“Memorable Holiday”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This was our first visit to Nainital. We had booked into Hotel Shervani and had opted for the Premium rooms. The property is very good and well maintained. Food is very good. The hotel had arranged for live Karaoke singing in the evenings so we could enjoy the climate and the food listening to old ever-green Hindi film songs. Some of the guests even danced to the songs. Buffet breakfast was very good. Staff were very courteous. Room service was good. Our room had a private garden in the front which was very lovely. The best part about the hotel is the shuttle service that they arrange to and from the Mall road which is complimentary. Since the resort is a little away (about 3kms) from the Mall road, this is very useful to the guests. The resort also arranges for a nature walk called Himalay Darshan that is complimentary. The front desk people are very helpful. There is a map in the lobby which shows the location of the resort in Nainital and the places for sight-seeing around it. The lobby executive clearly explained the best way to cover all the places. For those who love flowers, this resort is the best place to be. They have a well tended garden and there are roses everywhere in the resort. Since the resort is located at a higher level, it is far from the sounds of the city and makes us enjoy the sounds of nature at peace. Overall we had a very good experience and enjoyed our stay of 2N 3D at Shervani Hilltop, Nainital.

Room Tip: Some premium rooms are located 2 levels lower than other rooms. There is no lift facility, and guest...

On a very short notice went with family to Shervani Hilltop Nainital,OH,what an experience,
Right from the Gate to Front ofice to Room,it was so homely and courteous.
Rooms well managed,ample space for Kids to play,evening so warm with Karaoke and different extravaganza every day,made the stay exotic.
All the staffs under leadership of the General Manager, took personal care of all of us.Food in the Hotel was excellent. Travelled most part of globe,but this experience will be longed and cherished.Will visit again and again.

Beautiful surroundings and a must stay in Nainital.

Stayed from 1st May 2012 to 5th May 2012 on my honeymoon. Had booked through cleartrip.com for a deluxe room. Got a free upgrade to suite room on arrival. Check-in process was easy, faced no issues.Was provided with complimentary fruits on arrival.

Property in tastefully done and well maintained. Since my room was closer to kitchen, during lunch and dinner time exhaust from kitchen would fill the room, making it smelly.

Buffet breakfast and dinner was delicious and sumptuous. Live menu was a treat and chef was always eager to interacted with all the guest for feedback.Be advised though that a bottle of 300ml coke or pepsi cost 99rs inclusive of all taxes ;)

Just a suggestion that TVs should be upgraded to LCD's to match the decor.

Overall had an awesome stay at Shervani Hilltop, really awesome property.

Room Tip: Suites room are big and spacious.

Just got back from a memorable 5 days/4 nights family holiday at The Shervani Hilltop, in the last week of May,2012. We take this oppurtunity to thank the entire team at Shervani headed by their very courteous & experienced General Manager, Mr. Gopal. We were 6 people...in-laws (that’s 2 senior citizens), kids (2 toddlers aged 3 & 1 yr), husband & myself. Shervani had something for all of us.
1. For kids: The Hotel organizes puppet shows, magic shows & some games in the evenings. There is an Activity Room for older kids & a Toddlers Room for the little ones. They also provided us kids/ baby food on request such as khichdi, moong dal, alu-parantha, plain dahi, etc. They also provided warm milk for the little one 3-4 times a day, upon request. There is a lovely garden with lots of swings for kids to play while the adults hang around the lotus-fountain.
2. For Adults & seniors: Plenty of landscaped place to walk around. The property is very well-maintained.There are a few steps everywhere, but nothing which are too tedious. Don’t bring a baby pram for moving about the property. The daytime is quieter since a lot of people go out for sight-seeing, so you can enjoy a good book or just laze around in the lawns under umbrellad-tables. The evenings are lively with tambola & live music, which deserves a special mention. The singer, Veeru, is extremely talented & sings some beautiful ghazals as well as old bollywood numbers. The music goes on beyond 10pm, which may cause disturbance to some. So choose a room not close to this area, if you don’t wish to be disturbed. We didn’t try the bar, but it looked inviting & well-stocked. We didn’t try the live bar-be-que either (since we had dinner buffet included in our package) but that looked delicious too. Maybe you could include that in your package deal for one night.
3. The cuisine: The buffet breakfast is par excellence. A very good fare of north & south Indian & continental stuff every morning. There is always a live counter at breakfast (like dosas, besan chilla or eggs) & at dinner (like noodles, tawa vegetables or pasta). Dinner buffet is lavish with veg & non-veg dishes, soup, salads, 2 types of main course & desserts. Very good service even during peak hours. A suggestion: eat when everybody else is busy with tambola or games or drinks ...the buffet & the service is best when it opens...8am & 8pm. Upon request, they gave us a packed dinner for our train journey on the last day. The lunch was a la carte for us...it was Ok-Ok...depends upon what you order. Be careful: they may not have tava rotis when you want since they generally open only the tandoor for rotis.
4. The staff, service & hospitality: is very good & commendable for peak-season (the Hotel was packed). The house-keeping & room service are obliging. The bathrooms are good & well-stocked just in case you forget to bring something or prefer to use their toiletries. (But no talcum powder was provided). The water was nice & hot whenever needed. The hotel provides drop & pick service to a fixed point on the mall road, which is a very convenient thing. A special mention for the General Manager who helped us with early check-in & late check-out since we had kids & seniors with us.
5. The rooms: We had 2 rooms. There is no category of room which is best or worse. Each has a plus & a minus. The room may be big, but maybe close to the live music area/games area. The suite may be big too, but the room maybe windowless while the living room will have a window. (Plus, a lot of steps lead to the suite). Similarly, the room may open out into a terrace area where you can have morning tea with the mountains, but then again these rooms maybe too sunny during day. Some rooms may not have a mini fridge while some may not have a ceiling fan (required during peak summer days). So, there is no special room tip. Just choose what suits your needs. Strangely, windows of all rooms open into the hotel & not towards the mountains. (I am not sure why, but there must be a good reason). This was noticed & not liked by lot of guests.

Overall, a very good stay. Highly recommend place. Hope the Hotel keeps up the good work and its standards.

Room Tip: Ask the General Manager or his reservation team over phone before booking. Tell them your requiremen...

We had stayed in the "Shervani Hilltop" on the occasion of our First Wedding Anniversary (29th - 30th May 2011) and had an amazing experience.

The Shervani Hill top is a beautiful garden resort located in the heart of Nainital. The landscape is just awesome. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Service is excellent and the staff is very courteous and prompt. The evenings are lit up by the BBQ and live melodious songs by a talented young singer. The lawn in front of the Courtyard Bar is a great place to relax. The Breakfast and Dinner buffet is worth mentioning - delicious, plenty of variety, and good quality.

The experience of staying at this resort can be summed up as rejuvenating and peaceful. If you are not looking to be right in the middle of the rush of the mall road, then this the place to be. Its a most recommended place to stay in Nainital & I hope to visit this place again.
