We stated at this hotel recently on a trip to visit with my family for couple of nights. The rooms were spacious, and Western in their appointments, but with nice Taiwanese touches such as the slippers (though they were paper and not quite so fluffy), plenty of bottled water for free, and a hot water heater with tea. The bathroom was fairly spacious including a shower and a separate tub, there was a little bit odd with a full-size mirror encompassing the whole wall over the tub meaning that you got of full view of yourself while using the toilet or the shower. The shower was also to spacious enough for me, however I am fairly petite. A person with a BMI around 30 year greater may find it a bit cramped. There is also a safe, although my parents room did not have one, the seating area wall separated from the bed, and a large wall to wall windows overlooking forest and a man-made waterfall bridge.
This service was unexceptionable - the Waiters were very apologetic at breakfast 1 morning when a large tour group was coming through and they did not have any space to accommodate us. It became quite a mix-up however as they seated us but then ended up seeing another group at our table when we went up to get food from the buffet. Again they were apologetic immediately moving the other group and fixing everything properly. The breakfast buffet is included in the price of the room. Choices were large including Taiwanese and Western options, as well as multiple types of fresh fruit. Coffee was strong, with options for espresso, cappuccinos, amd lattes.
Free wifi is available, although my parents' room had some problems with it initially, but then they fixed it immediately.
The location is out of the way from the central areas of the city, but this meant that it was relatively quiet, with nice views of greenery outside your window.
1 small problem I had with the property is that it has expanded to be come 3 separate buildings. However there is no covered walkway for underground passageway between the buildings, and if it had been raining, as often occurs in Taiwan, it would have been problematic to get to the main building for meals and to get to the car garage.
All in all we would definitely stay in this hotel again on our next visit to Hsing Tzu. Also the windows can be opened to fresh air, though not necessarily recommended given the humidity, and some bugs did come in at night.
