Hello Lydia, we are sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied about our price and view. The room you booked is directly facing the mountains. During your stay, we strived to meet your commands, including by helping you book your transportation on your behalf (without any further service charge) even before you arrived. However, reading your after-stay disagreement on here is rather disappointing, especially putting what we had done to serve you throughout your stay into account. Anyway, we thank you for staying with us, and hope you had a safe & fun trip back home.

Great view of the mountain ”
We stayed here based on the recommendation of a colleague and it was what we have expected a countryside villa should be. It might not be good for the foreigners usual expectation but everything is about as standard as it should be for us to spend a night there. The best part of staying in there was what's outside the window. We went with a cloudy weather and we couldn't see much anything anywhere in Qingjing Farm area. It was all foggy and cloudy. Then the next morning we woke up early hoping for a better day to see sunrise over the mountain from the bedroom window, we were able to see the surrounding high mountains clearly with the sea of clouds below in the valley and that view along was worth the stay. We only had a window of 30 minutes or so for the awesome view before the clouds and fog cover everything up again when the sun rised over the mountain.

Pretty place, decent interior, decent view, staffs (family members) are pushy salesperson”
The place is among the prettiest, interior is decent equip (not Hotel standard but not lacking), decent looking, not much view as only 1 side has it. The other 2 room probably has better view. Staff was pushy and keep insisting we get their package to view hehuan mountain and said my room can view sunrise which is not true. It’s not the correct angle and there’s a big tree outside. End up we bought the overpriced package. The driver was good though.
Reviewed April 04, 2018
Hello Joseph, Thank you for your stay, but we would like to clarify a few things. 1. We did not push you or insist you at all to get "our" package to Hehuan Mountain. Considering hiring a van would be more comfortable, we offered you two options - carpool & hiring a van. We bargained the price of hiring a van for you, and let you choose whichever you finalize. You guys discussed for around 5 minutes, during which you preferred carpool at first, but then you decided to hire a van finally. We did not push you at all during this time. We are sorry to hear you felt that way. 2. The room you booked was facing east (the mountains), with a tree outside, as viewer could see on Agoda or our official website. One can see the sunrise from the balcony, but of course, it is not as panoramic as one can see when they particularly take a sunrise tour.

Cozy place”
It is really cozy. Near Qing Cing Farm. But it is further up, only one bus to go up there, rather inconvenience. if you choose to walk up, it is an up-slope.
Reviewed March 07, 2018
Hello Christina, thank you for your recommendation & stay. Since Cingjing is at 2000M elevation & in a remote mountainous rural town, the transportation is always not as convenient as it is in the city. However, we are just 20M away from the bus stop, and 500M away from the Farm, walking is always the only best choice to these nearby attractions. We do sincerely wish our government can pay attention to rural development, and improve public transportation & infrastructure that may eventually increase Cingjing's tourism competitiveness.

Nice and beautiful villa. Greeted with a frenly staff upon arrival. Although it is kinda isolated location, but walk 10 min will takes u to few eateries n a 7-11 store. And another 10 min the the other direction will bring u to Cingjing farm. A great location to reside in as there is local tour with would go to the villa to pick u up for the Hehuanshan sunrise or half day tour

Stayed one night. Hotel was higher up on the mountain, but walkable distance down to Cingjing farm etc. Great view from room. The staffs were friendly and kind. The breakfast was served like a buffet style, lots of choices. Room came with a bed that has heater. Without it, it is really very cold. The toilet bowl in our room was clogged and the pipes outside was bursting out wasted water. Staffs tried to unclogged toilet but wasn’t successful so they offered to change room for us.
Reviewed January 26, 2018
Hello Janis, Thank you for staying us. Please pardon us for the night's accidental clogging issue. Since most rural toilets (especially a B&B) cannot digest toilet paper, the toilet was clogged by misuses. However, we are here to notify you that we have reconstructed our drain system this summer. Hopefully in the future, the clogging issue will not be an issue anymore.

Nice beautiful European inspired villa”
Family-run villa with European inspired decor. Pretty impressed by the design. Imagine that against the backdrop of the misty weather. The hosts/owners are very friendly and hospitable! Ran into some problems with a clogged toilet but the owners did not flare up or show any signs of anger and frustration and fixed the problem immediately. Stayed in room 204 located directly below the main dining hall (if I remember correctly). Did not had a good night's rest because as a light sleeper, I'm very sensitive to noises and through the night there was a loud banging sound (I suspect the door in the main dining area was not latched properly). What we like: - decor - hospitable 5-star service - home made breakfast What could have been better - no phone provided in the room (that's why I wasn't able to call the reception to check on the banging door) - no wardrobe (not a big issue if you're staying only 1-2 nights as hooks are provided to hang your clothes) - cleanliness

Much more than just a quick one night stay to see the mountain and move on. We stayed at Cotswold Villa for four nights and it exceeded all our expectations. Personable, warm, authentic, eclectic are only some of the words that describe our stay. Incredible mountain and valley views from our private balcony, the warm winter sun reflecting off droplets hanging off rust colored autumn leaves and fresh home baked beetroot bread with breakfast. It's a wonderful place to slow down and recharge, enjoy the serenity of nature and fresh air. It's close to Hehuan allowing for day trips hiking in the mountains. There are many food options close to the villa whether you feel like authentic Taiwanese at a small local restaurant in a nearby veterans village, high tea at the touristy Old England or a cup of Starbucks. The hosts are warm, kind and professional and their command of English helped our cause a lot. I highly recommend Cotswold Villa and if time permits stay for at least 3 nights.

Stayed here for a night and would absolutely return to stay for longer! Room was beautifully rustic, spacious and had a wonderful view in the morning. Heated blanket was perfect for the cool air at night. Location-wise, near to grasslands and we were provided with the bus timings, as well as options to call for transport if needed. Hosts were friendly and helpful and caring, giving us suggestions on where to go for lunch when we arrived on a rainy afternoon, worrying about whether we could carry our luggages, checking if we were dressed adequately for the weather and helping us to make arrangements. Breakfast was simple but delicious, especially the porridge and freshly baked bread. All in all, a perfect place for a getaway, peaceful and gorgeous with great views and great people.
