This place completely exceeded our expectations and I'd recommend it without hesitation. Located just before the city gate, about a 10 minute drive from the center of Thimpuh, the hotel is set on a hill overlooking the valley. Our room, #7 on the 3rd floor, was enormous and very well lit. It had a comfortable king size bed with soft pillows, a separate sitting area with a couch and chair and a flat screen TV with a huge selection of English language stations, and a bathroom with a bathtub (which we requested based on some previous reviews). There were a selection of toiletries (soap, bath gel, shampoo, lotion, razors, toothpaste), a powerful hair dryer, and soft, fluffy towels. The staff delivered our luggage to our room, which required them to go up many flights of steps! The rooms are located in buildings behind the main building, where the reception desk and restaurant are located. WiFi was available in our room, with a strong signal and high speeds. There were three heaters in our room, which kept us toasty in December. Since we were traveling in the low-season, both breakfast and dinner were made to order, not buffet. For breakfast, we ordered whatever we wanted off the small menu, which include any style eggs, fruit, baked beans, porridge, fried rice, etc. It was very good. Dinner was acceptable, but nothing great. As with other places, the portions were huge. They brought a small "buffet" to our table that included several types of vegetables, fried chicken, French fries, spaghetti with tomato sauce, and rice. It was a random combination, but there as plenty to choose from and we left full. Of course, this is Bhutan, so there were some funny things. For example, there was a lamp on the bedside table but no plug nearby so it sat there for decoration. Despite the large room, there was no dresser or closet - just a coat rack with a few hangers on it. The bathtub and shower lacked a shower curtain, so the floor got a bit wet - but I've experienced MUCH worse. The water was hot and the water pressure just fine.
