We stayed at Evelyn twice; in August 2015 and in November 2015. We stayed on the top floor on both the visits. Rooms at the top floor and the floor below it are the best. One can have a clear view of Nainital lake from there. Evelyn has a very well maintained terrace garden too with hundreds of flower plants.... More

The food served by the hotel was good too. We had gone there during the peak season but the rooms were priced quite nominally. All in all a good... More

The Hotel is at Excellent Location. Very Near to Naini Lake and in the Heart of Mall Road. This is the only advantage this hotel has . Apart from that, Rooms are big but not clean, Fooding is average, Hotel satff constantly asks for tips. ALKA HOTEL near by would be a great alternative

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Evelyn is among one of the oldest hotels in Nainital and has a rich history of hospitality. It has been serving guests even before the town became a retreat for city-weary souls and saw a burgeoning hotel industry. Before 1947, Mrs Page, a British lady ran a guesthouse of the same name, where the hotel stands today. Since Indian Independence, it has been owned and run by Mr S.L Sah's family. It was his will power and dynamism that metamorphosed a small guesthouse into a 60-room hotel.Today Hotel Evelyn offers the height of convenience and comfort to guests. From the Mall Road you can get a glimpse of the impressive facade of the hotel and as you explore further a visual treat awaits you. It has a magnificent view of the Naini lake, the weeping willows arched delicately over the resplendent waters and the Holy 'Pashan Devi' temple right across. The flower be-decked terrace will simply take your breath away. The hotel rooms are elegant and equipped with modern amenities to make your stay a memorable one.Choosing from a myriad of hotels in Nainital can be quite a task, but if you want to experience the old world chalet-like charm of wooden paneled walls coupled with the luxury of all modern amenities, then ours is the hotel that you need to head to. ... more   less
