I've stayed in several hotels in Nagarkot, but this is one of the best. The rooms are fantastic in the new wing - wonderful balconies with a great view, modern amenities and great beds. Hot water in the taps is almost instantaneous, which you need on a cold winter night.
The only problem is the restaurant - it seems the wait staff work almost impossible 18 hour shifts, and so their service is quite poor. I ordered a caramel custard which came out frozen inside, and one of the waiters actually had the gall to tell me it didn't look frozen (believe me, I wish it wasn't). For dinner, we wanted to order a la carte, but the waiter seemed quite put out by our choice, and kept insisting we try the buffet (which is nothing to write home about). The breakfast was also just okay, but I guess that is the deal with the breakfasts in Nepal bed and breakfasts. The restaurant windows can also do with some aggressive cleaning.
Overall, a wonderful stay with sub-par food.
