“My favourite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Many of my travelling companions wondered why I loved Bhaktapur so much. I would have to say it is because I found the Peacock Guest House. I meant to stay only for the day , but when my friend checked into the Peacock it was love at first sight. I asked if they had a room and was off to buy a toothbrush. Even though I had a room in Kathmandu, I couldn't resist staying a night in this beautiful historic house. They helped make my Bhaktapur experience a beautiful and relaxed one. Arunodaya and his wife Indra will make sure you have everything you need. I only wish I would of had more time to stay there. The food was fantastic and the rooms were very clean and cozy. Truly, you will arrive guests and leave friends.

my boyfriend and i have stayed one week in The Peacock Guest House. We really like the place. the room is very clean and there is real hot shower which is quiet rare in Bhaktapur.The food is just like what your mother cooks. The owners are friendly and always ready to help. i can see they have tried their best to make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Besides this the hotel deserve your attention which is a mastpiece itself. the owner told me the house has been kept the same way it was hundred years ago. they have all the exquisite and amazing wood carving pieces all over the place and you can see people making the wood carving inside the house. The Peacock Guest House is definitely where i would like to stay next time i go there.

Room Tip: there is a room at the top floor on the north side from where you can oversee the square.

I only stayed one night in this beautiful Newari guesthouse, but wish my schedule had allowed longer. The hospitality was fantastic and the showers were soooooo hot, perfect after the dusty car ride from Kathmandu!
Extra blankets and towels were happily provided and the room was clean and welcoming.
The wood carving shop here is fantastic and we bought several pieces.
Definitely recommend if you want to get into the heart of the Newari architecture and Bhaktapur.

I loved staying at The Peacock Guesthouse, so much so that I went back again at the end of my trip! The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious and the showers hot. What I absolutely adored was the wood carving workshop - as you enter the guesthouse, you can see the wood carvers working away, creating the most beautiful ornaments you'll ever see! The beautiful wood carvings can be seen all over the guesthouse, from the tables all the way through to the walls. Their new in-house restaurant also deserves a special mention; it's only been open for a couple of months but is already wildly popular. This is no surprise considering they serve up only the most delicious and fresh food. And most importantly, the owners Arun and Indra were genuinely friendly, always going out of their way to help me out in any way possible - they really made me feel at home and never just a stranger staying in their guesthouse. I left knowing that I had made two great new friends.

Room Tip: The rooms close to the balcony are wonderful!

The Peacock Guest House is located in the old center of Bhaktapur, which is like walking through a museum. Many very old and beautiful buildings line the square. The guesthouse itself is also housed in a wonderful historical building with magnificent woodcarvings. The rooms are spacious and clean, the food is good and the staff is very friendly. I would highly recommend this place when you have a few days to spend in Bhaktapur!

Great place to stay, I never have slept in such a historical building before. Super access to walk out the door and get into the morning rhythm of the day. Food was excellent too and the chef cooked to order.

In all my traveling through India and Nepal, this quaint, charming guesthouse has won my heart. With an amazing view of the ancient city of Bhaktapur, a personal touch with Newari wood carving shop, the Peacock Guesthouse is a must to stay when in town. The owners are lovable, the staff sweet and friendly, the rooms clean, the beds.. COMFORTABLE, the showers HOT HOT HOT, and most of all.. the food is made with LOTS of LOVE!!!! What else more do you need to know??
