I spent 6 nights with Kevin and Becky during one stop in a fellowship trip to China. I was both doing research and enjoying the beauty of this mountainous region. Kevin and Becky were excellent hosts. Great recommendations, did a two-day excursion with Kevin, reliable internet, delicious coffee and breakfast. Then, there were the ways that they went above and... More

Very close to the old town with clean comfortable rooms and a nice common area with a wood burning stove. Becky speaks excellent English and organised a very good English speaking driver to take me out to the national park. For only 150rmb he drove me out and then waited while I did the trek around the lakes. A great... More

I travelled with my family (with two toddlers) and spent 2 nights at Kevin´s trekker inn. Kevin and Becky were great hosts. The rooms were very clean, spacious and perfect for our 2 night stay in Shangrila. Western breakfast was good and the few dishes for dinner they offered were also good. The view from the third floor room was... More

Located less than 10 minutes walk from the old town in Shangri-La, Kevins Trekker Inn is perfectly placed. The room was quiet, very clean and spacious with good bathroom facilities. Laundry and airport/bus station services are also provided for very reasonable prices. Kevin and Becky are extremely friendly and helpful and do everything to make your stay pleasant and provide...

Becky, the hostess, reminded me of my mom. Her smile, her helpfulness, her sincere well-wishes for our trip was clearly evident. My stay here was closest thing to home away from home and I would definitely recommend anyone, including students, to stop here :)

I stayed at Kevin's trekker inn back in May and had an excellent time. Taking the upgrade option for the top floor room with it's excellent terrace and panoramic windows that maximised the view over Shangrila. Well worth it to me at least. Conveniently located close to local bus routes for the main sites, the breakfast was great and the... More

Having spend that much time planning and navigating yourself to Shangri-la, most likely you're not here for luxury resorts or out standing hotel facilities. Well, if you are looking for those, maybe you should consider changing destination and head somewhere else for your vacation. Kevin's Trekker Inn provides excellent balance between affordability and comfortable accommodation. It certainly doesn't have the... More

I stayed at this well situated guest house for 2 nights, both Becky and Kevin were very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed the conversation just as much as we loved the cleans rooms and their beautiful garden. All of these have eased slightly the pain caused by the damage done by the fire tragedy to the old town. This Shangri... More

A great experience staying here- we opted for the new section and were really pleased with our rooms, a good size and good amenities and very clean. Make sure you opt for a family style meal with Becky and Kevin- we had 2 and highly recommend their cooking skills. Breakfast too is great value and if you are going out... More
