Secret Garden Boutique Hotel
Ranked #8 of 483 Hotels in Yangshuo County
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 October 2016

This beautifully restored nobleman's house makes a very special hotel with lots of character and a wonderfully serene and calm atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and elegant, and very comfortable, with all the modern amenities you would expect. There are lots of lovely 'secret' sitting areas outside, so you can always find somewhere to sit alone if you want to. The staff were incredibly helpful and kind - nothing was too much trouble - and we enjoyed the company of their dogs and cat too! The local area is some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen and we loved cycling in the local lanes, doing Tai Chi at sunrise (arranged by the hotel staff) and swimming in the Yulong river at sunset. A really special holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful and individual

I stayed here for 3 nights with a bunch of my family, and we could not have had a better time. The staff at the hotel are endlessly cheerful and helpful, the rooms are beautiful and spacious, the hotel is peaceful and lovingly maintained, and the food is excellent. The hotel can organise anything you need in the surrounding area, and make it all happen with minimal fuss. I would go back without a moment's hesitation.

There were five of us - me, my wife, two of our grown up sons and my sister in law. We visted the hotel for four days after a very hectic week in Shanghai. It was the perfect wind-down; I don't think I have ever stayed in a more peaceful hotel with more charming staff. It's spotlessly clean, efficient and organised without you noticing.
They even invited my wife into the kitchen to watch the preparation of a dish she especially liked. And the countryside around is as beautiful as it comes - o rrmmend that you hire bikes to explore.
An exceptional al visit.

Excellent location near the Yulong River and close to walks / cycle routes. I'd certainly recommend staying away from Yulong town itself. The hotel is a collection of restored buildings which still retain their authentic charm.

We stayed in the family suite at the back of the property which was a very quiet two level room with a small outdoor courtyard. Food is served throughout the day in their small restaurant and they will help organise visits to local sites as well as rent bikes.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Guilin airport is about an hour's drive and the Longji Rice Terraces about three and a half - both of these transfers were organised by the hotel for us.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the property are probably quieter, but confirm with the hotel if this is a...

We stayed there four nights. All the family. Large family room.
This place is unforgettable!
Location is wonderful, staff is so nice - look for Rebbeca she is the best. Food in fun! We will be back.
They also rent bikes and arrange bamboo trip.
