As the Lonely Planet says 'it oozes historical charm.' And indeed, as a former 'palace' of a regional governor it certainly does with steep staircases, creaking floors and ill-fitting doors - it does. I had what I can only describe as a garret room on the first floor - en-suite

We stayed 4 nights. Our room at the front was massive, though immediately above the reception was prone to be a bit noisy in the evening. There were steep steps up to the corridor on which our rook was located. Be aware that one of the other so-called double rooms on the same

Felt like a privilege to stay here. After a trek, this was luxury with comfortable beds, good restaurant, a beautiful old building, helpful staff at reception and a great situation above the town. Walls are thin - noisy Indian couple with "different opinions" in the next room

Yes. Your 2 year kid can definitely be there. Breakfast, included or not, I have no clue as I was in a sponsored group. Rooms are very cozy and comfortable. You can access the Tigers Nest Monastery from here, which is one of the absolute best places to visit in a Bhutan. You could also visit the Dzongs and soak yourself in one of the hot stone baths.

There are rooms on the ground floor as well. You can opt for it. You need to walk for 40m to the restaurant.

Probably below freezing, icy. Check Accuweather and weather websites for details.

We had the baths to ourselves and asked them to open the curtains so we could take in the view of the mountains. Having it to ourselves was definitely nice. I'm not sure it would be as nice with strangers in the room too. The hot stones were seriously hot, so they gave is cold water to help regulate the water temp which was helpful. I can't remember the cost. I'd recommend it if you can have it to yourself
