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...

Right on the Lake Nainital; hotel with a great location. A lot of attractions and restaurants within walking distance. Rooms with a lake view. Rooms were clean. Furniture and upholstery is a bit dated. Staff members were courteous, helpful; served us a delicious breakfast on time (upon prior request).

The Grand is a heritage property built in 1872. It is reasonably maintained from the outside though there are many issues with the rooms and the dining area. The bathroom, for instance is poorly designed so that the bath water splashes all over the place. In our room (23) the bathroom did not have a window, only a door that...
