The first time I stayed at Country Villa, I was on a tiny budget, and booking this place was a splurge. As I watched the full moon rise over the misty peaks and valleys and watched the sun rise over the Himalayas, I decided it was worth every cent. (check out my photos; stunning view!)
Two years later, living in Kathmandu, my partner and I decided to check this place out for a nice two-night weekend getaway over the Nepali New Year. We booked on Agoda and were not disappointed by our experience. We were surprised at arrived by being shown the room in the tower above reception (no shared walls with any other guest room, which is nice in a resort of this size that caters to big tour groups). The room was lovely, and frankly much nicer than the room I stayed in two years ago. The bathroom looked like it had been recently renovated, and the sheets were clean and fluffy and new. The view was spectacular (we were happy to have clear weather in the pre-monsoon season of April).
It's true, there was a strange prevalence of flies in the resort during the day. They were buzzing noisily on our first morning there but they were not overly distracting for most of our stay. Weirdly, they disappeared by the next morning (we were grateful).
Country Villa is not the kind of place you want to go for "character" or and "authentic" experience. It is a relatively massive resort, with huge tour groups. Nevertheless, we found our weekend cozy and pleasant.
So I have had two lovely experiences here. One complaint. We found dinner at the hotel VERY expensive. Yes, it is an all-you-can-eat buffet. But if you walk five minutes down the road to a small restaurant, they will only charge ~200 rupees for a full daal bhat meal. At Country Villa, dinner will run you ~800 rupees. Take the walk and save some $.
