This hotel was absolutely beautiful. We stayed for two nights and booked a family and a standard room. They upgraded us to the family room and it was awesome! It is a little bit out of the way (which means it's a quiet hotel which was great!) but they have a shuttle that runs every hour from 9:30am to 9:30pm.... More

Visited Yangshuo last month (July 2016) with my son an really enjoyed staying at the Yangshuo Village Retreat. It's location slightly outside of the downtown area made it quiet and comfortable. We had a nice sized room with AC that worked like a charm during the 38degree heat we endured during our stay. The rooms were comfortable though the bathrooms... More

Comfortable hotel with friendly staff and a quiet atmosphere. We stayed two couples with our 5 children. Both the children and the parents enjoyed the stay. A car is needed to get from the Yangshou city center to the hotel, but it was nice and quiet in the evening. Recommended if there is a craving for European food - they... More

We booked a deluxe room (room 307) for 2 nights while in Yangshuo. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room but then the cracks started to appear. 2 of the large 3 Windows are facing onto 2 different construction sites; resulting in the curtains having to be closed constantly.

We've stayed here 3 times. This year we brought a large student group. Some of us stayed in the hotel and many students were in Cosy Garden across the street. The rooms are comfortable. The restaurant food is tasty; excellent breakfasts and good Chinese food, with fresh locally-sourced ingredients. The setting is very beautiful...truly a retreat. But the best part... More

We stayed here thinking it was close to town walking distance. Mistake, actually quite far to walk under the unbearable heat of South China in the summer. However, they do offer a free shuttle to and back from town every 30 min and we took advantage of it. Place is beautifully looked after and far away from the noise and... More
