But this time the gap was little longer, we visited last week of june 2014 with my family. When we reached near the gate of Lakeside Retreat we... More

The Lakeside Retreat is perfectly located in Lakeside Pokhara with an outstanding hospitality among the staffs. The hotel rooms were fantastic with great facilities. The owner Mr & Ms Prasai was very helpful and kind. It was really an awesome experience in The Lakeside Retreat, Pokhara during my four days trip with my friend.

I will like to recommend this hotel to fellow travelers because it is clean, comfort and for the location where you can find all the activities going on. this hotel was recommended by travel agent in Kathmandu its a bit expansive but worth the money. the breakfast they is also good. There is constant power supply.

I enjoyed two different stays at the Lakeside Retreat, choosing to stay again after a trek. I enjoyed the green, the park-like arrangement, and the location off the main Lakeside road. The staff were responsive and very friendly. I appreciated the individual attention of the manager, Nabin.

We were recommended The Lakeside Retreat by Premkantha Shretha, the owner of Dhulikhel Forest Lodge and were glad to stay in Lakeside Retreat. It is quite a brand new property with all new facilities. No complaints except that in Pokhara, during the Summer power cuts are frequent and most Hotels don't run the generator between 10 AM to 5 PM... More

A cosy atmosphere in the resort premises. Well appointed-rooms and cottages, a small lawn,greenery all round and a reception with sides opened giving a sense of space. The well-stocked bar and the dining hall form part of a separate block. There is a spa too but I couldn't make use of it. Two things stand out--- 1) The location in... More
