This places comes highly recommended even for meals. Secret is all the ingredients are locally grown especially cheese comes from their own farm. Food is yum and adheres to European standards. Be mindful of time take in food preparations as everything is cooked fresh.

This was our second trip to Bumthang and our second stay at the Swiss Guesthouse. The rural setting is quiet and peaceful. We ate onsite and enjoyed a wonderful variety of food served by extremely amiable staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable with wood...stoves for heat. Would return a third time if we were to return to the area.More

Beautiful hotel in beautiful Bhumthang. Getting here can be quite difficult without your own transport. But the location is great and the air is so clean. The rooms are set like wooden chalets and neat and clean. We opted to get our meals outside.The family...who run the property stay on site and there and two friendly dogs. Would definitely go back and spend few more days.More

It was low season and this is a nice sized hotel but for some reason we were given a room next to the ONLY other guest here. This was strange. The wifi is terrible in the rooms, at lest in the room we were given...at the far periphery of the hotel next to the other family there. The rooms are sparse but fine. The staff was lovely and the food was good.More

For Swiss people this is like coming home! Great accommodation in wooden block houses with wood stove in the room. All the food you are longing for after months of traveling as Fresh baked bread, Swiss fondue etc. Fritz Maurer, the owner, has quite a...history as being the first foreigner able to travel to Bhutan invited by the king. His own cheese dairy and beer brewery (Panda beer) and the real Swiss cows make the place even more special. A visit here is a "must" for all Bhutan travelers.More

First real hotel in bumthang, which is a remote semi rural village. Fairly basic but comfortable. What makes it is the owner and his family who run the place with care and pride. It's an experience worth booking in for. Must try beer, honey and...cheese pioneered by them in Bhutan and still made by the family.More
