We were booked to spend 3 nights at this hotel but checked out after a black rat was in the dining room and our bedroom. Mould all over the walls, dreadful damp smell, stained sheets, broken bed, no hot water and bedroom carpet eaten by rats. It was the most shocking hotel and we checked out as soon as we... More

We stayed at the Jamling Norgay suite from 7th June to 9th June 2014. Rooms were clean, spacious..the staff... very courteous and helpful. It is conveniently located slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the mall and a fifteen minute walk to the mall always helps get that appetite stirring. The biggest asset of this hotel is the manager... More

The staff and service at this hotel were special. The staff were very warm, very keen to introduce us to the food and culture of the region. They were very helpful. The room was very large, with a large sitting area. It was also clean and had a lovely view.
