Thank you so much for a wonderful three days in October 2016. Every one at the Swiss Guest House was so kind and thoughtful. All our needs and requests were attended to so promptly even though they had a full house. Pretty much every thing they serve here is home-made from the bread to the Gouda and Emmenthal Cheese, Honey,...

We arrived at the Swiss Guest House and were a little confused about the architecture and gardens. However the owners and staff made us very welcome, we had a room with a balcony overlooking the valley and the food was fabulous. It is a no fuss kind of place, almost all produce is home grown or at least local, there...

Swiss Guest House is a family affair. The owner came to Bhutan in the 70's to introduce and teach cheese-making to the country. His daughter-in-law runs things, and his son cooks. It's a marvelous collaboration! Wood-burning stoves warm the generously sized rooms, showers were hot (if a bit rustic). The marvelous food was a mix of Swiss/Italian influences with local...

The road leading to this hotel could be a bit discouraging. It was pebbly and uneven and the van had to negotiate the bad road very very slowly and very carefully. But once we caught sight of the colorful buildings, we immediately felt relieved and welcomed. The Swiss Guest House would certainly get great marks for the size of the...

Bliss 1 - Bhutan, Bliss 2 - Bumthang and Bliss 3 - Swiss Guest House This guest house is not very upmarket when it comes to rooms but that is where the downsides of this place end. The food is all home made and organic right from your bread to jam to veggies and very different in taste. There is...

This is a rather incongruous guest house and a little jaded. The rooms are a short walk from the main building and you have to run the gauntlet of the local dog population (although they seemed pretty laid back until they started to bark in the early hours). On arrival, woodburning stoves had been lit in each room to heat...

There aren't a lot of places in Bumthang at the non-Amanakora end of the budget so we stayed at the Swiss Guest House. The rooms were pretty basic and a bit dark. There was an wood burning stove, but we couldn't get it going as the wood was wet. While we were there, the lights went out at night and...

This a hotel about 20 minutes by car from the city center of Bumthang. The staff is really very friendly and would do anything for you. The kitchen was rather European/Swiss, but when we asked for Bhutanese food we got it and it was excellent. Rooms are basic, but there's everything you need. They are heated by a wood stove,...
