Hotel Room was good, very neat and clean, you can view and enjoy the beautiful Naini Lake from here. I went to Nainital by own car, I and my family enjoyed the long drive, also I earned experience to drive in hill area. Journey was so good.

A cozy place, very warmly designed. Beautiful rooms, with nice interiors. Good use of space provided in rooms. The rooms are clean, decent and the people are really helpful. The staff is very helpful. You get a splendid view of Naini Lake from the hotel. Zoo is nearby. Free pick up is also provided from Mall road to hotel.
