One of the best properties , I have been to.. If you want a peaceful experience in a century old property .. This is the right choice . We had stayed in the nest. It has an amazing view . Food was really good and simple. The entire staff was very helpful and accomodating. Would love to come again some day, just for the experience .

Property not worth for such high cost. Booked room as per description available on booking.com but was shocked to see the extremely low ceiling of mezzanine floor which can only fit kids! Food is super expensive- just imagine rs. 300+ for 100gm of veg pakora or rs.400 for home made grilled sandwiches of 06 regular bread slice!!! And on top of all, even at this high cost you have to adhere to their timing, one don't have comfort of dining late while paying 3x cost. Breakfast is decided by them, menu was written on white board but items were not available. Staff was courteous to delete it when we asked for item. Had to drive for 1km for dinner and had very nice, customized menu at less than 50% cost. Seems this property is just to drill holes in guest pockets who ends up making reservations after looking at the photographs.

Namaskar!!! Thank you for sharing your review about your recent stay at the Bara Gethia, Nainital. We have researched your feedback and looked at each aspect which you have mentioned. The First things room is a nice split level room with a large double bed and a loft bed on the first level. It is meant for families with either additional accompanying adults or children. Many families simply low the setting and warm wood paneled ambience of the walls and ceiling. The skylight on the mezzanine floor gives the place an alpine chalet ambience. We realised that the room did not meet your requirement as yours was aparty of 04 adults and the loft section did not meet your requirements. A second room was shown to you which you did not want to take. As this was the first adverse feedback with regards to the the descriptor of the loft section, we will look out to see if there are more such instances which would necessitate a change of description. The breakfast menu is served buffet style and changes from day to day on the basis of ingredients and fresh produce available. There was one item erroneously placed on the board and our staff will be very careful in the future.Please also be rest assured that our menu prices are reasonable and aligned to prices you will find in hill stay homes of our standard and amenities. Thank you again for your feedback and we do apologise for the aspects where you felt we could have done better. We have already discussed with our team and positive learnings will be drawn. We will also look forward to welcome you back.

Situated about 30mins away from the crowds of main-town Nainital, this is a stunner of an old British bungalow converted into a homestay. Has just 12 rooms, each different from the other, set up artistically and tastefully. We stayed here for 4 days and the staff made us feel at home right from the time we got there. The manager, Suraj, and his team, are very hospitable and personally engaging. We stayed in the Valley room and had the most beautiful view from our bed itself, since the wall facing the valley is all made of glass. My mother has dietary restrictions and chef Shivam made lovely customised food for her for each of the meals. All of the staff also helped me plan the sweetest birthday surprise for my mother, all with flowers and a specially baked cake. Would definitely recommend this place to all those seeking solace, beautiful views, and an experience different from the typical hotel stays.
