      A great place to rest and relax after trekking”

      The bed is comfortable. Toilet is very clean and they provide hot shower, which is all you need the most after few days of trekking under very cold weather. The place is quite remote from the main street but the lake view make it worth. Never fail to locate nice and cheap/average price restaurant around this hotel area. The quilts were found stains. Staff took immediate action to replace the stained quilts after complaint was made.

      This is more hotel than backpackers. Excellent large rooms with great decor. Comfy beds. Friendly staff and great location. If you’ve been roughing it in budget backpackers, for a few extra pounds, treat yourself to a stay here. You won’t regret it.
