The Village Lodge, Paro
Ranked #1 of 15 Specialty Lodging in Paro
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Enjoyed our stay in the Lodge. Had a large room with a heated bathroom floor and great food. The internet was a little slow but free. You will need a car or have someone pick you up cuz it is out of town and too far to walk into town.

This place is a bit out of town, certainly not walking distance especially at night. This inn seemed to be converterted from an older building. I enjoyed it's rustic look. The room was very nice. The bathroom was large and had a huge bathtub. I have to mention that the bathroom was very cold. The in-floor heating was just not adequate. We found the food quite good. I also liked the service. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would suggest the lighting in the rooms be beefed up. It was quite dim in our room. Also, adding wireless service would be a welcome addition.

This family owned, 9 room establishment, go out of their way to please. Service is truly remarkable. Count on wash cloths to rinse with when you enter the front door, smiling faces, and great views of the river flowing nearby.
What keeps Village Lodge from a perfect score is 1) flies - there are a lot of them! Screen doors and windows help, but net-net, you're on a farm, and 2) the gravel road takes 20 minutes to traverse, which can get old when using it as a home base.

What good is a heated floor if you could only have a freezing cold water shower? This is unacceptable and we moved to Tenzinling Hotel which we liked better. The dining area at the Lodge was dark and unappealing but the food was good.The rooms were very basic. Staff were pleasant. It was a typical two or three star hotel.

It was so nice to be greeted with warm hand towels after a long day of traveling, and then to be given tea and crackers. The rooms are large and the bathrooms very nice, although I could not get the warm water to work in the walk-in shower. It was very cold in Paro, and I was provided with a heater in the room to try to make it more comfortable. The food, both at dinner and breakfast, was very good and quite varied.

This place is not within walking distance from Paro city, but that means it is quiet. Dogs rule in Bhutan and they bark all night long, so getting away from the barking dogs is important. The staff was very helpful, the rooms are beautiful, the bathrooms are amazing. Food was great too. Considering that you are in a country with limited resources, this place is amazing.
