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.

(Restaurant review) This was our last meal before leaving Bhutan and we thoroughly enjoyed both the ambience and the food. They provide a traditional setting with low seating (if one is comfortable with it) and a wonderful display of traditional tools, utensils, old photographs and arts/crafts all around the farmhouse. The food was one of the best we had in Bhutan. The quality of the Ema Datsi, pumpkin soup, plum wine and spinach was evident from the number of times we helped ourselves to another serving! The space is cosy and warmed by an electric heater if you head there in the night. The family is very welcoming and took us on a tour of the house above to see the decor and displays from days of yore in this household of a prestigious member of the early government. It's located very close to the main bridge and Paro town making it easy to reach both on foot and by car.

Our family went in there for a hot stone bath followed by a sumptuous lunch. We also tried their home made wine and must say their hospitality is above and beyond expectations . Its a fairly simple place with very warm and friendly people.

Heritage home stay is almost 300 year old architecture and it's uniqueness you will fall in love with this place and with the people of this place and it is wel organized and wel mentained and very clean and rooms and bed are big enough. This place has hot water stone bath, it is the perfect way to relax and wind down after a long day of sightseeing @ Tiger Nest and is also believed to have numerous health benefits. :) The Host Ms Karma and their family is super hosts and amezing people we have come a cross during our tour.

We booked this farmstay and it was nightmare lasted for two nights. Common washroom was the hardest to deal with in cold winters and no toiletries. The room was not insulated so fought with the cold wind in -2 degree, thou they provide room heater which was nearly non-existence due to poor insulation. They cook only Bhutanese food now as they shut down their restaurant. Showers with poor outlet of water and geysers not working at all. Had to use hot stone water for bathing after using hot stone bath dip, there also no shower and geyser working. Had a troubled time with my 2 yr old kid.

Response from GoPlaces31346974224, Owner at Paro Penlop Dawa Penjor Heritage Farmhouse
Responded 10 Dec 2019
Dear Mr & Mrs. Sawan Pawar, First of all, Thank you for your review, we were expecting this!!! Before you go on to review about a 300 years ancestral home of a very prominent personality of a country, you should have reviewed yourself first.... 1. Are you doing justice to yourself as a traveler, expecting all the facilities of a hotel in a 300 years old Authentic and very old traditional living Bhutanese farmhouse? 2. You had multiple choice of almost 200 hotels from the online portal you booked, why did you choose to stay in farm stay!!! 3. Are you even aware what is the difference between a hotel and a farm stay??? 4. And yes, our kitchen serves only local Bhutanese food. You knew Paro town is at stone throw distance, with variations of restaurant, Choice was yours, not ours!!! Oh yes...we assumed you enjoyed food served from our kitchen. We received a hint of "job well done" from Mrs.Pawar after 1st night dinner. Her Humorous statement "I had to stop my husband from eating your dinner plates, he wouldn't stop licking it!!! Thank you Mrs.Pawar, your compliment is well received, it superceeded all negativity!!! 5. Let me remind you once again, you choose to stay in "Farmstay" and we "ARE FARMSTAY" in literal meaning!!! We are not hyped modern house turned farmstays & home stays with modern fittings and amenities. 6. My ancestors and this house has survived for generations...this house has seen the worst, survived natural disasters, survived Civil Wars...and still stands tall, even mightier to tell us our history and story, so Thank you Mr.Pawar for giving me this opportunity to explain and let the world know who we are, what we are. We stand to cater to travelers with "thirst for knowledge"...Literate Tourist kindly slip away!

We were here for a hot stone bath and for a local Bhutanese dinner. Enjoyed both to the fullest. They also have a couple of simple, yet tastefully decorated rooms, in case you are planning a short stay. You will like the ambience, the food and the service. The place is run by an enterprising mother and son, team.

A quant little farmstay tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet easily accessible. I loved the heritage vibe of the place and the interiors are very tastefully done. The host Namkha and the employees are very attentive and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. All in all a satisfying experience. Would love to come back and would highly recommend.

A warm welcome butter tea sprinkled with fragant roasted rice is delightful. The 100 years old farmhouse is well kept. The old arts and handicrafts are authentic and in good condition. The house looks more charming when the lights lit up when it is dark. We enjoyed archery and darting in the rice field very much...while the blue sky turned pink when the sun set. It was awesome. Traditional hot stone bath was soothing and relaxing, especially after 2 days trekking in the wilderness. thank you: Lost Horizon Travel for arranging such a wonderful evening full of joyful, fun, relaxing activities at this farmhouse.

The Grandfather of the host we met at the farm-house was the Penlop of Paro. Penlop is the Bhutanese term for Governor. The family also had some links with the Royal Family of Bhutan and the King of the Bhutan must accede the Paro Penlop House before acceding the throne of the Bhutan, as is the custom which is still followed. You will get to see a lot of swords, shields and other antique articles, each of which carry a story with itself. Special mention can be made of Japanese Elctronic Gramophone which is almost a century old and a sword named AK-47 designed by Sir Abdul Kalam (named after him). The farm also offers hot stone-bath therapy and it is just awesome. You can sip the local wine 'Ara' and bath in mountain water with red-hot stones. The host are very welcoming and the food is awesome. You can ask for customized meals and they would arrange for the same. They would treat you just as the family and you will get to have your dinner with the family in the dinning. The farm-house is located amidst the paddy fields and gives a nice view of the hills from the windows. I and my wife loved staying there. Special thanks to the little girl, Choki.
