good food very friendly staff. beautiful surroundings. you get a scene you are staying in real rual china. the building is an old converted farm house by the looks of it great for photos but very damp on the inside so much so that it affected our skin apart from the damp we enjoyed our stay here.

Hidden Gem”
My husband and I loved our stay at the Secret Garden. It is a cozy and cute place out in the beautiful country of Yangshuo. Our room was very clean. The staff was so friendly and helpful! The ladies at the front desk spoke great English as well. I would recommend the secret garden breakfast at the cafe- it was delicious! They also had bikes you can rent for only 15 yuan a day. We rode all around Yangshuo which was a great way to see the incredible landscape. My only complaint was that the hotel is located a little far away which made it difficult to find a taxi to take us when we first arrived. I would recommend contacting the hotel before you arrive for a driver to pick you up since there are limited taxis and no real public transportation. You could also rent an electric scooter to get around town if you’re not into biking. Overall this was a great get away, and a must see in China. One of my favorite places I’ve visited!

Very nice boutique hotel 8 km from Yangshuo centre”
Great hotel which lies in a small village about 8 km from Yangshuo, so it is recommended to organise transport beforehand (50 Yuan for a taxi from Yangshuo centre). Walking takes you about 2-3 hours along the beautiful Yulong riverside, but you have to pass some stray dogs along the road, so take some stones with you if you plan to pass them at night ;). Hotel itself very beautiful, good breakfast options and front staff was speaking good English. Nevertheless please note that Yangshuo is a very touristic area, so not very representative of China; but the landscape is of course unique and fantastic. Thanks for the great stay

The chef is fantastic. But the surroundings, outside the lovely courtyard buildings, are messy and typical of unfinished development in all of China.

Beautiful village and special hotel”
The hotel is in a very peaceful and beautiful village. It is very different from the commercial west street, it has a natural environment and history. You can ride bike along the river which actually was the most beautiful part of my journey there.

Secret Garden was a great experience for relaxing and getting into the country.”
Amazing staff and people running the hotel. First impressions walking into the hotel is that it is a bit rough but once you are settled in it all feels comfortable. There are no views of the mountains from inside the hotel or very few- sitting at the top of the restaurant you can see out. Food was very good. Awesome that the hotels make all the arrangements for trips. Managed very well!!! One negative is that our room smelt a bit musty.

Perfect stay”
The secret garden was a great find, the hotel is beautiful, food was great and the service amazing. The staff are so friendly and will do anything to make your stay a great one. I would definitely recommend to anyone! I think the only thing that would have made the stay even better would be a pool an to be slightly closer to town and tourist attractions.

Delightfully quiet oasis away from the bustle”
Really helpful staff with excellent English Relaxing hotel with great outdoor spaces and delightful English style rooms Very tasty restaurant food, fresh and likely customised for a European palette
Really enjoyed a short break, relaxing in the garden and letting the hotel staff arrange all of our activities, which were very well priced. Hotel was delightful with very nice public areas. Only thing to be aware of is that this is a mosquito area so take some anti,bug spray to protect yourself (there are devices in the room to dissuade the bugs but they aren't 100% effective)

An architectural delight with artistic surprises”
Located in a very small village; sitting among the "hills" pictured on the 20RMB bill; charming, charming charming!
We had an excellent stay! Very friendly and helpful staff! Would love to visit again when the temperature is a bit more friendly! But nice to be there and enjoy the hills (mountains) in the off season....we almost had the river to ourselves!!

Great food, great staff and great place
Staff were very attentive and food was always terrific. We had the terrific time staying at yanshuo countryside - away from the bustle of city life but at the same time not too far from the central area. Would certainly come back here to stay - best thing of all: there was no TV! Very relaxing time...thank you!

Great Location in rural area, Amazing Staff and Good Food
Fabulous, a very relaxing and quiet location in the beautiful countryside. Perfect for exploring nearby by bicycle, rafting and walking. Full of character, the hotel is in a restored house and quiet village. Food is excellent and the staff, the very best service we have had in all of China. A perfect countryside retreat, could not recommend highly enough.

After reading website description/story and reviews of the place I was so much looking forward to staying in this hotel... I was not disappointed. Lovingly restored old traditional house with all modern conveniences... It is in perfect harmony with the beautiful surroundings - carst mountains, rice fields and lush vegetation. New modern pieces of art harmoniously complete the picture... Food is delicious and staff lovely and extremely helpful... Do come, stay there and you won't be disappointed!

Very relaxing”
beautifully restored buildings in old village, beautiful countryside, staff friendliness
Overall I enjoyed my stay very much. The only negative was the wooden floors upstairs which meant staying downstairs when there were guests upstairs was very unpleasant. I explained that I would be happy to move rooms to avoid this happening a second time but again people were put in the room above mine even though there were always other identical rooms empty. The staff were lovely but unable to understand my desire for a quiet room. I eventually moved upstairs and probably disturbed other guests although I tried hard not to.

Quiet, peaceful.....for us, a wonderful break...”
Quiet location. Historic building and decor. Good food.
Our stay at this hotel was a quiet interlude during our 4 week trip through China. The owners have designed a classy little boutique hotel that took us back to the era of the building's heyday as a farmhouse. Actually, there are several connected buildings that the owners have lovingly restored, and we enjoyed exploring the village and countryside where we got to see real people at work and living their everyday lives.. It was nice to be away from the tourist hordes in Yangshuo, about 20 minutes away by cab. We took the boat trip from Guilin to Yangshuo, then a cab to the hotel. Woke up to singing birds and the occasional distant crow of a rooster, which we loved. The staff was fun and we enjoyed their cute hospitality. Beds comfy with a light to read by........lots of hot water in the shower.......food great. No TV but we didn't mind a bit! The silence of the night was so peaceful...as was the sound of raindrops on the roof overhead. Hope to return someday....
