We stayed here for 3 days. Staff is very helpful and friendly. All serving staff speaks English. Rooms are good. The hotel has a nice outdoor pool (also a ping pong table), greatly appreciated by our kids. The town is nearby and easy to reach with the free shuttle service.

Staying in this resort was a highlight of our trip to China, a break from the crowds in the cities and a chance to cycle along the river and visit local villages. The hotel staff were excellent, Ella on reception spoke very good English, rooms were clean and the food was great. My partner had a fall and needed to... More

This hotel was excellent to stay, the rooms are clean and big, friendly staff, good english speaking, excellent food too! Nice and spectacular environment! We used frequently the shuttle bus from the hotel to town and back! Thanks for this service! We've booked the activity 'Cooking Lesson': it was great, funny and delicious! Swimming pool and laundry service!

This hotel, not too far away from the heart of the town, was a surprisingly pleasant stay. We had a suite which was very clean and extremely comfortable. The view was very good and the hotel had a swimming pool. The restaurant had very delicious food. Overall a very good two nights.

Recently my wife and stopped here for one night whilst we travelled around the spectacular Guilin/Yangshuo region, and we really enjoyed our time spent here. The staff are very friendly, and although the room we had was pretty basic by Western standards, it was very comfortable and we had an excellent night’s sleep. The hotel itself is a reasonable distance... More

We loved its casual but enthusiastic reception, its attentive service, and the staff themselves who all worked hard to pass on their love for being there. The food was good, the pool was sweet after a long day travelling, and the peaceful location gave us the relaxation we were needing.Possible rustic to some, we felt that was a large part... More

After reading some of the reviews of this hotel by Americans it leaves me wondering if they don't realize how fortunate they are to be able to travel and experience other cultures or if they think the entire world should be Mickey Mouse perfect. I found the Snow Lion to be quite nice. Perhaps a bit dated by American standards,... More

Our family spent one night here after our Li River cruise. We found the hotel to be rather basic and in need of updating. Bathroom fixtures leaked whenever the toilet was flushed. There is no elevator so be prepared to carry your bags up to wherever your room is located. We stayed in the older of their two buildings. Perhaps... More

This place was a big disappointment, not what we expected at all. They offered to pick us up in town, which is nice, but they arrived in an open-sided electric golf-cart-type buggy. It was a slow, bumpy, and dusty ride out to the hotel, with almost constant honking from impatient drivers behind us. At the hotel they insisted that we... More
