A historic heritage hotel located in a beautiful hillside garden with fabulous views of Nainital lake- authentic period details, lovely verandah sit-out, nicely restored rooms with beautiful old furniture, carpets - very colonial in feel, with good service and terrific breakfast. Lovely lake-facing lounge, and the room has an attached sun-room with a glorious view of the lake. Very pleasant... More

The Palace Belvedere is truly a palace turned heritage hotel tucked amid the unruly urbanization of Nainital. This was once a summer retreat of the Maharajas of Rajgarh - a princely state in the modern Madhya Pradesh state in India. Once you navigate through the concrete facades and labyrinth of ways through the eastern hill atop Naini lake, you are... More

Really loved the building. It is near the lake within walkable distance to the market also. Can easily walk out for a boating in the lake too. Food was good. The rooms are spacious. It is an old property, but there was a special beauty to the building and a very nice garden. This is a mid level hotel. There... More

This is a heritage hotel owned by some royal family. We stayed here for 2 nights and had a very good experience. The service of the staff was excellent. The lake view room which we took had a small sit out room with view of the Nainital Lake which was really a great addition to the room. We almost spent... More

The location of this quaint little summer palace is breathtaking. It gives you the feel of a royal holiday. But that stays in the lounge only. We were given so called deluxe room which was no more than the servants quarters of royals. The rooms given to us were smelly, the staff didn't change the toiletries,Oh wait, there were no... More

Antique because it was built in the british india's time and thus most of the part of the hotel you see dates back to 100 years. For people enthusiast about antique stuff and find beauty in those things, this hotel is a must visit! The prices are a li'll on the higher side (value for money: 7/10). The food is... More
