8/10 Very good

8/10 Very good

Quiet location, great mountain views
Many of the rooms have mountain views which I would recommend. All have a balcony and there is a nice garden area in the centre of the complex. The location is a little distance from the main tourist strip with most of the bars and restaurants but easily walkable and contributes to the peaceful atmosphere. There is also a rooftop balcony which gives a stunning panorama of the Annapurna range and a wonderful sunrise. Breakfast is buffet style and offers a good selection. Staff excellent and very helpful Overall very good value and would recommend .

Very happy returning guest
I have stayed at Lakeside Retreat 6 times over a two month period. Each time I am warmly welcomed and my room has provided all the comforts I need. The hotel grounds are beautiful, it is quietly set back from the road, and the staff go out of their way to make my visits comfortable. I couldn't ask for more.

4/10 Fair

Ikke som på billederne
Deres standardværelser er meget under standard. Det er slidt og beskidt. Efter opgradering til deluxe var det ok. Servicen var middel og ikke særlig fleksible.

6/10 Good

Ikke nogen stor oplevelse
Lakeside virker mere slidt end man kan se på billederne. Madrasserne er nok de hårdeste vi har oplevet i Nepal. Servicen og rengøring på det jævne. Vi havde planer om at blive flere nætter men valgte at rykke til andet hotel (Sacred Valley Inn) efter 1. Overnatning - det var både bedre og væsentligt billigere
