We stayed three nights and I can't tell anything positiv. The hosts were seating in the front area all the time but would not help at all (no english speaker) or do some absolutely necessary cleaning. There are noisy dogs everywhere in the Inn. The rooms are extremly dirty and are not getting cleaned during the stay. It was cold...

Dreadful service, the worst in China. totally incompetent reception staff who sat and messanged on QQ totally ignoring that we were trying to speak to them, The only good thing about the place was the manager's wife who was very nice, but the main staff were very rude and useless. Very dark dingy smelly cold room. Nasty little dogs that...

On arriving at the Inn we were met by one of the staff unfortunately due to the language barrier we were unable to communicate which caused some confusion on filling in the register, the owner was out at a party we later found out. Our room was nicely decorated although I would have expected better for the cost of the...

woodenman inn was a very relaxing and calm place to stay - the bonus for us with our 4yr old was having a movie room, foosball and board games.

We have stayed 3 or 4 nights and there were no problems of any kind in communication, as it can often be the case in China as the owner is Singaporean and speaks a fluent English. The inn is small and cozy, rooms were nice but would need some maintenance (bathroom door know fell apart after I touched it), and...

Because of previous good reviews about the Woodenman Inn, I booked a room for 10 nights. After two nights, the cold and noise drove me away. While December-January in Lijiang is pleasant outdoors (around 15C), it is another matter indoors. The heater in my room was inadequate and because the room received no sunshine during the day, it was like...

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We were having a Christmas gathering that night and all the guests in the Inn were celebrating together which caused the unusual amount of noise at that late hour. In future, we will look for ways to reduce the noise level during festivities especially if they go into...
