Restoration and conservation of this traditional Newari Town house required keeping the low ceilings and the overall sense of proportion and scale. The practical inclusion of comfortable and clean showers and toilet facilities are achieved but they are not ensuite.
The current Lonely Planet tells of ‘A beautifully restored Newari mansion. . .elegant, timbered rooms look right out over the mountains. . . . the welcome, the accommodation and meals are all of a high standard’. And, the guidebook includes Bandipur in its “favourite journey through Nepal”.
