Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are large and very spacious. The bathroom has a bathtub (soaking tub) plus a full sized shower. There are plenty of electrical outlets. Their laundry service is very good and reasonably priced. The food is basic Bhutanese and is very good. The vegetables are home grown.

Both are dinners were meat free but we scarcely noticed due to the variety and flavours. Breakfast was delicious both days with buckwheat pancakes, homemade bread, jams, locally honey... More

Very tasty food, both at breakfast and dinner. Fresh organic vegetables, home made jams and bread, buckwheat pancakes, complimentary local alcohol,... Service in Bhutan is friendly everywhere, but Rinchenling even beats this. The wood stove, both in the room as in the restaurant, added up to the charm of the place.

What a great to stay at when visiting Bumthang. The rooms were very nice and big. The kids appreciated the living room with its Bukhari - specially on 31 December !! The food was very good and the homemade strawberry jam excellent! We will of course not forget the typical hot stone bath. When cold outside, it's the perfect place... More

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
