I loved staying at this place. The rooms were very nice and all the food in the dining room was great. Our group was all over Bhutan in a two week period and I found the hosts here the most friendly and helpful. The bathroom was nice, but very cold while we were visiting. I will definitely stay here again... More

This guesthouse is laid in cottages. The rooms are quite large with a bathroom and a sitting area. The room had a wood heater as well as electric heater. The guest-house has a dinning room where meals are served. It is out of town so getting in to shop means that you have to walk for about 15-20 minutes.

When we first arrived in Bumthang we had 2nights at another hotel, then were moved on our third night to Gongkhar Guesthouse. I wished we'd had our other two nights here! We just loved our stay here - so much so, that we were due to come back to Bumthang and stay at the other hotel and we took it... More

We loved staying at Gongkhar Guesthouse. We each had a spacious room with views out windows on three sides. The room was large with a sitting area and wood stove as well as private bathroom. I loved the artistic designs on the woodwork and the beautiful woven bedspreads. Wood floor and windows, and drapes of traditional Bhutanese fabric. Breakfast was... More

The room was lovely, all natural timber and the windows were amazing. I loved having a fire in the room and a heater as well. I walked into town in the afternoon and it was a good walk and a nice wee town to walk around. The food was ok but nothing amazing. One thing I didn't like about this... More

We stayed here in August 2013 for five nights. We were the only guest in their hotel during all our five days there. So we cannot really comment on the noise level. We stayed in the second floor room. The room itself was quite huge with a separate sitting area and bedroom area. The king size bed was quite comfortable.... More

This Lodge is lovely. We had a first floor (upstairs) room and it was really large, light, with a sleeping area and a sitting area in front of a wood burning stove, with plenty of wood supplied. Lots of hot water and a very comfortable bed, the rooms have an attractive, understated style. Better still it had 3 aspects so... More

the Gongkhar Guesthouse is very special. the rooms are delightfully comfortable, the grounds are planted with scented flowers, the views are spectacular, the prayer flags whip in the breeze, the people are friendly, the prices are fine, the walk into Jakar is easy and pleasant, and the walk back is even nicer because of that feeling of 'coming home' to...
