This palatial and magnificent property is located on a slope and has good parking facilities. As soon as one enters the hotel, one is awestruck with the settings. Such a luxurious setting. Check In and check out is smooth and very fast. I would like to appreciate efforts of Ms. Lekden front office manager to helping during entire stay. Courteous staff and overall a great experience. The rooms are good too and Lake Facing. Indoor pool is neat and clean, crystal clear water. Rooms which offer a view of the Bhimtal Lake are great, Gardens are great too. Although, most holiday seekers like to visit in the summer months, I would recommend a stay here during the third/last week of September to enjoy the greenery, calm and peace. Lake facing and Garden rooms have decent sit outs. The food is excellent and finger licking. Thanks to Chef Vijender. When we visit Bhimtal next, I would love to put up the Mapple Hermitage for 3-4 days. .Purely on aesthetics, maple would easily be Bhimtal's best. Well located with a beautiful view all around.
