This hotel provides a wonderful relax after a serious trek in the mountains. Pamper yourself with a bit of luxury at excellent value for money. It is easy walking from all the bustle of lakeside yet is its own sanctuary. The staff are particularly attentive and polite at all times.

Room Tip: No need. They are all excellent

We stayed there in march 2011.it was our second stop after Kathmandu.Its located in an Island. A small ferry takes you to the lodge. Spectacular mountain view of Mt, Machapurchre, Annapurna south and Mt. Dhaulagir. The entire place is surrounded by forest,hill on one side and lake on the other side. The little cottages are really very beautiful and peaceful. The moon view from the garden hammock, sunrise, sunset, live music on evening really makes wonderful memories. We will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Hill facing cottages are really good

This hotel is a classic from back when people were only starting to go to Nepal, but it hasn't really been renovated since 1970. It is on it's own island on the lake right next to the town of Pokhara, an transport to and from the hotel is done via a barge that his pulled by an attendant using a fixed rope to either shore. While this is kind of cool at first, it takes a while and gets old rather quickly.

The rooms facing the lake are festooned with plaques commemorating the stays of various prime ministers, UN Secretaries General, Prince Charles, and Jimmy Carter. All of these too place in the 60's and 70's. It is telling that none has taken place since. The rooms are incredibly small and have two single beds with blankets and sheets that could be described as "adequate." The bathrooms are an afterthought that are crammed into the center of the circular buildings so that all bathroom windows open onto a small center space and you can be treated to the sounds of your neighbors in the bathroom every morning. Showers have hot water, but that's about all I can say for them. Rooms generally feel like a weird room form a US National Park Service lodge at a third-tier national park from 1980.

This is not to understate the convenience of the lodge as a base for seeing the surrounding area or the beauty of the lodge's location. The sun sets in back of the lodge so that they Annapurnas across the lake are lit up with the colors of the sunset and are reflected in the lake on a calm day. An amazing view and one to which semi-professional photographers flocked. From Pokhara you can walk anywhere you want in the Annapurnas, including to Annapurna base camp if you have a week each way. But the options are limitless.

Be aware that Winter in Nepal is the dry season, so the cities are socked in with smog. The first day we were there, we couldn't see the mountains because the smog was so thick. However, if you spend a little energy to hike into the hills to the North, you can get above / beyond the smog, and then the views of the Annapurnas is amazing. I'm not too sure what the other hotel options in Pokhara are, but I go tthe sense that they are all fairly low end. All in all this is probably one of the better options in the area.

The town of Pokhara itself is overly touristy. Restaurants are good and the presence of so many tourists ensures that picky eaters from the West can find a pizza or pasta, but I don't consider this a plus. The town is full of tourist traps with rip off North Face and the same stuff as everybody else. Generally I would stay out of town and spend my time in the hills.

Room Tip: Pay for the deluxe (or whatever they're called) rooms that front the lake and have a view of the Annapurnas

This hotel has without doubt the best location in Pokhara. Stunning views, in particular from the Heritage rooms on a clear day. However, the rooms are in dire and urgent need of refurbishment unless you suffer from brittish nostalgia. The room in which Prince Charles stayed in 1982 looks as if he never left....charming, perhaps, for some, but not at 300 dollar a night in Pokhara. The spa is an absolute no go. Extremely cramped quarters without decent lighting, so don't even dream about getting a manicure or pedicure. Food is edible, but that is the best that can be said. A once in a life time experience? Yes, because one does not return.
