We had booked 2 rooms with Swiss cottage after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately, the particular rooms that we had booked got allotted to some other travellers by mistake since the owner, Mr. Aayush, was out of town. We talked with him and expressed our displeasure with the rooms that were alloted to us. Immediately, Mr. Aayush gave us...

We stayed here in the second week of February. The place was cozy and beautiful. The rooms were okay. The manager Mr. Zafar was of good help while we were there. He and his team took good care of us during our stay. The food I think is a little over-priced and the distance from the Mall road makes access...

The place is awesome, we hired a family cottage and were more than satisfied with hospitality we got from the staff. The only pet friendly resort was very warm towards our pet and the service provided was as per expectation. The property is very well maintained and I look forward to visit again. Value for money experience

There were 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchen and 1 living cum dinning room with 1 balcony in a cottage. 1 bedroom has a single door window and other has none. So those are too much suffocating. At night if you are lucky, you can see rats in your bedrooms too and you can see flies, cockroaches in your bathrooms...

My wife and I decided on heading to the hills and Nainital sounded like a good decision to celebrate her b'day weekend. I had been in touch with Ayush and he assured me of a wonderful stay. Our train arrived from Delhi at Katkodham at 6:20am and we reached the cottage by 7am. Usually in hotels, check-in timings are strictly...
