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

I visited last week to this place.Resort is quite a walking distance from mall.although food quality is excellent but you have to tell in morning that what you want to have for dinner... Incase you forgot there is no dinner for you...not even maggi because they don't store food!!!

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

The unit has 2 inter-connecting rooms. The inner room has zero ventilation(no window). That means you need to open the windows of the outer room and then leave the inter-connecting door open for ventilation. The outer room has the only entrance to this unit. The bed is right in front of the entrance door- 2 feet. The entrance opens out... More

entering the gate of 'the hive' gives you a feeling of leisurely home stay but the moment we asked for our room, the concierge stated that our reservation was bumped since our travel agent did not confirm our reservation. The concierge offered a 'temporary room' as they are unable to accommodate us and said the room is small but is... More
