We had heard many good things about this place but unfortunately none of them held true for us during our short (thankfully) stay. The property is picturesque and well maintained but the rooms are rather small and ill equipped (Phone and fan both were not working in the Suite). There is no privacy during the day because people come in... More

the positives: 1. Nice tucked away place where you can hear the river 2. Delicious food even if its a tad expensive compared to the region's standards. (the soup and salad were the best; pastas and veggies were good but pizza tasted too local and would be rated the lowest among all dishes ) 3. heavenly lemonade the negatives: 1.... More

Had read up all the reviews on Trip Advisor before going, thus was looking forward to the place.. Honestly on reaching we were very scared initially coz it was very remotely located and totally pitch dark.. But later on reaching and meeting the owners wife realised its not at all a hotel / resort but its actually a home stay..... More

We visited this place around first week of august 2013. On arriving we were well greeted and shown our booked cottage.. We did find our cottage bit small considering the amount it cost, but since it was raining and we did not come by our private vehicle..we decided to stay on..(This place is around 12-13 km from city)..we definitely loved...

ive been to akshays place couple of times. very private, practically in natures belly and the most authentic European culinary one can savour. as they do not take walk/ins one needs to make reservations atleast 24hrs prior. i recommend this place.

Run by Akshay, this is one of the better off beat destinations to stay around Nainital. It lies on Kathgodam Almora Road and best way to reach here is via Bhimtal. The Owner, Akshay is fine person and helped us book a cab from kathgodam station. As soon as you enter the resort you are greeted by huge Bell Flower... More

We stayed here as 2 families with 2 little children. The place is tucked away on a hill slope. The good part first. It is truly beautiful. It is so green and they have a lovely little garden. But the best part of our stay was the food. I have never met anyone so passionate about serving excellent food to... More

We didnt stay at this property... just went there for lunch from Nainital. Its about a 15 min picturesque drive from main Nainital and well worth it. You end up in the middle of nowhere, mountains on all sides and a lil stream flowing below. Akshay had organized an 8 course lunch spread for our family, which we had at... More
