“Superb Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2010

It is a beautiful built property with EXCELLENT services and staff.
It has all the modern amenties. We reached naintal when it was raining heavely.
There was no light in nainital, but Arif castle had all the proper gen-set arrangements.
Right from the entrance(durban), reception, games room, gym, restaurant everyone was courteous.
Food was also EXCELLENT.
They also provided free shuttle services from hotel to mall road any time of day.

Not one of the best places to stay in Nainital. The staff is not motivated to serve and is very casual. Food quality is not upto the mark. We could hear atleast three to four couples in out two day stay having an argument over the services of the hotel. Overall it was a big disappointment. Avoid it till you have no other choice.

that is the feel . comfortable and trendy just like a city hotel right at 6000 feet . brisk activity . brightly lit . no laid back feel . glamorous lobby . But grossly lacking on huge open spaces which should come free in hill stations to my types . Designed to promote tourism in nainital because after breakfast you have a very strong urge to go out to the mall or " where ever " as there is nothing like just sitting back and relaxing in the hotel itself .... and come back only at / after dinner . Good as a base station for day trips . Good , long walk back from the mall ... not for elderly . And yes , no great view .
