamba Road Office. I travelled there in the third week of December, and although it was an Off Season, they charged me 6000 rupees for 3 days. But when I went there and saw the room, I was utterly disappointed. The room was very cold, and the furniture looked very old, including... More
