The owner had organised a car to pick me up at the airport and when we left the highway I wondered where we were going. We didn't seem to be going anywhere....I was wrong, shortly after we arrived in a cosy courtyard where I was greeted welcome. Later I learned that one of the old cities were only 10 minutes...

Stayed here for two nights after a trip round Northwest Yunnan. It is absolutely lovely - set in a quiet part of Shuhe that is far more authentic than the touristy centre. You can see the mountains from the balcony and there is a beautiful garden you can chill out in. The rooms are really nicely decorated with huge comfy...

This place was fantastic, simply put. My girlfriend and I had checked out of another hotel, (run by local Lijiang-ers, be careful) early after only one night due to thin walls, stingy service, and an owner who threatened to smash us with a garbage can when we refused to pay twice as much as was originally quoted to us when...

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Bruce Chalet for five days. We had actually planned to go to Tiger Leaping Gorge but the weather wasn't good enough. The hotel is situated outside of Shuhe Old Town. You have to walk about 5 to 10 minutes to get there. If you want to go to Lijiang (but Shuhe is nicer!!!)...

Very nice accommodations and an excellent value. Beware that taxi drivers may not know where to find it (we were dropped off several blocks away and, after a call, Julie came out and walked us back to Bruce Chalet!). Our room was well appointed and the grounds are so relaxing! The short (3 minute) walk to Shuhe Old Town was...

We stayed end of February 2015 @ the Bruce Chalet and I confirm the exceptional friendliness of Linda and her team. All is good from this point of view. If you chose this place in the colder months you most cope with chilly nights and mornings, heating is not sufficient. i think in warmer months, starting from April onwards, it...

We booked the Mountain View room that has an attached balcony. The room was on the second floor and there were several female staff who insisted on carrying the luggage up for us.
