Being the best lodge on the EBC trek is nothing to boast about; with the exception of a few hotels in Namche and several of the YMH sites. Every tea house is shocking, thin foam mattresses, terrible insulation, unclean toilets and poor food.
The rooms at Rivendale lodge do have electric blankets and there are power sockets in the room. However the shower is cold and the toilet smells terrible.
When we checked is we were told 15USD which is approx three times what you pay at other lodges. Upon check out we were presented with a room rate of $50USD - totally overpriced. Total cost of stay, 1 night was 92 USD - including a terrible breakfast and dinner, an outrageous $5 for a snickers, $6 for WiFi and $2 for a single toilet roll.
Worst value hotel in the world!
