We have just returned from 2 weeks in China and the Mountain Retreat was our last stop before heading home. We spent 5 glorious days in that area and were very well looked after by the staff at Mountain Retreat. We did expect a more flash hotel but soon realised we had the BEST spot overlooking the river and the... More

I loved this place. The peace is enjoyable and the views incredible. We were part of a large group and my son and I had a triple room over looking the river. The room was clean, comfortable and roomy with everything we needed. There was free wifi to keep connected and water was provided in the rooms. They can arrange... More

We were blown-away by YSMR. I'd arranged several surprises for my then-girlfriend, now-fiancée for her birthday getaway. In China you don't often know if English is understood completely when booking, but YSMR's reservations team are pretty-much fluent on email, telephone and in-person. Annie, Irene and Sally went above-and-beyond, arranging beautiful flowers for birthday girl in her room, providing a beautiful... More

We stayed at the mountain retreat for 3 nights during a tour of China. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and made us feel welcome. The hotel was a perfect location for a family bike ride up the river. We were also able to enjoy a walk through the local villages to moon hill and the mud caves... More

We just arrived home from a wonderful one week stay at Yangshou Mountain Retreat. We arrived on a misty, cool afternoon and we enjoyed tea while sitting in front of the fire they made for us in the fire place. The location on the Yulong RIver and at the base of the karst mountains is simply beautiful. We woke up... More

We spent five nights at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat in April 2015. We were welcomed late at night with warm smiles and tea which really set the tone for our entire visit. Our room (specifically requested when we booked) had two bedrooms and looked out onto the river. It was comfortable and had everything we needed, including space for our... More

Small hotel situated on the edge of the Yulong River with views of the karst mountains. Our cozy room had a huge picture window looking out to the mountains. The restaurant was staffed with happy, helpful waiters and the food was hot, tasty, and plentiful. Meals on the terrace beside the river were especially scenic. The front desk was helpful... More

Far too expensive for what you get. Although clean, the room is extremely basic. You are close to one of the main roads so there is a lot of road noise. We paid extra for a balcony but overlooked some rough fields and the hotel's clothes lines. I've stayed in similar with no problem but not for more than 30-50... More

Dear Madam, Thank you for sharing your opinion on the Mountain Retreat. As our website features detailed photos of all rooms and their views with prices, we give guests many choices of rooms and a range of prices. As some travel agents charge much higher prices to their clients, we simply cannot control that, which is why we encourage all... More

If you want to be away from the crowds but have easy access to getting around by bicycle or taxi, this is a perfect choice. While not a spa, it felt equally as relaxing and peaceful! On sunny days, we lounged on our balcony or the river side patio watching bamboo rafts meander their way downriver. On rainy days we... More

One of the friends I travelled with found this highly rated hotel on trip advisor. We stayed 4nights in March. Arrived at Guilin airport morning of the 24th and unfortunately no driver was there to meet us (we had arranged for a car through the hotel for 300 rmb). We were able to call the hotel from the airport and... More
