Check-in was a disaster: it took 15 minutes and some harsh negotiation for them to finally assign the double rooms with lake view we had booked. They argued that booking information had not been accurately communicated to them. Then, there was no hot water in the hotel rooms for a pre-dinner shower. Only mild excuses were given and no compensation was provided.
Furthermore, they charged Rs 750 per day and per device to get internet in the rooms which is a total rip off in 2013. The paint of the rooms was a bit worn out especially on the bathroom door. Breakfast quality and choice were quite average, but the smiles of the staff helped.
Not sure that I would choose this hotel again if I went back to Pokhara.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pokhara's Waterfront Resort lies on the tranquil rural northern shore of the beautiful Phewa Lake. With supremely comfortable, air-conditioned en-suite rooms, each with a lake-view balcony, it is the perfect place to relax and unwind. In the mornings, as the sun's rays catch the Peace Pagoda above the southern lake shore, you will see fishermen paddling their boats close to the lake's edge pulling in their nets. Mid-morning, after the sun has warmed up the land, you'll be able to watch tens of para gliders coming into land while you enjoy a cappuccino on the terrace or lounge by the sparkling garden pool. Pokhara's Waterfront Resort is just a 10-minute ride from the airport, and just a 15-minute walk from the busy tourist hub or 5 minutes in a taxi. There's no need to walk: the hotel provides free shuttle service into Lakeside at intervals throughout the day. ... more less
