Calling the place excellent will be an understatement. Let me summarize the place in points so that we don't loose track of the good things going at Garden Valley.
First the place ideally located just a half an hour drive away from Nainital.
En route to Almorah and Ranikhet. so it can be a pleasant stopover if you are headed that way.
Second the ambiance the place had all the characteristics of a Mountain Lodge, in close proximity to a river stream, which you can hear all over the property. The feel of the place is rustic and laid back. The rooms are cost and comfortable.
Now the best part the Food. If you are dreaming of Mexican, Italian, Barbecue, Mughlai or just Indian cuisine, you can expect nothing less than FIVE star quality and variety on the menu where your host Mr. Seth spares no expense to serve the most delicious and authentic food.
And that's where the FIVE star ends as the price per meal is nothing compared to the spread that is laid out for you.
We have been there with Family and Friends several times but were never disappointed.
Kindly note: You need to call in advance and make a reservation as the place is run and managed by the couple.
The concept of fast food do not exist here. As Mr. Seth make sure that he cooks everything fresh for you.
Hats off to Mr. Seth for keeping such a beautiful place for us.
