We stayed here in late September when visiting the rice terraces. The rices terraces were amazing at that time of year.
We took a bus to the parking lot below Dazai Village and hiked up to Tiantou. It took us about 2 hours. The directions provided by the inn were very clear and helpful and we made it without any problems.
We only stayed one night and ate both supper and breakfast the next day at the hotel. You have to order your meals a few hours ahead of your planned dining time so the hotel has enough time to prepare your meals.
The meals were ok but not amazing (I'd rate them a 3 out of 5). There was a large group of Chinese tourists staying at the hotel as well so we were stuck on the top floor in the back corner. We booked 2 rooms so that we had enough sleeping space for our family of 4.
The rooms were ok. The beds were great. The private bathroom was small and had a squat toilet. The shower soaked the entire bathroom because it was so small. The wifi was workable but not great.
The floors of the old building are very creaky so moving around at night, even carefully, you make a lot of noise. The view out of the common area windows is amazing. Definitely worth considering a room on that side of the building.
The rooms cost us 328 RMB total for 2 rooms.
The staff were really nice and fairly helpful. They provided us with good directions for getting to the best viewpoints via WeChat.
