About Us

Gauri Shankar Guest House has been established for many years but has been under Nepali/Western (Australian) Management since April 2006.

The Guest House is ideally situated in the Gauri Ghat area of Lakeside Pokhara, just 150 metres from the main street and Fewa Lake.
The Guest House is a comfortable, peaceful and friendly place set in beautiful shady tropical gardens and its rooftop terraces provide panoramic views of the Annapurna Range.  There are 11 Guest Rooms, all with attached bathrooms (4 with bathtubs). There is 24-hour hot water (solar + electrical back-up).
The Holy Garden Restaurant/Café (Vegetarian) serves breakfast, lunch/snacks, dinner and drinks. A Chef prepares Daily Specials including soup, pasta, sweet and savoury pies/tarts, salads, dips, breads, cakes and desserts. For your enjoyment, the Café and separate Guest Lounge contain a wide selection of books and other reading material, games, puzzles, movies, TV and DVD/CD player.
Extremely high standards of cleanliness and hygiene are maintained at all times and safety is a priority, eg. monthly check of electrical systems; fire extinguishers on the premises.
Nearby facilities include many cafés and restaurants, cybercafés, travel agencies, boat hire, bike hire, trekking equipment shops, bookshops, souvenir shops etc.  The main Lakeside shopping/nightclub area is a 7-minute walk away.
