Great location and can help with transfer from closeby airport or train station.
Location is excellent and they will drop you of right at the shuttle bus (if you want to save your strengths for the mountain rather than walking the 15-20 min to the bus to the eastern steps 19yuan).
Great advice and map of how to approach the mountain.
Single around 110 rmb and double around 160 well worth it with clean, basic private bathroom (a bit on the small side for the single). There is a restaurant in the garden (albeit a bit expensive) and breakfast is included (but very basic Chinese style, for western you pay).
The place is close to the road, but still quiet. There is a river in the front where locals seems to swim in the summer (but I probably wouldn't recommend it). We stayed stayed two nights and the second some guest upstairs were a bit noisy, so you may get unlucky there - but I am sure that if we had complaint they would have offered us another room.
They can help arrange private car to your next destination, but I suggest you bargain a bit as always in China.
It helps to speak Chinese, but they do command some english on site.
The mountain is amazing and in August it was not that crowded for a Chinese top tourist site, and the weather was perfect! Enjoy!
