“Sunrise in the Valley, A brooke & a very lovely-homely stay”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I had a solo trip to Bhutan, and in Bomthang only I spent 5 days. Much credit of this long stay goes to this place of my stay and I did want to spend more days here.
This place did let me stay so close to nature, and obviously always smiling and helpful people made my each day so much nice. The room/bathroom were very spacious and nice. Through the window to see the morning in the valley, I loved so much. There s awesome place for Bon-Fire and outdoor bar. For playing outdoor games also there s big field close to the rocky river. And I did love the food. I have never had such nice homely stay and at such a beautiful valley. Thanks to Mendharava.

Room Tip: If you are an early riser & love sunrise, then take an east facing room. The morning in the vall...

We had a really lovely experience here staying three nights. Sonam is an excellent hostess, and her staff charming and helpful. They have only been there about 4 months and are making a big effort to talk to guests and get their views on any improvements that would help with any aspect of their stay. The food was by far the best that we had during our 10 days in Bhutan with different dishes each night.( Her husband is the main cook). The location is really peaceful and the hotel a beautifully decorated traditional house that is very clean and comfortable. The log burning stove in the main room was so cosy. There are also plenty of books about Bhutan to browse. Definitely the best of our stays in Bhutan.

My husband and I spent a couple of nights in October as part of our tour in Bhutan. We were impressed by the hospitality and responsiveness of all the personnel there, as well as the level of understanding of the guest's needs.
The location is serene, the rooms are comfortable, clean and well maintained.
Mrs. Sonam is the best hostess, and her English and mannerism make for a great experience.
An important differentiator for this place is the FOOD.
It was the best we had in Bhutan, great quality, and they seem to understand the balance between "not too spicy" and "savory" we (westerners) appreciate.
As the management is relatively new, I am certain that everything is going to get only better!

This is a very charming place where you feel very welcome. We stayed here for 3 nights in October and loved the atmosphere and the wonderful service. The big room that serves as the restaurant and sitting room is nicely decorated in Bhutanese style and has a big fireplace in the middle of the room which generates the warmth needed on a cold day.
The guest rooms provide you with the comfort you need in such a place. They are not luxurious but who needs that when the rest of the experience is wonderful.
The food was the best that we have had in 18 days in Bhutan. Especially go for the home-made noodles and the excellent buckwheat spaetzle made with an enormous wooden press. Also we appreciated the fresh vegetables and salads grown directly in front of the hotel.
Mrs. Sonam and her staff make your stay a real treat and the word Happiness Inn is a correct description.
