“Nainital's best , Pahadi Food .. bt don book it in wedding season:(”
So, let’s start with what’s good.. It goes without saying, with such a brilliant view of Lake Naini, the location of The Manu Maharani is certainly top notch! It’s even close to the local mall, very creatively named “The Mall” ;-)
The journey started from New Delhi & thanks to Antilog Vacations for giving us a cheap package to Manu Maharani .They took care of travel , stay , local sightseeing etc & the arrangements while made the same stuff cheaper for us but also convenient.Booking was made online from their website.
I stayed here for about 5 Days and had a ball in the lake facing rooms and had a ball of a time. The rooms were nice & big. The interiors were plush, I think the waiter mentioned that this place was redesigned in 2006, when a lot of the current interiors and systems were installed. Considering this was 6 years back, the rooms look great and have great ventilation for someone like me who likes the windows open rather than switching on the A.C.
Anyway, back to the hotel, so the choice of food is slightly limited in diversity, i.e. they serve mostly North & South Indian food, but there’s a huge variety within that itself. A lot of the food I ate was completely new to me, but the chefs and waiters were kind enough to explain every meal before I ordered and tailored it to my taste.. that being a little low on the spices.. Just FYI: they also have a roof top restaurant that’s great for the evenings.
Now a bit of the bad.. During my duration, I remember at least two nights when functions being held in nearby places carried on till late in the night with blaring music and there was nothing that the hotel could do about it. So, even though it’s not the hotel’s fault, it really does get annoying. Then there’s the question of was it worth the money, well, not exactly, but I wouldn’t call it an issue either. All I’m saying is that they could drop their rates a bit if they want people to stay longer.
Nice place though, I wouldn’t mind recommending it to friends and family.Great Job by Antilog Vacations as well for suggesting us this property
