This was a good find, thanks to Tripadvisor reviews. The room we got was compact but had everything we needed: good view, clean bathroom, cable TV, hot water, heating and adequate supplies. Room service was prompt and so was housekeeping with supplies refilled without fail. The framed black & white prints of old Nainital made for a quaint decor. The...

The hotel is an exceptional place, with very nice rooms and excellent food. Even our Indian host family commented on the quality of the food. The staff is very available and accommodating. And the location, with super views of the lake and village from the room patios, is outstanding. I would recommend it highly to anyone.
