up on the hill, in a quite corner of the Nainital mountains lies abbotsford. A wondeful place to spend time with ur family. More like a home away from home with a touch of Royal life style. A new year well spent. Stay was superb. All credit to the staff especially Mrs Aleem. Everything was well taken care of. A... More

Thanks very much for your wonderful review. Yes! I wish too if i could make the baths more luxurious with tubs etc but one of the reasons is to keep them basic and comfortable is to save water, the hills are depleting in their natural water resources by the day, that is something that we are very conscious about in...

Away up the hill, beyond the chaos of the lake and the crowded little town is a road that winds ever upwards. Beyond Prasada House (as it is known in the town) Abbotsford is a four chimney cottage with red roofs and old-fashioned fireplaces. It makes you feel that you're in the pages of an Enid Blyton book. In fact,... More

A warm welcome and much appreciated tea and biscuits awaited our arrival after a long journey from Delhi. We were very happy with our choice of room, the Princess suite. Enormous and luxurious, with some lovely personal touches, like the family photos on the wall and in the lounge area, books and ornaments. However, a slightly softer mattress would have... More

We spent an idyllic 4 days at Abbotsford. What a lovely location, away from the bustle of the town with a beautiful garden and a super view.

I stayed at Abbotsford (Prasada Bhawan) in the 3rd week of May 2013. It's a charming, spacious and peaceful. A great place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing, rejuvenating break, and want to put your foot up, read a book and take nice long walks. Located off the main mall road and market, just at the beginning... More

We were booked at a decent local Hotel for our three nights stay at Nainital. However, en-route on our way up, I felt that we must explore Abbotsford. It was a spot decision and we walked into this "Amazing Jewel" blindfolded; no regrets thereafter. Far from the maddening crowd, the location is a personification of peace and serenity. Extremely well... More
