“A mixed experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

On my arrival the staff were friendly and helpful, bringing the masala tea I had ordered to my room for me.I had a downstairs corner room which though it wasn't very cosy, did have lovely views down into the valley. The food here is excellent but very very overpriced, which you realise if you leave the hotel to eat elsewhere. the view at sunrise and sunset is spectacular from the patio area and even better is to climb up the metal steps which pass by the "sunrise" room(cool round room with 360 views) onto the roof of the hotel. It's so stunning from the roof, with groups of eagles flying over your head and the himalayas that it's quite breathtaking.
That said, the atmosphere was pretty impersonal with nowhere social to hang out which I prize as a solo traveller. One more thing, which I didn't mention to the staff while I was staying as I had already prepaid for the room and the views were stunning.was that there were worms in the bathroom. This was pretty disgusting to be honest and I found nothing like this anywhere else in Nepal, even in much cheaper places. I don't know if they were coming up from the drain or out of the taps but I spent a fair amount of time sluicing down the bathroom floor so i could shower without stepping on them.Yuck. It wasn't cosy and it was mainly peaceful apart from the generator which was fairly near my room. Also they are constructing a new building just below which isn't pretty. I recommend the "hot grog", a nice bedtime combination of honey lemon ginger and rum which took my mind off the worms...

We stayed here for 6 nights in February, which is unheard of as most people come up for one night to see the mountains and then head off again. And while it was really cold a couple of nights, the warmth of the staff made up for it. We had a corner room with spectacular views of the mountains from two sides. The room itself wasn't spectacular, but the bed was comfy and warm. There is a lovely deck upstairs to sit for breakfast and a roof top viewing point. And the views are magnificent! We enjoyed our days walking through this peaceful area and the hot ginger tea with honey and lemon each night was treat. As long as you don't mind waiting till about 5 pm for a hot shower (the water is solar heated) and you aren't looking for super posh, then this is a nice quiet, friendly place to stay.

What to say ? You are in Nepal and at 2000 m alt. so it is normal to have electricity 3h a day/night, it is normal not to get hot water, it is normal the room is not at all a 5 stars conditions, it is normal to get no water for a shower or just washing your face in the morning, mainly after a night of heavy rain. BUT the food, the service, the peacefulness of the hotel and most of all the view of the mountains in front of you (almost a 360deg view) with Everest view is just priceless. And will make you forget all the rest. And make you stay one more night or make you come back ..... In that hotel and nowhere else.....

For your gentle reminder, the electricity black out is 12 hours a day. So, we have recently installed solar panels for electricity and also for hot water. As we try to be as eco friendly as possible, we do not have generator yet in our resort. So, for the guests, when there is no sunny day, we offer a hot bucket of hot water for the guests.

Looking forward to welcome you in near future.

There's no doubt the hotel is located in a beautiful area with stunning views. However, we were pretty shocked on arrival having read all the 4 & 5-star reviews. This place is extremely basic. The bedroom was reasonably clean but cold and shabby. It definitely wasn't new or modern. We were offered a heater which did eventually turn up but soon ran out of gas. There was no hot water, so on our first morning the staff arranged for two buckets of hot water, which took an hour and a half to arrive. There was no toilet seat on the loo and water from the sink tap didn't quite reach the sink but ran over the counter and floor. The one meal we had, sitting out on the terrace, wasn't great and they wouldn't let us go inside when it started raining as they were working on the dining room! So, we headed into town to eat the rest of the time. Sadly, we didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as we'd hoped. It was neither comfortable or relaxing.

This is the perfect getaway from Kathmandu. The best part is the customer service and the hospitable team! We had guided trekking tours (also in french) during 2 full days and this made the stay at the Peace cottage one of the most exceptional places with exceptional people in the world. Thank you to Caron and the team for showing us the hills of Nagarkot and making the journey to Nepal unforgettable.
Merci a l'equipe :)
