Stayed for four days in the Royal Room .The room is very spacious and luxurious .For Rs 3000/- per night double occupancy with breakfast it is a deal one can not afford to miss.The view of the lake from the rooms or from the huge courtyard in front of the rooms is a wonderful experience.Food is good though oily but when you order you can specify and they try to cook to your taste. The staff is very courteous. The rest house has executive, super deluxe and deluxe rooms it also has four bedded rooms .I have stayed their many times and it is my only choice in Nanital .For people who wish to drive themselves the last 200 m is a steep incline of around 45 degrees so one should be good hill driver and not allergic to driving in first gear.Usually the left half of the incline has cars parked and the other half is just sufficient for a suv to pass.the other issue is one has to climb stairs, royal double rooms are on ground floor for which one has to climb around 30 steps from where you can reach by car,for cheaper rooms more steps to climb. Dinning Hall is on the ground floor. Location is convenient just next to the bus stand and taxi stand people coming by train can take a cab from Kathgodam which will bring you straight to the rest house without having to enter Mall road. If one comes by bus a cab charges Rs 50/- to drop you to the rest house, if you do not wish to climb up.
