Visited recently, it's a great hotel. I visited in off-season so not many people were there. Staff is very polite and responsive. Food quality is good. Hotel provides Shuttle service(Bolero, Eco Car) for Mall road. Overall a great property with lot of green area.

This has been or 5th or 6th visit to this property. If not for Naini Retreat I doubt we would have visited Nainital that often. Each of our stays there has been a memorable one. The friendliest staff make you feel right at home from the moment that you arrive.

Out of my 2 nights in Nainital, we spent one at Naini Retreat. Absolutely loved the property, great views of the lake and mountains. They lit a bonfire in the evening and served snacks around it. The food is super and they have a superb wifi which works around the property. Surely the best in Nainital- must visit.

The hostess at reception is so intimidating, right from the time we entered the hotel, we were made to feel unwelcome. A horrible live band in the evening made things even worse. There is no escape!! The only saving grace is the room which has a loft and a nice view to the landscaped court.

Stayed with my family from 5th Aug to 9th Aug 2015. Took a Duplex attic room which accommodates 4 pax. Good option as all the family stays together. Room location was excellent , garden facing and a sit-out is provided along the window so that one can have an excellent view of the mountains and nainital. We would spend hours... More

We had been to The Naini Retreat in Feb 2013 and stayed there for 4 nights and 5 days. The experience was out of the world and much above expectations. We didn’t had bookings in advance so visited few hotels in Nainital and finally stamped this one as our home for the next 4 days. We negotiated hard for their... More

PROS- This was THE best hotel I've stayed in hands down. The views from here are terrific, especially the lakes and the mountains. The rooms were super comfortable and the food was awesome. The breakfast buffet had a really good range. We visited in December and this was the ONLY place in Nainital where we found snow, as the hotel... More
