We stayed in Dolmaar Resort which is situated about 10 km from Kathgodam for a night while going to Bhimtaal.
It is very easy to locate as it is on the main highway. There is a small car parking and they helped us park the car.The view of the hills and valleys is wonderful.If you want to stay away from the noise and rush of the city and have your own vehicle to commute,then can stay here.
The staff is very sweet and friendly.
We had the big room facing the hills and the swimming pool.It was clean with fresh blankets and sheets.Electric kettle and water was provided .They were quick to refill the tea and coffee supplies.The washroom was clean.They told us that as their geysers were not working so gave us electric rod for heating water.
The room service was super prompt.Delicious breakfast that we ordered of stuffed parathas, coldcoffee and tea was served in the room within 10 mins as we had to leave early in the morning so diid not avail of the buffet.
Lovely roses were growing.Lots of birds singing could be heard all around.View of sun peeping through the hills was nice.It was nearing full moon so we sat on the swings and enjoyed the night view of the sky.
There is a badminton court and an open air swimming pool too but lots of leaves had fallen on it.
Only thing I would like to say as it is in forest area some black insects were in washroom and if something could be done about it.
The name of the Resort should be more prominently displayed in bright colors as we thought it was Dolmaar restaurant as that was the first board we saw.We stopped went inside to inquire and found it was the right place!!
Otherwise a nice place set in scenic surroundings. Can enjoy peace and quiet,nature's beauty comfortable stay at a reasonable cost.
We just stopped by to have breakfast on our way back. Food is above awesome! Luxury in budget. We regret not staying here. How could I skip such a lovely place on my hunt for accommodations!!! Will plan to visit again just to stay here in winters probably. Highly recommended!
Staff- Good hotel to stay, we had booked 3 swimming pool facing room. The staff was very co-operative & polite. The receptionist helped us to understand sight seeing at Nanital.
Rooms- Rooms are'nt clean, they are full of ants & mosquitoes (Being a hill station, these are common things which can be expected).
Food quality- Food quality was excellent.
I have visited this resort last week on 17th June with my family and relative family and book family room. The outside view,park ,swimming pool are excellent.Food is also very good and service boy are very co-operative i.e Sh Dinesh and others.I have plan for 2 days and extend for another days.The toilet are very dirty and need urgent action is require for modifications.The room is very spacious and size of TV is not match and correction require.
Sub: very bad experience with Cleartrip & Dolmaar Resort.
