Hotel Padmini Nivas
Ranked #7 of 77 Hotels in Mussoorie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 2, 2012

after thorough research of budget hotels and after due diligence and particularly trip advisor reviews,which i believe are true and accurate,we booked for a double bedroom in the hotel.
Upon arrival,we were warmly received by the reception staff,after been taken to several available rooms,i was kind of not satisfied,finally ,they offered me a great room opposite to the resturant.The room was pretty big,hat a half oval sitting area along the windows,abig bathroom.we were deligthed with the room.
The most important aspect that iwas wanting was the hotel is of heritage genre,the location which is slab bang on The Mall Road,Yet very quiet and serene,good landscaping.
I particularly liked their veranda,which is quite big and great to sit out and relax.
The staff are very friendly and eager to help and assist you.
The Gujarati food in their resturant is awesome,we ate one meal there almost all the days of our stay in mussorie.

Room Tip: try to book yourselves in the main hotel block.

I must say this is one of the few hotels who has kept it's sanctity intact among money minded hotels flourished at all hill stations.

The most striking feature is it's heritage genre, which keeps you coming again and again.

The premises are very well landscaped with different varieties of flowers in full bloom.

The hotel location is ideal ... among the lap of nature as well as close to mall road , camel back road and taxi stand.

Rooms are very clean and comfortable offering excellent valley views..

Food is only vegetarian but amaa,,,zzz,,ing ,,,A special mention is must about their "aloo parathas, chole-Bhature and stuffed bread pakodas"

My ratings on a scale of 5 are as below

Rooms- 4/5
Food - 4.5 / 5
Cleanliness- 4.5 / 5
Value for money- 4 / 5

With flowering gardens, delicious dishes and attentive service, Padmini Nivas offered a secluded oasis from the crowded bustle of Mussorie. Situated literately just below the main street, the hotel provided quick and central access to the shops, restaurants and treks of Mussorie but with enough distance to block out most of the street noise. Descending into Padmini Nivas from the mall feels like arriving home: the antique charm of the heritage hotel mixed with its tasteful modernization makes for a comfortable and cozy place to nestle up in one of their many benches amidst a colorful garden and read a book or sip a chai. We spent many early mornings and late afternoons swinging on the swing or drinking tea at the picnic table that overlooks the Doon valley.

Our personal waiter checked in with us regularly about our meals, activities and room needs and was attentive enough to make us feel cared for but not overly bothered. The food is delicious and well flavored - I highly recommend the Gujarati thali, which was particularly flavorful (and not spicy). Vikram the manager was particularly warm and helpful and Moti the dog accompanied us on several jaunts around the mall. Our room was ticket away amidst pine trees and petunias in a cottage and was well furnished and cared for, with a recently installed new geyser, toilet and sink, fresh paint and clean sheets.

I highly recommend Padmini Nivas as a home away from home where you can appreciate the true and natural gifts of the hill station in comfort.

Despite being on Mall road, one does not feel cut-off from the nature since the entire hotel, a heritage property, its small garden, most of the rooms face the natural surroundings overlooking the valley. As soon as one enters the hotel from the rood, one instantly feels fresh and away from the hustle and bustle. Food is outstanding and reasonably priced. Overall, one gets a very homely feeling staying here. Accommodation is not luxurious or fancy but comfortable. Staff is warm too. Very good value for money. There should be a bit more cleanliness around kitchen area backside on the path leading to the rooms. And if breakfast should preferably part of the room tariff. Strongly recommended for stay and/or dining too. Great value.

Room Tip: Avoid the 2-3 rooms without a view. Stick to the mountain view rooms.

Located conveniently on the Mall road,its a good place to stay though a bit inconvenient because of rubbish traffic restrictions of the local administration.The rooms are spacious with clean linen.Service was good and vegetarian food was OK.Dinner to be ordered well before 10pm.

From the beautiful rose gardens and singing birds to the delicious food and the friendliest Bhutiya dog, Padmini Nivas is a place you dont want to miss. Right on the Mall road yet cut away from all the hustle and bustle, this hotel will give you the quiet coziness of being in the hills yet leaving you with the accessibility to everything you want to do in Mussoorie. The staff is friendly and prompt, the food is simple yet tasty and the rooms are luxurious. Great place to bring your family or even visit with friends. I loved my time here.
