Rs 8000 / day booking denied when we reached hotel. Forced to stay in another hotel where rate was less. Second day dumped in room with no windows. Beware. Lot of fighting. Complaints to makemytrip. In the end, my family suffered. Paltry refund after 2 months of fighting. Go on your own risk.

Unlike a typical B&B, Radhika who owns Silent Trail played the perfect host. We were travelling to Nainital from Delhi. It was a 10 hour drive which meant that we would be reaching Nainital at 8 p.m. Radhika called us in the afternoon inquiring on where we were and what would our 6 year ols son prefer for dnner as...

A very small property with limited amenities. Super excellent service which makes for all the shortcomings. Pros: - Close to nature, away from hustle & bustle of main city area. Find yourself amidst chirping birds and langoors - Excellent food. Its like a super tasty home made food. - Very good service by staff. specially the property manager Kailash Bisht... More

It was my first trip to City of Lakes and based on friend's recommendation I chose to stay at 'The Hive'. It was a hectic 8 hours drive to Nainital from Noida and all my family was looking forward to was a comfortable room and good food. So, long story cut short, we landed up at The Hive around 3PM...

In today's hectic lifestyle and busy schedules where everyone is slogging to make their life’s better, it's equally important to rejuvenate the body and soul. What better place than the city of lakes Nainitaal. It has always been enchanting to visit the hill station, but, this time around it was an altogether different experience. The Hive, situated in the midst... More

I stayed in room#1 that has 2 attached rooms and single washroom. I stayed with my mother, wife and two kids. This place is a steep climb from mall but the greenery/view/fresh air is perfect. I did not mind the climb as I had a car with driver. We loved the room that was done up in heritage/colonial style and... More

Reaching the hotel was easier than we thought. It is perfectly placed a little away from the din and bustle of the tourist city, but not too far from the fun points. A few more signposts on the way would have been better. Branding of 'The Hive' is badly needed. Once you enter the property, you know this is a... More
