It's the atmosphere. Down to earth, relaxed. It's the service. It's the food. Well, it's just all. You do not find many hotels in China who manage to make a real home. It is out of town and I would say that is an asset. You can hear the river flow, even dine along its banks. Bike, hike and be... More

We stayed for two nights in August 2015 with our family of five. The hotel itself is in a stunning location, right beside a river and surrounded by Karst hills. The view in every direction is spectacular. The hotel itself is lovely and well maintained, and as well as the common room, has a great pool and outside covered and... More

this is a small inn with excellent, comfortable rooms. It is well located for those that want an escape from the crowds when they are traveling. Very attentive staff. Bikes for quick rides and close to some beautiful sites for hiking. We stayed two nights to break up our two week tour of China. Seems to attract a nice blend... More

We chilled out here for four days within a hectic China tour. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Evening meals were a delight and - one big surprise- the local red wine was excellent. The views from the hotel were breathtaking - this must be one of the most beautiful places on earth. We spent one day gliding down... More

My three night stay here was oh so relaxing! The peace and quiet were very welcome after Hong Kong, and after each day out in Yangshuo at a peak tourist time. The staff were all friendly and helpful. My room was beautiful and very comfortable, with lovely views from the balcony. The hotel's facilities were all that I could want,... More

Our group of 6 stayed one night at the hotel. Don’t know that I would call it a resort, but it was very nice. It is hidden off the main road, so it was very quiet and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful - they took our luggage to our second floor rooms with no prompting. Each room... More

We stayed for 2 nights as part of our package tour in Yangshou and boy were we glad it was in this lovely hotel. The room was clean and spacious with amazing traditional Chinese decorations and furniture. Love the large sized bathtub and shower cubicle which is quite a rare sight in China Hotels of the same price range. There... More

I was recommended to go to this place as a part of my hiking trip for that day and honestly this was a really nice experience! The location is absolutely stunning with the Jinbao river just passing by. The staff was just amazing, so friendly and I felt so welcomed by them all even if I didn't stay there overnight.... More

We stayed as a family (kids 6, 4 and 6 months) in late July. I was only looking to book a hotel with an outdoor swimming pool as it was so hot in the late summer. I booked after reading TripAdvisor reviews. The hotel exceeded my expectations. The pool was great! Such a great way to cool off in the... More
