We took one of the newer proper bedrooms upstairs. The rooms are like a higher-end farmer's house (nongjiayuan) but priced like a mid-range hotel. They do have (more or less) hot water and a western toilet, and they're clean but basic. What you're paying for is a gorgeous view from the large window and a chance to spend the night in a beautiful place. There are cheaper (Chinese-only) hotels in the towns, or you can stay at the international youth hostel up the road, but the views aren't as good. Jacky's next door is similar to Sunny in quality and price.
The food was typical Chinese farmer's house food, neither above nor below average, not particularly local in character, maybe just slightly expensive for what it is. They have a standard laowai breakfast that is French toast and eggs and a pancake-like thing that's not bad given where you are, or you can get made-to-order noodle soup.
Previous reviews mention the service. When we were there (August 2013), the hotel was managed by a young woman who appeared to be an outside hire and spoke both English and Putonghua well. Her performance was professional and courteous.
