The hotel was located on Mall Road and was the most beautiful from outside. But the prices they r charging is very high according to the service they r giving Very bad reception staff just don't know how to speak to the clients. Putting service taxes extra never hurts when u get the service, but when u r not satisfied... More

As we visited in DEC last week, breakfast was not included in package. lunch and dinner can be ordered in room but we preferred going to Sanjha Chulha and shere panjab which were at stone thrown distance...

If you want to enjoy the beauty of nainital, this is the place to stay. It offers the best view. Rooms are also spacious and tidy. Food is good. Staff is polite except the receptionist. We opted the room on 3rd floor and enjoyed every bit of it.

Good hotel with best view of the lake, rooms are a bit old and tired looking, but due to the location on the mall this hotel is good.Take the room on the ground floor next to the reception, as these are big rooms with a common sit-out and have nice view of the lake.Have stayed at many other hotels in...

Stayed in September in Economy Rooms. Following are my thoughts: 1. Location wise its excellent which is lake facing and on Mall road. No parking facility though. 2. Rooms were clean and nice but a bit less justified in providing amenities in that price. Economy rooms are small too. 3. Lift starts from 1st floor which may be inconvenient for... More

Something went very wrong with my booking and the staff at reception gave no indication that they were prepared to assist to sort it out. Instead they launched directly into the process of completing 'form C' and putting room keys in our hands. The rooms we were given were substandard - no tea, coffee or shower. Make shift stairs had... More
