The Giggling Tree
Ranked #2 of 443 Yangshuo County B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2017

My children & I enjoyed our 3 nights at The Giggling Tree. A beautiful quaint renovated farmhouse with great atmosphere and the kids loved the pool.
Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed making use of the bikes and the photo guidebooks were very helpful when cycling around the area - a great idea for guests.
Room was comfy and spacious but a little noisy. Food was good, but I was a bit surprised that we needed to pay extra for butter when ordering toast. There was also a charge for pool towels, which I only found out when checking my bill. All in all I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are noisier as right next to the courtyard where guests eat meals.

Our guide brought us at the Giggling Tree for lunch. We appreciated the lunch and the place. We had burgers which were tasty and the price was okay. The place is well managed by a Dutch and would like to come again to the guesthouse.

Certainly, the Giggling Tree is deserving of five stars! From the moment we first contacted the Giggling Tree, staff responded quickly and efficiently to any of our queries. The property itself is beautiful: renovated farmhouses surrounding a lovely courtyard - perfect for meals or a drink.

The staff have also put together sets of picture books which will guide you through the countryside on bikes you can rent on site. Not only were the tours delightful, but the bikes were well-maintained and perfectly suited for the surrounding terrain.

Be aware that this is a family-friendly property: in fact, kids run the roost. Nonetheless, there are a few nooks and crannies where you can escape the noise and enjoy the stunning scenery with a beer.

As far as activities in the area, we really enjoyed biking around and bamboo rafting. However, the water show was a bit of a disappointment: it was sloppy and certainly not up to the design of its creator.

Also, be aware that airport pickups entail an inevitable waiting fee, which appears to be charged from the moment your plane lands, for it will take at least 30 minutes to exit the airport after an international arrival.

The room was clean and pleasant, however some damp was evident in our clothes when we packed to leave. We had three nights, food was good with a lovely courtyard dinning area (luckily it stayed dry), very helpful hosts.
