Me and my wife arrived at Nainital from Dehradoon by train. We hired a taxi outside Kathgodam station which is the rail head for Nainital. After climbing the ghats we arrived at the scenic and beautiful Nainital town. We reached Aroma hotel after a brief climb since it is around 2 kms from the main town area.
Location- Is beautiful with trees around and situated higher than the main town area. The hotel has regular jeep transfer service from the mall end road to the hotel till 9 PM which makes it convenient. You can also walk down/ up a path leading to the town if you wish to burn some calories.
Rooms- We had taken a premium room which was very big and has a spacious bath room with bath tub. The rooms are old but comfortable. It was very cold for us when we arrived and felt almost freezing. The hot water was till 10 AM when we visited in November.
Service – It was ok but nothing to write about. We had to ask for towels etc and initially call them to get things fixed. But once we settled down, the room service delivered hot breakfast and tea which made us feel very comfortable.
Food – The food was good and we did not have any complaints on the breakfast and dinner we had. We used to lunch out since we were on sight seeing during the day. We have to rely on the room service since their restaurant was not functional at that time and there are no restaurants nearby.
Finally what we liked most was the location of the hotel and offers good value for money. The food is good. However it is highly recommended that you make your own transport arrangements since the hotel staff even though assuring us of arranging travel, in the end we had to fend for ourselves which was the only sore experience. I recommend this hotel as a good option away from the hustle and bustle of the main town.
