"Budget hotel with a great lake view"

Posted 26 Feb

We had a family room to ourselves overlooking the lake. Great view of the lake! Step out of the hotel and you have the lake in front of you. Decent reception. Service and food were good. Vehicle parking is a constraint though, best left to driver.

"Superb location & cooperative staff "

Posted 15 Jul, 2016

This is my second visit to Hotel Sarovar at tallital, location of hotel as usual superb, this time my room is royal deluxe room 002, interior of the room is mind blowing as you compared to other hotels of Nainital, where prices were too high and rooms are messy.. But here at hotel Sarovar all rooms are at very reasonable rate, big bathrooms spacious rooms facing Naini Jheel... Staff is good and cooperative thing are available in just one call... Highly recommended to all traveller once stay there, and feel the difference.

"Good place to stay & nice food"

Posted 2 Jun, 2016

Spacious place and cordial staff. Good food and location. Being on hilltop the mall road would be bit far so plan at lake area for the entire day. Then go up to KMVN for a pleasant night. Boating is a good experience here, 7 points sightseeing is not worthy but one have to as a time-pass, this will cost 800/- to 1000/- Mall road consist of lots of shopping option and restaurants. Naina Devi mandir, Gurdwara & Masjid adjacent to parking area is a additional benefit to tourists. Bhutia markets is a good place to get fashionable stuff in reasonable price.

"Excellent location & spacious rooms "

Posted 22 Feb, 2016

Situated opposite to Naini Lake, next to market and bus stand. Lovely breakfast. Spacious rooms. The food outside is not so good so have a sumptuous breakfast at the hotel. The dinner is also good at night because it is too cold to move out in December. Taxi for sightseeing is also available at the office.

"Best property & delight for budget travellers"

Posted 20 Dec, 2015

Though a bit stiff climb, but the view from lake facing room is awesome, specially at night when all the Mall road market lit up and reflections on the water makes it a sight to behold. I have visited this property numerous times with parents, with friends, with my own family and found it in good condition at all times. Good, clean and big sized rooms. Good staff and food. Rooms are very competitively priced. It is absolute delight for budget travellers like me.

"Decent staff and excellent hospitality"

Posted 23 Feb, 2015

We stayed there from 13/02/2015 to 17/02/2015. The weather was excellent and all facilities were available. Its advisable to select the Hotel by all who can climb steep road and some stairs. Otherwise the hotel is one of the best property in Nainital.

"Located near Mal road with nice staff behaviour"

Posted 11 Feb, 2015

My visit is only for full enjoyment with family and the journey was very nice. The tall look was very nice from my staying room. So I have taken more and more snaps. The hotel was located near to the Mall Road. I faced no problem to find this hotel. Behaviour of the staff members was nice. It was near to bus stand. The experience was good. It was a good stay in the hotel. Surroundings of the hotel was nice. The interior and exterior of the hotel was good. Overall the visit was very nice.

"Surroundings of the hotel were nice"

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

The experience was good. It was a good stay in the hotel. It was near to bus stand. Surroundings of the hotel were nice. The interior and exterior of the hotel was good. The staff were helpful, friendly and hygienic, they were quick to attend our requests. The room was spacious, neat, clean and well-maintained. All the amenities were in working condition. We had a lake view from the room. Check-in and check-out was done without any problem. The activities were not provided in the hotel. They didn’t organize a sightseeing trip. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers. The food was good with many varieties. It was reasonable.

"Recommendable hotel ; no activities "

Posted 26 Dec, 2014

Over all experience was good. Hotel was good. Location was good. It was in the main city. Appearance was good. Staff and service was good. Rooms were not that good and well maintained. Washrooms, bath rooms were good. There was a lake view. Amenities were working properly. Pick-up and drop was available. It was a honey moon trip. Food was not good. There were no activities. Sight seeing was arranged. Hotel was value for money and I would like to recommend this hotel to others.

"The best lakeside view"

Posted 5 Jul, 2013

We booked KMVN Tallital for our weekend trip after reading the travel reviews and were quite happy with the outcome. One of the good reasons you should book this hotel is that it offers the most beautiful lakeside view. The hotels on the Mall road have obstructed views to the Naini lake because of the trees surrounding the lake and the hustle and bustle of people and vehicles swaying to and fro beneath. KMVN on the other hand is perpendicular to the Mall road and its altitude helps offer the perfect view to the Naini lake. Provided you are willing to climb some extra steps to get to the upper floors of this resort, you are assured of the most scenic and uninterrupted lake view here. Its proximity to the bus stand also is a plus point. We reached the hotel at 9 AM in the morning, and in spite of the check-in timing being 12 Noon, the manager checked the availability and readily offered us our booking before time. Also, the next day we checked out our room at 12 Noon and the hotel management was helpful to offer us the cloakroom for keeping our luggage. We then went ahead for a lake tour and came back to the hotel by evening to collect our luggage and board the bus back home. The rooms are pretty clean, food is simple yet good and service is nice. The hotel has maintained a nice garden near its front office which adds charm to this place. The hotel staff is courteous. Considering the economically priced tariff, this place offers you a very nice and pleasurable stay.

"had booked with a little trepidation,was wondering..."

Posted 15 Nov, 2010

had booked with a little trepidation,was wondering if a govt run property would be well run.Was pleasantly surprised .The location is excellent. we stayed for 3 nights in the royal rooms and they were really royal.huge area with open balcony overlooking the lake, a dining table, a sit out bed, a swing in the rooms itself.The bathrooms were the size of a room itself.While booking for nainital ,some of the well known resorts which appear on the different sites look promising.But when you reach the destination, you would realise that staying closer to the lake is a good thing to do otherwise the climb back to your hotels would have you huffing and puffing like a train.The breakfast is basic but good nutritious stuff espacially when travelling with kids.The staff is reasonably helpful.Most importantly the hotel is barely 3-4 minutes from the mall yet very peaceful so you would get the best of both worlds.My comments are based on the stay in the royal rooms ,i will not comment on the other rooms in the resort.All in all ,a good experience which just reaffirms the fact that govt properties which usually have prime locations ,if well run will deliver a holiday at honest prices.

Posted 6 Dec, 2012

Nainital is a very beautiful place for tourists. This was my maiden visit to Nainital. The city is located just beside the Naini Lake which is a major tourist attraction especially in the evening time. People of Nainital are very kind hearted and helpful.

"KMVN-Sarovar Resort, Nainital (Tallital) Tourism..."

Posted 27 Oct, 2007

KMVN-Sarovar Resort, Nainital (Tallital) Tourism Development Corporation is taking great efforts in Kumaon and this resort is the jewel in the crown of KMVN. This is the best hotel managed by KMVN, though may not be the best hotel in Nainital. All rooms and the restaurant have a nice view of the Naini Lake. Sarovar resort at Tallital is a decent place to live, spend hours looking at the beautiful Naini Lake and enjoy the cool weather. Go for the super deluxe rooms, they are the value for money. Not as expensive as other elite resorts but luxurious indeed. Food, Room Services, Housekeeping etc. – Do not expect very great food, its average in variety but good enough to complain about. (You may go to nearby Elphinstone hotel for a change of taste, they’ll give you a nice veg & non-veg food.) The reception will not offer you a newspaper (although purchased for every room) till you demand. Hospitality industry is in a budding stage here. Activities – Boating in the naini lake at any hour of the day, morning walks around the lake, visiting various lakes in this ‘lake district’, enjoying a boat ride in ‘Sat Tal’ is more enjoyable than at Nainital. The ‘kadhi-chawal’ is a local treat after your boating. Tips for the travelers – - If you book a KMVN hotel at Nainital, do not go for the snow-view resort or another one of KMVN is the Sukha-Tal resort which doesn’t give lake-view. Insist on Sarovar & Sarovar only. People go for the ropeway ride to the snow point, its just a kids’ joy ride, except getting a panoramic view of the lake it doesn’t offer anything great. You end up spending 2 hours in going and coming back.

Posted 29 Aug, 2010

The hotel is good to stay during off season as the tarrif goes down. Bathrooms are clean and spacious, Room size is also satisfactory. However, during peak season, when you spend more money, it doesn\'t meet up the expectations.
