Snow Lion Riverside Resort
Ranked #10 of 475 Hotels in Yangshuo County
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

We didn't stay at the snow lion, but we should have. We happened upon the resort while biking Yangshuo. It is quite well kept and romantic. We stayed for dinner and found the staff to be extremely nice to us! The food was very good too. We had the beer catfish, which is a specialty of the area. We climbed Yuping mini-mountain right next to the resort and enjoyed beautiful views of the river and the city of Yangshuo. Although the location is slightly outside of the city, it is plenty convenient and far more peaceful than a hotel downtown.
We returned to Snow Lion for dinner two days later because we enjoyed it so much. We were met by the same smiling, friendly staff. We left with a great impression of this place and the inspiration to write a review, which is a rarity for me! Hope you enjoy your visit, maybe we'll see you there :)

A work colleague and I stayed at the Snow Lion after working on a very intense film project in the US and China for a year. We chose to travel in central China to decompress and the Snow Lion Resort was PERFECT! William, the owner, and his staff were so friendly and kind. The rooms were clean and comfortable and, best of all quiet with a magnificent view of the beautiful grounds and mountains beyond. William also took us on THE most incredible bike ride of our lives through miles of stunning countryside where we saw classic rural China - paddy fields and people tending their crops and cattle, again against the back drop of the remarkable mountains. William also arranged for us to see the amazing Zhang Yimao sound and light show which is a "Must See" in Yang Shuo.
The food was excellent , especially breakfast, which is not always the case in China. You sit and eat looking out at the luxuriant foliage of the gardens - heaven.
There is also a beautiful pool although I didn't use it personally. Again, a great view.
Even though the resort is not right in town, there is a golf cart service which whisks you quickly too and from wherever you need to go , including from the river dock for the boats to and from Guilin. I have travelled a fair bit in China and the Snow Lion is easily my favourite place to have stayed. I cannot say enough good things about this excellent establishment and it's gracious owner, William.

The hotel is situated in a nice, quiet location. The rooms are very good and the staff are very helpful and speak good English. We enjoyed two nights here and I would recommend it. However, it is a little out of town, not really walking distance. That's not too much of a problem as they do run a large golf buggy into town and back a few times a day.

Dear YoungSnooker,

Thank you, we are sincerely grateful that you took the time to write this review, and we are very happy to hear that your enjoyed your stay here with us.

Regarding our location, we truly hope that you also appreciated the tranquillity and natural beauty of our rural setting, even though it comes at the cost of being somewhat removed (2,5 km) from the bustling downtown area. It is our perception that the picturesque countryside is one of the key ingredients in what it is that makes Yangshuo such a charming place, which is why we have made it our mission to try our very best to provide quality accommodation set in the midst of it.

We ofcourse also endeavor to provide hassle-free communication between our resort and downtown Yangshuo, either by our own shuttle bus (four times per day) or by arranging a local taxi, so that our guests may enjoy all the attractions the town has to offer. However, if you feel we could improve this or any of our other services in any way, please let us know. We would very much appreciate your input.

We hope that your visit to Yangshuo left you with many fond and beautiful memories, and that you would consider visiting us again sometime.


Kind regards

We just now visited the Snow Lion hotel and we've been enjoying our stay pretty much. We had a clean spacious twin room facing the swimming pool. The hotel is a bit out of centre but you can use their free shuttle bus (3x a day). There is free wifi and the restaurant serves a good breakfast or a fine diner. Let me just say that the girls of the reception and restaurant are so friendly and nice and they speak good english too. They also book tours or can get you tickets to see the light show. Happy we've been here!

My boyfriend and I had a very relaxing stay in the snow lion, hotel is very clean, rooms are spacious, staff are friendliest we have come across and could not do enough for us, I lost my wallet at one point during our stay and staff returned it to me with cards and money in tact for which I was extremely grateful thank you!
Located just outside of Yangshou but hotel offers a free shuttle bus a few times a day, you pay 5 yuan for the bus at other times and was always available to us. 10 minutes to the town.
We only had breakfast here but it was delicious and very good value. Hotel also has a beautiful pool area and is two minutes from the river, surroundings are peaceful and beautiful, cannot recommend the snow lion highly enough!

A 2 night break in countryside of Yangshou at the Snow Lion Riverside hotel. The rooms in the new building are clean, large and the beds are firm (normal Chinese standard). Views are not the best. Some construction is ongoing at new builds around the hotel, but this is not off putting. The river is 2 minute walk from the hotel and not visible from our room. Recommend the food and the young team are very attentive and friendly. A good choice for a simple break.
If you get the chance hire bikes. Great fun...

Thank you for your review! We very much appreciate your input, and we're glad to hear that you were happy with our staff and services.

Unfortunately there's not much we can do about the ongoing construction near our hotel, since it's not part of our property. However, if you were to come back to stay with us again, we will make sure that you get a room with a better view next time.

Very friendly and helpful staff who can help arrange all your schedules perfectly if you are not a planning kind ;). Food in the restaurant is just amazing I'd like to learn cooking from the chef if I had more time. Nice and clean rooms with reasonable price. Not far from noisy dusty county center but with clean scenic view. Nice swimming pool too. Make you relax.
