“Must be here once in your lifetime!”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

What an unforgettable trip in XingPing! If you want to be surrounded by mountain and river, far from crowed, XingPing Our Inn must be your first choice!

We, three girls from HongKong stayed here for 5D4N!! Actually it's not a travelling peak period, we were so relaxing to be in the guesthouse day and night. We almost spend our every meal with the host family, Xiong (the owner) is a very talent kitchen-man that make us so full all the time!!! Must try his food there! (e.g. fish with beer, traditional duck etc.)

Reli enjoy walking around the mountain and in the Xingping Old Street, people were so pure. Of coz, don't miss the multi-cultural local market, ask Xiong and his wife for the best going time!

The weather was so cold in early February, but we were so warm with the heater!

Room Tip: I think family rooms are better even u go as a couple, coz there will be much more space for putting...

We spent 5 days at Our Inn with our two kids (7 and 9), and even celebrated Christmas Eve there! The hotel owner is very friendly and can arrange transportation and trips in the area. The scenery is extremely beautiful and the village nice. We made short hikes in the mountains nearby. Superb food. The family room was a bit cold as we arrived, and heated up in 1-2 days. The restaurant was too cold but as I said the food was superb! Strong recommendation.

I could've spent an entire week at Our Inn; but, unfortunately, plans didn't permit it. Shirly and her family were the perfect hosts. The location is ideal: across the river from Xingping and surrounded by these incredible karst formations. The food was great; the beer was satisfying; the ambience was perfect!

We spent a couple of nights here after the hustle and bustle of Beijing and Xian. A brief ferry ride across the river surrounded by schoolchildren and chickens, then collected by Shirly who took our bags on the back of her bike and led us to Our Inn in the middle of Dahebei Village.
Nothing was too much trouble for Shirly, arranging trips and even accompanying us on an evening trip to watch the cormorant fishing.
After 6pm, the boat to Xingping stops, which means a quiet night in Our Inn sampling their excellent menu - the beer fish speciality is highly recommended.
OK, the beds may be a little firm for some but this is a lovely place to stay surrounded by Karst scenery and ideally seperated from the busier Xingping town.
On our last day, we asked Shirly to organise us a transfer 25 km south to Yangshuo. Why bother with a taxi when we could walk from Our Inn to the banks of the Li River and get on a bamboo raft Shirly had organised to drift down to Yangshuo in 90 minutes and admire the great scenery on the way!
A very hospitable respite from the cities. Keep up the good work, Shirly!

The rooms are large, clean and bright with a small touch that makes them charming. We enjoyed our stay there. Shirly is very hospitable and provides good advice on the best things to do there. It is definetely a place we would recommend, quiet, warm atmosphere, and plenty of walks to do around Xing ping!

Xingping Our Inn proved to be the perfect base from which to explore the enchanting karst scenery along the Li River north of Yangshuo. The inn is located in Dahebei Village, reached by a short ferry ride across the Li River from Xingping. We booked rooms for two nights before our arrival, and then extended our stay to include a third night within hours after arriving. Up to this point, we had traveled for over a week in mostly very urban parts of China. Yangshuo struck us as a very populous and not-very-restful city, and even Xingping has already become a bustling tourist center. Our Inn gave us peace and quiet and great access to the river, Xingping and a delightful mix of hiking destinations.

Our Inn is run by Shirley, who speaks excellent English, is very courteous and hospitable, and is an excellent source of information on the area. Our rooms were charming, clean and quiet. We enjoyed having breakfast and supper at Our Inn, and lunch in Xingping. As we found everywhere else in China, our bed was quite firm. We would gladly have stayed longer had our schedule allowed. This was our first trip to China, and I was especially pleased to find a very good assortment of birds, which included streak-breasted scimitar babblers and greater coucal in the neighborhood of Our Inn and several fork-tailed sunbirds on the hike to Snail Hill.

My friend and I stayed at this lovely inn for two nights. It was the best decision we made when planning our trip to picturesque and magical Guilin. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, you feel right at home when you arrive. The inn is cozy, clean and comfortable, and you're surrounded by mountains and pomelo trees- It's so peaceful and quiet, perfect for a relaxed, natural retreat. The Inn's owner, Shelley, speaks fluent English and she was extremely helpful and kind. The entire staff at 'Our Inn' made our stay unforgettable. I can't wait to go back there, and I recommend this place without hesitation!
