The stuff was friendly and the location of the guesthouse is very good.
If they would only invest into the rooms and do some repair work it would be much nicer. As we were staying in the winter it would have been expected to get some proper heating. Only a very small heater was provided which would only warm you up if you stayed in half a meter distance. We had some very cold nights! Door locks didn’t work properly. Water leaked everywhere in the bathroom. Towels were rather grey then white. The Terrasse where food is served was nice but we never found a properly clean table, rather the left over from everyone else breakfast. My complaint is probably from a European point of view. I talked to Indian guests who were happy with the standards.
Liked the location as you can see the whole lake from the room and the balcony. They have a lovely terrace where you can spend time. The staffs were very helpful.
The property is listed as 11km from Nailital and near Naini lake on booking.com but it is not in Nainital at all. Rather it is in a completely different location which is Bhimtal which is 27 kms from nainital and it takes more than an hour to reach Nainital from there. So, if you want to travel to Nainital then look else where. But if you want to stay at Bhimtal then it is a good choice.
Location is excellent. The view of the serene Bhimtaal Lake with the mountains as backdrop was awesome. The view from the terrace where the breakfast is served is fascinating. The manager & the staff are very polite & helpful.
The reception is a dilapidated makeshift room which gives a let-down feeling when you enter the hotel. The place is not at all well-kept. They have not made any effort to take advantage of the excellent location of the place. The kitchen is also similarly a makeshift, ramshackle place. The room assigned to us had no wardrobe. The cabinet below the mirror was extremely dirty. The room had a awful musty smell.
This property is situated at a beautiful location. The entry has a beautiful garden to welcome you. It appears a bit old but that's the beauty of the place. You are surrounded by beautiful plants full of flowers. The morning welcomes you with chirping birds and butterflies and cool breeze on you face. An ideal place for somebody looking to relax. You can move around the property. The USP is the balcony which offers beautiful view of the lake. The manager provided relaxing chairs for us to enjoy our drink there in evening.
Staff were really friendly and always helpful, the food here is really nice. The place it self is simple and homely but comfortable with a really nice lake view on the balcony.
With a stay at Lake Retreat Bhimtal in Nainital, just steps from Bhimtal Lake and Bhimtal Lake Aquarium. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Limited parking is available onsite.
