“Beautiful setting but basic rooms”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

It's quite a climb up to this hotel from the road. And rooms are spread out in the extensive grounds. So you need to be fit and able to stay here.

But the flowers are superb. Hundreds and hundreds of pot plants on the restaurant terrace, in front of the rooms, everywhere. Quite superb. Someone has put a great deal of effort into the grounds.

And the view.......stunning.

Rooms were spacious but basic. Limited hot water, no telephone, no hair dryer. But there was complimentary wifi which was a welcome bonus.

All in all, a good stay.

Excellent resort with concept like village. All cottage are scattared. rooms are very specious. Since this resort is approx 100 ft up from the main entrance, you need to walk. If you are travelling with your parents or kids then not a good option

Room Tip: there is less varity in buffed system else other foods are quiteexpensive

Comfortable rooms, OK food, very clean and well cared for property, great views when the air is clear. Overpriced for sure.

We stayed at this hotel during a Travelsphere trip to India & Nepal. The resort is a 2 hour drive outside of Kathmandu, and in the foorhills of the Himalayas.
The accomodation is in the form of lodges, usually 4 to a block. The accomodation is quite basic, but the surroundings are wonderful. Hot water can be a bit hit & miss, but if you listen to the staff as to when its on, then its fine. Food is traditional Nepalese, and good. We had a cultural show from the local people which was very enjoyable. We also took a walk up to the local school & met some of the local children, who were wonderful - really happy that they had running drinking water as opposed to worrying where they can plug their xbox into.

Overall - loved it here, having a beer watching the sun going down.

Recently stayed here while on a Tour of Nepal. The views and the Gardens are superb but the hotel is filthy, especially the bathrooms, and the service is abysmal. The Staff here tried to overcharge all of our Group on our bills. They were also slow and lazy and not helpful. As I say the views are wonderful but stay somewhere else!

We stayed at the Dhulikhel Mountain Resort for one night. The strong hot showers were a relief for us after a long day's hike from Nagarkot and being covered in dust and dirt. Rooms are very clean and large windows give you a great view of the mountains. You can tell a lot of care goes into this resort because of the well-taken care of gardens. It is a beautiful oasis that reminds me of gardens back home in Victoria, BC. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Excellent gourmet dinner and breakfast served. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Dhulikhel Mountain Resort before and after a trek into the Kathmandu Valley. The resort rooms were clean and simple and have spectacular mountain views. While the resort is near a busy road, it was quiet at night, and I slept well. The power does go out frequently, so be prepared and carry a flashlight. Fortunately, the hot water is run on a diesel generator and is not affected by the power outages.

The restaurant food was tasty, and service was polite. Be sure to have breakfast on the outside patio. The view is lovely.
