Very good hotel & cooperative staff

I was there for 9 days. Location is peaceful away from city traffic and noise. Rooms are spacious and clean. Hotel staff is very cooperative and helpful. Food is also very good and they also customize as per requirement. Service is good. Only internet connectivity is problem due to its location.


Memorable Experience

The hotel has really spacious rooms and excellent food. The service by staff is very friendly. A walk to Shey is a good short trek which anyone can do by themselves. In my case I left my DSLR charger while returning back, The staff was kind enough to mail it to my address.
