This is an amazing little boutique hotel with 5 rooms in a small village just 4km outside of Shaxi. The hotel is situated in a 200 year old complex with an old community theater. The rooms are very stylish and comfortable. The hostess, Sam, is very helpful and speaks decent English. Furthermore, her staff prepares amazing dinners for 55 CNY per person, absolutely amazing. Breakfasts are tasty as well. Sam is also willing to help with laundry and other things as well. I absolutely recommend this place! We had a great stay!
A magic place in the countryside; rooms are not huge but very tasteful, with a perfect shower. The restaurant is good, with a wine list, and breakfast also very good. If you fancy something out of the ordinary and enjoy silence, this is the place for you.
My husband and I stayed two nights in July 2018 in this fascinating place and we really enjoyed the stay. The staff is kind and helpful, tea and homemade biscuits were waiting for us at our arrival. The room is clean and has a kind of eco-eastern atmosphere and we appreciated the peacefulness of the place. Breakfast was ok: good bread and excellent homemade jam. The thing we enjoyed most was having dinner on the balcony in front of the old stage: a unique and romantic atmosphere! There is just one thing to improve: the food was good, but not very tasty.
Such a change from the souless modern places. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the whole place is a delight to stay in. The surrounding countryside is peaceful and fascinating. We had an explore using the bikes form the hotel which was a lot of fun. The old town of Shaxi is great, good for tourists but not overdone at all.
The Inn is in a quiet spot a 40 minute walk from Shaxi village, overlooking fields where one sees hard working women planting seeds. The Old Theatre was lovingly restored, our bedroom was nice in one of the original rooms of the 200 year old Inn. clearly the bathroom had been added more recently. It was simple but functional. Jessica and Sam seem to take turns on being on duty. Jessica's English was quite good, Sam's not so good but we could get by. Breakfast was good and there was a good choice. Dinner was okay but nothing to write home about. They do stock Australian wine which they sell only by the bottle, but can keep it for you to finish the next day. When the weather was warm, we enjoyed having our dinner on the balcony overlooking the courtyard.
