Nicely located guest house far from any hustle bustle.. Good property to visit if you want to spend some quality time with family and friends. Average food and service as you may expect from a Sarkari hotel..

We stayed at kmvn lakeside in may 2014. It is indeed a piece of heaven on earth. Utterly relaxing, on the edge of nakuchiatal. Very helpful staff. With this as base one can roam about nainital, sattal etc. Added bonus is paragliding. The boatride was the best here. It has the best location one can imagine.

so..its a government guest house and nothing luxurious about it..a good basic room and a restaurant with limited choices...but location is one thing that can compensate for anything....all rooms are lake facing and there is a small area in front of the hotel that is just above the lake..you can enjoy your tea there looking at the lake..do nothing but...

We had a roaring time at TRH Naukuchiatal. It has 3 main USP's...Location, Location, Location. You are facing a marvellous lake, rooms are all lake facing, comfortable, neat linen, homely food and awesome locale. We spent our time walking around lake, hiking to nearby villages, tasting local fruits, chatting with local, simple local folks. The TRH staff was good, service... More

This is one of the best place to stay for enjoying the views of the place. This is just by the lake and has very beautiful view of the lake. As we traveled there in peak offseason, had some tough time with food, but still the basic arrangement was very nice.

KMVN Tourist Rest House Naukuchiatal is bang opposite the lake and is a typical government property but its location is spell bounding and very serene. Its ideally suited only for peace lovers who just want to relax and sit idle for hours reading books or just lazying around. I liked the location of the property but didnot stay in it... More

Located at a serene location with room opening into the lake .....Since naukuchiyatal itself is at some distance from main tourist location, it's less crowded...rooms are large...but carry a pair of sleepers for sure....Please specifically check if Gyser is working before checking in....Being govt hotel, price is decent supported by decent services....These guys infact helped me in bon fire on...
