He knows the area and will assist on every detail of your travel with information, arranging other hotel bookings - for us at TLG, transportation, etc. You can relay on Bruce to make your holiday...

Bruce and his staff were very helpful and offered good advice about the area. Nice rooms, all the comforts, clean, no problems. Excellent breakfast. Great value for money. Met other nice travelers while staying there and enjoyed a drink and a chat in the courtyard. Thank you Bruce!

Bruce and Bella and their assistant try to satisfy all their visitors. Their warmth and hospitality made all of us forget how cold the morning was during the Christmas holiday by preparing a huge, delicious, breakfast with local offerings chased with continuous cups of coffee and tea. On Christmas Eve, they had a bar-b-que with all the guests taking turns...

Really enjoyed my time here, very relaxed and straightforward. All the staff were super friendly. Wi-fi is good and available throughout. The water in the shower was generally a little bit too hot - but that's the only downside. Taxi drivers seem to struggle to find this, so have Bruce arrange the transfer for your checkin - it's the same...

Our three nights stay felt homely in a quiet, clean, well-maintained environment. Bruce and company (wife and assistant) kept us well-informed on things to do around Lijiang starting from his correspondence in emails. We opted for their breakfasts at a very reasonable price and the wife served us ample local delicacies. The garden was a big hit with my mother...
