We celebrated my brother's wedding at Shervani Hilltop, Nainital, in April 2013.
Both families are from Delhi, and had agreed to organize the wedding in Nainital, away from the maddening traffic, long commutes and heat of Delhi. We and some of our friends and family had stayed before at Shervani, and since the hotel was closest to our requirements in terms of rooms and facilities, we settled for the place.
In retrospect, it turned out to be a very good decision.
We stayed for four days, and had booked all the thirty rooms for about 2 days in the middle with around half the rooms for the first and the last days. All the meals were served in the hotel, and our guests really enjoyed the varied spread during the entire stay. The food at the hotel is all cooked in house and their bakery presentations are something to die for. Breakfast in the mornings under the sun and shade of the outdoors was the most enjoyable meal for almost everyone.
On the Cocktail Night the barbecue was awesome and the live singer added much to everyone’s entertainment with old Hindi numbers and some English ones as well. Arrangements for the Sangeet had to be shifted indoors, because of an unexpected hail storm in the afternoon, but the guests enjoyed every bit of the evening. The wedding night was magical with the splendor of lights on the trees, a dark star-spangled sky and the cool, brisk air of the evening. The warmth of the bonfires, the taste of local Kumaoni cuisine and Choliya music added more charm to the celebrations.
The staff and management of Shervani Hilltop exceeded expectations on all counts.
The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable, with efficient housekeeping.
On the service front, not once did any staff member of Shervani refuse any guest request. They always ensured that even if it was not their job, somebody else came and serviced the request.
Small things like the ironing rates were very reasonable, much lower than what we had expected, and so nobody had to think twice about such things.
The kids made full use of the well maintained games room, toddler's area, and well kept lawns. And the guests also made use of the regular shuttle service between the hotel and the Mall road.
Shervani helped the families coordinate all wedding arrangements for the jai-mal stage, the mandap, dance floor, et al.
All in all, it was the perfect wedding destination and we would highly recommend Shervani Hilltop for their hospitality, professionalism, and attention to detail.
