Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I can imagine this was once the best place in town - and it may well still be. It sits on an impressive property offering lovely views across the valley. It has spacious rooms, a bar with a pool table, and very helpful staff. But it is seriously past its prime. It is like a step back in time, with package holiday dreck dished out cafeteria style in the restaurant and lobby furniture that could well have been purchased at a Costco circa 1990. WI-FI is offered only in the lobby.

I don’t know that the town can justify the investment it would take to bring the facilities up to date. If so, I hope they will do it, as I do not see a better alternative. The upgrade is to the Aman or Six Senses hotels that cost roughly the equivalent per night of what the average Bhutan citizen earns in a year. I find that disgusting.

Our tour booked us here for three nights. I would have checked out after one, but my wife wants to spend more time at the festival that is on so we will stay for two. I will be happy to leave, and expect this will prove to have been the worst place we will have stayed in the country.

Again, it is not inherently bad, it is just very dated.

We stayed here for a night while visiting Bumthang, Central Bhutan. The room is high and nicely decorated. Bed is comfortable, and a good view of the village below from the room. The staffs are friendly and welcoming. The food here is also not bad. The hotel also have a pool table next to the restaurant and is free for guests.

Wifi in the room (108) is not very good and signal may drop quite often.

My wife and I just had a two night stay at the Yugharling resort, whilst exploring the cultural sites in the area. We had a large warm and comfortable room with great views over the town and valley below. We had our first proper bath in Bhutan. The food was excellent, my wife is vegan and i have dietary restrictions, but the restaurant produced great food for us. We particularly liked the carrot soup with cardamom and cinnamon. The staff were helpful and friendly, we would happily stay here again.

This place felt like China in the 1980’s when they weren’t quite ready for guests. It was freezing cold in all public spaces with a few space heaters in the room. The decor was fake plants and the towels thin. The hot rocks soak was nice but this is not a spa by any stretch. They did a good job with laundry and tried to accommodate vegetarian and other dietary issues in our group. It was pretty empty other than our group. The pandemic and the higher rate to be a Bhutan traveler has obviously had an impact.

All the attention was on us as we were the only guests in the hotel. The staff was lovely and super attentive, and greet with the kids.
Our meals were very good and huge quantities.
There is a nice entertainment room a bar; cable tv and a pool table.

The views of the valley from the hotel are beautiful.

The room we stayed in was massive, comfortably fitting the five of us.

Large hotel with ample parking facilities and large rooms. Suite is superbly huge. View from the windows are picturesque. Buffer spread in the morning is somewhat limited. Wifi is very good. Service is very friendly. Access to the hotel can be better though

That hotel I really can recommend. Its situated on an hill from where you have an overlooking over the beautiful valley of Bumthang. The rooms are big and well furnished, and very agreable, they have heaters. Everywhere its absolutely clean. The staff is very kind, helpful, skilled and very well educated. The food is variable and really excellent. The dining room is renewed and looks very nice and elegant. I felt myself to be at home and very welcomed and I could enjoyed all and everything.

A very unwelcoming hotel - although there are plenty of staff running about, none seem to be doing anything useful, like keeping the heat on in the public areas, dusting, or pretty much anything else.
The rooms are large, but also cold. A couple of space heaters provided did warm the place up after a while, but you had to carefully judge when to take your shower so that you have sufficient hot water.
The food was less than ordinary, and the dining room freezing.

This is a hard place to grade. We had two, separate, 2-night stays here, a few days apart, and our two experiences were very, very different.

In our first stay, we were in a room in the biggest of the satellite “cottages,” the one farthest from the main building. The room was wonderful - spacious, quiet, comfortable, and with a stunning view over the town and valley. We had a small but pleasant balcony from which to admire the vista, and everything seemed solid and worked well - we particularly liked the retractable clothesline over the bathtub and made good use of it.

On our return visit a few days later, we were given a room in one of the smaller buildings nearer the main hotel. When we first entered our room, we saw it had the same floor plan as our earlier one, but it felt . . . more cramped, somehow. I suspect that the ceiling was lower, for one thing, and the trim on the balcony hung down far enough that my tall husband could see the view only if he sat down. As we walked around the room, we found that there in several places he floor was squishy, as if there were nothing solid underneath. That’s an odd sensation, particularly as we were on the second floor. Were we going to fall through to the lower room?

Items in the bathroom were not in as good repair as before. The ceiling seemed a bit unfinished, and the hair dryer ran at such a hot temperature that it had deformed its own nozzle through overheating the plastic. It was as if this building had been either built years before the other one (we were told that was not the case) or it had been constructed by a different -- worse -- contractor.

The “kicker” came later. We had vaguely noticed when we moved into the room that it had a connecting door that could allow this unit to open onto the neighboring one, creating a suite of sorts. Connecting units are common in motels in the U.S., of course, where typically there is either a heavy door to which only management has the key, or two doors, opening only to the residents on each side. We should have investigated more closely.

After unpacking, I’d just taken my shower and my husband was getting ready for his. In other words, we were in a state of considerable undress, at which point the connecting door BEGAN TO OPEN! I said, “Excuse me!” in a loud voice, and the door closed quickly. On further investigation we found that there was only one door and one lock between the units. Our room key fit that lock, but the lock couldn’t be bolted because the bolt didn’t line up with the hole in the door frame. In other words, there was a single unlockable door connecting our unit with our neighbors (who had tried to open the door in all innocence, simply wondering what it led to).

We protested to the hotel management, who moved us to a much better room in the main building, but the situation should not have occurred in the first place.

Other observations: The location of the hotel is really picturesque and peaceful, with a beautiful view over the valley. At the same time, it’s easy to walk to the main commercial center of town, because distances aren’t great. The dining room is only mediocre. Dinner buffets were acceptable in variety and quality, although the soup served each evening as an appetizer was really not edible. It was either completely tasteless (how do you remove all taste from soup?) or unpleasant. The breakfast buffet could be fine, but on our last morning, a bigger group had arrived to eat before us, and any items that they had entirely eaten were never replenished for us. At least the made-to-order omelets were good.

I stayed at the resort for the nights of 21 to 23 May 2016. To give the hotel its dues, it not really as bad as I first thought. This hotel is by no means anywhere close to the quality of the hotels that I would usually choose. It’s never a good impression when you check into the hotel and there’s carpenters in the reception area with a circular saw making stuff. The hotel was by far the cheapest in terms of price on my trip in Bhutan – only because I refused to pay the exorbitant price of the over-priced resort down the road (around USD 1,500 per night (??) I believe).

The hotel has a nice view over the Bumthang Valley. The road to the hotel is an absolute nightmare – after many hours of travelling, this really is the last thing you need. PLEASE do something about that annoying road. And it’s not a nice way to start your day of touring, having to navigate that road before hitting tar.

There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms, and the Wi-Fi in the reception area is spotty at best. There were many times that I could not connect, so gave up trying.

The food is OK, though far from exceptional. There are limited non-vegetarian options – they seem to cater to vegetarians only.

The rooms are OK – mine was actually quite OK. But not great by any means.

They call them themselves ‘Resort & Spa’ – I certainly didn’t feel like this was a resort. And I'm sure there wasn’t a spa – I could be wrong but I certainly wouldn’t have got anywhere close unfortunately.

I was happy to leave this hotel after my three night stay. Unfortunately there are not many more options in the area, unless you pay some crazy prices. If you can lower your expectations for a few nights then this hotel will be fine. I will not go back.
