Secondly the food is very expensive. The spread of buffet breakfast is very unimpressive. There is a board which says that they have a 'bonfire...

I visited Nainital in first week of April'17 with a few friends and we decided to book a couple of rooms in Swiss Cottage. Without a doubt, it turned out to be a brilliant decision. Swiss Cottage is located near the High Court and the lake is at a walkable distance from the hotel. The rooms we booked were cozy,...

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
