Reviewed June 28, 2013

The place is 4kms from the state highway on a Kacha Road, which really breaks your body. So be prepared to for uncomfortable travel. View is OK. The room we stayed in was spacious clean and with good view. The other rooms especially suites are little Damp and dark. Service is excellent and very fast , food in lunch and breakfast is good. Over all a good place if you are ready to travel a little in discomfort.

Room Tip: Be ready to travel 4 km on single Kacha Road. Also select room carefully as Suites are very dark a...

I stayed here in may and it was definitely not a good experience...the road to enter the resort is uphill 3 kms and the way is really narrow and the road itself is really bad...Dont know why someone would make a hotel here? Food is decent but the hotel staff is strict about timings...No breakfast after 11 am , dinner last order by 10.30...the rooms do not have AC and the fan in my room was not working... My tyres got punctured twice on the road to enter this hotel.... Service is average.. Very hard to travel at night ...There si no 24 hr room service and the swimming pool water was very dirty , you cannot swim in it

the location is terrible due to the approach road..its risky and freaky..after going up we only came down once..the property is very average..got totally screwed by the "Club group of hotels" who offered 5 start treatment. This is not even worth 2.5 star..there are not much facilities at the so called resort..they do not offer any services to go down to the main town area or anything..its too secluded where it is and there are no views really of the lake or anything..disappointing place to be with family and kids..if u have a big group and plan and outing then u can choose this..

frankly because of the experience that was promised and what we got this is a 3rd class place,..and they charge too high for what its worth..

only plus was the FOOD..great food..the cook is too good and make lip smacking food.

Room Tip: there are other better options..keep this one as lat choice..i rather stay in nainital and come down...

Mountain Club is an amazing property in a very posh locality called June Estate in Bhimtal. Bhimtal is around 15kms from Nainital in Uttarakhand state in India. The USP of this resort is its presence amidst the long and beautiful oak trees. Although the approach road is a bit rocky and steep but it pays off in the end. The rooms are well appointed and clean and the hospitality is warm. This makes it a must visit resort in Bhimtal. I would suugest you to take a trip to this amazing place overviewing the Himalayas.

This is nice place for someone looking for bieng away from the hustle and bustle of Nainital, but still within close access to it. In terms of the room, we stayed in one of the newer ones, so they were good. It's not a super-professional star property kind of place, but more a homely and friendly place.The food was very good, and they also had good game options (table tennis, badminton, ludo, chess, etc), and they had good entertainment for kids in the evening, and a couple of guys who played very good acoustic guitar for an evening bonfire. Overall, a good experience.

I stayed in this resort on august 21 & 22nd 2012 and enjoyed every moment. I have seen the other reviews and to say the least I am surprised. May be they got bad rooms, don't blame them for the review. I stayed in room no.312 which was very spacious for a couple and it had an adjoining room if you have children. The views from the bay windows were amazing both morning and night. Even in august the weather was cool and you had to use blankets. The sheets were clean, pillows soft, Bathroom with good fittings with hot and cold water, wooden flooring and ceiling et al. So what is there to crib about? The food served in the room quickly (waiter Kishen) was delicious and reasonably priced. We took a taxi arranged by the hotel at Rs.800/- for the full day with a local driver who also acted as a guide and visited Bhimtal lake, Naukuchia tal lake, sattal lake, Nal Damayanti talab etc. We had a lovely boating experience in Naukuchia tal for Rs.200/ for One hour with the boatman regaling us with jokes and stories. In all the places there was abundance of photographic opportunities. As we had a taxi with the driver knowing the way, shopping of exotic honey, pickles, kumoani dal, and clothes was easy and cheap. We skipped the butterfly museum as it exhorbitantly priced at Rs.200/ per person and the osho meditation camp resort was closed and hence no go there.
Service both at the reception and room service were friendly and quick and food sumptuos. Do not stinge on tips and tip a small sum say Rs. 20/ after every meal and breakfast and you will find the next meal great. I have kept this habit in all my trips with rewarding experiences.

If you are from Delhi or Gurgaon, do not forget to pick up vegetables from Haldwani on return journey as they are 1/10th price of Delhi / Gurgaon.

Again do not forget to order with every meal Kumoani raita which is made with laced ginger and is an experience apart from Kumoani Dal.

Enjoy your rest and do not look for faults.

Room Tip: Take a room on the first floor facing towards the mountains having large 4 combined bay windows. I s...
