That was my third trip to Nepal and my second visit to the Shivapuri Heights Cottage. I couldn't go back home without finishing my stay in the Shivapuri Cottage! It was, both times, like a healing experience after a long trip trekking and after visiting the beautiful but stressful city of Kathmandu. And the food is fanastic!!!
The views are just great and the athmosphere very cosy and relaxed. The hosts couldn't be better company but leaving all your space to do what you feel like doing in such a fantastic spot. You can go hiking in the mountains nearby or you can just relax and sunbath, or read or have a really relaxing massage...
I recomended it to some friends and family that have visited Nepal after my second trip there and they just loved it as much as I did.
You can not miss it!

Shivapuri Heights Cottages is excellent value for money. It's just a short drive out of Kathmandu (40 min), but feels as if you've left the hectic and grittiness of the city far behind. The premises is perched on a hillside abutting Shivapuri forest. The grounds are not expansive, but are very well groomed and taken care of. There are two outstanding points of staying in the cottages: the food, which was a mix of Nepali and western cuisine (our choice) is served smorgasbord style, and was scrumptious. Second is the setting. The view was terrific, and the location is tranquil and the rooms cozy. So it's great for relaxing with a book, or taking a short hike or just catching up on sleep. Wireless is available if you need to get some work done. There's a good collection of reading materials. Next time we'd like a weekend escape, we'll be back!

Everything about this place was first rate - from the superb facilities to the excellent food. The communal atmosphere for the place was, for me, the highlight. It seemed far more like staying with a group of friends that a group of otherwise unconnected travelers. Plus, the dogs are really friendly.

After a month and a half in Nepal, this was by far the best night's sleep I've had! Highly recommended to the nth degree.

I arrived at SP Heights after a long day of walking. I was recommended to come here by a friend, and it certainly lived up to expectations; in fact, it excelled beyond them.
I arrived feeling very tired and achy after spending the whole day walking, so it was very satisfactory for me to feel completely fine again less than 1 hour after arriving. The atmosphere is very congenial, although me and my friend still very much had our own space to relax.
The most memorable aspect of my trip to SP Heights was the friendliness of the staff and owners. We were invited for drinks and dinner and so my overnight stay there felt more like a gathering of family and friends rather than a hotel stay.
The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. There are plenty of furnishings to make you feel comfortable and welcome.
In short, given the fee I paid to stay there, I would strongly recommend a stay at Shivapuri Heights Cottage. It is very pleasant and the location is fantastic, with good, quick transport links into central Kathmandu.
Highly recommended.

The cottage was a great place to relax and escape from Kathmandu before heading out on a remote trek. Would have also been a wonderful place to return to for a relaxing recovery. Steve was a wonderful host and all of the staff were very friendly and provided a great informal environment to match the location. The scenery and fresh air was great and particularly appreciated at night with it being easier to forget just how close to Kathmandu the cottage is. A wonderfully laid back setup with options to do as little or as much activity as you like. Guided walks were great as was just catching up with a good book and enjoying the fresh air and views. Rooms and amenities were very clean and comfortable. As other reviewers have noted, there is no lacking in quantity of quality of food. The Nepali curries were particularly good in my opinion with the western food being top notch also. All in all the cottage offered a very flexible experience with Steve and the team ensuring that guests got what they wanted out of there time at the cottage. He also did a great job of playing host to a variety of guests. Would love to go back if I am again in Nepal.

I went in a group of two couples and we were joined by various of the owners family and friends and the adjoining cottage homed a family for the weekend. A place to feel at home - tea and coffee and water on demand, an honesty bar and way too much food for three meals a day!
We were keen to do some yoga, which the owners sorted for us and we did our poses on the grass lawn. Also went for a walk up into Shivapuri National Park.
