Hotel Elphinstone is the perfect budget hotel to stay in Nainital. We stayed in the hotel in the month of May 2012 and were extremely satisfied with the overall experience. The hotel is right on the Mall Road on Tallital away from the hustle bustle of Mallital yet very near to the Tallital market and the rickshaw stand nearby. There is a boat jetty also right opposite the hotel. The hotel provided us 3 rooms facing the lake and the surrounding mountains and the rooms and the adjoining bathrooms were big and clean enough. The hotel though slightly higher up can be approached through multiple flights of stairs and ramps from the Mall Road and the ramps are easier for the elderly. The food served was good and had variety and was well suited for my kid of 4 years.The staff were also very friendly and helpful. I will visit this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: All lake facing rooms are good

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and simply loved the location. Services are average and some senior managers are really difficult to understrand, yet line staff is very nice and pleasant.

Housekeeping is very impressive but room service is really pathetic.

Location location and location is all this hotel have...can be run more professionally as potential is huge.

Room Tip: Always book the series start from 50 onwards a sthe views from the rooms are awesome.

i stayed here for only 1 night and it was worth staying here.The room and the bathroom were big enough.The hotel atmosphere was very good.The flowers outside the room were really beautiful.The location is at the starting of the Mall Road,it is also close to the lake entry from where you can get a boat.The hotel is cheap and homely.The parking and the service,both are good and well-organised.Overall,it is a pleasant hotel,recommended.

Room Tip: take the room with lake view

very good service. clean, nice and tidy. got the capability to become the best in class in its area with 24/7 hot water. nice and friendly staffs.
Advisable to prebook this hotel as it full almost all year round. parking is a bit of trouble with unavailability of enough space.
Bfast quality is pretty good considering the indian menu of Aloo ke paranthe.

for me the best rooms are the cheapest ones as they have the huge lawn balcony attached to them. here one can relax and enjoy the full panoramic view of the lake.

Room Tip: the lowest cost rooms with lawn facing the lake. btw all rooms face the lake.
