KP - You can also try Ramnagar in UT. It's about 250kms from delhi & is about a 5-hour drive also Nainital is about a 90 minute drive from there & you can visit that too if you like.

The resort I recommend is called Corbett Hideaway (Ramnagar is on the outskirts of Jim Corbett National Park) and is very good. I did a small photo feature on it here:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...-ramnagar.html (Trip To Corbett Hide Away Resort, Ramnagar)

The road form Delhi to Hapur is good, Hapur to Moradabad is mixed with both bad & good patches. Moradabad to Ramnagar is absolutely fabulous, just came back from there yesterday!!

You can find more about the resort here: www.leisurehotels.co.in

P.S. Also I would recommend you do a leave on Friday evening and return on sunday evening trip as this will help you relax more and also allow you to spend quality time at the resort.
