We a river on a cold evening and proceeded to get colder. Although the rooms have heaters, it's not enough to warm the place up. Our bathroom windows didn't fit the frames so the temperature was on a par with outside. Although our room had hot water many did not. The food was basic and served in the lobby, an area without heating so was cold before we sat down. The location is opposite the monastery however, it's not worth suffering the cold for when you can transfer there the following day.

Hard to get there but is worthwhile. We were greeted by good scenery, every photos taken were wallpapers for your pc desktop. Only basic needs were given, no wifi provided. Lights only activated after 5pm to next day 5am. At night limited hot water for bathing. Thus we recommend bringing dry bath stuffs, own towels and good torchlight. Other than that the breakfast was good, the service was also superb and the staffs were very responsive. We would like thanks Thinley Wangchuk for taking care of our needs and be our chef for breakfast.

After 7 hours on the most terrible road ever it was a bit of a let down. No luxuries but clean and friendly. The electricity came back on shortly after our arrival thank goodness. The village had been without for 5 days. I can't imagine how we would have survived without heating. Anyone visiting Bhutan I would recommend to stay in Paro and Thimphu where you can See everything there is to see. At the huge daily minimum cost to enter Bhutan it is not worth driving for two days on a horrendous road @ us $ 250.00 p.p.p.d. A total waist of money. The food served to most O/S visitors is "tourist food", mass produced and everywhere the same for both lunch and dinner. After a few days it made us gag and some of us could not stomach the food anymore and lived on fresh fruit only. Bhutan , "the happiest people in the world" is a brillliant advertising ploy. The government takes 65% of the money spent by tourist our guide told us, hence there is not much left for the travel agents to offer the tourists. Unless they lower their enormous visa costs I would not recommend Bhutan.

This place is not trying to be anything but a monastery guesthouse, and it won us over. Yes, it is a bit rough around the edges, but the staff do try to make the guests feel welcome. They even had a fire going outside for some of the guests, we could have joined, but needed a bit of a rest before dinner. The things that you can say about this guesthouse is: CLEAN - you know a bathroom has been scrumbed when you can feel it with your feet BED - another excellent mattress FOOD - home cooking as it should be If is is good enough for the King of Bhutan, then it ABSOLUTELY good enough for us.

Rooms among most basic we had in Bhutan but reasonable, clean, hot water in shower, etc. Food average, service friendly, no wifi or TV. But very close to monastery with wonderful prayers audible during festival which I loved, although some people had trouble sleeping. I got up early to take pictures in the mist and came across a public blessing occurring which was so moving. Good to check this out if your timing is correct.
