The Lakeside Retreat is set a little back off the main drag, so quiet whilst still being easily accessible to shops and restaurants. the rooms are set in spacious grounds - rather south=east Asian style - and are very pleasant with nice en suites. The reception area is roofed but otherwise open - a tribute to Pokhara's climate, I guess....

Stunning. Great location and the rooms are all dotted around as small villas offering great views of the mountains. Swimming pool being built as I stayed so when finished this place will be even better. Walking distance to the lake across the road and countless restaurant and bars and shops all within 100 yards

After a two week trek, we took a recommendation from another trekker we met, and stayed at this hotel. We got room 1201 as another reviewer recommended- and it did indeed have a fantastic view of the Fishtail and Annapurna mountains. Only downside of that room is that it is above the area where tour groups are hanging, then loading...

Our travel agency booked this place for us. The rooms we had were clean and even spacious. The breakfast was really nice, especially the fresh fruits and the fresh made egg (there's a cook preparing it live for you).

The rooms were comfortable and the service good. Meals (breakfast and dinner) were excellent. We pre-ordered dinner, and had exactly what we requested. The staff were friendly and the location great. Best of all was the roof top view of the Himalayas!

This place is just great! I stayed with two other friends in a 3 bedroom room and it was really nice and clean. Maybe a little more shelf space or space to put clothing would be nice if staying longer than only two nights. The breakfast buffet was really good and the outside area is well taken care of. I...

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...
