“Just another hotel”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Been there last weekend, nothing expecptional beside the location. Food was just below average , paneer was sour. Best thing was atleast they straightway changed it but waiter argued that that's how there food is.
Well guys we all are very aware of the difference between good and awful food quality so don't try to befool guest.

Room was decent but too overly priced for off season and noise was all around and staff was yelling at top of their noises while talking or calling each other.

Guys just be considerate of guest staying in your hotel.

The Hotel is situated at Mall road. The Hotel staff was good, food quality was also good but little bit at higher prices. Staff was always ready to help. Nice location with nice people. All rooms are facing towards lake hence it will be really awesome place for anybody.

Room Tip: Though all Rooms are facing towards lake but on 3rd or 4th floor rooms are better as compared to bel...

Excellent Location, view and beautiful rooms. I stayed in this in Hotel during my honeymoon and would never forget the service I had received here. Located right on the Mall road and very near to the Famous Naini Lake. The rooms are beautiful and have a great view of the naini lake. You can enjoy sitting in the balcony surrounded by mountains. Rooms are comparatively small but cozy. Toilets were clean and the linen was maintained very hygienically. Food is average. Overall, this is the best place to stay while you are in Nainital...

Very good location, excellent view, outstanding restaurant, small pricey rooms. Ideally located on the main Naini lake, close to market and naini temple. View from the hotel is outstanding . Early morning and night standing at the balcony enjoying the lake and mountains - wonderful experience. Rooms are small and the rates are on the higher side - that's the cost of a prime location.
