“Fast & informative email response, cozy room”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Bruce always responded my emails in a timely manner; he also provided a wealth of information about excursions around Lijiang and beyond.

The garden view room we got upstairs has a cozy ambience. Though it has no heater and we were there during winter, this wasn't much of a problem thanks to the provided electric blankets.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

We went to this guesthouse last October with my tai chi master and all my friends, total 11 rooms. This guesthouse is introduced by my son, he told me that you don't need to worry anything and they will provide the best for you. It is true that we really feel home style and we had a great time there.

Lijiang old town is a bit too much people for us, we all love Shuhe more.

We are not going to visit lijiang soon, but we suggest people stay in Bruce chalet if you go to lijiang.

We have a nice trip last week in Lijiang. The Chalet room is very quiet and clean, the boss Bruce is very nice and kind as well as his beautiful wife Bella. I spend my remarkable birthday in the Chalet, they arrange a remarkable party for us, thanks again for their services during my stay in Suhe.

The location is just perfect, not too far to Shuhe old town but quiet. Staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. Also very helpful in organizing a day trip for us. Blankets were just right ad the night's are really cold.

We stayed around a week at The Bruce Chalet. The room was clean and nicely decorated, and the staff were extremely helpful. The whole place had a very personal feel, right from the first day we arrived and were invited to join a barbecue.

There was plenty of advice on things to do, and Bruce (who is from Hong Kong) has travelled widely in the region and has lots of tips, as does Julie. We were also able to leave our bags in the room at no charge when we went for an overnight trip to Shangri La.

The only thing that would improve it would be if it was made easier to stay there and not leave, by offering a few basic meals (on top of breakfast, which is very generous and delicious). The nearby town of Shuhe is quite tacky and touristy and a 5-10 minute walk along a dusty road with constant traffic of construction vehicles. If you've been out during the day, cycling, hiking or generally wandering around, it would be amazing to come back to the Bruce Chalet and not have to leave again in search of a meal.

Bruce and Julie (and HuaLun) were so friendly and extremely helpful to us in arranging everything: our transportation, activities, meal suggestions, etc. We would love to go back at a warmer time of year.
