Positive Reviews

Delightful service

The reviews suggest the staff here go the extra mile to ensure that guests are well taken care of. Outstanding service is professional yet friendly, and guests love the positive attitude of hotel staff.

Spellbinding views

Spectacular views can be enjoyed both day and night, with many guests lingering longer on the property than they anticipated. There are many places to sit outside and soak up the atmosphere while enjoying some of the best vantage points of Lake Nainital and the surrounding valley.

A comfortable stay

Guests don't seem to encounter any unwelcome surprises, with many commenting on the well-maintained condition of rooms and hotel grounds. Neat and tidy accommodation is a pleasure for guests to return to.

Negative Reviews

A steep climb

Expansive views are afforded by the hotel's hillside location, but along with the scenery comes a lot of stairs. The lack of a lift on site is a problem for many guests who find the stairs too steep.

Pricey food

Guests say that the hotel's kitchens serve tasty meals, but the price tag that comes with menu items can raise some eyebrows.

Difficult without a car

Those who choose not to drive to the hotel might regret their decision. While the property is peaceful and relaxing, guests report that there aren't many shops or restaurants within walking distance.
