“Jing’s Residence is sensational in every respect. Imam who is the resident manager is a wonderful fellow who greets you in a personal and intimate manner every time you see him…..he makes you think that you are the only person/people staying there and he is there just for you…..and yes he also possesses a great sense of humour.
Upon check in you are provided with all the information that you need and are served a cool ginger tea with dates…..what a great way to be welcomed.
Nothing is too much for him or his team!
Breakfast was scrumptious with their cappuccino nice and hot. Dinner was 1st class, we chose two dishes with rice and the duck with seasonal fruit (duck is my favourite) was actually bettered by the chicken with preserved ginger. We finished up with their handmade apple turnover which is a house delicacy and was outrageously good!
The afternoon tea ceremony is not to be missed, it’s served upstairs in the lounge area and the little tray of delicacies that are served with your choice of tea were yummy.
Dates, bananas, apricots, a free mini bar with chocolate, soft drinks, beer, orange juice that was replenished everyday and the toiletries provided are a nice touch.
The little gift left the night before was a surprise and then the addition of red Chinese tags on your luggage is a good reminder of your visit to this beautiful restored courtyard property.
We had Imam and three of the team come out and wave us goodbye…..sigh I will miss staying there, it’s a long way from Australia to China for a long weekend!
