Our group of 11 arrived at 9:30 p.m. and they welcomed us with tea and cookies. We had the king size room right above the reception with a lovely balcony, and view of the mountains in the distance. There are no TVs in the rooms but there was a DVD player, flat screen TV and a large selection of current...

There is no denying that the location of the hotel is superb with stunning views. It's small and all the better for it and the food served is excellent, beautifully cooked and amongst the best we had during our trip to China which took in 5 other places. The rooms are simply furnished but offer all the facilities needed for...

This hotel was GREAT! Great location, personal and great service, and a perfect place to relax and enjoy the fantastic scenery! I really recommend this hotel if you are going to Yangshuo, I would much rather stay here than in the city itself, this will make you enjoy the nature in a completely different way than if you are only...

Stayed in a family suite with 2 friends and it was a lovely experience. Don't expect down comforters and sparkling bathroom tiles, but the place is well kept and the surrounding landscape scenery looks like it came out of a postcard. The staff all speak English and were extremely accommodating with all our little requests and queries. They arranged everything...

Superb riverside location, coupled with efficient, English-speaking, always helpful staff will make this small hotel your favorite of your visit to China. Whether drawing you a map for your bike excursion, arranging a private river raft trip, or whisking your dishes away after dinner by the river, this is an extremely well-run hotel, staffed entirely by an exceptional group of...

The Yangshuo Mountain Retreat (YMR) shows that you don't need to be 5 star hotel to earn a 5.0 rating! After arriving on Guilin airport, we were picked up by our ride that we reserved through the hotel. Yangshuo is about an hour from Guilin and we found the 300 RMB that we had to pay for our ride was...

the staff was always kind and helpful, and they organize a lot of excursions in all the most amazing places around Yangshuo. The garden is amazing and you can eat at the really good restaurant of the hotel outside with the great view of the Yulong river and the carsic mountains. The room was wonderful and confortable. Great place!

In July 2011 my family of four spent about five days at the Mountain Retreat and it was the highlight of our three-week trip to China.
