March was perfect along this beautiful and completely quite shore of the Yulong River; no heat, no mosquitos. A very welcoming and gentle staff, perfect dinners based on local recipes and ingredients, a fireplace with a fire in a dining room that invited to conversation with other guests.

This is in a truly beautiful setting by the river and with mountains all around. The rooms though appearing basic are designed like that, with sustainability high up the priorities. Most important is that it's very restful and I slept better than for ages. Food is very good with wide choice and excellent value, and all the ladies running the...

It really is this beautiful. Peaceful and relaxing. The staff is fabulous, food was excellent, accommodations comfortable in that rustic farm village sort of way, like you're visiting your country family that you haven't seen in a long time.

Dear Jill and Steve, We are so thrilled with your glowing review!
