If you enjoy walking, then its a good 30 min walking distance away from the mall road or else a you can drive down. The rooms with the laced up... More

It was my brothers wedding and the bride was from Nainital. The recent devastation in Uttrakhand was too much of a deterrent for my family to go to Nainital. I booked up at Emiily Lodge as some locals had told me that the ayar pata side of Nainital is a much safer belt if one had to travel to this... More

We selected this place mainly due to its association w/ Jim Corbett and of course from the reviews and the charming photos on the internet. It was going to be a special treat for my... More

Being in business for 3 years we are now capable of holding our heads high in pride at the same time while being humble, welcoming and most helpful for those that are deserving clients. In the face of such dilemmas... More

As lodge managers it is out third year at Emiily Lodge. We realize that operating properties like Emiily Lodge is not easy, as the building is ancient. There are times when we are at a loss for words and the only words that come to forefront are apologies. The plumbing lines are all rectified and tested in the annual repairing... More
