stayed here for 2 nights. no other hotel on the mall road proides such a nice view of the lake. sit outside your room and enjoy the serenity of lake. the best part was the proximity of of good eating places , of boating counters, of the tibetan market, and obviously the centre of the mall. open space outside the rooms was something kids were waiting for. dont expect too luxury or facilities in the room. but it was a heaven as my kids requirements were easily met. good value for its price.

I got booking in a guest house but that was not very good. Fortunately walked into hotel GRAND and got a room on 1st floor with fab view of the revered Naini Lake. The balcony runs along the lakeside and my 1 yr old kid enjoyed the most by running here n there. It was really refreshing to sit in the balcony n have tea or drinks. It felt so good. Did not go anywhere, just relaxed myself in the balcony for two days before moving on to Corbett. Hotel staff is good. Hotel Menu does not have too much to offer but they serve tawa chapatti that is more homely.

This was our third stay at this property. My first was when I was 12 years old, my next trip to this property was with my two daughters and my wife and this last trip was with my daughters wife and mother.

Nothing to beat the charm of sitting out in the verandah and looking out a the lake. A "skoot" away from the boat club and a nice walk away from most of the "distractions" in Nainital.

Enjoy the simplicity and style of the "raj era". In my opinion, the only place to stay if you want to feel Nainital.

It is more like an old club . Newcomers are not exactly welcome because urban tourists' rowdiness is not considered trendy here . And the place is costly . And that makes it exclusive . Forget getting a room here on walk in basis as the rooms are almost always booked in advance by the old regulars or their references . One place where rooms are still booked by money order .Whoa ! WELCOME TO 1970 . But once you are back to 70's it feels like it was yesterday and it was so different . Good view of the lake . Decent , warm , cozy and quiet . Lovely balconies , make sure you ask for first floor . ....... i can spend the whole summer here but very costly .

I went to Nainital in November 2009 after a gap four years. Not much has changed about this place except that it has many new hotels but i preferred to stay at the Grand which is one of the oldest hotels and this one is from the British times. The architecture is great and it gives good view of the lake. They have their own parking which is not available at most of the hotels. They have good lawns with lot of greenery and flowers around. The rooms are good with separate sitting area attached to each room and a big common balcony which you have to share with other rooms. There are tables and chairs in balcony where you can relax with a drink or coffee on a cool evening. The main Tibetan market and Boat house Club are at a walking distance. The food is average but this does not matter as all other things are excellent about this property. This is a nice hotel to stay in Nainital but you have to book a room over the phone as it remains full most of the year.

It has a charm of old world with modernity. You never feel away from home. Best part was a huge balcony to laze around.
