Naini Retreat, A real treat for eyes and food lovers. Property is noise free and away from actual Nainital, but there is scenic short route to bazaar. Also there is free pick and drop shuttle service. Lake and mountain facing rooms are really cool. Three things must say are excellent & clean rooms, friendly staff and good buffet variety in... More

Pros: 1. Excellent and Clean Rooms 2. Friendly staff 3. Good buffet variety in dinner and breakfast Cons: 1. Hotel Location (Need to drive through very narrow roods inside city). But if you need to travel to city center, they have complementary pickup & drop service 2. Too many stares to climb (specially for aged persons)

Naini retreat, as I was told happens to be the oldest property. The property is located in a noise free and a little isolated place from the actual Nainital’s busy localities and yet is very close by, it is facing the lake and you still get a pretty decent view of the lake from few places as trees have grown...

Its being first time we visited Nainital and I would say, Naini retreat is great place to stay. I stayed in a suite and the moment we enter in our room, we really surprised to see the traditional interior with amazing wood work. The hotel is beautifully designed and maintained with amazing food, great people. We loved every moment of... More

The hotel wifi was not working, shuttle service between hotel and mall road was provided between 10am to 8pm. The location of the Hotel is bit far far from... More

I've been fortunate to stay in some of the best hotels around the world and I can honestly say that nowhere comes close to the service at the Naina Retreat. Everyone polite, welcoming and helpful - from the front desk to the maintenance men. The western menu leaves something to be desired - but I was staying for 10 nights,... More

A beautifully restored and maintained Heritage Hotel located on the slopes of the Ayapartta Hill. The service and food were excellent, the staff friendly and helpful. The Hotel runs a complimentary shuttle service to and from the town and can arrange for tours of local sites of interest. They provided a car to take me to and from Muktewar at... More

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel, overall experience was very good. Though you have to pass by some narrow hilly streets to reach this hotel and you feel it quite far from Taal. But the overall stay and services will suppress your first impression. Very good destination for family and the property is quite well maintained. All the staff... More
