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

Well maintained resort, hospitable staff, excellent service in the restaurant, go for lake facing rooms for good views, garden rooms have views from the garden, there was no buffet due to low occupancy but they brought us food on our table from a wide spread of dishes on the menu for the day, were treated like royalty at their restaurant...

Heritage hotel. The initial trip to the hotel scares you because it seems that its really far from the Flats. But fear not, there is a wonderful short cut which takes 6 minutes to go down and 15 minutes to come up. Its wonderful exercise and really worth it. The hotel is wonderful. Excellent rooms, wonderful , friendly and considerate... More

Had been with my cousins and family to Naini Retreat, along with my uncle who had knee problem and couldn't climb stairs or walk much. Overall the Hotel is good but has many stairs to climb to reach to the hotel, so senior citizens and family with small kids...watch out! Vehicles also cannot go right upto the hotel premises. Moreover,... More
