Please don't waste your money by staying in this hotel. They don't give meal plan, so you have to either buy expensive food served in their restaurant or go out every time. Their staff is lazy. People sitting in reception don't have basic manners of offering water to guests who had come all the way from Delhi. Rooms aren't clean.... More

We had a long standing reservation at this hotel for a two weeks stay made by phone as they failed to answer the email we sent - that should have been warning enough but stupidly we persevered. We arrived in the area a few days early luckily and went to see the hotel where we were told they only take... More

The hotel is just at the mall, very close to the lake. In general it's a nice hotel but it's not maintained well. There are lots of bugs, probably bed bugs, in the room, I noticed also some worms on the floor. The hotel owner is nice, he got us a deal for travels. The rooms upstairs have a great... More

We stayed a week. Our rooms were 1400 and 1500 rps, about $25 USD, though there were rooms in the property that were less. While... More

We had a brief stopover at Nainital for a night en route to Delhi from further up in Uttaranchal. I had heard good things about this hotel, and it has a bit of a history - the famous author Ram Dass (more than 2 million books sold), and the Grammy nominated singer Krishna Das spent a lot of time here...
