There is nothing bad about this hotel but that essentially doesn't mean everything about it is good. The good part is that its just a 30-second walk from the mall road (main market) and yet away from the hustle-bustle of the market. The rooms are decent and the common balcony on the backdoor of every room gives a serene view of the valley and a nice ambiance for open-air dinners (if you can sit in the windy verandah).
The major issue I faced was that dinner was served as late as 9 pm. It becomes a problem esp. when you have kids with you. When I asked if they could serve me soup or plain rice for my kid a little in advance before the buffet was arranged, they agreed but on extra charge. The hotel's idea to make some extra money through such tactics appeared too cheap to me.
Soup was served in tea-cups! Toilet paper was given only when asked! The bath fittings were plain average and yet the hand shower wasn't working! Bathroom didn't have proper ventilation. I agree all these problem areas are trivial and I could have easily ignored them. But when the tariff is as premiumly priced at Rs 4500/day, you expect nothing but the best from them.
They had all basic amenities from 24-hour hot water service, inhouse gym and game zone to day-long (7am-11pm) room service. The best part was they had a desktop with internet for easy net-surfing. The street running down the hotel (to Camel Back point) stinks of horse dung but I guess the hotel can hardly do anything about it. To sum up, Nand Residency is not bad but not complete value for money. Either they can cut their tariff or enhance their standards.
