The hotel room and the view from the room is all good. But when it comes to serving food in their restaurant, like we had the evening buffet and the morning breakfast during our stay at this hotel was the terrible. The food served was terrible in quality and taste. The food quality was even worst than what anyone would give a street animal, and this is the food they are serving their guests, who are human at the end of the day.A big NO to staying here as the location leaves you no choice but to eat breakfast and dinner at this hotel. We stayed at mutiple hotels during our stay at Bhutan, none of the hotels left a bad taste in our heart about the experience. My suggestion: to the hotel would be stop serving buffets if that's too much and you can't maintain the quality of the food served, and switch to al carte. Rather then serving bad quality and tasting meals to the customers. To the visitor looking for a hotel, pls don't opt for this hotel. It's will just make your entire stay in Bhutan sour.

The resort is a modern one with good facilities like wifi and cable tv. Was happy that there was modern heating but it certainly didn’t work well. The bar and restaurant were not bad providing good value.

I found my room here to be reasonably comfortable, and slept very well. The shower was actually pretty good. What I enjoyed most was relaxing on the balcony and admiring the views of Punakha Dzong and the valley; I actually arose at 5am to watch dawn over the mountains and it was spectacular. It's nice to have a few beers on the balcony at the bar and watch the floodlights come on at Punakha Dzong. A few of us also walked down from the hotel to the Dzong in the afternoon, met lots of engaging school kids on this very nice steep walk. Wifi wasn't great, but that's to be expected in Bhutan. The food at dinner and breakfast was acceptable (average to good). The staff delivering/collecting luggage (mostly females) did a great job.

Visitors to Punakha, the old capital of Bhutan, come to see the excellent dzong. Visiting the dzong is time well spent which is more than can be said for this awful hotel. The rooms are comfortable enough but - the evening buffet was very limited in terms of choice and the chicken and pork meat that were offered were basically gristle, fat and bone. Not sure I would have served this to a dog never mind a person - WiFi in rooms was atrocious and kept dropping out - power cut out several times during night - several in our group complained that availability of hot water in showers was very poor - breakfast offering was even worse than dinner if that is possible, and included the greasiest and most unappetising omelette I have ever had anywhere. Even by Bhutan standards this hotel was a disaster.

The balconies in the rooms are perfectly placed to take advantage of the stunning views of the Punakha valley Temple of the Divine Monk. The rooms themselves are spacious and decently furnished. The dinner buffet was the best we’d had on the trip - whilst it was mainly for the western palate there were some local dishes and I loved the chilli cheese - provide more of those dishes instead of the Chinese noodles! I’d definitely stay again if I was in the area

The people of Bhutan are wonderful, the country is spectacular and they are trying to open to tourism for some time now. However, clearly, the tourist are in a way taken advantage by feeding Them really crappy food. Breakfasts are particularly bad. We know it is mostly in the hotels because there are cafes that serve good stuff. K Cafe near Punakha is good. The food at this hotel is horrendous unless you like French fries for breakfast with ketchup, those were good :) This hotel has particularly bad food. Hotel internet is not existent inside the rooms. There is a WiFi conference link that works but unfortunately they refused to give us the password for some strange reason. This was by far the worse hotel of our tour. You may not have a choice of hotels as we did but for those who have a choice, don’t stay here.

Zhingkham Resort overlooks the huge Dzong down below. The rooms are mostly in buildings up above the common areas. You should request a room with a view of the dzong, wish I had known that. The food was typical of what was served in other areas of Bhutan.

Room: Clean, comfortable, and quiet. It's built on a hill, be ready to trek. Each room has a view and private balcony. Food: Breakfast- buffet style, lots of variety to choose from. Breakfast in Bhutan always made us happy. I still can't get over the honey in Bhutan. The milk tea is super too, I think its because of the fresh milk. Dinner- buffet style, we started with soup all around the table, a light soup. The off you go to pick what you wanted to eat. Amenities: TV, hair dryer, free bottles of water, coffee maker with coffee and tea, mosquito repellent plug, free wi-fi but we had a hard time connecting from our room, power went out several time during the night as we were settling in but nothing too concerning. Verdict: Power outage made it kind of hard to shower and dry hair, perhaps a different room would have better wi-fi. But overall we liked the place and wouldn't mind going back.

Simple accommodation on the hillside above Punakha. Great view of the dzong, which is lit at night. Friendly staff make this isolated outpost work well for the traveler. Room was plainly furnished but clean. Hot water with good pressure, ceiling fan, air conditioner, sliding glass doors to outdoor seating with screen doors if you want air without bugs. WiFi spotty at best from room. Slightly better in lobby. Breakfast buffet had western and south Asian. Limited but adequate to fuel up for the day's touring.
