Lack of english information of hotel/guesthouse in Tibet lies in the fact that visiting Tibet off your (foreigner) own bat is illegal, foreigners must be assigned with a companion, i.g. a local tour company during Tibet stay from which you get an all-inclusive travel package. In results, self promotion of lodging would rather cater to domestic tourists and naturally, in Chinese language.
