After two and half weeks of intensive travelling and sightseeing in Nepal and Bhutan, this was an excellent place to stay and rest before the long journey home. The room was magnificent and the whole hotel steeped in recent history. It is a very interesting story of how the hotel came about. It was a dream of a young man to save his heritage when he saw the old pillars and wooden windows being destroyed. They started with 2 rooms and now a wonderful peaceful hotel in the middle of a bustling city. Where possible they have kept to the Nepalise architecture but the bathrooms are modern and excellent.The owners do an amazing amount of work with the local communities and are involved in various educational charities. Met the Owners who are very humble and Mrs Ambica Dwarika is a very inspirational 85 year old LADY who still works tirelessly with charities and the main runining of the hotel is left to her daughter and grandson. The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely Spa too. Highly reccomend this jewel in the crown.
