We thoroughly enjoyed our stay though it does seem that the hotel is starting to show its age. Still, everything was as expected and the staff were consistently effective. Food might be considered expensive by some as they tend to serve more like a resort.

            Amazing views of the Annapurna rangeMy wife and I were on honeymoon and wanted to stay at a place memorable. Heard that Fishtail is one of the 1000 things to see before we die. It was not overrated. But you need to be staying at the recently renovated cottage to feel it. One thing i am disappointed is the constant power outage but that is mainly the country's poor infrasturcture pronlem.

            The hotel location is quiet and away from the noise of the main shopping area but still near enough. However some of the facilities in the rooms seem to be dated and needs upgrading - the shower head installed here is of a lower standard than other cheaper hotels, the bedside tables with light switch was loose.

            Included in "1000 places to see before you die", FTL is truly a delight. Located in the middle of Phewa lake the hotel can only be accessed by boat which is fun. It has some of the most amazing views of Annapurna and Macchapuchre peaks. Very attentive staff which was a big help as we were travelling with our 16 month old son. Good food - try the Nepali Royal Thali and the FTL cocktail. Lovely gardens and comfy large rooms.

            We enjoyed the quiet surrounding of the hotel. The view from the room, the garden ...really very nice. We stayed in Palm court and when we checked out I wrote a comment that they should keep hair dryer in these rooms and within 24 hours they promptly replied to me that they will provide hair dryers in those rooms - which was good. The only negative thing about this hotel is the food in the restaurant was really expensive - they should think about the price.

            We arrived from the madness of Kathmandu to find the lake, the pontoon and the relax in the little island of the Fish Tail lodge. The staff were extremely helpful, both in arranging paragliding or other tours or in arranging rooms. We requested a 2 rooms for an extra day and it wasn't a problem at all. Nice breakfast and great buffet dinners especially if the fire is on, very cosy and generally a beautiful hotel with great rooms, atmosphere and location. On a clear day the views of the lake and the fishtail mountain are absolutely stunning!

            Great place (Phokara) and great hotel!!”

            Best hotel in Phokara

            We arrived from Kathmandu and its craziness into this haven of peace and beauty... with a great view of the fishtail mountain and the Pokhara lake, what an absolutely gorgeous and relaxing place to be. Food is good, especially the breakfast and dinner buffets and the fire inside the dining hall is absolutely idyllic, especially in a winter's night! They do close the dining hall early (10 PM) but the travel desk and reception people are so helpful! Thoroughly recommended and definitely the best quiet hotel in town!
