We had a really great stay at the Mountain View Retreat - the hotel is perfectly located for some of the main attractions in Yangshuo (Moon Hill, Dragon Cave, Li River etc) and yet still felt peaceful and relaxed. The room was large, clean and had everything you could need. The restaurant at the hotel had a wide range of local and international dishes all reasonably priced.
The staff at the hotel were really helpful and attentive - many spoke English but those who didn't would still attempt to help with a large smile and a ton of patience. Staff were able to provide recommendations regarding activities/trips and could organise various tours if requested. We would really recommend hiring bikes (20 Yuan a day) and exploring the local area - the scenery is breathtaking and the roads easy to navigate. We sadly missed the name of the lovely lady manning the reception desk but we were really impressed with her warmth and willingness to help. We also had a lovely driver (possible called PanPan - sorry if the spelling is way off) who was great fun and, again, very patient.
Overall a really fantastic stay and we would highly recommend this hotel to others.
