The Fort Resort
Ranked #6 of 16 Hotels in Nagarkot
Reviewed June 3, 2013

It has been two weeks since I came back from my memorable trip to Tibet and Nepal,and the mental sight and feeling about the Fort Resort is still vivid in my mind. What a place to stay at, especially after ten days in "difficult"Tibet. Situated on the midway between the Tibetan border and Kathmandu,the Fort Resort offers a gone-by-days experience of lodging in a colonial style place.The garden design, the beautiful wooden cabins, the simple but clean, spacious and very comfortable rooms, the view through the large glass windous,and the excellent restaurant made our stay here just delightful.
Got this place through HighAsiaTours travel agency,which made a very good choice of hotels for us ,in each and every place we stayed. We have already decided for next year,to go to Nepal (again)and Bhutan, and guess where we would definitely like to stay while in the Nagarkot area? In the Fort Resort. Highly recommended!

Unfortunately, our stay at the Fort Resort was not what we hoped for. Our large room was strangely laid out, and when we told reception that there was no hot water, they did not believe us. After they attended our room to verify this, they did nothing. In our view, this is unacceptable for a $100+ room. Although the bed was large and comfortable, the food from the restaurant was quite average, and we were told to submit our order during the afternoon as the kitchen was extremely busy (we were one of three groups staying at the hotel). In addition, the management was aloof (even bordering on hostile).

I was taken by surprise when my husband planned the whole itinerary for our second marriage anniversary, although he's quite good of a planner I was kind of expecting just a regular Nagarkot Hotel. But I was totally blown away by the ambiance and the environment of the Fort Resort. It has the best natural structure and architecture in the whole Nagarkot, with very nice, pleasant and aesthetically pleasing rooms!

The lobby was small yet comfortable but the rooms were very spacious and cosy! The rooftop from the Hotel is also equally fun, with the best view of Sunset.

I was somehow bothered by strange sounds in the night, probably insects or the breezy trees, but that is nothing to be disappointed of. One can greatly enjoy the stay at the Fort Resort. Highly recommended place in Nagarkot. Do not go for over-priced hotels, the Fort Resort is reasonable and exclusive!!

Room Tip: I would recommend fine rooms over cottage rooms.

Unfortunately I arrived late at night and had to depart early the next morning, but I loved every minute of my stay at The Fort. The staff are very friendly, the food is excellent, the rooms very inviting, and the views are spectacular, especially sunrise over the mountains in the morning. I will definitely be going there again when next in Nepal, next time for a little longer stay.

Someone recommended us to go up to Nagarkot to spend a night there and see the beautifil view of Himalayas. That could work during winter, but NOT during summer. We were there in June and there was no view at all, as all the sky is always cloudy in this time of the year.

The Fort was the best hotel we found opened in Nagarkot, but it was quite expensive.The service was ok and the rooms were comfortable, but there was very little to do there.

We stayed in the new building. Very modern room with timber floor. From the living room there is superb view of the mountains.
Would definitely recommend those rooms. The new building has much better rooms comparing to the old building. In non-peak seasons you can even bargain the price.

I stay only one night but I got great experience. On the way to the hotel we have to walk up around 7-15minuite, depend on your style. The garden is beautiful. The scenery very beautiful. The room is small but clean the staff are very helpfull and kind. Really nice and humble.
The view in the morniing very very good. They have wifi in the lobby, the breakfast also great.
I will stay again if I came to nagarkot.
