In terms of location, difficult to beat The Grand, situated on the Mall Road with a view of Naini Tal's iconic lake. (*) For a good view of the lake, however, do pay the premium - but take rooms on the first floor: the ground-floor rooms (except for a few towards one end) allow for a view of the cars...

Built in 1872, the Grand hotel is truly colonial with large carpeted rooms and all the basic amenities one would need for a ideal stay. A family of four, we took a suite on the first floor which offers a stunning view of Naini lake. The staff is very courteous, some whose service to the hotel goes back generations. Apparently,...

The location is the USP. Besides that may be the quaint architecture and food served in house the pull factor. And for us, these were the only two things which made difference in our brief stay. Considering shoulder season, our early arrival was well accommodated with quick check-in and room allotment. However, there is nothing much to say about the...

Stayed there in October 2016, with wife and kid. Location is great, service is good, food is good too, once in a while you run out of change and service staff stays for several seconds for tip - but its okay every body wants a quick buck. I like the ambiance, I and my family enjoyed it. While boating, the...

It's Location, ambience, feel, British architecture, view of lake from first floor, everything is great. Bathroom is a place, you may feel, should be upgraded. One should remember to take prior booking in season time as it may be full. It is closed during winters.

There's nothing like the grand nainital. Right in the middle of the mall. It's got a nice old world charm and warmth like none other. Tip: just order your meals well in advance if you plan to dine in the hotel itself. They prepare fresh meals.

We came across this beautiful property by chance. We were a group of 5 girls and stayed at Grand Hotel just for 1 night. This hotel was made by Britishers around 1873 and still gives you the same feel. Right on the mall road with amazing view of Naini lake. Rooms have common balcony and they have round tables to...
