Very good food, budget accommodation, out of town in a village setting, nice river for swimming nearby. Spent 5 days here with my family and it turned out to be an ideal base to explore the surroundings.

After a almost 2 weeks in the big cities of Nanning and Guiyang it was like coming to heaven when we arrived at The Giggling Tree! Peaceful, clean air, breath taking views and wonderful people! We, me, my husband, our daughter 8 years old and my mother stayed in the family house. It was perfect for us with one entrance... More

Had a great few days here. Room was very basic but more than adequate we ventured off on the bikes that are available to hire and the food was fine. Reminded me of a backpackers hostel. It was that sort of atmosphere that led to us making lots of new friends. They organised some of the activities we wanted to... More

The hospitality of the whole team is remarkable! Location is good for bicycle tours, hiking and relaxing in the courtyard or on the terasse. All people offer help, organize activities etc. for...

I'm so terribly delayed in writing this review, but I still feel the need to do it. Our stay at Giggling Tree was one of the highlights of our trip. The aesthetics of the hotel are charming, the rooms are comfortable and the staff—oh my goodness, the staff—are the greatest people. Far and away the best, most friendly hotel staff... More

We were staying in this place november 2013 en we really enjoyed our stay. Outside town, but that was a good choice. the surrounding is beautiful, and nice to walk or cycle. The town itself is nice to visit by taxi but to noisy to stay. The accommodation is traditional, cosy, and good value for money. The food is nice.... More

This type of accommodation (beautifully and sympathetically converted from old farmbuildings) is rarely found in China and was just what we needed as a relaxing break. The service was very friendly and efficient. The room was large, tastefully and simply furnished, and the bed the most comfortable I have ever had in China (I have wide experience!). The view from...

We had a wonderful stay, the people, the food (so fun to even get some Dutch food there), the unique atmosphere - we liked it lots. Would definitely book it again! It's a very relaxed place and the cycling guide-books are genius!

The hotel is 5 km away from Yanghsuo in a village. You can get there by taxi and then go back to town either by taxi or by bike (recommended). The place is just wonderful and you can find there all you need. They have a nice swimming pool, relaxing garden, very yummy restaurant with more than decent prices and... More
