Thanks a lot to the whole hotel team. You made us feel at home and you have shown us a bit more about the Chinese culture. The whole staff was very friendly, The rooms are nice and very clean. The pool in the sister hotel gave the chance to cool down after an active day. The food what you offer is delicious, it is doesn’t matter whether it is the local food or the western food. We really like your top roof restaurant and bar. One of our highlights was the dumpling class in the hotel. The hotel was the perfect location to explore the beautiful nature and the highlights in this area.
There is a reason this hotel has such great reviews - it really is wonderful. From the very beginning I got in touch with Erica (hotel manager) and she helped my husband and me get a taxi to the hotel. The hotel is out of the main town and in a special area. Not all cars can go there, so she talked to the taxi driver to figure it out for us. (This was not a big deal at all, so don't let it deter you from staying there.) We got a great room with a big balcony and beautiful view. The rooms are exactly as they look in the pictures - charming, traditional, warm. We were there end of December so it was cold outside, but the heaters worked great and there was a heated blanket too. The restaurant actually serves a huge variety of Chinese and Western dishes. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. The breakfast was great and the best part was that you could eat breakfast anytime you wanted, so there was no need to get up early. Erica arranged a scooter rental that got delivered right to us, which was very convenient, and also a taxi all the way back to the Guilin airport. Erica also did a dumpling making class for the guests, which was awesome. We even made the dough from scratch, and I was able to make veggie dumplings. Then the kitchen cooked them and that was our dinner... delicious. The hotel is lovely, but the biggest thing is that the staff is amazing. Erica is an awesome manager. We had to leave a day early and she switched our reservation without a problem or extra charge. All the other staff were super friendly, helpful, and they all spoke excellent English, which was unexpected. So if you are worried about your lack of Chinese skills, this hotel will make your life easy. Overall this hotel is amazing; I can't recommend it enough. The only negative thing I have to say is that the hotel is made of wood and is not well insulated so you hear noises all day long. Earplug are recommended if you don't want to be disturbed.…
Spent 5 days at the Mountain Nest over Christmas and will definitely be going back. The location is great for exploring the mountains and rivers - the mountains are within walking distance, and the hotel also offers motor bikes and cycles, and can arrange local guides. Erica and her team made us feel very welcome and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. I think they went above and beyond in terms of customer service, which we really appreciated. The food was great (western and Asian), and the room spacious and immaculate.
This boutique hotel is well managed by Erica and her team. Hotel is located in a 10 mile gallery with restricted entry for cars, making this place the perfect place to bicycle and quiet country side walk . Our morning cycle along the Yulong River and farms was the highlight of our trip. Words cannot describe how beautiful this place is so I am attaching photos. Breakfast is lovely - both the western options and I had one of the best Guilin Rice noodles here . We had a lovely meal at a local restaurant across the hotel , on the right about 3 mins away which gave new meaning to farm to table . Our chicken was freshly slaughtered wish veggies plucked from nearby farm .
Visited the Mountain Nest for 3 nights in November. The staff were great with excellent English and were careful to make sure all was well. Complementary bikes (good quality) for a 3 night stay, and nice big rooms with safes that can fit a large laptop. A nice restaurant, and great beer fish. We were completely happy with our choice and give it a 5 star recommendation.
