Lonely Planet Review
This grand dzong-like hotel was built in 1974 for guests invited to the coronation of the present king and, though getting on a bit, it still maintains a whiff of that grandeur. The main building rooms are set around a lovely interior courtyard and come with elaborate Victorian furniture. Look for the stuffed yak guarding the entrance to the conference hall. For comfortable facilities in a traditional setting, ask to stay in one of the tastefully decorated wooden cottages.
