What more should I expect when I can literally see the Annapurna range hills from my bed? The room number is 1201, the best room in the resort. It's a bit far from the main tourist gatherings but the best location if you feel like staying away from noise. The staffs goes out of their ways to satisfy customers. I... More

Have had dinner at Lakeside Retreat on various occasions when in Pokhara. The food is always excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. I would recommend this resort to anyone. It's suitable for couples and families. As a solo traveller it was perfect for me.

Nice garden with a variety with fruit trees. A little far from the main town but there are good cheap food around the vincinity. On a clear sky, you can see the 'fish tail' and the Himalayan range. Room size and bath room size is acceptable. Plenty of TV channels but some have reception problems - especially on rainy days.... More

It is a nice hotel in a quiet area of Pokhara. The rooms are good sized and there is a garden to relax after visiting the city (though Pokhara is a relaxing place, not hectic like Kathmandu). Buffet breakfast was good.
