If you're looking for a place to stay right on the lake, this is it. Go no further. The Classic Hotel is right on the Mall, overlooking the Nainital Lake and would be my first choice in this hill station.
The rooms are large, most are lake-facing and thanks to the balcony, the view is excellent. Our favourite time was in the morning, having breakfast on the balcony, looking over the lake and watching the sleepy hill town come to life.
Dont expect luxuries such as a mini bar or even a fridge (why would you need a fridge anyway?). But the service is prompt and efficient, the food is acceptable and the place is most importantly- clean.
One gripe I did have though- the hot water runs for just a few hours in the morning. And if you'd like to shower in the evening- after a longish road trip, you'd need to ask for buckets of hot water (which are chargeable by the way).
Apart from that, its excellent value for money and a prime location to start your exploration of Nainital.More
