We were a group of three families on a holiday at Bhutan and stayed at Rinchenling Lodge for 2 nights. What should I say....It was indeed a fabulous stay!....The highest point in our trip. The lodge is very comfortable and very well managed by the family which owns it. The hot stone bath was very traditional and refreshing. The food... More

I stayed three nights in Rinchenling. The room was beautiful cottage style with both iron stove and electric heating. They always made the fire for you in the evening and if you needed help with it any other time they had a sign you could hang outside of the door. The service was very attentive and friendly. The best part... More

We stayed for three nights in April at Rinchenling and loved the bukari and the friendliness the most. Tenzing made time for us every day, always enquiring about our activities, our home, our comfort. This family run hotel is a gem in a gorgeous country. Enjoyed the homemade plum jam from a tree in sight of our room particularly. They... More

This Feb I travelled alone to Bhutan via Lovely Bhutan Travel's arrangement. In Bumthang, I stayed in Rinchenling Lodge for three nights. I like their excellent services and warm hotel layout. Expecially, I enjoyed a lot of its quite and peaceful atmosphere around this lodge environment each morning.

Extra spice available on request. Staff brilliant could not do enough for you. Its a bit out of town but close to a small friendly village and some amazing... More

I loved this place! Unfortunately I only stayed for one night but I wish it would have been more. The in-room bukari (wood stove) heats up the room in no time at all and there is even a backup electric heater you can turn on at night so you wake up to a warm room. The bathroom does not have...

We stayed in one of the suite room which looks like a temple! Interesting and very nice decor in the room. The room is newly renovated and the bed is comfortable. There is no tv in the room and Wi-Fi connection is rather weak. Wi-Fi at the restaurant/bar area is good. Bathroom is clean hot water shower takes a while... More

A cosy atmosphere in this long time family hotel, with a nice garden in the country side. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The clean room we had (in the main building) was rather simple (small and cramped). Probably the (newer) bungalow rooms are better value. The food though is excellent. Also the quarters for drivers/guides were reasonable. The... More

A modest two storey lodge in the local style. We stayed for three nights. The good: - friendly staff, tons of hot water in the shower (good when it is cold!) - it is 5 mins walk to the monastery so you avoid the traffic jams at festival time - omelette with cheese for breakfast The average: - everything else...
