We stayed here from 16th to 19th Feb, 2014 as a part of our honeymoon trip. The most wonderful thing happened when we were about to reach Nainital from Kausani on the 16th – we were greeted with Snowfall. And by the time we reached the hotel, it got heavier. We quickly checked-in and got our luggage put in the... More

Alka - The Lake Side Hotel is most definitely the best hotel in Nainital. We visited Nainital in Feb, 2014 on the Valentine's day. There are a few other good hotels but the looks and the location of this hotel is definitely the best. The hotel has 4 floors and each floor has a big terrace. Haven't tried the food... More
