This is a nice place to stay in Bhimtal, away from the madning crowd of Nanital, offcourae we have yo compromise on weather as bhimtal is still on warmer side or may be I felt it... There is a resturant in the hotel, but its better to be avoided, at a drive of 2 mins or a walk to 10... More

There is nothing called room service in the hotel, you won't get food to eat even if you are... More

On other occassions the lights. The TV was as good as non functional for the next 3-4 days. I had made up my mind that I will... More

I stayed in the bhimtal resort for a day and it was a horrible experience. This is amidst all the recent rain which has happened in Uttarakhand. This resort may have the best location and the exteriors but it has sub standard rooms and unclean utensils and horrendous services. Moreover it didn't have electricity and due to some goofup they...

This resort has got one of the best locations; however the disappointed I faced is with the disinterested and incompetent staff along with some really shoddy rooms. The room I got did not have a proper latch so one had to put in a lot of effort to lock the room. Also, the window did not have a curtain that... More

I just visited Van Vilas with my family last weekend. I booked the cottage for 2 nights, however, left it just after one night stay. It is a perfect example of the saying that "Looks are deceptive". Services are very poor, mismanaged. Non-cooperative staff who did not even bother for specifics when I told them the reason of leaving early... More
