Loved the stay at Bruce chalet with great hospitality from Bruce & team; drop off to Shuhe old town anytime & easy rides to Lijiang old town & day trips to anywhere with reliable guides.
Thanks much for the laundry service & ever happy faces to attend to our needs.
Like the quiet & farm like surrounding as well. Safe. & not forgetting gd airport pickup & drop off.
One suggestion - make available simple meals for lunch or dinner
Thanks again Bruce:)

It was my second visit to Lijiang and last time I was here this place was fully booked. So here I am on the second visit, glad that I have finally stayed in this little Shangri-la! The chalet is located a bit outside of Suhe village in a tranquil neighborhood. Bruce picked us up and of course it was pretty easy finding it. Our group got a bit sick from all the traveling prior to our arrival. Ms Zhao made us hot tea and prepared refreshments and really made everyone feel relaxed and welcomed. The garden in the center of the charlet is beautiful! Away from all the noise in the touristy old town, we've really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again:)

Bruce chalet is located at a village near Shuhe Old Town and near the foot of jade snow mountain. The entire design of this oriental inn is very nice,especially the courtyard garden. We had the room at the first floor overlooking the garden and pond. View was wonderful but the rooms at 2nd floor have much better views of the snow mountain. What makes our stay even fabulous is the kind hospitality received from Bruce and his assistant. I really enjoyed my stay tremendously. Would definitely revisit again!

We booked Bruce Chalet based on the reviews we read on this site and were greatly happy with it. It is unbelievable what Bruce and Bella would do for their guests. They are always available for you and give you the best advice and provide all that is necessary. You need a car to go to Yu Long Mountains or to Lijiang, no problem, there is a car with a very pleasant driver to take you around. Would you have diner in Shuhe and find it is a bit dark to go home, Bruce will come and pick you up. Bruce would even drive you there and come back a couple of hours later to take you back home. Even though it is not far to walk to Shuhe and a very pleasant walk through picturesque village lanes. The property itself is really charming and well kept. The garden is beautiful and it is a pleasure when you come back from a long day walking to be welcomed with fruits and tea and freshly baked cakes. In the morning you can share the long table in the kitchen with other guests or if you prefer have your breakfast in the garden. Bruce Chalet is not a hotel, it is much more than that because you get to know the people who run the place and they are really great people. It is a place you want to go back to or recommend to your best friends. If you are looking for friendliness and warmth this is the place!

We stayed for two nights here, there is nothing to complain at all. Bruce and his staff always giving and excellent service, and good suggestions. The location is not in the center (which I prefer...) but it can be reached easily in few minutes walk. Very nice hotel with a nice garden! Thanks!
