“Basic rooms, great staff, fantastic food”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

A group of eight of us stayed here last year. The rooms are basic, but functional. Don't expect the ritz! But, Joan is lovely, as are her extended family who all get involved in the business. We turned up not the bamboo forest with no idea where to go, when up pops an older woman with a mobile phone. She shoves it at me, and I hear Joan's voice on the other end. This woman was her mother come to help buy our tickets and drive us to the guest house!

From there on inn Joan's family were great. Her cousin(?) drove us round in his car (for a hire fee) and we ate at the restaurant every night, along with most of the locals.

Joan took one of our friends to the local hairdressers to get a trim, and she also came with us to do some KTV! All in all, cant recommend highly enough!

The website takes a little time to load, but it's here

This is one of the sweetest places I have stayed in throughout my travels in China. The owner's name is Joan, and her father owns the best restaurant in the area right downstairs. I was sceptic when Joan first told me about how popular the restaurant was, but in the evening, people began flocking in and it was just great.
Joan can speak english very well, which makes it so much easier for those who cant speak Chinese.
The family members were so kind to us, the food was wonderful and fresh and the boarding was modest, but clean and very nice.
The location is very convenient, and you can get to the Bamboo Sea walking area quite easily and come back for a great dinner.
I definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to the area (Its a beautiful scenic place to visit anyway).

The guest house has a new website now so you can take a look:
