Located at the most beautiful part of the Yulong river with friendly service and good atmosphere. We will recommend it for all our friends and we will love to come back. A perfect starting point for biking along the river.

One of the best vacations. Fantastic play to stay. Must recommend. Our only regret was not to stay longer. Exceptionally serene as the place is next to the river. Staff runs it like a small tavern. Homely feel

The Mountain Retreat is a manor style accomodation ideally located alongside the Yulong River. The sunsets over the river are beautiful, which you can enjoy over a local beer and excellent food served by the restaurant. There is a large stock of decent rental bikes available. The hotel also offers a wide range of other potential activities (e.g. we did...

We loved it here. We stayed 4 nights and ate a lot of very good meals here too. I'd particularly recommend the local style fried rice, spring rolls, braised pumpkin, sizzling beef, and spring onion egg pancake thingy. The location is wonderful, being right on the peaceful Yulong river. We sat on the banks and ate most of our meals...

Really loved this accommodation. Loved the position. Quiet and out of town but there's a short walk to a ferry which takes you straight into town. So convenient! The staff are so lovely and helpful. Loved it from the minute we got there! Messaged them before arriving and they promptly answered all our questions. Organised transport from the train station...

This is a lovely, slightly off-beat - maybe the word is quaint - family run boutique hotel. It's near a mountain but not up a mountain - it's by the side of the river in a mostly tranquil spot. Shortly after the cruise boats arrive from the Li River cruise, large numbers of tourists on bamboo punts come down the...

Do you want to escape the hustle and bustle of China? Go to Yangshuo and stay at the Mountain Retreat. The setting is stunning right on the river with a back drop of cast landscape for which the region is famous This is not a modern chain hotel. It's a hotel offering an alternative to the totally modern stereotypical hotels...

This place is divine!! We had three very relaxing days here. Just sitting on their terrace and watching the bamboo rafts go by was all I needed to re-charge my batteries. We loved our spacious hill view double room with comfortable beds. I just really love their concept! They pay so much attention to detail starting with a nice welcome...

Now my wife and I disagree about this place. What we both agree is that the location on the Yulong river is beautiful. There is good outdoor space to sit and watch the bamboo rafts of tourists drift slowly downstream, and the scenery is fantastic. I found the room wanting. I accept it is a "eco" resort (although how eco...

Dear Mr. Bell, Thank you for your kind words about your experience with us and your helpful suggestions. We do have power strips inside each bed side cabinet for extra plugs, and we also have additional power strips available from housekeeping. Guests just need to ask. Also in our guest information book on this same table, there is our suggestion...
