Here are some Reviews and Testimonials HAND written by our Guest on Lodge Guest Book. I loved my time at New Pokhara Lodge, not least because it was so safe and comfortable (especially as I’m a single traveller) but the service and friendliness were exceptional. I particularly liked the fact the room had a bath. The Lodge is in a really great part of town- tucked away, yet only minutes from the main area. The garden is heavenly, as is the view from the rooftop. Kathie Bell Dear Mahendra, I just wanted to thank you for the hospitality that you and your associate, whose name I forget, provided. Many people are interested in Nepal and when I show my photos to them they will be even more interested, if anyone decides on a trip, I promise I will do everything I can to get them to stay at New Pokhara Lodge. Namaste Charlie Campanale USA. New Pokhara Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. We had an extended stay here and it was by far the most pleasant hotel in Nepal. The staff is great and the rooms comfortable and clean. We highly recommend New Pokhara Lodge. Thanks for everything ! Russel & Erin Baker- Oklahoma City, Oklahoma USA. We are two couples from Israel who visited Nepal and stayed also in Pokhara. We want to recommend the New Pokhara Lodge in Pokhara. We stayed for more than an week and enjoyed every day. The services, the smiling faces and the help made our stay in Pokhara to a very pleasant and enjoying time. We loved every day and enjoyed each day more than the former Thanks to Mahendra and his team. TODA RABA Boris and Sylvie Lourie (Rechovot) Baruch and Ruti Globen (Holon) We had a wonderful visit to Nepal. It was made much easier and enjoyable by the New Pokhara Lodge. They were extremely helpful and gave very valuable advice. The Lodge is excellent and a sanctuary after trekking in Annapurna. Thank you and hope to see you again. Paul and Kathryn Tomlinson ( Newbury England ). Thank you for the wonderful service. I felt very comfortable coming to my room everyday as if you was welcomed as a family guest. Thanks to “Dai” for bringing me around Pokhara and making my morning coffee !!! Looking forward to coming back ……. Take care and best of luck !!! Always, Mohana Kanah (Singapore) Our trip to Nepal has been unforgettable and our stay here at New Pokhara Lodge has been wonderful. We enjoyed our walk today with Mahendra all the people here are was very helpful. Thanks to you all ! Anne Robichaud(USA) A Tour Operator in Italy. Over 20 month ago I left Scotland on a round the world bicycle tour. Since the start I have stayed in well over 500 different hotels, guest houses, hostels and other establishments (and also one bus shelter in England). Some of them have been extremely pleasant Places to stay. But I put New Pokhara Lodge at the top of my list. This is an excellent hotel. Both owners and staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. The location is ideal, being very close to lake and yet in its own secluded garden. The rooms are most comfortable and spotlessly clean. When I arrived I intended to stay two or three nights. In the end I have stayed four weeks. William J. Donaldson Edinburgh, Scotland It is the first time we are in Pokhara. Andwe fall in love with it. New Pokhara lodge is the best hotel we had in Nepal. We nearly feel as we are in Germany at home. The staffs are kind and helpful. We don’t like to leave but holiday is over now. Thank you very much for everything. We will come back next year. Birgit & Jorg (Germany) I wish we could have found New Pokhara Lodge & stayed here first in Pokhara. This is small, comfortable, quiet & nice place. The staffs are very friendly. The another good thing was that we felt no pressure from the staff to do anything, or to go through them for anything like trekking & sightseeing. We will recommend our friends. Thank you for everything. Jack and Jackie (USA) Great lodge, hot water, good service, smiling faces so nice to be away from the main road in the peace & quiet. Many thanks. Caroline (UK) For us Pokhara lodge is always like coming home at the end of the trek. Dear Mahendra you run an excellent operation and make us so welcome. We look forward returning next year. Thank you to all your team for warm welcome and excellent service. Medline and Terry Morgan (UK) What a welcoming place to come back after a long trek. Lovely garden and very comfortable room, Treated so well by all the people here, will come back as soon as I can. Elizabeth, (Boston Ma, USA) We are having a wonderful stay in Pokhara and in this lodge. The facilities and garden are very well maintained and the staffs are courteous and helpful. It really is a tranquil oasis. ED & Karin, (New York USA) A hugely enjoyable stay, The guesthouse is clean, well maintained and peaceful. The price is reasonable with hot showers and Television in all rooms. The garden is beautiful and we had a thoroughly relaxing 10 days here. Thanks for all your assistance. John & Kay Burnley (UK) I just wanted to thank you for all your help and hospitality whilst we were in Pokhara. New Pokhara Lodge is certainly one of the nicest places I have stayed in during my many trips to Nepal and I very much hope to be able to come back again in the spring. Lucinda Squires (UK) It’s now seven years ago since I first brought a trekking groups here to the New Pokhara Lodge, and I have been bringing groups ever since. I must say that it’s probably one of the best hotels in its category in the whole region. The staff and the two brothers Jagan and Mahendra are always helpful, service is great and location is unbeatable. From over hundred people that I have brought here. I have never heard anything but praise for the place. Enjoy your stay. Mike Tandy (Group leader UK) This is the third time we came here. We feel very welcome and it was very nice to stay at such a quite place. Thank you very much!!! .Caroline & Niels (Holland) A good base for Medical elective students working at Manipal Teaching Hospital Pokhara and The Western Regional Hospital Pokhara . On the main bus routes whilst also being in Lakeside Pokhara. Many thanks for your kindness + hospitality over the past 6 weeks. New Pokhara Lodge has been a wonderful, relaxing place to stay. Thanks again Neil and Claire. I was so happy here that although I had planned to stay a fortnight I remained for nearly a month. It is good to know that the water and food are safe, with no fear of illness. I enjoyed the peace of the attractive garden and looked with wonder as from the roof I watched dawn light up the snows of the Annapurna Range and Machhapuchere. The staff are always friendly and attentive to our every need and the rooms comfortable and clean. Thank you for a wonderful time. I will recommend New Pokhara Lodge to my friends. Peta Craven ( 77 Richwood park, Beare Green Dorking, Surrey RH5 4PR UK. My husband and I stayed here over christmas. Set back up a quiet road, 2 minutes walk from the lake this family run lodge was fantastic. Good rooms some with mountain views, roof terrace for sunbathing and mountain views, pretty garden for a cold beer and the nicest most helpful owner and staff in Nepal!! Everything can be organised from the lodge at good rates. Peaceful, clean and really great value for money. .dogonastring Uk My wife and I began planning our 6 week vacation in India and Nepal several months before we left at the end of October, 2008. One place we knew that we would want to spend some time was in Pokhara, but since I hadn’t been there for 40 years I had no idea what to expect or where to stay. The New Pokhara Lodge’s website made everything easy for me! I stumbled on it early in my internet search and kept coming back to it. The site offered great pictures and information so booking a room there made sense to me. And I’m glad it did. The Lodge is everything it advertises itself to be. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the views of Machapuchre are spectacular! The garden where we ate a delicious breakfast every morning is great too. Look for the poinsettias and sacred basil (tulsi)! The best part of The New Pokhara Lodge, though, are the people. Mahendra, the owner, his wife and daughters and Humraj all went out of their way to make us comfortable and welcome. They made us feel like we were a part of their family. They gave us great advice and helped us brush up on our Nepali too! During our next trip to Nepal we plan to spend more time in Pokhara and all of it with Mahendra, his family and Humraj. Staying there was the best part of our adventure! Don & Marilyn North Carolina USA My husband and I stayed here over christmas. Set back up a quietroad, 2 minutes walk from the lake this family run lodge was fantastic. Good rooms some with mountain views, roof terrace for sunbathing and mountain views, pretty garden for a cold beer and the nicest most helpful owner and staff in Nepal!! Everything can be organised from the lodge at good rates. Peaceful, clean and really great value for money. from Trip advisor I went to Pokhara with my 2 kids (6 and 8 year olds) and really loved this hotel. First and most of all, it is a family-run hotel and they were all very helpful and friendly but not in an obtrusive kind of a way. Second, the hotel was very clean and comfortable and we especially liked relaxing in the courtyard. Third, it has a good location near everything but a little off the main road to be quiet and peaceful. Finally, considering the price, cleanliness, location, view and friendly atmosphere I am very happy that we were able to find the New Pokhara Lodge and would really recommend it as a great place to stay. from Trip advisor I stayed in New Pokhara Lodge last 11-13 October 2009 and all I have are praises and commendations to the hotel and its owner! This quaint lodge near Lakeside (one of the prime attractions in Pokhara, Nepal) is a family-owned accommodation. What I think made my visit more memorable is that I was treated like another member of the family. I booked a package thru their website and immediately received a prompt reply from its owner – Mahendra. My room was spacious and was kept clean all the time. I am more amazed at how the toilet and bath was kept sparkling clean! As to the tours/treks, Mahendra arranged my taxi pick-up and guide going to the World Peace Stupa. He even brought me on a motorcycle ride up in Sarangkot View point to get a glimpse of the sunset. But of all these arrangements, I was most happy when he searched for me the location of my church in Pokhara. Mahendra even took the effort to bring me to the only Catholic Church in that city! His family is also very nice and friendly. I say it was really a very memorable and wonderful experience. Given another chance, I would definitely stay again (even longer) next time. Well done!!
