Tucked away within the Kumaon hills, with magical forests echoing the songs of hundreds of colourful birds and little trails that disappear into sunlit glades, that's Pangot for you. A birdwatcher's paradise, Pangot is 12 kms from Nainital and the drive is through the bird habitats of China Peak range forests via Snow View Point and Kilbury

Powered by AI

Nestled in a serene setting surrounded by forests and a waterfall, The Nest Cottages are often celebrated for their tranquil atmosphere, complete with live music and delightful food experiences. While the location is picturesque and handy for local attractions, occasional power outages have been a concern. Guests commend the attentive and warm staff, although peak times have exposed some service hiccups. Room cleanliness is widely applauded, yet maintenance issues like faulty lighting have been noted. Lastly, opinions on value and event pricing are mixed, with some questioning managerial oversight.

I recent stayed at "The Nest Cottages" and the experience was excellent. Staff was polite, humble and experienced. We were accompanied by one of the staff members to our room and was given information about all the facilities and amenities the room has in a very professional way. The room was neat, clean and spacious. The architecture was amazing. The personal fire place was an advantage and I simply loved it. You get an excellent view from your room which is worth mentioning. We stayed for 4 days and the hotel staff made sure that our trip was worth remembering.
Delicious food was served and the housekeeping staff was well mannered.
Overall experience was spectacular. Would visit again, soon!

Amazing views, peaceful, finger licking food, best hospitality .. and the list of reasons to like this place goes on.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in nest cottages here, best views in pangot, generously spacious rooms with all city amenities, owner and the staff is very friendly, they never said no to anything and are always eager to please.

I hate most popular hillstations since they have lost their authenticity, are heavily commercialized, expensive, crowded, littered with trash etc. As a nature lover, we loved Pangot, a small piece of heaven near nainital. Amazing views and full of nature untouched by humans to enjoy nearby.

Am definitely coming back in winters to enjoy snow

I am a frequent traveller and have covered most parts of Uttarakhand and Himachal in the last 15 years .The recent trend of homestays and boutique resorts has made our choices wide open . When you visit Himalayas you leave your city life behind and blend your senses with the fragrance of the mountains.
Recently we stole one working day from our routine and took the opportunity of the long weekend during Gandhi Jayanti. This time the destination was Kumaon region – a picturesque resort called NEST in Pangot .Though I am not very good at wiring reviews, this one was special and needs a mention .
There was nothing – absolutely nothing but nature in and around Pangot . Nainital and other popular places are with in one hour of driving distance but if you want your trip to be tranquil and peaceful you can give that a miss .
Tranquility was available in abundance in Nest .You will wake up to the chirping of birds. This is one of the finest resorts I have visited in the region . The morning sun will greet you with grace . A beautiful sunny day will suddenly change into mists and clouds . You can even smell and touch the clouds as they will slowly wrap you up .
Services were prompt and with a smiling face . Food at every meal was awesome and had a wide spread . Even the items which were not there in the regular menu was supplied at personal request .
The area has no airtel network but the cottage has a superfast wifi network to compensate for that . Being a bit remote location there were few incidents of power cuts but that was suitably supported by back up power systems . The manager Vicky is an amiable person who is always available for help .
When you visit such places, it is not to enjoy the luxuries of a five star hotel but to enjoy in the lap of nature. You really have to try hard to find anything to complain about in this place . A must visit place for people looking for serenity and peace , far away from the hustle and bustle of life.

To go on any holiday, it takes lot of planning and most key element of any holiday is the place to stay. Despite lot of work or due to work, it took lot of effort to plan this holiday and to go on holiday. But ever in past or I think in future also, experience will not be so disappointing that we decided to take 8 hour journey very next. It was difficult to even stay in this hotel for more than one night. Reasons:
Room – It was very small room and one floor / mezzanine is created by cutting height of room with wood board. And 2 single mattresses are kept on floor to create place for sleeping of 2 more pax. And n effort has been made to even cover the board, it was just raw board and mattresses were on floor. They did not put any effort to put sone dari before placing these mattresses on floor. Not even a basic furniture like side table, lamp etc. So, room was small horizontally and vertically both.
Heat – As it had fireplace, they decided to not give place to plug heater. And it was staff’s choice when they will light fire, even if you are feeling cold fire can be lit only in evening. And even when we were leaving, our request was denied. You cannot find a bit of logic or any hospitability in staff. If heater would have been there, anyone can switch on as per their convenience.

awesome location, perfectly neat and clean, excellent food(continental, chinese cuisines were unexpectedly awesome taste wise), house keeping was too good and very humble and excellent hosting by the staff.....
only issue is with the availability of hot water and room heating system. Cottage 1 and 2 have fire place as the only source of heat inside the room that too can be lit only after 7pm and the wood resources they provide gets extinct within 2 hours. In the biting cold days in the month of Jan 2021, where temperature was in between 0 degree to 4 degree Centigrade it was really shocking and very much painful to adjust oneself in such low temperature without proper heating system. Even there was no running hot water in bathroom taps, one has to call the reception and ask for hot water, when some boiler and pump was switched on, still steaming hot water was not available .Overall it would be a very nice stay during summer months, but I would not recommend a stay in extremely cold winter months

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We appreciate for our property for your stay. We understand the cold weather experience, there are certain challenges on hills. Our water heating system is centralised for better managed coz of less electricity and we cant put geyser on each cottage. Govt supply has given only one transformer for entire area so we have to go with the system. This is why we have kept centralised water heating system which is run by Diesel. Still we are trying hard to fight with govt and get a 3 phase light. Hopefully we will get it soon then all heating system will be sorted. We will try and sort out all problems asap. Thank you once again for your feedback. Regards Team Nest

The resort functions on sub-obtimal infrastructure and untrained local staff. While the staff are extremely polite but they could not make the bed or clean the rooms with the required professionalism. The lights in the room 7 were not working which were restored late evening only after we pushed the staff. The time of our visit coincided with extended holiday weekend leading to full load, power cut was imminent in the area but the resort was not prepared to handle the same- there was no hot water for bathing, and there was no support to get at least a bucket of water for full 45 minutes with the backend team lying that geyser has just started. In the evening there was no power for 15 minutes citing overload of inverter. While the food was good, the quantity available in buffet was insufficient and if we went later most food items wouldn’t be available. When the resort manager Vicky was told, he said that nobody is complaining and if we wished we could vacate- another Manager Mr Patra was enjoying his tea in morning sun and was least bothered that customers were complaining. This was the audacity of the hotel senior team as the area had excessive tourists and they were sure to find replacement. Would not recommend this place at all due to apathy of the managerial staff.

Dear Guest, We kindly and deeply apologies for the incovenience caused. This case requires the justification from our side too and that's how it is: The staff is local but well trained and very well mannered (working from many years), they are always on the thier toes to provide the best service to all our guests. Cottage number 7 is our one of the best cottages and it is a family cottage which your fellow traveler booked especially. All the lights were working really fine except the one which got changed right afer your very first call. The staff was handled rudely and being shouted publically for room cleaning despite the room keys were not handed over before you left and we don't enter to our guest's room without their permission till the time they don't checkout. On a genuine note, We agree that the power cut was there for more then the expected time and that happened due to some incident which was out of our control but our hospitality team made sure that our guests should not suffer. We arranged hot water through boiler for the entire 17 cottages which all of our guests consumed till 9:30 AM. Normally the geyser takes 20-25 minutes to re-heat as the weather is cold here, your husband took shower and that's why it took more time to reheat the water (which can't be done in 5-10 minutes) therefore we have arranged a bucket of hot water for you especially in 30 minutes (even on the backup). Instead, the staff was handled very rudely. Our Manager(Vicky) was behaving very politely and was continuously requesting you to please not to shout as there were more guests in the property and it wasn't looking nice for either of the sides. One of your co-traveler himself was also requesting the same. But when after all our efforts, you were not happy, We also requested you to please switch to some other property if you like and we also told you that we will refund the amount respectively but you didn't agree on those terms too. Also, to mention, your Co-travelers were very happy with the services and sent few more guests later and especially requested to provide COTTAGE No: 7 to them. We always try our best to provide a memorable stay to our all the guests doesn't matter the resort is fully or partially occupied. Rest, you can read about our other guests experience on Google or other platforms too. Lastly, We again deeply apologies for the convenience caused.

From the moment we walked in the entrance to The Nest cottages Resort at pangot, Nanital. we were thoroughly impressed. The interior decor was upscale yet warm and inviting and the personnel we encountered were all very pleasant and accommodating. The decor of our rooms was neat and comfortable and wow, what a pleasant view from our balcony.
The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially enjoyed the our drinks in the evening with Bonfire and light music along with wonderful snacks and food those were delicious and scrumptious.
Overall, what a wonderful trip and a Great deal. Special thanks to Mr Patra for making all the arrangements for us and his staff was helpful and excellent too. We thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciate all the work the resort put into our visit. We would definitely recommend The Nest Cottages Resort as a great place to come to relax and enjoy yourself.

Thanks again to Mr patra and his team for the wonderful hospitality they had given to us.

Again Good jobs guys! We appreciated the services and the hospitality.

Sincerely,

Abhishek Sharma

Amidst the woods.. quiet.. and most serene setting is the cottage nest. The eco friendly nature of the property adds a whole lot of charm and character. The owners of the place are even more of a delight and ensure every guest feels at home and is taken care of. The food is beyond exceptional and each dish comes out fresh and you can't help but ask for more... from the food to conversations to just just walk around the place you just don't want to ever leave. Our next trip is already planned thanks to the owners and they also gave us some more amazing tips and place to further explore and if it wasn't for them we would have missed out on some really good stuff. They make the experience whole and complete.
Its totally worth every second you have.
Thank you Dhruv and Digvijay and Uncle for such an amazing experience when it wasn't just food you served but a whole lot of happiness and contentment.

My experience at this hotel was extremely poor. The staff lacked courtesy, and there was inconsistency in pricing and services offered to different guests for similar rooms. We felt deceived by the high prices during the peak season. The quality of food was extremely low, and the absence of a TV in the room, along with the inability to order food for room delivery, were major drawbacks. I strongly recommend looking into nearby resorts that offer better views, facilities, courteous staff, and more reasonable pricing. This place is definitely not worth recommending.

Stayed at Nest Cottages.. resort is situated in the heart of Pangot town, just 250m from main market.. the location is very convenient.. they have their own parking & wheelchair accessible rooms that makes it the ideal choice if travelling with senior citizens. Visited with my parents a week ago.. Staff was very warm & welcoming.. The manager Mr. Imran was attentive & knowledgeable helped us plan our days, ensuring we made the most of our time.
