The most important thing for me was the quality of the entire staff at the Snow Lion Resort. They were welcoming, efficient, friendly, skilled at their jobs, and went out of their way to accommodate our sometimes troublesome requests. We shared a generous suite - two bedrooms, two baths and a large parlor - with another couple, four of us... More

I can hardly say enough about this resort. The owners go out of their way to make sure their guests are completely accommodated. The rooms are excellent; the staff, charming; the adjoining gift shop, the best we saw in China; the cafe, delicious food; the view on the lake, lovely. But, most of all, William and Linda are the kind... More

A friend and myself placed a last-minute booking at this resort and we couldn't have been happier with the result. The rooms are spacious, clean and come with balconies where you can enjoy a beautiful view. The bathroom was clean, and towels etc were replaced daily the moment we went downstairs to enjoy breakfast. The staff were extremely friendly, and... More

We went there with colleagues for a sales seminar. Rooms are very clean and staff is very welcoming (which is kind of rare in all China hotels). Of course the hotel is not totally new and may need some improvement but I would recommend it definitely for a family who wish to discover the area. They are organising a lot... More

After a river cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo we decided that instead of returning back to Guilin the same day we would stay overnight and see something of Yangshuo. What a great decision it was choosing the Snow Lion Resort hotel. This is a family run hotel with a warm welcome and desire to please the customer. It is about... More

I know William and Linda for years, they have build a truly excellent hotel just outside the city's town center. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. This is an excellent value for your money.

The hotel is about a 10 minute bicycle ride from the centre of Yanshou, which can be hugely busy. While it's a wonderful city to explore, the most fun we had was cycling (bikes available at the hotel) completely the other way from town into the country side. It was truly "authentic". dirt roads, farmers with scythes. We came across... More
