I stayed there for two nights, this is one of my best stay. resort is situated very beautifully with lush greenry, all staff from waiters to manager are too soft spoken and cooperative. even food quality is very good. I stayed in cottage , cottages are too spacious with lots of utilities i.e kitchen ,dining table, kitchen utencils and all that. in all last I thanks to their manager, chef and whole staff for making my memorable.

We stayed there for 3 Nights. The best part is the place & it is beautiful!

The bad part is poor quality rooms, cleanliness is missing (Staff was arguing that towels/linens are not dirty, it is just corrosion / stains). Geyser is not working, requested for repair but No response! On requested provided only 1 bucket of hot water for 3 people and asked us to request reception for any additional buckets!

Swimming pool is present but not cleaned for ages! Food quality is ok ! Sofa-Bed was broken. Far away from Nainital (~40 mins) drive.

Fun Rangers (entertainment dept) did try to keep us occupied in the evening,

If you paying so much for this property, with the same amount you will get much better options in Nainital! Unless u r desperate to stay in Country Inn , I do not recommend !

I visited Bhimtal somewhere around May 2011. We still remember this place a lot and even recommended to my younger brother and he also visited. We had a very comfortable stay over here. The property is also at a very beautiful location and service is also satisfactory. I think if someone wants to stay at Quite and calm place in Nainital it is the best place.

I am traveling several times to Bhimtal just to pass by but never stayed there as Nainital is near by, therefore always had stay at Nainital. This time myself and my wife decided to have one evening somewhere in Bhimtal. We went for the choice of hotels, only one name was known by every group member in my friend circle that was COUNTY INN Bhimtal. So I decided to stay there. And that was the right decision I did by choosing this resort. Never Had that experience regards to personalized service in Kumaon Region. Truly saying on my this time of visit I stayed 6 hotels within 15 days of time period and it was a leisure trip with my family, I was amazed by the service of Country Inn.

Location of the Resort is near by the Lake of Bhimtal, it takes you 3 to 5 minutes drive from Main lake. Hotel has very wide space for Car Parking, I had a round of entire property, good location for Big parties or wedding parties. Resort has very beautifully maintained gardens with numbers of different flowers. Next to lobby area Resort has huge Swimming Pool, Library was also available right front of Front desk with the Map of Main tourist places in Kumaon region and Uttarakhand just next to it. The best part I liked and that touched my heart that there were couples of Trees inside the resort at Lobby or Swimming Pool area, these trees were shelters for Hundred of Birds. Every evening all these birds make an attractive sound on their arrival at Resort after the Day. Great Job by Resort Management by taking this initiative and giving example to each visitor that everyone can facilitate the same way at their houses.

I did booking for this 2 weeks prior of my stay, Reservation was taken by Mr. Pradeep Pathak. The time I reached at hotel by 3 pm I was recognized by Mr Verma (Front Office Manager), I was really surprised that he called me by my name without checking any of his record. My Check in procedure was done very smoothly by Ms. Nicky (Receptionist), selection of welcome drinks were offered. Bellman service was available to escort me to my room. Bell man was not wearing any of hotel Uniform which was not professional as well, he just informed me that he has open the geyser in bathroom, rest everything I had to ask him whereas he could have informed me about the facilities and service of room. Room was very clean, large. Coffee Machine was available, weighting machine was provided, TV with all modern channels, room heater. Bathroom and toilet was very clean with necessary supplies. Amenities of fruits and cookies were offered on our dining table. They don't have room slippers for the guest, but I will appreciate that housekeeping staff provided me local slippers on my request. They could have denied as this is not there part but they managed to provide me. At evening I had a chat with Mr. Pradeep Rawat, very polite person with a pleasant tone of voice, he gave me a brief Idea about company and its services, mean time he informed me about the membership program of the hotel group for 30 years. I could see him everywhere in hotel to check the guest service, he has a smiley face and that is his plus on guest service and the way he speaks is extremely outstanding for guest relations. I was very pleased by meeting that professional hotelier. I will not hesitate to say that he is an asset to the company. At evening there was Hindi & English Band played by Mr. Amit and Sandy. Both of them were master of Guitar and Drum and of course the singing quality was spectacular. They were granting every single request of the guest only they missed mine coz I requested Nepali Song "Timro Man" :-) I believe they would not have the lyrics of it. Mean while they provided the information of the resort activities and further programs of evening. It was showing their professionalism on their job. Afterward we went to the DJ room, I don't know the name of DJ player but to be honest the DJ had nice collection of songs but mixing quality of Beats were poor. He was just playing one song after another but no clue on sound beats. Any how I enjoyed as my wife could see me dancing alone without any mood :-). Dinner Time : Still my mouth gets water just by thinking of that dinner. They are having their buffet Restaurant called FLAMES, I could not stop myself to eat each and every item. Staffs at Restaurant were so professional, one of the waiter was helping at soup counter to pour on everyone's bowl. One chef was standing behind the buffet counter to explain the buffet Items. All the food item were labeled with the item name, taste of food was extremely fantastic. Staffs were very flexible to fulfill our needs, our waiter Prem Joshi was very friendly with a cute smile on his face as I could see him very young person. I felt very pleased by meeting the main executive Chef Mr. Vijay Bhardwaj, he approached me personally to check whether we were satisfied with their food or not. Mr. Bhardwaj that was my one of the best Indian Dinner I ever had in that Kumaon region. Next morning I had to go back early, we went for one short Breakfast at Guftagu Restaurant, I was in hustle to go back, I was greeted and welcomed by Mr. Hem Kandpal with a great smile on his face and that put smile back on my face as well as I was bit tense but that guy changed my mind. Again Mr. Prem Joshi was our waiter, I was feeling quite well to see the same face to serve me. Mr. Rana (Senior waiter) came to my table to check on food and had a short chat. I could see that resort has very good F&B team. Thanks to Deepak Rawat as well to fix the TV channel on my request. Over all the resort has succeeded to build a great, friendly and professional team. I would like to Congratulate for this Mr. Joshi (GM of Resort). Over all service was excellent.

I will recommend this resort to any of the visitor to Bhimtal and Nainital, out of crowed, beautiful location, next to the main road, well parking facility, one and only swimming pool there at Bhimtal, well professional staff and of course I can't forget that mouth watering food.

Only the thing I will suggest to the Management of Country Inn Bhimtal to compile some Local Kumaoni cultural activities i.e. mixing some songs from Kumanon during their live band and to have at least one Kumaoni Dish on the buffet to represent that region on national market.

I wish entire team of the Resort all the very best and for Sure I will be there in future.

With Best Regards,

Govind Joshi

Room Tip: Call Directly Mr. Pradeep Pathak or Mr. Verma at Country Inn Bhimtal......... Best time to go after...

Well! my wife and self last visited our home property in country inn Bhimtal in October 2012 around the time of our marriage anniversary and we had a very relaxing time due to the efficient services of the staff who are always polite and sweet. The food available was very tasty and wholesome most of the time. To top it all when my wife fell ill due to some allergic food taken in an outside restaurant, the management was quick to arrange for a local doctor from Bhawali, much to our relief. The cottages are quite comfortable, although sometimes the cable TV goes off.
But at that time the well manicured garden lawns combined with the the natural habitat of the place came handy. The walks around the place are very nice and healthy, added to it are the grocery stores just outside the boundary of the resort which become very handy especially when you want to make your own breakfast or meal in the kitchen of your room The room is maintained well with some scope for improvement in the frequency of changing linen but the providing of the daily newspaper in time in the morning just after its arrival was a boon.
The music party which we attended was very invigorating with some soulful performances by the local band boys.
All in all it was a satisfying experience and we would like to renew our romance this year once again.
