Nothing is wrong in this hotel. I would like to speak on the points which actually matters when booking hotel online. 1. Value for money- While booking, you may find this hotel a bit costly but a bit of discount from here and there could get you a good price. 2. Location- The hotel is located a bit far from... More

Property was very nice as it was a heritage four star property. I liked the staff and service they provided very much. All were very cordial, soft spoken... More

We were a group of 20 from office with families and had a ball of a time - spent 2 nights; perfectly located - not too close to the lake's humdrum and on top of a hill for a breathtaking view of the city and the lake. There is a shortcut to go down to the lake, but for people... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights recently.Finding the right hotel at Nainital (3-4 star range) can be a exhausting experience.This is because there are not too many hotels in this category near the lake and the ones that can be considered are either too expensive or extremely poor in terms of service and quality of rooms.The Naini...

Only one drawback. to exit the resort the climb is very steep. Entering the hotel is no problem. Only when you desire to go out of the hotel that you will encounter a steep slop which one needs to climb. This one and the only drawback otherwise it is the best place. In spite of this, I would go back... More

Location strikes gold... Enjoy postcard Naini lake views through out your stay - walk down a short route to lake or simply take complimentary car drop/pickup to lake. Beautifully landscaped garden, extra courteous staff, excellent veg food choices & icing on cake - well are their sumptuous desserts.... Fruit cake, peach stew, mango mousse... Most rooms have excellent mountain view... More
