    I am going Nainital and my firm is paying for my stay there, as it is work related. My family would like to accompany me and I need to find them some good accommodation and would like to get a list of 3 star hotels in Nainital.

    A 3 star hotel I am guessing would not exceed the price of Rs2700 per night, so my budget should be within this.

    Overview

    The lovely hill station of Nainital is a favourite destination amongst nature lovers. With its salubrious climate, misty mountain views and serene lakes, Nainital is haven for tourists seeking some respite from the city life. Naturally, the main attraction of the hill station is the Naini Lake, from where it derived its name from. A simple boat ride amidst the lake or a stroll within its banks can take you to an oasis of calmness. While the centre of the hill station might be too commercialised already, you only need to venture outside of it to find tranquility that many tourists terribly need. In this guide, we would highlight some of the best three-star hotels in Nainital that won't cost you much but can give you a satisfying staying experience in the hill station.

The rooms aren't that spacious, but good enough for a solo traveller or a couple. Rooms mostly have wooden panelling, from the flooring, to the walls and up to the ceilings. The interiors are just basic, with one wall covered in decorative wallpaper and some framed paintings around for that homely touch. There's an on-site restaurant which serves pure vegetarian dishes from the Indian cuisine. Within a minute's walk from the property, you have some dining alternatives like the Punjabi Dhaba and Shivalik Restaurant. Being a budget property, facilities offered by the hotel are very limited like a travel desk and power backup.
