We ended up finding a room at a really nice spot called River View which had two rooms open that were perfect for our group. After tossing our bags in the room we headed to the cafe for some dinner. This place had a huge patio overlooking the Parvati River so we grabbed a table outside and ordered plenty of food and tea. I will never forget eating a delicious dinner and sipping on hot tea with the soothing sounds of the river in the background. It was a beautiful moment and the first of many that would happen on this trip. After dinner I headed back to the room to freshen up because at this point I had lost track of the last time I showered or changed my clothes. I felt revived after a change of clothes and we made some drinks, ordered more food, and enjoyed a beautiful night at the hotel.
The people who run the place are really nice and if you try and bargain, they will offer you good accommodation at reasonable rates.
