I liked this hotel only because of its great location. It's a budget hotel overlooking the Naini Lake. You can even see the boat pier right from the hotel's veranda. Upper level rooms offer clearer view of the lake. They have automatic lift which works alright.
Rooms are cozy and the linens were clean. However, water supply is very poor. There was no hot water in our bathroom though there were connection for hot and cold water. When we asked for hot water in the morning (around 7- 7:30 am) they provided a bucket of hot water which did not look clean.
Secondly, during our 2 days stay in the hotel I did not see anyone at the reception whenever we came down to ground floor. Since we went with travel agent they arrange meals for us so I have no idea about the hotel's food. In fact, I don't have much expectation from this hotel regarding food. If you are looking for a budget accommodation for a couple of nights this is a good place to stay in Nainital because of its strategic location on the Mall Road. All the restaurants, cafe, snacks stalls as well as shopping arcade are a stone's throw away from Shalimar Hotel.More
