“Great Property!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

This place is very picturesque.. It is on a slightly higher elevation than Nainital town and market.. You can see the whole lake from above along with the surrounding area .. I would specially like to thank Mr. Sudhir (Guest Relation Manager) for his exceptional service and hospitality... rooms are excellent, food is great and service is exceptional .. had booked 2 rooms - one for my parents and one for my wife and self ...

Room Tip: Take rooms facing the garden

I stayed in The Naini Retreat along with my wife and daughter from 22.11.2013 to 24.11.2013. We liked the hotel so much that we would love to visit again.
First I would like to tell some of the positives:-
1. Ambiance- one of the best
2. Food and services- one of the best
3. Hotel staff- friendly and helpful
4. Free pickup and drop facility from Naini Reatreat to Mall Road.
5. Bonfire with music every day in lawn.
6. Excellent Hospitality.
7. Good Housekeeping.

Some of the negative:-
1. Bit far away from mall road but same can be overcome with free pickup and drop facility.
2. Room size is bit small.
3. Menu is bit expensive.

Best part is that we arrived Nainital on 22nd November at 7.00 Am and Hotel authority allowed us for early check-in without any Excuses/Charges.
We stayed in Room no 307 which has a view of the Valley and garden- NICE ROOM

Room Tip: Rooms facing valley are Good.

Really a fantastic experience with Naini Retreat, when i was checked in my wife is not well. Naini Retreat staff provided all the necessary things like hot water bags...khichdi for my wife. They do all the things even without asking. And Hotel is very levish, clean. Although very costly and if you want to save money do not go with it.
If you have money then YAHI HAI RIGHT CHOICE.

Fantastic service by all staff, including the restaurant. We wanted to go on a hike to a nearby peak and one of the staff guided us at the end of his shift. At first I thought this was odd but I am so glad we had him. He was experienced, polite and professional.

The food was excellent as was the view.

My only gripe is that wifi didn't work while we were there. This turned out to be minor and I still rate it 5 stars. I would definitely stay there again!

I went to this place in Feb 2013 with my family and office team mates , The rooms are very nice and cosy and the view from the rooms is also very nice the service is good , But the location of the property is a big negative.There was a heavi snowfall on the night we were there ( We were very lucky in that way ) but due to snow fall we were cut off from every thing.Mall Road is quite far from this hotel.Food is good ( But a little expensive ).
And like every where the hotel staff wont listen to you untill you shout.
