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.

The hotel itself is ok. The night shift staff lady was very nice. The beds are comfortable enough for couple night. The floor is dusty. Over all, it was a quiet and ok place to stay BUT the only thing I don't like was the way they transfer our luggages from the front gate to our room. To be able to get to the hotel you have to walk thru a dirty path with animals poop. So our luggages were smelly, the poop smell allover our luggages wheels. Luckily, I had my disaffection spray with me. I sprayed my luggages before we transfer to another hotel.

This a clean and well maintained lodge nestled among paddy fields outside Paro. It is not walkable from the main town, so more suited to someone who appreciates peace and quiet. Breakfast is strangely overpriced.

We stayed 2 nights at the Village Lodge on a recent trip to Bhutan, while in Paro. The hotel is a great combination of quaint Bhutanese home and modern amenities in the room. We felt safe and our room was clean, the staff helpful. Highly recommend this - great value for money!

Spacious rooms and bathrooms- really clean, comfortable with good views. All of the staff are so friendly and can’t do enough to help. Breakfast and evening meals have been really good- this is the third hotel I’ve stayed in Bhutan now and this one has been the best food. The chefs did a really fun demonstration on how to make Mo Mo’s!

Our first two nights in Bhutan were spent here. We had a lovely welcome, beautiful rooms and magnificent views of the valley and the distant mountains. The staff are delightful and the service was charming. It was cold in the mornings with a thick December frost one day, but it was warm and welcoming inside. Each room has an electric heater and the beds are comfortable and warm. The hot water took a time to arrive but that was never an issue. This was the perfect introduction to Bhutan!

A huge sense of calmness, comfortable and nicely designed rooms with great views (after all the lodge nestles in the midst of paddy fields), generous lashings of good old-fashioned hospitality, friendly smiling faces (Shering, Tashi, Maniram, Ishai, Ishai’s sister, and the others from the team – we terribly miss you all), and last but not the least, cuisine that will keep your lips smacking. I stayed at the Village Lodge for 9 days – yes, it was that peaceful – and I could see myself emerge as a different person at the end of my stay. This lodge is designed for people who love nature, and are somewhat of a peaceful disposition. Yes, it has drawbacks – the Wi-Fi strength could be better – but really, would you fret about the Wi-Fi connectivity in a place like Bhutan? The idea is to connect with nature, not with social media/work. Having said that I did finish a presentation by simply moving to my room to a wooden table by the side of a mini apple orchard. A bird even gave me company for a couple of hours. The Paro Chu river just outside the property is perfect for long walks in the evening. And you can hear the cheerful babbling of the pebbly river from the rooms too.

Village lodge ambiance will ensure you get a complete village feel. Beautiful apple trees & green fields will mesmerize you. However, there could be improvement on below points: -Better breakfast options instead of same breakfast everyday. -No matter we chose you for stay, but at the end one still needs a wifi to stay in touch with near and dear ones. I was travelling solo & during my stay, there was no wifi on 3 consecutive days in my room. - Rooms are basic & disjoint from the restaurant area, so they charge additional for a room service even if you want a cup of tea to your room early morning. - There was a fire incident during my stay just next to my room and it took some time for the care taker to come to scene. The care taker & security were sleeping away from the guest room area & were caught unaware of the fire until I informed !! Certainly guests security & safety should be a prime concern before any other service.

For sure, this is one of the best lodges we stayed at in Bhutan. Comfortable spacey rooms with character. Very comfortable mattress. Bath and shower (no hair dryer). Good food during breakfast and dinner. Serving good espresso, latte and cappuccino.... Indoor and outdoor places to relax and enjoy a drink.
