“Nainital Lovely Place”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Nainital is my birth place, I recently had a chance to be a guest at the Retreat. It was a wonderful experience with a very cooperative and friendly staff to attend us at all time. The in house fountain and garden were great and gave us very picturesque photographs to click. Food was simple and well served making the dining experience again lovely.

Had stayed at Naini Retreat in the 1st week of March. Staff is very corteous and polite, especially the staff in the restaurant. The rooms though are a tad smaller than normal but still comfortable. One area where the hotel can work upon is the drop service for patrons after 7:00 p.m. as the front desk was not too clear regarding the same, although they arranged for one after some deliberation. Overall a good experience.

The in house fountain and garden were great and gave us very picturesque photographs to click. Food was simple and well served making the dining experience a moment to remember. The Hotel has a classic British touch to it with lots of plants, flowers and creepers that give the place a beautiful look. The stay was indeed a beautiful experience as the staff took care of all our little needs. We found it the best place to stay in Nanital.

I read a lot about Naini Retreat and therefore planned to stay here. This place is best for people looking for complete silence far from the crowd of Nainital itself as this Hotel is little away from the Mall road. Nice property indeed. Pick and drop service given by Hotel.

But i was not expecting a Tea/ cold drink in the welcome drink. There are various better options. The snacks that we ordered in the evening in our room were full of oil and were not up to mark. The dinner was also not of the level we have anticipated.

But to our utter surprise, we have absolutely fantastic breakfast in the morning. Everything from Dosa, ommlettes, etc was superb! May be the chef in morning was different.

But overall it was a nice experience. Very courteous staff.

They have indoor games. Enjoyed Table tennis.

Stayed on 7th March'12
