Spread over three floors, the 64 rooms are spacious, simple yet adequately furnished, and feature either a balcony or veranda. The hotel's facilities include a restaurant serving Nepalese and international...
Gaun Ghar is a delightful, traditional Newari village house that has been converted into a small hotel. The 15 simply furnished rooms with en suite facilities overlook either the main square with ancient temples and quaint buildings or the striking mountains. Accommodation at the Gaun Ghar includes all meals and is served either in the small terrace with gorgeous mountain views or in the dining room. The well-trained local chefs prepare a selection of Nepalese and western dishes using largely fresh produce that is available locally.
This converted hotel retains much of its traditional architecture, which means the rooms and corridors feature narrow, low doorways. Despite erratic power supply, the Gaun Ghar does not use electric generators: torches are provided in the rooms. As this is not a full-service hotel, special dietary requirements need to be requested at the time of booking...

Perched on a terraced hillside overlooking the picturesque village of Nuwakot, The Famous Farm is a simple, atmospheric, converted farmhouse that retains much of its original Newari design and character. The 13 individually decorated, simply furnished rooms are spread across three buildings, which are set around a courtyard. Except for two rooms, all others have en suite facilities.
Accommodation at the Famous Farm includes all meals, which are usually served in the courtyard. The resident chef prepares a variety of Nepalese homecooked meals with mostly fresh, local produce. There is also a small selection of western dishes. Facilities at this hotel include a cosy dining room (this is only used when the weather does not permit the use of the courtyard) and a bar that serves beer and house wine. Special dietary requirements need to be requested at the time of booking.
