We stayed just one night in this lovely hotel. It is absolutely beautiful and the staff is very helpful and friendly. We loved 'Kee' who speaks English very well and is very helpful and nice. We were a bit surprised that the hotel is not in the old town Dali, but that was our own mistake, as it does say that it is located in the lovely Bai village Xizhou.

This hotel built in traditional Chinese style is very well designed and furnished and has great charm. The hotel manager and staff were especially helpful. The restaurant food was relatively simple but suited us with two young children very well.

Pros: The hotel is built around two charming, well-restored courtyards, with beautiful wood paneling and carvings. Service was excellent. Good western breakfast and the one dinner I had was very good. Walking distance to Xizhou Town morning market. Modernized room with spacious bathroom. Very quiet setting (there were no other guests, so I can't say how well-insulated the room is from other noise). Cons: Location: It's at least a 20 minute drive to Old Dali, which has a number of worthwhile attractions, and likewise further from Weisbaoshan with its numerous Taoist temples on the mountainside. It's not in a particularly attractive part of town, and there are only one or two other decent restaurants within a half hour walk. My room with a king bed was fine for me, traveling alone, but would have been tight for two people. The bed had a very firm mattress, which I don't like because I sleep on my side. I was told all their beds are like this, but they gladly and graciously added two mattress pads on top of it for me, which made it fine. (Of the seven hotels I stayed at in China on this trip, this was the only hotel where this was a problem for me.)

Thank you for taking the time out to review your recent experience with us. We are happy to read that you have enjoyed the stay. Your kind words have been shared and are appreciated by us all. We are sorry to hear that you said the mattress is a bit hard for you, even though we have added two layers of cushion to you. We have already given feedback to the company, and then we will consider a softer mattress to meet the needs of guests like you. Thank you again for your advice. We look forward to welcoming you back. Sky Valley Heritage Boutique Hotel.

Beautiful hotel. Good food. Great service. Not easy to find all of this in one boutique hotel. Every employee you come across in the hotel is there to make sure you have an exceptional vacation. I cannot say enough about this place. If you want to relax, be fed, energized, excited and feel like royalty - you must come here. Thank you to all the employees and friends at Sky Valley for making each vacation special.

Sky Valley is one of my favorite hotel if not the favorite. Special thanks to Mr. Kay (I believe he is the hotel receptionist). Out flight got delayed so we did not arrive at the hotel until closed to 21.00 and the hotel restaurant was already closed. When learned that we had not had dinner, Mr. Kay kindly asked the chef to cook dinner for us. And on the last day, we had to leave the hotel before the usual breakfast time to catch our flight and Mr Kay agreed to have the restaurant served us breakfast before we left. He was also very helpful in advising us on transpoprtation to Dali old town and the airport. The hotel is housed in a magnificant traditional Bai house which is more than 100 years old but has been tasefully restored. The room is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. It is within walking distance to Xizhou old town and easy to catch a mini-cab to Erhai Lake. Lastly, Yunnan ham fried rice at the hotel is very yummy! We had it on the first night and again on the last night.
