This is a rustic country inn that has a/c, wi-fi,flat panel TV, DVD player, ceiling fan, and amazing river views from your room. Every thing worked just fine - there is even a safe box in your room, and there are a couple of free communiy pc's in th reception area if you didn't bring your own laptop. The staff...

I think most of the other reviewers have already explained why this is such a great hotel. At all times we felt like that staff were genuinely concerned about our stay. When we arrived their first priority was to let us drop off our bags and have a (complimentary) drink, while they sorted out the check in formalities (unlike a...

From the superb food, excellent service, and patient staff with wonderful sightseeing advice to an unbelievable river and Karst mountain vista from the delightfully rustic room, everything was fantastic! What more is there to say, but this is the only place to stay in Yangshuo. You will be able to relax and enjoy every moment here.

What can I say about the Mountain Retreat which hasn't been said many times before! We were lucky enough to spend five nights there at the end of our China trip and it's a truly special place in a wonderful location. The calm relaxed atmosphere and the wonderful cossetting by the staff give it a feel somewhat akin to a...

I really can't imagine staying anywhere else in Yangshuo! To me, you come here for the scenery and at YMR you open your curtains every morning to a postcard view of the river. It is stunningly beautiful and peaceful. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is OK, but the restaurant does offer enough variety that you don't ever...

Strangely I think this placel is in many ways the nicest, most relaxed place we have ever stayed, even though it is only 3 stars. Everything seemed so simple and nicely done. The setting is fantastic - that in itself makes it worthwhile. The lodge just gets it right. Lovely staff, nice food, clean, enough comforts of home (free wifi,...

We had a fantastic time at the Mountain Retreat, without doubt the highlight of our two week trip to China. We stayed in a family room with a balcony overlooking the river where we could watch the bamboo rafts float by. Staff were friendly and helpful. We hired bikes from the hotel and had a great couple of days cycling...

We were in room 201A--I'll bet this is the best room in the house. We rate the balcony among the top three balconies in all our travels because the view of the Yulong River and the karst formations behind is spectacular. The rooms are large and the beds, comfortable. This is not luxurious, but very nice. And it's great to...

We stayed here as one of the last stops on a 3-week tour of China. The staff was very attentive and spoke more English than anywhere we stayed in China. The food is delightful, and plentiful. The Italian food at their sister property was a welcome yummy break from Chinese food. The location is a bit out of Yangshuo town,...

We were looking for a privately guided photo tour of the Yangshuo area, and discovered that Ronald van de Weerd, who works at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, is an excellent photographer and will lead photo tours of the area on occasion. We were very lucky to have him take us on a photo tour for 5 days in mid October,...
