4 of us ie 2 couples travelled in the month of april 2011 to nainital. The best part about nainital is the huge lake around which the hill city is surrounded and the mall road which runs parellally along the lake.
The Grand is situated right in the middle of mall road, which makes it just a few minutes walk from the tibetian market and also the fact that mall road kept buzzing upto 10.30 pm at night, it was fun to just to walk down for shopping or to have a scoop of ice cream.
The view of lake from the hotel was simply amazing and it was all the more fun to sit down sipping a cuppa tea in the morning enjoying the serene beauty of the lake.
As it was right next to the lake we needed to just walk down the hotel to take a stroll along the lake or have a boating ride or sit comfortably enjoying the lakes beauty.
The staff and the manager were courteous and made all the efforts to make the stay comfortable and to guide u thru the site seeing.
The atmosphere at night was chilling, however heaters werent available, and we were offered hot water bottles.
We paid around 2500 odd per night for the room without lounge, however there were larger rooms also which contained a lounge and equivalent sized bedroom.
We didnt take food at the hotel, but just besides the grand is hotel nanak a multi cuisine restaurant which serves wonderful variety of chinese, fast food, punjabi, etc to name a few. The food was amazing and value for money.
