Reviewed October 10, 2013

As others have already said, and more will say soon, we were part of a large group in town for a significant anniversary. The Shervani Hilltop made what was going to be a fun trip into a great one. Service, attention to detail and good, old-fashioned smiling hospitality, coupled with the excellent breakfast spread, set each day off to the perfect start and the organization of each of our evening events was unobtrusively classy. Great place - would love to come back and stay again but since the gap between my last two visits was 40 years, it is unfortunately statistically improbable!

(Minor caveats - some rooms have limited wi-fi but given the multilevel layout of the rooms, I find it hard to complain too much as it worked fine almost everywhere. The shower can be a little temperamental but again, perched on a steep slope and with a complex layout, it's hard to be too critical.)

To celebrate our 40 th year of passing out of SEM - class of 73 batch reunion - 12 5 th year celebrations of SEM - we stayed here for 04 nights - the Shervani lodging comfort levels, service and food added to the flavour of our nostalgic get together. The staff from the GM, Chef to the serving staff has a "bend your back backwards" to serve - the guest is first !! We were going to visit our school - it was raining - the GM sent umbrellas to every room with a message to please carry the umbrellas with you !! This small gesture makes a huge impact - of being wanted and looked after. Highly recommended.

This is a Hotel I would like to stay at on every trip to Nainital. On my visits to Nainital, I must confess, this property keeps getting better and better. And the management is gracious and obliging.The landscaping is fantastic, gardens always impeccable, reception & housekeeping very responsive and the Hotel food and restaurant service just fantastic. In fact the Kababs (non-veg) at this hotel must qualifyas among the best in the country. And the breakfast always has some tasty and tempting delicacies like Channa Bhatura or Kachoris or Parathas that keep you sitting at the table asking for more. Leaving you with no option but wanting to Relax in the garden sunshine after breakfast. Few hotels in Nainital are as green and feel as spacious and have as modern and large luxuriously appointed rooms (still with a old world feel) and ample space. I think my next visit will be only a gastronomic one and I would like to taste all the chefs recommendations. Be mindful of the steep approach to the Hotel though.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and have their inherent advantages, new wing means having to walk a hundred yards...

We stayed at Shervani Hilltop recently as part of a large school reunion group, meeting with spouses in Nainital for St Joseph’s College’s 125th anniversary.

We were truly glad we stayed at Shervani. The hotel may not be as opulent as top large-city hotels, but has no less class. 3 or 4-star properties in smaller towns have an unfortunate tendency to put on a phony sense of ‘grandeur’, by over-decorating the property with things like chandeliers and carved ceilings. This hotel keeps it simple preferring good taste to razzmatazz: smart wood-paneled ceilings and floors, elegant spotlessly clean bathrooms, lovely landscaped gardens and flowerbeds…

The food is also very good. The breakfast buffet is a large spread – including made-to-order eggs and dosas. We had three evenings of cocktails and dinner, set up for our group of 25-odd in the hotel’s gardens. The quality of food was, again excellent, as was the desire to serve; the snacks kept coming till we had to jokingly turn the waiters away, and the spread thereafter was sumptuous (at a fraction of the cost that such a dinner may have cost in a Delhi or a Mumbai).

However more than the above, for me it was the service that made the difference. The staff is ever-smiling and eager to help. For instance, we called for fresh towels and they were with us in less than 3-4 minutes. This despite the undulating grounds of the fairly spread-out property.

Although a frequent traveler, I normally don’t get down to writing reviews. But after the delightful experience at Shervani, I felt I really must.
