Stayed here for 3 nights in early December. The views are lovely.

The restraunt food is very good. The staff are nice enough and Engish is ok.

We had unlimited internet. The room was fine but could of been a wee bit better for the price and I agree with the other reviews about the toilets being very outdated.

The main thing is the olace is clean and very safe.

We would come back again.

Dont be surprised if after u check in the owners at receptions say, "this wont work, that wont be available" and so on. And if u dare to ask "why?" Be prepared to here "shut up, dont argue with us and take what is available or leave". Thats exactly what happened with us last week in Alka.

Pros: Good location, decent property considering the area, staff courteous. Cons: Bathrooms still of 60's, Heaters work only 7pm to 7am, Resto- expensive, Stay very very expensive considering luxury options these days at thst price.

we are from delhi so not every hotel meets our standard. we wandered around for a couple of hours for a good hotel and visited about a dozen of nasty ones. but this was the best hotel on the mall road. there were other 5 star hotels too but none was on the mall road and were far away from Nainital Mall Road.

Room Tip: on the third floor there are only three rooms and a big balcony attached with corridor with synthetic grass and excellent seating arrangement.

We stayed one night in one of the Royal rooms on first floor. Room was very well decorated. We were bit disappointed with the bathroom as the tiles were cracked and the bucket inside the bathroom looked like its been there for last 20yrs. Also,for the price and for the Royal room, I would atleast expect a coffee maker. Oh and the quality of menu in room looked like
the one you usually find in Dhabas. Over all it was okay....
