Sorry to have to contradict the other reviews of this hotel but once again, "Oh dear!" My Chinese wife and myself arrived in the evening to be met with front of house staff who were dressed in dirty clothes and who we could smell from 2 metres away.
We signed in and were then guided out to our room in a building at the back of the main building. From the reception desk we were guided past the dining room and down a dank dimly lit passageway with peeling walls, into the garden, again with no lighting and into the accommodation block. The whole building smelled of dampness with the paint peeling from the walls, the room was simply dirty.
I went back to reception and explained that this was not acceptable and asked for the room to be changed. They then showed me an even dirtier room on the top floor of the same block. Having eplained that this too was not acceptable they then gave us a room in the main block. This room was much larger and a little, but not a lot, cleaner. Torn curtains, blinds that did not work, the oldest tv still working, a sofa so dirty my wife would not even sit on it and floors and carpets so dirty we would not take our shoes off. I know this place is out in the sticks but once again, this is one of China's prime tourist destinations and someone really should make sure that visitors to this beautiful part of the world are treated to better standards of accommodation. I can put up with some things but I refuse to accept that dirty hotel rooms and hotel staff are acceptable anywhere. I attach some photos of the bathroom to try and give readers some idea of the room condition.
There was an excellent small local restaurant just next to the hotel where we ate each evening. The food was superb, especially their own cured bacon which is some of the best I have ever had in my life.
