As in the name this is a cottage-style chalet run as a B&B. It is not in Lijiang (good) but about 10-15 min walk from Shuhe old town, itself about 15-20 min drive to Lijiang. Modern comforts such as wi-fi, heated bed, heat-lamps in the shower and standby driver to airport, Lijiang or even Shuhe old town. Cozy, quiet, lovely... More

We found this treasure in Lijiang area. It was comfortable, beautiful, clean and was tops for customer service! Shuhe was a short walk away and a fun place to walk, shop and eat. In the evening in the square locals danced their traditional Naxi folk dances.....not for the tourists, but for their own enjoyment. Whatever we needed Julie had for... More

I like the location because it is admist the village and a short walking distance from Shuhe, a more charming town than Lijiang. The place and services are friendly, but unpretentious. Any shortfall is more than compensated by the cheerful and helpful disposition of the staff, especially Juli, the manager. I am planning to return next May/June. P/S: This place... More

The place is a short, scenic walk to Shuhe Old Town. Shuhe Old Town is a shopping area so if you are into shopping, Bruce Chalet is a good location. The hotel itself is pretty and has cute rooms. The internet works most the time and in most places - it's just slow. The big negative for me was I... More

Shuhe Old Town is a small and lovely place. We loved it more than Dali or Shaxi. It takes a 10 min walk from Bruce Chalet to the village. Unfortunately, we did not meet Bruce but Julie looked after us very well. The rooms are comfortable but the beds were (as in most of the guesthouses we stayed in China)... More

It was my third time to Lijiang. Dayan old town was busy and crowded, Shuhe was less crowded and commercial. The Bruce Chalet locates in the small village outside Shuhe old town, surrounded by farmers' families and farms, perfect for a peaceful holidays. The room is big with huge double bed, with beautiful snow mountain view. The staffs are very... More

I enjoyed my stay here at Bruce Chalet. Julie and other staff were very friendly and I certainly like Shuse over Lijiang. Especially during the summer holiday Lijiang just gets to crowded, Shuse as well but a lot less. It's about a 5-10 minute walk to Shuhe, make sure you take the road on the left, otherwise you might end... More

Bruce Chalet is very charming. It's on the outskirts of Shuhe old town. From the beginning to the end of our stay we were looked after very well by the manager Julie, she made us feel at home and even helped when I felt unwell. We stayed in a second floor room with a double bed and a private balcony... More

First, this property should not be listed under Lijiang, but Shuhe, as has been noted. That said, Shuhe is wonderful. As for the hotel, it is good value for the money but be prepared for dogs barking constantly all day and most of the night. You are in a village and many homes have dogs for protection, so they bark... More
