I stayed at mountain house for approximately 10 nights and enjoyed the stay! It is off the road so it was extremely quiet. The bathroom was clean and fully functional! Although, the beds were a thick foam mattress which become relatively uncomfortable after a long time! This being the only negative comment about the hotel, unsure of the other rooms!

We stayed here 10 nights in total, before and after trekking. This place is clean, has comfortable rooms with wonderful hot showers and is close enough to lakeside central for an easy stroll but far enough for peace and tranquillity! Rooftop has wonderful views of Machapuchare :) The owners are just the most friendly and helpful hosts one can possibly...

As The Mountain House' slogan states, it's "simply the best". We have stayed here previously in 2012 and 2014, and just stayed pre- and post-trek this October and November. The rooms are large and comfortable and very clean, the showers hot, and the owners (Indira, Stan and family) and staff friendly, helpful and kind. Our rooms had a great view...

I stayed five weeks at The Mountain House because of a friend's recommendation. I wouldn't call it a hotel but a home. All the family, specially Indira, treated me like I was another family member since the first day. They treat all their guest very kindly, always offering us some fruit or tea, asking how was our day, talking about...

Stan and Indira made us feel very welcome for our three night stay at The Mountain House. We paid the extra for a room with a view of Fishtail Mountain, this is at the front of the hotel and looks over the street which may be a bit disconcerting for some but didn't bother us. The rooms were clean, the...

Fantastic place to stay. The rooms are big, the owner and his wife are very helpfull. When we arrived during midnight after a delayed bus trip, the owner had been waiting for us. We could enter a room immediately. That was really the best service we could imagine at that moment. Thanks again!!!
