There is a Sheraton and a Holiday Inn in the area and these would have been a better choice to visit the Nine Villages Valley. This hotel is fairly large but the whole place needs a good clean. The hotel only turns on limited lighting in the common areas (probably to save electricity), so the whole hotel seems very dim. The rooms were a good size but fairly tatty although the bathroom was quite clean. Hot water was only provided between certain times and there was no heating in the room. There was free internet in the rooms but nobody in the hotel spoke enough English to provide a password, so I just unhooked one of their computers and plugged the network cable into our laptop to get internet connection.
The hotel restaurant was not open for dinner (or lunch) and we went across the road into the village to get a meal. Breakfast catered for the Chinese tour groups and there was no western food at all (except some fried eggs). The orange juice was warm and the tea was cold.
The area would be very pretty if the Chinese tour groups weren't loving it to death with their millions of visitors and the guide's loud spaekers.
If we were visiting again, we would opt for one of the more upmarket hotels in the area.
