Abbotsford is one of those places that you immediately fall in love with . It is cozy, personalized, away from the chaos of main Nainital but yet close enough to walk down to all the main attractions. I stayed here for 2 nights and saw and experienced Nainital like never before. Abbotsford itself is full of history and the owners... More

As my cab chugged its way through the crowds i cursed myself for attempting a hill station in summer. Suddenly we went up a steep climb my cab offloaded me at a gate. Enchanted I felt i was back in Enid Blyton land - gabled roofs, grey stone the immediate feel was in an oasis of calm. The impression was... More

I was there for 4 nights and wish i could stay there longer. It is a perfect getaway to unwind and enjoy the sleepy town on nainital, though it is no more sleepy. Abbotsford is tucked away from the main mall road of Nainital, that is the reason it becomes the perfect getaway for somebody like me. The views from... More

I stayed at Abbotsford with my daughter for two nights. It is a cozy place tucked a little above Nainital. The cottage was built in 1876. It is now run as a homestay. I liked the food as it was simple and delicious. I asked for the local food one day and enjoyed it by the bonfire at dinner. I... More

We, 9 adults, 2 kids and a dog visited Abbotsford to bid 2015 adieu, and to welcome 2016. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. There were walks, including to Cheena Peak, visits to the zoo, boating on the lake, bonfires each night, and much more besides. It brought back happy memories of the past. The folks at Abbotsford were warm and welcoming,... More

I was there for an event. Didn't stay at the property (thankfully). Interacted with owners, who were friendly and helpful. But the caretaker attending to guests was not as courteous. Food served was not up to the mark. It was ice cold and staff had no idea how to serve (for example, a single spoon was kept to serve spaghetti)... More

Dear Sir, thank you for your open criticism. For one we are a 7 bedroom home stay and could only accommodate that many guests as directed to us by KLF management - in fact Shervani and Earls court are 4 star hotels much higher in stature than Abbotsford, we are just a home. As for the food - yes we... More

We stayed at Abbotsford for a week during the middle of winter and we found it to be a homestay in the best sense of the word..A cultured and yet very warm environment, with excellent home cooked food, a crackling fire at night and a truly sweet and hospitable Mrs.Aleem. Don't expect loud music or loud anything. It's an excellent... More

We recently stayed at Abbotsford for 2 nights and had a great stay. The architecture of the property is Victorian in style, with its gravel pathway, chimneys and period furniture. Added to this was the upgrade in room we received - we had booked a hill room but were given the 'king's room' and this was fabulous and beyond expectations.... More

Nostalgic and comfortable. Authentic home cooked food. Very different experience for the kids since it gave them the feel of staying in an early 19th century British Raj house in the hills. The view from here is just breath taking . The peace, serenity ... I could just go on and on ...
