We were four of us (two couples) travelling and reached late night at Nainital where all shops seem to be shut. However, we did not find it difficult to locate this place as it is next to bus stand. The ride up to the hotel is kind of an adventure considering its steep road but fun,
We stayed in superior cottages. We had got the last two rooms on the floor. Hence, we had the best lake view from our rooms (be it day or night). The rooms were clean. The heater is not sufficient to warm the entire room however it is not bad considering Indian standards. You just need to place it close to your bed. The bathing water is for 24/7. The hot water takes minimum of an 45-60mins for heating so they recommend you to keep the switch on throughout the day.
The hospitality is very good. Must say the people are very courteous. We enjoyed food be in veg- non veg. Thumbs up for the preparation.
The hotel has recreational activities like Mini-Golf which is at nominal charges.
The mall road where you can shop or indulge in street food is very close. If you take your car then there is a toll tax everytime you pass. We walked the entire stretch and it was fun.
The attractions like Zoo, Temple, Boating, Garden Caves, Dorothy Top can be accessed easily from this place.
We had wonderful time here and loved our morning tea/breakfast at the balcony outside our rooms. We definitely coming back to Nainital to explore places like Bheem tal and Ranikhet and will be staying in this same hotel.
