Stayed 20 and 21 April 2014.
Booked in person a couple of weeks before we needed the accommodation.
Shechen guesthouse is a real gem, and only a 5 minute walk from the Stupa. You need a torch at night, but the lane leading from the Stupa is very safe.
If arriving on foot you'll need directions from the main entrance to the Stupa site, and it'll take 10 minutes by foot. By taxi, you'll need to come in at the rear entrance to the guesthouse, otherwise the taxi driver will drop you at the main entrance to the Stupa site.
The accommodation is set around beautiful tended gardens, on ground and first floor.
In one corner of the garden is the restaurant, which is open all day, and serves up terrific food.
Our double room (Room 101) was clean, with a perfectly adequate wet-room. Sleeping wasn't a problem, even though the Shechen Monastery is fairly close to the accommodation.
Breakfast was included, and you can eat it in the beautiful garden or in the restaurant.
I could have spent all our time sat in the garden, it really is serene setting.
Staff were cheerful and smart. The guard on the gate arranged our taxi to the airport.
Cost for 2 nights for a double including breakfast was 3,200 rupees (£11 a night).
The Stupa site is a magical place, best enjoyed at dawn or dusk, but it's great all the time.
Lovely restaurant, with great food and charming staff, just off the Stupa, is Flavors.
Would we stay there again? Absolutely!
