1)The taxi ride from Nainital to Pangoot is very tiring and dangerous. 2)The rooms are pretty much okay but the rent for the room is too much. 3)The location is such that there aren't too many food options around the place and one has to make do with what the staff is able to provide; 4)Though the food is good...

It's not often you get a chance to get away from the maddening crowd of Delhi NCR and when you do, all you would prefer to get is a decent accommodation and nice weather. That's what you get at the nest. Have to say that in recent times I haven't had a better family vacation than this. This place is... More

The Nest is a small but comfortable spread of 9 cottages in the small village of Pangot, 15 kms away from Nainital. A cottage here means a large room with an open closet and attached bath with a verndah and outdoor seating. There was no TV in our rooms. Some cottages are a single storey while some have 2 independent... More

The cottages are standalone and remind of English novels with their slanting roofs & wooden interiors. The service is excellent; whatever we asked for, was arranged for us in a jiffy. The... More
