“Lovely peoply. Stay here, you won't regret it!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Our room was rather spacious and we very much enjoyed the lovely people who served us our freshly cooked meals in the evening. The food they serve is just mind blasting, regarding the fact that they prepare it in a small shed right in front of you - you should definitely take every opportunity to taste it!
The transport to the station to the huang shan cablecar is seamless and well organised and we definitely enjoyed our three nights stay at this location!
If you don't insist on having a freshly furnished bathroom (shower wetting sink and floor) this definitely is a great location to stay at to explore the beauty of huangshan. If you have the chance to bring along your own mosquito net - take it!

As others have confirmed, Wayne could not be more helpful . I was travelling alone speaking only English and throughout the process even after leaving Huangshan he assisted by phone and text .
The lodge is unpretentious and suited e perfectly . The cost was modest and included local breakfast with option to pay extra for America Breakfast . There was a great little restaurant in the grounds serving generous portions of fantastic food very cheaply .

The staff were really helpful with the hotel minibus readily available and organised a driver and bus for e to take a private visit to Chekan an ancient village in the area which Wayne had informed me of . This was done promptly and at a modest cost .
It is an ideal base to see Mount Huangshan without paying inflated prices to stay on the mountain .

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the rooms in the grounds . I was adjacent to breakfast room and across fro the li...

I had a lovely stay here. After a long day of travelling I arrived relatively late, on a cold night. I was greeted by Wayne and his friendly staff and made to feel welcome right away and even given a free room upgrade. Wayne had kindly kept the kitchen open, expecting hungry guests, and he was right. The dishes he recommended we try were good value, not to mention delicious and hearty (exactly what you need on a cold night). My room was toasty warm for me as soon as dinner was finished and I was ready for a good nights sleep.

A standard Chinese breakfast was included each morning. A "western" breakfast is available for a small fee. I stuck with the Chinese breakfast, but the other options looked pretty delicious also!

Wayne and his staff were knowledgable about the mountain range and the specific areas not to miss. I ended up extending my stay one extra night. As I was trying to make travel arrangements for the following day, Wayne suggested visiting Hangzhou, which is where he was heading the next morning. He didn't mind me tagging along with him and helping me out with the bus and directions once we arrived in Hangzhou.

Overall Huangshan and my stay at Pine Ridge Lodge were highlights of my trip to China. The lodge is modest, but clean and comfortable and situated very close to the mountain in a peaceful location. Don't miss out on this wonderful place!

We had a wonderful time at the Pine Ridge Lodge!
The price is alright, the place is clean and cosy and we had a very comfortable stay (very quiet and calm). Furthermore, the staff is super friendly. The Owner speaks perfect english and helped us really a lot to organize our further trip!

So many thanks again from Wilhelm & Julia!!

We liked the place very much. Maybe it can use maintenance but I think for the price it was good value. Friendly staff and owner. They can arrange your transport and the owner is helpful with information. We had a double room in the garden, which we liked because it feels like being outdoor. That's nice in China! The restaurant has no heater, so in november it was cold! But the food is nice. Chinese breakfast is included, for Western breakfast you have to pay (and still get the Chinese breakfast also :-) )

The hotel can use some maintanace. One of the towels had a stain and the room could use another scrub. It is all a bit outdated and quite basic. The WC is literally in your shower, so it gets wet evey time you shower. The shower curtain feels like a real curtain, which felt a bit filthy. And the hotel has very thin walls so you can hear everything that happens on the hallway or in a room nearvy. If it wans't for the (very) nice owner I would have given this hotel a lower rating.

We booked this hotel for 1 night at the yellow mountains. Upon arrival we decided 1 night would be too short so we asked the owner of the hotel whether we could book another room.

However there was no more room available so for the same charge per night at his hotel he would put us the following night in a much better hotel (which was indeed the case). The next morning we had breakfast (chinese breakfast is included in the price, but it isn't really my cup of tea). We ordered the american breakfast which is for an extra charge, but because he felt so bad he couldn;t let us stay another night he gave us the breakfast for free.

There is also a shuttle which you can take to whatever you want in the village, just give the driver 10 RMB per drive.

Overall it was a very basic hotel which could use some updating. However the owner made up a lot for this. He speaks good English and always tries to help. He also runs a restaurant at the hotel (where the receptionists are the waitresses in the evening) which had very nice food for a very acceptable price and had a nice atmosphere. Just don't forget the anti-musquito spray.

We did stay 4 nights. 2 nights in Standard Queen, 2 nights in superior room

The hotel :
Quiet and nice Location

Staff :
The owner is very very very friendly and very very very helpful
Staff at the reception : one of them is very unfriendly and always playing with ipad. Only the owner speak english.
Staff at the restaurant : One of them (older women) is very friendly and helpfull.
Staff at the breakfast : she's wonderful, always smiling, always happy. It's nice to see that.

Restaurant :
It's quite expensive for chinese food but it's good. I recommend to go eat there. Quiet place to eat.

Breakfast :
Chinese breakfast is included. Toast, coffee....are not free. Two pieces of Toast cost 15 rmb (2,5 $)

Room : big disappointment (disillusionment)
1) Standard Queen
We did choose standard queen. The room does not match the picture on the agoda's site.
The window did not close well, the door did not close well. I did hit my head when i go to the bathroom
So, i did ask to change room.
I did change for a twin room (only available) in the main buildings. View on the wall. Air conditioning is poorly located, just above the head. So i did not sleep well. furniture is very old. Everything look old in the room. Carpet is dirty.

2) Superior room : 1st floor.
Same as standard queen, just bit bigger. We can't use wardrobe coz it was broken.
the door does not close well. We had to slam the door. The carpet is dirty

I hope he could do the work to renovate the hotel. It could be a great place.
