I travalled/ drove unplanned to Nainital on September with my wife and son (5) to Nainital. On arrival at 11pm, we got into Classic Taal Hotel on the bank of the Naini lake. We got cheated here with overpriced room with no balcony and no view of the lake.
The next morning, as we were scouting for better hotels, we bumped into somebody from Welcome Park, who took us in their car and showed us the rooms. We got season discount of 30-40% on the tariff.
The view from the rooms are excellent. Some of the rooms were moist and smell of stale air from carpet, etc. We however, got one which is fresh and nicely cleaned.
We checked out of Classic Taal immediately and checked into Welcome Park. The best part of this hotel is the view and the rooms are nicely wooden panelled with nice curtains, big flat LCD, diwan on the lake side of the room where you can enjoy the view lying down. The hotel though not on the Mall road, but it is just 1km away uphill from the Mall road. The hotel hwoever, compensated by providing drop and pick up facility from mall road to n fro the hotel.
**I would say the only hotel in the Mall Road with Parking facility.
We tried few items from the hotel restaurants and loved the food.
I would readily recommend anyone for this hotel.
