Me and my family stayed at Swiss Cottage during our visit to Nainital. Swiss cottage is approx 1-1.5km from the Mall road. So it away from the crowd and that is the good part. Rooms are neat but small and our room had no view. I requested for change of room but all the rooms were full at that time....
