Our stay in the Parkside hotel from april 19 till 21, was part of an organised trip throughout India en Nepal. Everytime we reached our destination it was a surprise what kind of accommodation we would find. Of course you schould not classify the hotels according to the European standards. A four star hotel in Paris or Amsterdam is not the same as a four star hotel in Nepal. Thus the titel of this review does not refer to the classification of the hotel. The hotel was good, clean and met with all the standards of comfort. No complaints at all (but don't forget to check if the main power switch outside the door to your room is turned on!). The classification refers to the total concept and experience. The welcome, the buffets, the tours, the walks, enhanced by the wonderful surrondings and the friendly and helpfull staff. We were blessed with the company of 'ranger' Khage on all our tours. Unprejudiced and respectful he explains the way of life of the people in this part of our beautiful world. He makes a walk in the park, a truly first class experience! The credits should also go to the three musketeers (the owners of the hotel, three brothers).

Room Tip: Take the rooms on the first floor above the entrance of the main building.

If you're looking for a place to relax and enjoy all the wildlife in Chitwan National Park, this is the hotel to stay. The tranquillity of the garden, the good beds, room and warm shower gave me a wonderful time at hotel Parkside. The staff is very kind. There are alot of excursions in Chitwan National Park in the direct area of the hotel, most of them 5 -10 minutes distance. The food is good and tasteful. Wifi is available which is a luxury if you ask me. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was by far the best place we stayed in Nepal. The hotel itself is very nice – clean and modern with the most amazing staff. All rooms have mosquito nets and the showers are hot and powerful.
As soon as we arrived lunch was served and it was delicious and plentiful (and Western, as were all the guests).
There is a full programme of activities every day and the staff are more than obliging – they will accommodate your wishes whenever possible.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner were included every day as well as all the activities – it is excellent value for money. The owner, Sher, donates a percentage of the hotel’s profits to local small businesses and is setting up a school in the village, having already established a community centre with computers, books etc. The elephant dung paper shop across the road has lovely items for sale (an unusual gift!!). There are also lots of little local shops and everyone is delighted to talk to you, smile and wave – wonderful people.
In the evenings there is traditional local entertainment in the garden plus wonderful food and drink served to your table.
We visited the elephant stables, went on a Jeep safari with Gopal, a very knowledgeable guide, where we saw monkeys, lots of rhinos, spotted and sambar deer, marsh mugger and enormous gharial crocodiles and many different types of birds.
We also went on a canoe ride on the river and an elephant safari which lasted nearly 2 hours – pretty uncomfortable but a great way to see the animals who take no notice of the elephants so can get up close.
We had a wonderful time and wish we’d allocated more days to this part of our holiday.

Room Tip: 16 rooms all central and well appointed.

We went to parkside twice and had a great time. We went at the time of Holi festival and loved throwing colours at the kids. The best part of Parkside is their guide Gopal. He has fantastic knowledge of the animals and the jungle. He took us on a canoe trip in the morning (stunning) and on a walking safari as well as a jeep safari. He always has a friendly smile and even kept us safe when we were very close to rhinos. Gopal from Nepal is the best :)

Hotel Parkside is the perfect place to stay for a visit to the Chitwan jungle. Cheap and chill with a great restaurant up top and a hammock in the garden. They arrange any activity you want and the beds are comfy and the whole place has a rustic, log cabin feel. Clean, no surprise 6-legged bedroom intruders, but the electricity and WiFi does waver occasionally.

The real gem here though is a man named Gopal. I opted out of the elephant safari after witnessing some trainers abuse the elephants, so instead Gopal took me birdwatching. This man is an encyclopedia of knowledge and probably located 100 out of the 400 different species of birds in the Chitwan for me on our two days of exploration. I'd say opt out of the elephant safari (go for the jeep instead), and give Gopal $10 to take you on a walking tour of the jungle. He may even take you to the secret elephants at the abandoned hotel!!
