This place was originally a YMCA hostel in 1925. A colonial era building built with stones and wood in a sprawling 2 acre plot. We stayed in room 100, the emperor suite with 2 rooms, this had old wooden floors and a wood paneled roof with some antique furniture. The corner suite was recently refurbished with a new bathroom and modular switches. The king size wrought iron bed with an 8 spring mattress and fine linen was very good. The best part was the stone floored veranda in the front with cane furniture overlooking the garden, mountains and the lake. Our dinner served in the veranda was also amply portioned and of reasonable quality. ( we opted for a meal plan with 2 meals ) The only quibbles were a dirty carpet in the room and a worn out bathroom mat, the ventilation fan in the bathroom was also very noisy. These are minor issues and easily solvable by the management. Overall a great experience , will visit again.
We, ten of us stayed in this hotel for two days.our package was inclusive of breakfast and dinner.It is a good property,it is old but maintained nicely keeping all ethnic furniture's and over all look in tact.
To reach in this property by walking is bit difficult for elderly persons,but must be enjoyable for young generations.Hotel management provide car service to its guests to go to mall and come back.
We enjoyed our stay there very much.
We visited Nainital recently. Stayed two nights at Hotel Chevron Fairhavens. The hotel is like a heritage building.Though We stayed at ground floor, there was no disturbance at all.Younger people should choose upper floor. The food & overall service is good.
We stayed at Room No. 301, on 2nd Floor for 4 nights with 2 kids. It has good view of the Lake. Size of the Room and Bathroom is good. There is wooden flooring. Overall stay was nice but not cost effective in view of the rate they charge. Their team is good and supportive. There was water problem on 2nd and 3rd day, but they provided hot and cold water in buckets. The hotel has a steep climb near Mall Road but they provide complimentary pick up and drop from the starting point of Mall Road from 9 AM to 8 PM. Breakfast and Dinner was good.
I stayed here for 2 nights and frankly did not enjoy my stay much.
Meals included in the package.
Few minutes walk away from mall road and Tibetan market.
Staff very polite and supportive.
Pickup & drop service to mall road was prompt.
Room heater was available.
Wooden flooring and ceilings were cranky and made lot of noise while walking, We could hear people walking in the room above us.
Water supply was biggest issue in this hotel, every guest was shouting in the mornings.
Phone extensions does not work in any room.
Road to the hotel is very very steep, and not at all easy to climb.
Lake view rooms have obstructed view of lake.
We were made to change our room twice. On day 1, we were allotted room no 303 but it was in bad shape so we asked for a room change. We stayed in room 305 thereafter on day 1. Next morning, there was no water supply in room and reception desk asked to use another room for bathing, etc...Then they further asked us to shift into room no. 210 for next day to avoid water supply issue. Overall, a bad experience as it was tough to pack again and again with two kids. Our plan was delayed due to this issue on both days.
Food buffet - Limited variety, fine taste.
Pickup/Drop - They provided pickup & drop to bada bazaar chowk, service was prompt.
Management seems to be fully aware of the issues with the property but no doing much to resolve.
Overall, hotel stay was not at all worth for the price we paid.
