My priority for visiting this place was Tiger Leaping Gorge. The Maple Leaf is located right in the Shuhe area or the old town. Much of the area is closed to vehicular traffic. The taxi driver dropped me at the wrong place. A call to Paul and he came on a motorbike to pick me up without any fuss or... More

We booked a tour through them for Tiger Leaping Gorge and they also arranged for bicycle rentals - the ride to Baisha and beyond was a highlight. The... More

I stayed here with a group for a few days and loved it. Will and his family provided us with great breakfasts and a wonderful welcome to this lovely town. The beds were great and comfortable and Will and the family were brilliant hosts. Did I mention the lovely banana bread for breakfast?

The Maple leaf in is just superb for a budget stay. Hosts, Wil and Anna, and their happy staff are very cheerful and accommodating to all who stay there. They put their heart and soul into their establishment and it shows... From the excellent quality of their coffees and hot chocolates, to their (apparently) famous Banana Bread and rooms which...

A bit sceptical at first as a lot of the reviews were one off reviews but glad I ended up here. It's not set in Lijiang Ancient Town but in Shuhe (much nicer!) Beautiful, relaxing and a place I do recommend staying. Super friendly owners and just a great place to enjoy a coffee/drink, read a book, chill out and... More
