A perfect place to stay in Nainital, its the only hotel where u get the complete view of the lake and the whole area around. The Mall road market, Flats- each area is so accessilble. Also the bonus is its parking...

Room tip: all rooms are lake facing try to get the ones where the corridor ends...

Hi All,

I have been visiting Naintial and this hotel for the last 15 years. I must have sayed at this hotel atleast 7-8 times and want to keep coming back to it. It is the best way to see, feel, experience this beautiful hill station. The pros and cons below :

Pros
1) The hotel is right in the middle on Mall road with a beautiful uninterrupted view of the lake and mountains on all sides. Its go easy to go anywhere from here.
2) The Hotel itself has an old world charm to it. Rooms with huge celings. We stayed at the suite (their biggest room). Good bathroom size. Excellent facilities (importantly heater) in the room. Nice huge dinining table and an LCD tv.
3) One can just spead time having tea and sitting in the balcony enjoying the view. Particularly in the evening. So so relaxing.
4) The food at the hotel is just perfect. Homely and delicious. You need to pre-order and give them the exact time to serve. I know this is an old concept but it works wondefully. Have to try the simple north indian dishes here
5) They have a nice small parking lot. Considereing its on mall road its very useful.
6) Most of the staff at the hotel have been here for a long time. Dedicate. I can recall most of them by face everytime I visit the hotel.
7) The quality of crowd here is usually good. I know of other hotels on mall road that cant boast of the same. I know a lot of ppl who stay at "top hotel brands" in various cities come here regularly (they all skip Manu M or Arif Castle etc)
8) Its not at all expensive. I just hope the mgmt just keeps it at this level

Cons
1) Dont expect a huge lobby or a spa or things like that

So when in Nainital do stay at this place. Cant have a more relaxing holiday. Dont even look at the so called 5 star hotels for which you need to go up hill.

Happy Travelling,
Gautam

Amazingly located near the Naini Lake.
Very Courteous staff, presentable and well dressed. Only precaution you need to take is while checking out, since each and every member of the staff will stand in front of you for a bidding tip.
Hotel is Decently priced.
A good experience overall

The ambience of the Hotel is absolute delight with a touch of old Raj Era with lofty rooms with large corridors. The main attaraction is the lake which is visible in full view from the small Garden of the Hotel.You can actually spend the entire day just watching the activities in the lake.

If there ever was an exceptionally located hotel in Nainital untouched by the attempt to fleece in peak season this would be it. I was intrigued by the fact that this hotel only books direct and not through any travel sites as far as i know and thought we will take a chance on this one instead of staying in the typical granite floored chandelier lit hotels we have got so accustomed to. And was i pleasantly surprised. We were not expecting any state of the art rooms and nor did we get it but instead we got the old world charm high ceiling clean bathrooms with exceptional shower pressure to make the rooms doable. And in return for accepting the room we got the best location in Nainital with access to visit the mall at any time of day or night within 20 steps of walk precisely as our little one counted her steps. Took membership to naini club to use their restaurants which is a lovely setting for a drink under the moonlight by the lake!! And yes still at a stones throw from the hotel. So would strongly advise all those with small babies/young kids to give this hotel a try and it pays you back every Penny's worth rather than staying at top of the hills where the bigger more up-market chains are located. And i have not even gone into the details of the views from this hotel as that is for you to discover but yes this hotel is a steal!!For some reason the owners choose not to milk their property and we as guests are grateful that there is someone from the old world refusing to get commercialized and yet maintain a neat clean dignified place.
