Visited in June 2014, myself and my family had a terrible experience. The 2 rooms allotted to us were dingy, run down and downright dirty with no view whatsoever. And those were supposed to be their 'premium' rooms. Service was crappy, especially at the restaurant. Only one or two waiters were doing their duty diligently while you could always find... More

the positioning of the hotel is not apt for winters as it becomes quite windy and all our group members fell sick. the winds starting from naina devi mandir croos the jheel and become quite chilly and the hotel is just placed at the other end of the jheel hence making the location not apt

Dear Guest, That read like a weather report, I see there has been no mention of our services, rooms, facilities etc. Nainital is a hill station so it gets cold in winters more than the northern plains, so next time if you plan a trip to a hill station go prepared with woolens and warmers. Infact the whole of nainital... More

The view of the Naini Lake from the hotel is very good. Have a very goof lobby to sit and enjoy in the evening. The rooms are of heritage type of nature. The beds sometimes make sounds when sleeping because of old furniture. The only one problem I have faced is that the hotel is at a height which makes... More

I love this room where I was stay in Hotel Himalaya for 3 days. It was "Lake Facing Room" as well as near about bus stand. We received good room services, car parking, in-house games like Golf and Carrom. I was very happy to play Golf. Overall,It was amazing experience to stay there.

One of the best views that you can get from Tallital side of Nainital (definitely depends on your room choice). I can tell this because I have visited Nainital since childhood and nothing less than 50 times. We received good service from the staff so overall a fine experience. Food is average but hygienic. A steep climb might be a... More

Very average hotel, had to settle for this option as we arrived late in Nainital and most of the town was closed. When we first inquired about rooms, a waiter from the restaurant took us to show the rooms and he was the only one to finalize the rates also. We then went back to call our driver to park... More
