We were recommended Hotel Garden in Pokhara by a friend who had stayed there on a Para gliding trip the year before (we don't Paraglide). We had spoken of always wanting to visit Nepal but didn’t really have a clue as what to do or see. He put us in touch with John (the Hotel Owner), he was honest about... More

Having stayed here previously (2009) I took my family back this year - two teenage daughters. As previously experienced - the friendliness and responsiveness of our needs by the owners and staff far exceeded the level of that we expected. This hotel volunteers an unofficial tourist information service that we found to be faultless – voluntarily offering suggestions to our... More

Maya, John, Cameron (hotel's owners) and their crew participated in making my stay in Nepal a beautiful experience. The hotel they run is a cozy and peaceful place ideally located.....close enough to the city to be convenient, but far enough away to be tranquil. It has an accessible rooftop that offers amazing view of the mountain range. Rooms are clean... More

I came to Pokhara on business alone. The family who runs the Hotel Garden were so welcoming and gracious. John Mitchell, an expat from England, runs this charming and cozy hotel along with his Nepali wife Maya and their exuberant 7 year old Cameron. Along with them to make sure you have everything you need day and night are Maya's... More

The whole event was fantastic, the time well spent traveling to locations without the big tour group experience. This gave us a different feel on the whole trip, the village in the mountains so quite and remote with simple life and no cars or phones, bless and the local juice blow your head off. To the Emperor style hotel in... More

I stayed at Hotel Garden for 8 days rafting, paragliding and chilling - and managed all three! Communications with the hotel were excellent with rapid response to emails and John even calling me at one point to confirm my exact plans. Nothing was too much trouble; he managed to arrange accommodation in Kathmandu for me at short notice, arranged airport... More

I travelled to Pokhara for a paragliding adventure and stumbled over John & Maya's Hotel through a UK paragliding magazine. Not knowing quite what to expect, I was more than plesently suprised on arrival. The Hotel itself if in Damside, some 15 minutes walk from the busier and somewhat noisier Lakeside. Being out of the centre for me was in... More

Nice and clean hotel located 15 min walk away from the stress at Lake side. Good service and a friendly atmosphere. The view from the roof top is amazing. For paragliding pilots: if this is you first time in Pokhara, use this hotel. You will not find better service. (The owner (John) is a PG pilot himself) http://www.hotel-garden-nepal.co.uk/
