The Temple House is probably one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Quite gorgeous, central, quiet and beautifully run.

Destination: China
Hotel: The Temple House

The design and operation of this holiday was excellent and took us to places that we had hardly heard of. A great experience and opportunity to sample " Old China" before it becomes overcrowded. We were very happy with the whole procedure.
