Good place to stay if you want to be on the Mall. Reasonably spacious and clean rooms. Good view of the Lake from the room. Staffs are helpful and the food is good. Wifi connected although the signals are not always good. Centrally heating and lift are added advantage. I will like to recommend the hotel to my friends

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.
