Out of my 2 nights in Nainital, we spent one at Naini Retreat. Absolutely loved the property, great views of the lake and mountains. They lit a bonfire in the evening and served snacks around it. The food is super and they have a superb wifi which works around the property. Surely the best in Nainital- must visit.

The hostess at reception is so intimidating, right from the time we entered the hotel, we were made to feel unwelcome. A horrible live band in the evening made things even worse. There is no escape!! The only saving grace is the room which has a loft and a nice view to the landscaped court.

We had been to The Naini Retreat in Feb 2013 and stayed there for 4 nights and 5 days. The experience was out of the world and much above expectations. We didn’t had bookings in advance so visited few hotels in Nainital and finally stamped this one as our home for the next 4 days. We negotiated hard for their...

PROS- This was THE best hotel I've stayed in hands down. The views from here are terrific, especially the lakes and the mountains. The rooms were super comfortable and the food was awesome. The breakfast buffet had a really good range. We visited in December and this was the ONLY place in Nainital where we found snow, as the hotel...

Stayed there for three nights. One the most pleasant stays. The hotel is a heritage property, so it maintains the charm. The USP of the hotel is its courteous restaurant staff. Got a personalised service. I'd love to stay there again. However, a little bit of more polish here and there won't hurt the heritage.
