“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Very good location at mall road, and the staff specially mr. Manish is very supporting.
Rooms are clean and have a view to don valley. We have stay hear 4 night with good experience. I would recommend this hotel for all vegans, who would not only enjoy good veg food but also good hospitality .

Room Tip: Cottage with dlx room is best for a family

This was my second visit to Padmini Niwas. It is such a comfortable property and very ideally located on the Mall. We stayed in the main house. The Room was large and very comfortable. The furniture was in the room was just right and not cluttered. The back of the room opened to the view of the valley. The hotel is encapsuled by greens and very pretty flowers. The hotel is at different levels and each level has these nooks and corners which offer great view and some of them are ideal for just quiet and peace and for reading. The front of the hotel also overlooks the valley and there are seating available for you to just sit and enjoy the view. Many a times, while on the property, you will be engulfed in the clouds. The night, in my view is the most spectacular as it provides the view of Dehradun. The lights at night in Dehradun seem like little pearls that are adorning the valley.

While the resort is located well, its also the people of the resort which give the reputation that it enjoys.They are very helpful and the staff are always willing to serve you whereever you are sitting, even if it means going up and down many levels to serve for as many times as you want. The Manager Vikram is also very couteous and helpful and manages his people well.

The food is excellent. Infact, I have to mention that their dals are one of the best that I have had. Its a pure vegetarian place but one does not miss the non-vegetarian food as the food is delicious.

I have been to this hotel three times and I plan to go back again. This is a colonial bungalow turned into hotel and gives you a feeling of a home in hill-station you always wanted. The best part is the location which is right below the mall road overlooking the doon valley. I loved having breakfast every morning in the open area with a fantastic view. The food is good and they specialize in Gujarati Thali. The rooms are clean and service is prompt. All this available at relatively economical prices. I would recommend room number 11 which is actually a cottage and gives you an additional privacy. The room tariff are relatively economical considering the benefits you get. I strongly recommend this hotel if you are looking to relax and enjoy old world charm.

A simple, clean and value for money property. Its a well managed heritage hotel with homely food. You will not get a better location - its amazing to have a property in the middle of the Mall. The rooms are clean, bathrooms are ok but service is pretty good. The garden and view of the hills is icing on the cake. If you are looking for something clean, hospitable but nothing fancy - you have come to the right place.
