Royal house converted into a hotel, nice and cozy, large spacious rooms, lush green lawns and prompt service... awesome breakfast and the view is amazing. Order your breakfast and enjoy it while basking in the morning sun...

This was my 2nd stay here after a period of nearly 6 years but was pleased to stay there. The staff is very courteous n responsive. The rooms (super deluxe) are huge - largest being nearly 30 ft x 40 ft - bigger than many houses.

We were a group of 3 families n all of us had been here at the same time in 2006. the choice of stay was unanimous.

When we expressed desire for little less spicy food, they understood our requirement n quickly responded.

The grounds are amazingly large n the garden is maintained impeccably. The kids just loved it though it would have been better if there were more swings.

The upkeep could do with some improvements but the overall experience was still very satisfying. Definitely recommended for Nainital stay if you don't Essentially want to be on the mall.

If you like old heritage buildings with History, big gardens and good view of Himalayas ( you cant see the lake from here though), this is the place to visit. Its unknown, good value for money and comfortable.
If the management renovates the rooms to make them more comfortable, then i am sure it is going to be the best place to stay in Nainital. Room & food quality is a bit average, but they can do much more.
Overall i loved staying here .... and will recommend to friends.

We stayed at Balarampur house in Nainital for 3 nights. It's a small Heritage Property on the Hilltop with only 15 rooms. The rooms are big and comfortable. Service is decent and hotel staff is well trained. We did feel it's little pricey though. They have packages including Dinner and we found it acceptable, but nothing great. The view from the Hotel garden is very nice. The building structure is old but we didn't find any problems with that.

It's heritage property, with an old-world insouciance that harks back to a bygone era. A sprinkling of antique furniture, sepia photographs and gracious retainers make it a rather loving oddity. So if you are looking for something different among the new fangled lot of hotels in Nainital, here's the place. Large lawns, deep foliage of tall horse-chestnut trees and pots overflowing with outsided begonias and colourful fuschias give it a sense of space. Lounge on the greens or take a walk along cobbled paths up the hillsides, away from the traffic. Great home-style meals add to its charm.

Room Tip: Though there's a choice of being on the first or ground floor, all rooms are fine.

It was great experience. We stayed in a Super Deluxe room for 2 nights. Room was big and beautiful. Food and services were also pretty good. Our bed made noise but manageable. The bathroom is also very big and well maintained.

We liked their fruit custard and tea (readymade) very much.

Choose their Super Deluxe room only as Deluxe rooms are not that good.
