We had a very good stay at the resort. They upgraded the room for us and the staff was polite and kind to us. Food in the restaurant was nice. The only downside was the lack of hot water and for 2 days out of the 3. The view from the room was very nice. Toilet is located in the... More

Our family of four has been traveling around the world since June 2014. Our stay at Yangshuo Village Retreat was one of the best places we have stayed at so far. Gerd upgraded our room to the deluxe family suite. This room is incredible. My husband and I shared an enormous bedroom with a newly remodeled bathroom and flat screen... More

Yangshou Village Retreat is truly a haven from the hustle and bustle of the city centre of Yangshou and yet it is not so remote and far away as a tourist hideaway. We stayed in this awesome hotel for a week over Christmas 1014 and absolutely felt welcome, safe and taken care of by the staff and management. It is... More

Dear Ina, Thank you so much for taking time and effort to share your enjoyable experiences about your stay with us last Christmas! Canada has always been among the top of destinations we would love to visit one day and you just gave us an extra reason to spend a few more days in Vancouver! All the best, Gerd More

Thank you very much for recommending our hotel to fellow travellers and we are delighted to read you would stay with us again. On a side note for future guests, our 2 standard rooms do have the bathroom on the exterior side of the room with large sliding windows that allow for maximum brightness to enter the room but clean...

We stayed in the off season so everything was very quiet. It is slightly out of town, which we liked, a short walk to west st and there is also a free shuttle bus that leaves every hr which is fantastic. I would agree with other reviews in that the decor and bathroom arrangements are a bit bizarre, but the... More

Thank you very much for your honest review and we're delighted you enjoyed a comfortable stay with us. The food poisoning you refer to is often a bug that generally develops and moves around from the end of autumn till winter. It's rather intense but fortunately only lasts 1 night but can be passed on to other family members the... More

This hotel is very good located for the beautiful landsape around it and it isn't any problem to get to the city centre because they have got their own vehicle to leave you next to West Street. The service is very kind and organizes amazing trips by bike and sell you tickets to the best shows in Yangshuo!

Stayed here with family, for holiday. The staff are attentive and polite, nothing is too much. The food was great, so much choice. The outdoor searing area is lovely, the views are out of this world. Our room had the shower on the balcony - very unusual but we liked it

Thank you very much for your favourable review. For clarification, our retreat is located a 20-25 beautiful walk or a 7min bike ride along the Li-river to the most interesting part of the centre of Yangshuo, along the Li-river as well, with its lively scene of bars, shops and restaurants. To maximise convenience, we provide a non-stop free shuttle service... More

Our family has just spent 5 nights at the Village Retreat where we had rented the spacious “Penthouse” for the five of us. The village retreat is a truly charming place off the touristic crowds in busy Yangzhou. It is a nice accommodation in a peaceful village, with good and friendly service and plenty of local flavour.

We spent 4 nights here in September 2014. For the most part, Gerd and his staff were very nice, and extremely helpful with booking excursions. The property is located a short distance out of Yangshuo - 10 minutes on the regular-scheduled shuttle, 20 minutes if you take the pleasant walk. We had a bit of an issue with our booking.... More

We always appreciate when guests leave an honest review about their stay with us. It really encourages us to keep up with the services that are very much appreciated and where we fail to improve our services where guests feel we should. However with this review I personally feel quite a bit cheated as it contains facts that are either... More
