After a long hard drive to Punakha especially with all the road blocks due to the road repairs being undertaken it was a relief to reach this hotel by the river. The rooms are basic but comfortable and the staff are lie all places in Bhutan wonderful. The food was ok but the walk by the river in the evening... More

This hotel is in a lovely location overlooking the river and is away from the town. We had room 301 which is on the top floor and takes up the whole of the floor so was very large - we had no complaints about the room although the TV hardly worked for all the time we were there if this... More

The hotel is located right by the river, a few kilometres away from Punakha. There's the small town of Khuruthang across the road, where there are a few stores and restaurants. The room we got was tiny and had uneven flooring. The bathroom was clinically plain, and the furniture was extremely basic. TV did not work during our stay, and... More

This hotel was a let down during the trip in Bhutan. Room far too small, dirsty walls and floor were not that clean either. The bathroom was incredibly basic. Great location but I would not recommend this hotel

Basic hotel but room excellent. Light your own wood burning stove in your room with the help of the staff. Hot water bottles placed in your bed for you. Food is buffet style but good and bar serves a good selection. Try and get the room at the end of a block with 3 great big picture windows looking out... More

This is a very basic no frills room but has everything we needed. It was comfortable and the bathroom was serviceable and clean and so was the room. We had a river view. Internet is available at the restaurant but that can get busy and slow when a lot of guests are there with their laptops. Also, after dinner, the... More

We stayed here as part of our tour. We were given a very small room initially - and the bathroom sink leaked. My husband asked if we could have a river view room - and moved across the hall to a large suite with a nice sitting area overlooking the river. The room looked quite clean - although I found...

Located on the river the hotel affords great views of the town and surrounding mountains. The room we had was small. The rooms facing the river were three times the size (we complained to our tour operator about our room assignment). The rooms are clean and well maintained. Taking a shower was a challenge since the water temperature went from... More

Newish hotel with decent sized rooms although beds typically Bhutanese firm. River nearby is attractive. Receptionist very helpful and good fun. Restaurant OK but much cheaper food in Friends restaurant in town - some of the staff ate there as well we noticed. Mainly caters for large groups of tourists who typically arrive late and leave next day. Breakfast buffet... More
