I stayed in the Castle in 2013. Jim, the owner, was an absolute gentleman. We came up to have a few drinks and enjoy the pool. The weather turned and it was torrential. Jim allowed us stay free of charge. He said you couldn't turn people away in that weather. After a lovely meal and a great sleep, we left with the best impressions ever. Go there, you'll love it. We'll be back, and then some.

I have been here 20 times or more. The Castle Resort is a gem. Wonderfully located below Sarangkot with all those paragliders. Best place to start an easy trek or even an expedition in the Himalayas! I will be back latest in April 2020 to have one or two more drinks with Sophie & Joe Hammond. Rolf

I returned to the Castle Resort once again last May with my son after an adventurous trek to Upper Mustang and we were very happy to relax in this haven of peace. The castle actually is a small and unpretentious, yet very comfortable but atypical Homestay. There is a red tower, hence the name castle, and even hosts a small and cosy pub. The owner, Pipe Baba is Irish and you will often find him sitting there telling exciting stories of his and his lovely wife's Sophia climbing expeditions as they're a both mountain lovers and have been all over the Himalayas. They could even organize a trek for you. I love this place set in such a lush and tranquil environment, away from the hustle and bustle of busy lakeside. It's situated on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful Fewa lake and the world peace pagoda but only 20 minutes walking distance away from the center. It has a lovely garden and even a pool which we thoroughly enjoyed to loosen up our muscles after the trek. And best of all, you will be greeted by the owners Boxer dog, a bunch of chicken and sometimes even monkeys. 5 minutes up the hill there is now a Yoga center with a lovely view over the lake and the Hatha Yoga session I attended was unexpectedly good and professional. Just a little further up is Sarangkot and the sky is filled most of the time with colorful Paragliders, you should go and one of pipe Baba's and Sophia's friend does professional tandem flights. I love it and do it whenever I can! If you don't mind getting up early, you also should take a hike up the mountain behind the castle to watch the splendid sunset and to get a good view of Machapuchare or commonly called: fishtail mountain. Believe me, it's worth it and it only takes about 1 hour or so to walk up. I couldn't recommend this place more and many thanks again dear Sophia, Pipe Baba and staff for making our stay with you so relaxed and comfortable! Alisha and Max

The hotel is 10 min walking from the road but offer a very quiet space with good view and good accomodation out if the busy and turistic down town. Food is great, foreign owner make sure everything is fine. The swiming pool i great in day time to rest after a trek. People are very nice like else where but also very helpful. I had plan to do a 2 days treck alone but rabin, one of the staff proposed me to come along with me, damn it was so useful for all little logistic details and no hesitation on the track which can poison your trip and he has been a very pleasant company, such a lovely guy. I thank him so much and i thank the hotel management to have let this happen. Hubert valois
