on arrival to Nainital we looked at 4 hotels before settling on the Hotel Evelyn, with 60 rooms and located on the Mall Road, just on the beginning of the Zoo Road...southern end of Nainital. 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...

We stayed there in May of this year. We looked at several places along the Mall- and Evelyn was the nicest by far. Location was great. It's near the beginning of the Mall, which is much quieter than the end close to the Tibetan Market (that gets hectic and *noisy*). View was beautiful. The hotel has several levels, get a... More

One of my favourite spots in the world, this hotel has a unique charm and the best location. However, it is true what all these other reviews say...Needs work and p'raps a woman's touch? My husband and I stayed for a few nights this September, way up on the top floor. 111 steps each way, up & down. Fantastic workout!... More

We got an amazing room, right on top floor (sort of like a terrace) of the hotel. The room was airy, with lots of windows and a private balcony and surprisingly super clean and large bathroom. Both room AND bathroom had beautiful view of the lake (bathroom had a huge window overlooking the lake). The staff was simple and nice.... More

Everytime I have been to Nainital I have stayed in this particular hotel just because of its location and terrace view of the lake which is better than Alka! The rooms on the 2nd floor onwards are better choice as the view from terrace and verandah is awesome.It was so peaceful to sit with a cup of tea and just... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Evelyn is among one of the oldest hotels in Nainital and has a rich history of hospitality. It has been serving guests even before the town became a retreat for city-weary souls and saw a burgeoning hotel industry. Before 1947, Mrs Page, a British lady ran a guesthouse of the same name, where the hotel stands today. Since Indian Independence, it has been owned and run by Mr S.L Sah's family. It was his will power and dynamism that metamorphosed a small guesthouse into a 60-room hotel.Today Hotel Evelyn offers the height of convenience and comfort to guests. From the Mall Road you can get a glimpse of the impressive facade of the hotel and as you explore further a visual treat awaits you. It has a magnificent view of the Naini lake, the weeping willows arched delicately over the resplendent waters and the Holy 'Pashan Devi' temple right across. The flower be-decked terrace will simply take your breath away. The hotel rooms are elegant and equipped with modern amenities to make your stay a memorable one.Choosing from a myriad of hotels in Nainital can be quite a task, but if you want to experience the old world chalet-like charm of wooden paneled walls coupled with the luxury of all modern amenities, then ours is the hotel that you need to head to. ... more   less
