Reviewed 29 December 2008

Hello Friends,

I just came back from Nainital on 28th dec' 2008. I stayed in Hotel Ambassador for 2 days i.e. 26th Dec and 27th Dec and the experience was really good. We (my Parents and myself) reached Nainital on 26th Dec and searched few hotels however few of the hotels where we found vacant rooms were really expensive and other hotels were already booked. Luckily we get a room in Hotel Ambassador for 2 days (other vacant hotels have room available for only 1 day). The rates of Hotel Ambassador is reasonable (Rs 1400 for a Semi Deluxe Family room which has one Double bed and a sofa-cum-bed) with good quality service. We tried the snacks as well and that too was good. Overall its a good hotel which provide all the basic facilities like TV, Room Service. The room that we got was lake facing and the view from the room was good.

  • Liked — quality room service with lake view

Hello friends,
Last summer me alongwith my wife went to Nainital for our summer break. It was a memorable trip and we enjoyed a lot. We took the road route from Haridwar via Kashipur, to Kalighat and then reached Nainital finally. The route from Kalighat to Nainital is such that one feels in the lap of nature. The thing which amazed us on reaching Kalighat was that-- the route till kalighat from Haridwar is totally plain area but route from Kalighat to Nainital is totally hilly. The distance from kalighat to Nainital is just 30-40km but it took us almost an hour or more to reach Nainital. And on landing into Nainital one can feel the nature and can understand that why its one of the preferred destination for Honeymooners !!! On reaching Nainital we couldn't get a desired room and had to check in a hotel in which a room was available. The reason was that we reached there on saturday afternoon and it was all full (being weekend) !! You won't believe but its true. The same day we contacted Anamika Tours and Travels (On The Mall itself) and left for one night trip to Almore,Kausani,Ranikhet, the next morning by keeping our luggage in their clock room as we had checked out from the previous Hotel. It was a group tour. The reason for this short trip was dual. Firstly, no good hotel was available on that day and secondly, in this way we could see that places as well even though it was not in our schedule and everybody suggested that the day we will come back will be monday and by then plenty of rooms will be available. The said short trip was fantastic and we enjoyed a lot, specially at Kausani. Kausani is known for sun rise ponit but its climate, Mahatma Gandhi Ashram and the view of snow mounted hills is also one of the nice things about that place. We came back on Monday and after reaching Nainital we started search for a good hotel, obviously the one which is facing the lake !!! Finally,we got a room in Hotel Ambassador, just in front of the Naini lake and in the middle of the Mall. The Mall runs along the Naini lake and is the most happenning place in Nainital.
The Hotel charged rs.1200/- per knight and was excellent except onething that the room was on 3th floor and that too without a lift !!!!! But it was good in one way, because by the time one reaches the room he/she has already digested whatever you had while sightseeing on The Mall !! Anyways friends........ The hotel is good and as per our view, is located on one of the best location on The Mall - just in the middle of the Mall. The staff is good. But as they are on contract (seasonal labour) as such they are not like the permanent staff i.e professionals. But still it was good. The room was nice and cozy, well lit and equipped with TV as well, Bathroom was excellent with Hotwater all the time around. The best thing about the room was that being on 3rd floor the view of the lake was excellent. All the rooms in this Hotel are lake facing and the room rent is reasonable. They charge from Rs.1000 to 3500 depending on the lcoation of the room and ofcourse your bargain power !! Yes bargain is must but only if you have second option of room in other hotel in your hand !!!!
Friends, what we have learnt from our trip is plan your travel in advance, book your Hotels in advance and secondly don't plan your visit to any Holiday destination at weekends as localites and even people from nearby places visit that particular place on those days. Last but not the least, in the case of Nainital don't go without a driver if you are going in your vehicle as theres' a lot of problem with parking place and moreover, whatever parking is available is at a far off distance. So one has to park his/her vehicle far away and leave it at the mercy of the parking contractor.
Well friends I hope you would like this review regarding the place as well as the Hotel and it will be useful to you in some way or the other, if not much.

Thanks

That was an amazing experience to stay in that hotel for 3 days
Full lake view , with Tiffin top in front of it and chilly winds passing by makes it the most happening place to stay in Nainital
Hotel in which you need to climp up 56 odd stairs to reach to your room but it all seems worthy when they use to have born fire during the night under the crystal clear sky with a little Samba music on.
a perfect place to enjoy.
rooms are in their best of conditions with all feasible luxuries a room can have, a spacious bathroom with a hot water tub to relax your body out.
Simply out of the wortld experience and that too in affordable price.
