     Rated : 5.0

    I loved the hotel ambiance. Nainital is a beautiful city in itself with lush green surroundings. The view of the Naini River from the room was breathtaking. We loved our accommodation and I would highly recommend to try Mughlai cuisine at the resort. Would definitely recommend it and booking it online through Thrillophilia has given us the best deals with the affordable price.
