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"!

Hotel is run by a family who have been in the hotel business for a good time, having run large hotels in London and this shows here, everything worked and it was clean and tidy with helpful staff, even the breakfast was plentiful with a good selection, a rarity we found in Nepal and Northern India.

We stayed here after a trek for a few nights (over Christmas), this is an extremely comfortable hotel with friendly staff and a delicious breakfast buffet. Good location next to Fewa lake and near to plenty of shops and restaurants.

No matter how beautiful your property, if the service fails, you fail. And sadly the service at Lakeside does not live up to the standard that one would expect from such a well-appointed hotel. There is lots of good: the hotel is an oasis of calm, the property and gardens are well-maintained, the décor is tasteful and the rooms and...

I visit this place about twice a year and have watched it metamorphise into the beautiful hotel it is now.

The Lakeside Retreat is set a little back off the main drag, so quiet whilst still being easily accessible to shops and restaurants. the rooms are set in spacious grounds - rather south=east Asian style - and are very pleasant with nice en suites. The reception area is roofed but otherwise open - a tribute to Pokhara's climate, I guess....

Stunning. Great location and the rooms are all dotted around as small villas offering great views of the mountains. Swimming pool being built as I stayed so when finished this place will be even better. Walking distance to the lake across the road and countless restaurant and bars and shops all within 100 yards

Only downside of that room is that it is above the area where tour groups are hanging, then loading...
