KMVN Tourist Rest House Tallital

Reviewed June 11, 2014

After reading reviews in Trip Advisor, I decided to go for this property, as it’s located at an ideal spot. However, after climbing unending stairs and check in, I found the rooms in a dismal condition. The super-deluxe room was in a pathetic state. Clearly, the government run hotel apathy was visible in its details. The room was hardly painted for years, the door paint was peeling off, and false ceiling was coming off, dirty balcony, torn bed sheet, old worn-out furniture, bed mattress not in sink with the bed. Even the view from the balcony was blocked by a huge tree in front of the hotel. However, the silver lining was the restaurant food was good and reasonably priced and staff was courteous, though their response time was a bit slow. The bottom-line is this hotel is not its money’s worth.

Room Tip: Take the top floor room on extreme left, since the view of lake is blocked by a huge tree in front o...

We stayed in this Rest house from 7th June in the Royal double room and guys, I must tell u that this is absolute value for money...The Royal rooms are simply not less than any suite of a 4 star property...The cook of this property is so humble & skilled..The homemade food without any oil & spices actually make this a perfect holiday..Only thing that cud have been better is breakfast in the morning, which does not have more than 2 options...Anywaz, it's alright as you end up eating according to your appetite only..The room rent is 5k INR per night & I can guarantee that in this rate you cannot get a better property in the entire Nainital..The view from the hotel room is simply breathtaking & in the evening, you actually prefer to have your dinner or tea in the out area front of your room. The hotel staff is very courteous & they actually treat you as their valued customer..100 on 100 to this property...Prefer to go for Royal room..

KMNV Tallital hotel are really good. Hotel rooms are spacious. Food (specially breakfast) is good. Hospitality is good. Location is good. Overall its value for money.

Also I had to cancel part of my booking in KMVN hotels (5 hotels all together) as few family members fell ill. A person named Mahesh from KMVN helped us a lot. Everytime he attended my calls even in odd hours. I received the refund payment timely.

Room Tip: Lake facing rooms are better. Top rooms are good as view is better.

Location wise it is an excellent place. We were 4 and we took 4 bedded room. View of the lake from the room was fantastic. Staff of the Hotel is very well trained and quality of food is very good. One caution for tourists having knee problem............stairs to reach the reception and further to the rooms may be problem for anyone.

Room Tip: Higher floors give better lake view

As the title says, this KMVN guest house is located on one of the best possible spots of Nainital.
We stayed here on April 10-11, 2014 and it was indeed a memorable stay. The view from the room is awesome, you can see the entire Nainital town and the lake in one view. It is in fact a great "value for money" place to stay. The buffet breakfast was very good as well. The staff is local and they help you in whatever you want.

I would recommend greatly recommend this hotel to anybody who wants to enjoy not only Nainital but want to enjoy their stay there as well.

Best Hotel near the lake. I have been with my family in 15th April 2014 to 18th April - 2014 & selected Royal D'bed Lake view room. The management is very committed for services, 10/10 marks for cleanliness, food quality and quantity. Food like a Home food. Hotel manager and staff specially take interest in guest services and comfort. 100% recommended. The Bar is very good and they serve the Local Food & Snacks which is you never find in Nainital.

Room Tip: Go for Only 2 / 4 bad Royal Rooms
