“Colonial home away from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

A well-maintained, clean and comfortable resort, tucked away in Mallital- Swiss Hotel is a lovely place to stay. It has large airy rooms, bathrooms that are really huge as they used to be in the old British buildings.

It is a quiet, peaceful place to stay, surrounded by beautiful gardens blooming with flowers. A 15 minute walk downhill takes you to the hub of Nainital, which is the quaint Tibetan Market next to the lake.

The cuisine, served in the rooms or in the charming dining room, is wholesome and delicious.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor are great. They are airy and have a wonderful feel.

This hotel is in an excellent location away from the maddening crowd in summers.a nice and quite environment with a lot of parking which is difficult to find in nainital.a small restaurant serves good food and the rooms are big and comfortable.the owners are educated and friendly people.

Room Tip: Some rooms are quite large. So do check a few rooms then decide.

It's a heritage building which the owner has converted to a hotel. So the number of rooms are limited but they are spacious and clean. We had booked two rooms and both were the front rooms where each room had 3 big windows. Our's was abig room having a seperate dressing room and a big bathroom which were clean. They have ample space for parking and playing for kids. Apart from the rooms they have set up sofa sets in the corridoors where you can relax.The food quality and taste is good but the only disadvantage is that they donot have a proper running resturant. So if you want to have food in that then you have to inform them 2 hrs before the meal and they prepare fresh stuff. The hotel is around a km away from the mall road so if you have a vehicle you can go by your car till mall road and park it there. At this end of the mall road a big car parking (charging Rs 50 for a day) is available.

The owner of the hotel is very helpful and courteous. We had booked the hotel through cleartrip but cleartrip did not transfer the money to the hotel account due to which our booking was cancelled without informing us. But when we reached there (with family) the owner was very courteous and was ready to help us.

Stopped here for a morning after getting the overnight train from Delhi. We arrived a bit bedraggled and the staff and owner made us feel very welcome and because of the freezing temperatures got a fire going in no time and we tucked into a hot hearty breakfast.

As this was a short stop we didn't see any of the rooms, the hotel is a short ride or brisk walk into Nanital.

There isn't anything wrong with the dogs, they were very relaxed, friendly and were not a problem and after all they are mountain guard dogs!!! The attached photo's should reassure those who are weary of dogs
