Comfortable room, great food, friendly and helpful staff and beautiful views of the Annapurna range. Oh and a nice hot shower in the en suite bathroom. What else do you need to enjoy your stay in Pokhara? Would stay again in a heartbeat.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were good and waking up to to the snow covered mountains was wonderful. The hotel is situated near the beginning of the Lakeside tourist area but it is an easy walk through "the strip"!
