“Best Relaxation trip i ever had.”
Reviewed 10 May 2011

Our stay in The Bruce Chalet was wonderful. The hotel is situated in a village where locals are so hospitable and away from a small town by 10-15mins walk. It has a big balcony where my friends and I had a nice BBQ time lol. Staffs are limited but they are happy to assist at our convenience. We think the price is very resonable for all the joys we had. Is a very nice natural place for relaxation for busy city people <<< ME.

The place is relaxing and beautiful! Even not so near the town but they can provide the good service and arrange the car to pick up from town.
Then the owner and worker also very very nice and keep the place is clean. They will suggest the view point and travel schedule.
Anyway, i will come again in this place!!!!!

Bruce Chalet is super place to stay when you visit Lijiang. After a long day of sightseeing and travelling, all you want to do is get rested for the next day.

Rooms are decorated for a natural and cozy feel. Very clean and basic amenities are provided daily. Even equipped with electric blanket during the cold nights.

Landscaping around the compound is beautifully maintained. Much easier to forget about all reality and just concentrate on enjoying the trip.

Mr. Bruce who runs Bruce Chalet speaks perfect English and is very knowledgeable on Lijiang. Will recommend the best places to go as some places are not optimum depending on the season. He can customize trip for you to fit your trip schedule and interest. Very friendly, professional and hospitable.

I will definitely stay at the Bruce Chalet next time I visit Lijiang.

Bruce is the nicest guy you will ever meet and he was there to help us anytime we needed him. He speaks English wonderfully and really goes out of his way to help. The Chalet and the garden is shockingly beautiful even though we were there in December. I would love to see it in the spring. This was the absolute cleanest place we stayed during our tour of China and such a great bargain for the stunning mountain view in the morning.

It's the first time for me to travel a long distance alone under recommendation of a friend. It's just a perfect place for you to have daydream all day and no one will laught at you for that. Look at the blue sky, enjoy the Yulong Mountain, stare at the fish in the pool and if you are lucky, you can find some squirrels jumping between the trees.
The location of this Hotel is outside the Shuhe Town,but you can find a shortcut to the town in 5 minutes. Very quiet, good for your sleep. The room was very comfortable and clean. You can find a kitchen there and a comfortable lobby with plenty of seating to recieve guests. You can buy food and cook by yourself. Just like Home!!!!
I will do something like this again largely because of my positive expierence at this, my primary residence throughout my stay.
