The best part is, its very close to Naini lake and if you love to walk, take a short connection from hotel to Naini lake (just 500 mtr away). Otherwise you can also avail their free pickup and drop facility to/from hotel to Naini lake. The rooms are cozy and the restaurant along with the garden area are just awesome...!!!
