I have visited Nainital in the month of June 2013 along with my family and chose HFAH based upon the excellent feedback it has received so far in Tripadvisor and also because of the fact that all other options for accommodation as per our budget were exhausted at that time! At the end of our tour all 4 of us...

Wonderful view, passable food (from Western perspective), good service and delightful company with the retired colonel. I would recommend to any budget-conscious (or even otherwse) visitor to Nainital; the view could not have been better, I doubt any other location save the zoo above it has a comparable view of the lake and opposite hillside. Better food within walking distance,...

This was the best part of my trip to Nainital. The property belongs to a Retd. Colonel and is located at one of the highest points of Nainital town. The owner stays there himself and has sublet a pert of his house for tourists. He is not one of those money-minded owners, instead he will go out of his way...
