Balrampur House Nainital was the summer Palace of the Royal Family of Balrampur since the 1880's. It was known as Ivy Park Palace till 1932 when the old single story palace was demolished to recreate a modern structure by the famous European Architect, Monsieur Mortimere in the style of a French Chateaux.
Every year the Maharaja of Balrampur would move to Nainital in the Kumaoun hills with his officials and entourage to escape the blistering heat of the plains and govern his Estate from the cool climate of the hill station, returning to Balrampur with the onset of monsoon rains.
Balrampur House, second only to the Government House with its sprawling gardens landscaped by manually chiselling out the hillside to create perfect flat lands, towered by Cheena Peak as a back drop is amongst the most beautiful and imposing properties in Nainital. The present Maharaja converted the Palace into a Heritage Hotel in 1995.
