A nice stop on our journey to the Gorge. I was really hesitating, based on the mix reviews on here and other platforms. However, our room was one of the best and that view is one of a kind. The food at the restaurant was very good, although quite slow (but this is because everything is homemade). We had no...

We stayed here on our second night doing the Tiger Leaping Gorge trek. Sean's offers clean and comfortable rooms and good food. There are also very nice outdoor areas at the guesthouse to eat dinner / relax after trekking. Sean also has good knowledge of the local area and can help with onward treks as add-ons to the main gorge...

Why go past Tina's for another mile to Sean's? For the best views of Yulong Snow Mountain; the opportunity to experience the life in this working Tibetan farm community - the goats being driven down the street, the people working in the walnut orchards, and the women gossiping on their doorsteps; and the expansive hospitality offered by Sean and his...

My hubby and I stayed at Sean's way back in 2008 and we both still have wonderful memories of the 3 days we spent there. The place looks to have grown a bit in that time but has not lost any of it's charm. Sean was experienced with guiding us and with what a variety of hotel guests need and...

This is my first very negative review, and it has a number of reasons. First of all, after reading on the web site "If you need any more help just let us know here and We will be happy to help you as much as We can. You can call directly ...", I called the listed phone number. I asked...

Stayed here for one night, went for the cheap double bed room for 70 had a shared toilet/shower area downstairs. As it was low season I think we may have been the only ones there so it was fine, hot water both times we showered. Room faced the mountains and was perfectly warm enough with the duvet and blankets provided....

We almost stopped at Tina's (so tired) but so glad we didn't! Walking down to Walnut Grove you see a different part of the gorge. Staff are friendly, the food good (try the dumplings, walnut and berry porridge) and rooms warm. In the morning they showed us the lower track to walk to the river and an amazing end to...

Reading the reviews and how Sean's was one of the "original guesthouses" in the TLG, I had high expectations. The location is good and the views are spectacular. The staff was kind and helpful. I even spoke to Sean earlier in the day and he was incredibly informative. Bravo. Some of a few points as to why I am marking...

A fitting end to a cracking trek. Well worth the extra 2.5 km gently downhill from Tina's Guest House. Tina's is regarded as the point of reference in Middle Gorge Village: reliable travel info, ice-cold Tsingtao, kicking views from the bar restaurant, but a bit lacking in character otherwise. Not sure whether to describe Sean as old school - too...

We arrived there shortly before sunset after an exhausting but adventurous day of hiking the tiger leaping gorge high trail. The staff was friendly, the food was good and some of it authentic Tibetan (as far as I can judge). It's a comfortable accommodation for a fair price.. Also we had a nice chat with the guest house owner. Definitely...
