After the border crossing from Tibet to Nepal, and the heart-stopping drive down the mountain, it was a relief to stop at a hotel before venturing into Kathmandu traffic. The hotel has great views over the valleys (and perhaps the Himilayan Mountains - but not while we were there). The rooms are a good size with a bed area and separate sitting room area. The furniture in the rooms is old and the style looks as if it was left over from the "British Raj" colonial days.
However, the view doesn't quite make up for the rock-hard beds, lack of electricity until 5.00pm, no internet, dirty antiquated bathroom with no hot water, etc.
The hotel is in bad need of maintenance as a lot of the grounds and also the buildings have been left to fend for themselves.
The staff were pleasant and tried to be helpful. The meals were quite adequate although the bar prices were atrocious. In fact the bar man was adding bits to the bill above the quoted prices + service charges and got away with it until finally queried.
I wouldn't bother staying here again but plunge straight in to Kathmandu.
