"Bandipur was the height of my trip to Nepal, a beautiful, quiet town, with a tourist infrastructure, but without a "touristy" feeling, and the Old Inn..."

Such an amazing stay We loved every minute of our stay at The Old Inn and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Bandipur. The view is stunning, the rooms are really cosy and have hot water, the inn has a nice atmosphere and the staff are so nice and helpful (shout out to Vicas and Sagar for making our stay all the more special!) It is worth noting that not all rooms have en-suite bathrooms, so just be sure to doublecheck if that’s something you’d like to have. We did have our own bathroom in our room but checked out the shared facilities, and they were well-maintained throughout our stay.

An extraordinary building in an amazing location”

Beautiful architecture and good food in a vibrant location. The perfect place to break the Kathmandu - Pokhara bone shaking journey. If the mornings are clear it is worth making the effort to climb the hill past the monastry to view the sunrise on the eastern half of the Annapurna range.

Memorable stay ”

We were on honeymoon. We came from Kathmandu by hired car but we were not informed how to park the car. So we called the hotel phone but nobody picked up. Then, a nice drunk pedestrian came and help us with the luggage up to the hotel, after having to get off the car. The building was so charming, people in all the villages were super friendly, and ambience was very quiet at night. We used laundry service but there was no rate so it was up to us to decide. I suggest the hotel staff to have a price list so that we can feel easy to use the service. Overall this was a great experience we want to have again!! Dhannyabhad!

Try to get a northern view if you can. Pedestrian only street but they will go to the road with you and bring back your bags. Perhaps the most interesting little hotel we’ve ever stayed at.

Very special hotel. Lovely view. An ancient and beautiful architecture. Good taste design. But ... the room was not clean. Towels smell bad. Because structure, inconvenience. No fan or air conditioner. During the day it is hot. A reasonable breakfast and nothing more. Overall experience.

If you are not part,of a tour group they don't want to invest in you”

Very overpriced and what you pay via agoda is a lot more then the actual room charges if you walk in and ask. Manager was truely awful and was only interested in his large tour groups. Didn't have time for others staying there. We had no water in our bathroom and we were made to feel like it was our fault. They offered to give us another room but the flush didn't work on the toilet and we would have to use a bucket. I refused the room. The amount we were paying really made this unsatisfactory. On the second day we told them we still had no water and they moved us to another room. No help with our bags, no apology. The manager/ owner really spoilt our stay. Other staff were very nice and the food was good but again overpriced. I had read another review which suggested you should check your bill carefully, and on check out I queried the bill and it went down by nearly a quarter. There are many lovely, far cheaper places to stay in Bandipur, this is not worth the money.

Traditional style, staff service, food

Simply a wonderful stay at this beautiful and traditionally modeled hotel. Don't let the 2-star rating steer you away as it is a fantastic place to stay with great food and service in Bandipur. If you enjoy more rustic hotel stays and/or don't need all of the modern services that so many believe are essential on vacation, this is the perfect place for you.

Utterly charming”

Beautifully rustic, incredible location, excellent staff

So, first of all, it's worth noting the few negatives: 1) The door sills are pretty short, so it's easy to bump your head. 2) The place can be pretty drafty, so it gets pretty cold December through February. For instance, the windows have traditional shutters, with panes that are about two inches apart and are not movable. That combined with the lack of heaters can make it a bit nippy in the winter. That said, the place is beautiful, serene, and completely in keeping with the magic of Bandipur. The food is very good and very plentiful (we didn't even eat lunch while we were there, since the breakfasts are so filling), and the staff are very kind and accommodating. If you stay at this place, it will certainly be one of the highlights of your trip.
