We had very comfortable rooms in the garden.The room and bathroom was spacious and very clean.In the restaurant you share dinner and breakfast with the other guests which creates a very informal atmosphere.On top of that the trips into the park are organized by the resort under excellent guidance.The management is very active in giving the guests a special experience.
We had a wonderful time thanks to everybody at the resort.We sincerely recommend this place.

Lovely place to stay. Rooms are very clean and nicely sized. My room was located in the oldest building which has a nice historic touch. The food at Parkside is good. Amount of people staying in the hotel can be quite large, but with all the different activities you can still visit the jungle in a small group. And, like many said before, Gopal is a fantastic guy and excellent guide.

This hotel had great reviews, hence my friend and I deciding to book it for 2 nights. Not only was our room very average for the price we paid, but also the staff were not expecting us (even though we booked online)! The staff were less than helpful when we were seeking information, we believe this may have been due to the fact that we were travelling independently and not as part of a pre-booked package tour. Each time we attempted to book activities at for the park (eg, elephant riding, jeep tour) there was just no-one around. The office was empty every time we went to seek info and no-one seemed to care or approach us. We were trying to book activities through our own hotel simply because we read that this was the appropriate etiquette for independent travellers in Chitwan. After booking activities elsewhere, through more approachable tour organisers, the men that apparently "worked" at the hotel started to ask if we had booked anything. When they found that we had booked elsewhere they treated us quite rudely. Originally we tried to book from Kathmandu and the quoted through various agencies was approx USD$200. This price was inclusive of hotel, food, activities and transport, however we weren't interested in all of the activities, and wanted to choose our own. As independent travellers we spent approx AUD$60 on 2 nights accomm, food, transport, and many of the activities that were included in the packaged tours. This hotel was definitely the least friendly and helpful that we have stayed at in Nepal, as well as being overpriced for its (lack of) facilities.

This hotel is very clean and staff are excellent. Hotel owners and Staff were very helpful. Food was good and the staff always took care of the customers. We even nicknamed daughter of one of hotel owners as 'Gulabo', means Rosy.

Everything about my 3 night stay at Hotel Parkside was fantastic, the wildlife was exquisite, the hotel grounds and room was wonderful and the staff was great. My guide, Gopal, was the absolute best tour guide I could have possibly imagined. His expertise is second to none. I can not recommend you spending your time at Chitwan anywhere other than at Hotel Parkside and under the tutelage of Gopal.

We'd like to second all the positive comments of other reviewers. We've never done any kind of travel package before and were surprised and pleased by our experience. The hotel is clean, modern and well managed by a friendly staff. Our experiences with our guide, Gopal, were remarkable; among other things, we (that is, he) identified over 60 species of birds. His knowledge is encyclopedic! As others have mentioned, the management's commitment to developing the community is a model for how positive change might happen in Nepal. Don't miss the culture show put on by the young men of the town!
