If you aren't going for the golf stay clear of this soulless mausoleum of a hotel. We thought we would be staying in the centre of Shanghai but at the last minute we were told we would be staying in this dump which is in the Shanghai equivalent of Watford but without the charisma. Foam filled pillows that felt as...

This was our last hotel on the trip,golf course resort. Very large cold foyer, patchy wifi, absolutely nothing around the hotel as in shops or restaurants. Breakfast selection ran out when I asked staff about refilling items they said none left.

The rooms in this hotel are in need of refurbishment. They are very dated and most of the woodwork is chipped around handles, sockets are coming off the walls and the lighting control panel by the bed is upside down. This is probably as it has fallen off the wall before. There is also a clear language barrier between staff...

The location is far away from the downtown Shanghai. Stayed there for 2 nights in a golf course view room. The road to the hotel was dark at night and it's in the middle of nowhere. No convenience store nearby the hotel within walking distance. The room was standard and wifi was signal was a bit weak in our room....

In a great setting with lovely views of the golf course from the balcony of the rooms, but that is about all this hotel has going for it. A strange smell lingers around the place, and the rooms are not very clean or fully functional (my shower was only working sporadically). Bed was uncomfortable and I'm not sure my aircon...

This is a great hotel with a good location inside a Golf course, It's the first time I have been on a hotel in Shanghai with a green view. They have the fastest WiFI experienced in China, maybe due to a lack of guests. Room is very nice, and the breakfast is ok.... Now to the odor, as soon as...

Cold, dirty, terrible food and awful service. We are wearing jackets inside, the breakfast food is clearly lasts nights leftovers and bread is stale. Rooms need to be cleaned properly, like vacuumed!

For a recognised international hotel brand you would expect service staff to speak English. The front desk was perfect but as for breakfast restaurant staff, other than good morning their English is non existent. Also their failure to clear tables to allow others to sit down for breakfast is terrible, I stayed 3 nights and cleared tables for breakfast twice....
