Nice, clean, big property with sunny rooms and smiling staff. Rooms had lovely view. Food was fresh, but we had to order 12 hours in advance. They even provided packed sandwiches on the morning we left for Paro, really early.

Nice clean place. Near the centre of the town. Sadly no wifi in the rooms, so had to sit in the lobby and check our phones. Food was good. Clean rooms. Good service. Helpful staff. We stayed there for 2 nights only and had no complaints

More than just a Riverview, it sits above much of the city to provide a good look-out including the main stadium and looking up to the glorious mountains. The rooms were very pleasantly set out and had good facilities.

Stayed for couple of nights in the hotel. The room was average though the good part it connected to a nice balcony. The breakfast was mainly local. The staff are nice. But the view of the valley is breathtaking. Bhutan is such a beautiful country that it compensates of everything else.

Very dated hotel which is away from down town with no facilities apart from dining room and bedroom, bedroom was acceptable but nothing else, staff were friendly enough and helpful. Biggest fault with this hotel was the wifi in the room was very poor

We were only here for 1 night, the first in Bhutan. It was a good location - out of the downtown, but yet an easy walk into town. We appreciated that the noise from dogs at night was kept to a minimum, so we actually had a good sleep. Nice views from the huge veranda. Food and service were good....

The room was simple and clean. Bathroom could have been nicer. Staff were great along with the food. I might not stay there again if I could find something a little bit nicer, but it served its pupose.

The hotel, like many places in Bhutan, is showing its age. The room was cool and a bit crowded. The restaurant food was OK, but nothing of great quality. Staff were pleasant. Wifi only worked in the lobby and restaurant, which can be annoying... Bring earplugs for the symphony of the dogs all night long...

This was my first stop in in Bhutan after arriving...it was a bit of an underwhelming welcome to this country, with service that I did not find very friendly and rooms that are pretty average. I also found it very inconvenient that there was no hair dryer in the bathroom (I really could have used this after the trip) and...
