Very nice place at a reservoir about 20km NW of Ningbo. In 2011 taxi from Ningbo University at Zhenning West Road about 60RMB and 30 min. It is very near to a 4-lane district road (but perfectly calm behind a mountain). Just it is very important to get the correct exit - otherwise you drive quite a bit through the mountains - so keep the hotel phone number at hand for the taxi driver! From hotel no taxi available, only private driver, they will charge you the double price. The hotel is at a steep hill, overlooking the lake - so more or less all rooms seem to have lake view. The hotel has a good restaurant and huge rooms, my one seemed very new in 2011, nice new and high-quality wooden furniture, free internet, huge and perfectly operating bathroom and very good water quality, even balcony with a bath tub on the balcony. Staff very helpful and nice, although I think mainly Chinese guests - they do not speak fluently English - but it is ok to come through and the staff was very nice and helpful (just international credit card did not work - cash required). If you look for a retreat outside the bustling and noisy city, this can be highly recommended! Nearby are Chinese villages, bamboo forest and a "monkey island"(I did not explore it - too cold in March 2011).
Unique Quality: Very calm environment, very large and perfect rooms / bathrooms, very new - good water quality, free Internet, very good food.
Directions: From Ningbo, follow the X606 Jiulong Ave (4-lanes), and take the 2nd temple-style gate into the Jiulong Resort area (NOT the first! - from the second it is only 500m to the hotel)
