My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 9 days (extended from 5) at The Bruce Chalet. Selected after a lot of research as part of our month travelling in Yunnan, the place is exactly as described by the many positive reviews so I won't repeat. Bruce, his wife and staff are really exceptionally helpful and accommodating (also their guide dog... More

I am very sorry to write this review and to report a less-than-amazing experience at The Bruce Chalet, because the woman on staff who greeted us and helped us during our stay was so pleasant and helpful, and I really wanted to love this place! Her greeting could not have been more thoughtful, and she even brought us some tea... More

A wonderful base for a long weekend in Lijiang. The traditional architecture, comfortable rooms, quiet location, tasty breakfast, cold beers and peanuts, lovely garden, friendly dog and especially the outstanding hospitality made this a terrific base for a three-night stay with my niece and sister. Bruce was also helpful in arranging drivers for short trips into Lijiang and a longer... More

Located a few hundred metres from Shuhe old town Bruce gave us a very friendly welcome and a tasty lunch of dim-sum. He was also very helpful in providing us with information for our onward trip to Tiger Leaping Gorge. The room we had was very luxurious- the nicest place we stayed in in Yunnan- and had a nice private... More

The experience in Bruce Chalet was great. There was a beautiful garden and the rooms were neat and tidy. Although the location is a bit far from the main tourist spot however this is a good opportunity to get rid of the noise and crowd from the city and really enjoy yourself and relax in Lijiang. Bruce and his members... More

Bruce Chalet is a charming place with a beautiful garden courtyard and a canal running through it. Fellow travelers we met had sung praises about it and we decided we'd try it out for just one night. We ended up staying 4 nights. Thanks entirely to how at home we felt there (clean rooms, hot showers, electric blankets, a good... More

I really enjoy staying at the Bruce chalet. Apart from the cozy environment, the staff are very nice and helpful. They entertain you with warm hospitality. If I come again, it is no doubt I must choose the Bruce chalet. And it is highly recommended to my friends and other tourists who are going to visit lijiang.

Enjoyed the stay in Bruce Chalet and had a great experience. Room was clean and tidy, bathroom with steady hot water, laundry service available. It is relaxing to sit in the garden and enjoy the view of Jade Dragon snow mountain. Buffet breakfast was delicious. Homemade dumplings is must-eat. Bruce is friendly and his advice was helpful. He provided us... More

We booked our stay at Bruce Chalet based largely on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. This place is terrific. Obviously, it is not a luxurious hotel, but it is a charming inn with a superb service offered. Location is good, close to Shuhe old town and away from crowds and loud noise of Lijiang old town;...
