Errantry Lodge & Studio
Ranked #2 of 1,641 Hualien County B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Our family of 7 stayed one night at Errantry; we booked 3 rooms (Greek, Aborigine and Cartoon) and they turn out to be quite spectacular. The rooms were spacious, very clean and well decorated. The beds were large and comfortable. The bathrooms were large and clean as well. The host, Arthur (who stayed at the house next door) was very welcoming and hospitable, making us feel right at home.
We loved the homemade taiwanese breakfast the next morning. It was delicious and we finished every single morsel of food :)
After breakfast, Arthur recommended we cycled around the area and offered us the use of his bicycles (5). That really cap off our memorable trip to Hualien. We will definetely stay here again and I would strongly recommend this minshu to all who are travelling through Hualien.

This is the best B&Bs and Inns that I have ever stayed in Taiwan. It offers great hospitality and you will feel that you are being at home. The owner is great at providing excellent services but also keep a comfortable distance from your stay. Excellent.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms at ground floor.

This is my first time staying at a Minsu and the hospitality my friend and I received is beyond our expectation. We really enjoyed ourselves tremendously in this minsu. Everything is so well thought off by the owners - the decoration of the dining area and the rooms, the breakfast, the selection of music, the photography session and the CD that Arthur sent us after the trip. A perfect place to stay while exploring the beauty of Hualien! I will be back soon!

First of all, Errantry is a lovely name. For those of you who are curious, it means, "the condition of traveling or roving about, especially in search of adventure." :)

My friend and I stayed at Arthur & his wife's B&B for 3 nights in Hualien. Both Arthur and his wife had warm personalities and were also resourceful and flexible with our traveling schedule, which we greatly appreciated.

We stayed in the Greek and Bali room. Both were impeccably clean (I'd say Errantry has been the cleanest place I've stayed at out of all the B&B/hotel rooms/apartments that I've stayed at), artfully decorated, comfortable, and the nice speaker + music in each room was a relaxing & nice final touch. As many have mentioned, the breakfast that Arthur's wife cooks was delicious and plentiful. The breakfast palate also varied everyday (i.e. Asian one day, Western the other, etc), which was a delightful change from most other B&B & hotels' breakfasts.

Aside from the great rooms and environment Errantry provided, what really impressed me was Arthur's dedication to helping us have the best experience in Hualien. As soon as we got to Errantry, Arthur took the hint that we liked to bike (from our inquires) and walked us through a hand-drawn map of potential biking routes. Errantry also provides free bikes, which was a nice plus. Just let Arthur know your interests/hobbies and he will definitely have suggestions, as he knows much about Hualien. Arthur also shared local pastries with us as well as brewed tea for us whenever we came back from our adventures. Arthur's personal touch to our Hualien experience made it even more special, and we really appreciate it!

So yes, Errantry is definitely worth the hype. We hope to come back soon!

Location is slightly away from Hualien city but quiet at the same time as it is away from the busy roads.
First impression - The déco is nice and lighting ambiance is comfortable. Everything looks very clean from the guest dining area to rooms to bathroom.
Breakfast - different food variety during the two days which i have started there and it could be customised a bit if you have requested for variations. The food tasted superb to me. Nicely decorated dishes with tasty ingredients. Could easily be mistaken as meals from a nice restaurant.
Bedrooms - booked two rooms (cartoon and Bali) both at level three. Suited my family as it offers good privacy for my family as no one else is stating above us. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, dry and replenished when needed. It even cones with a music player if you need it through your sleep!
Service - owner are superbly polite. They even provide photography service if you stay for 2 nights and above!
Highly recommended if you have your own transport around Hualien.

Erranty lives up to its reputation definitely. Such a good experience was made good by its Rooms as well as the owner's great service.

Prior to the trip to Hualien, they were already impressing us with their helpful emails pertaining to our queries and also making an effort to help us on our concerns such as travelling to the lodge and getting around hualien.

They did play a big part in making our hualien trip really enjoyable. The driver guide they engaged with us were of top notch standard, making us feel at ease and also accommodating to our every needs and demands. The drivers did mention to us that the owners of erranty made a very conscious effort in handpicking the driver guides which explains and shows the level of service and thoughtfulness. We managed to even buy our own fireworks and had a show all for ourselves. All these courtesy of the driver's knowledge and "can do" spirit.

Rooms were fantastic. We were there for 2 nights. One night we stayed in the aboroginal room and the other the japanese room. U could see the amount of effort put into the designs which really impressed us. The aborgine room we really liked alot with its furnitures. It really brought out the essence of taiwan. But rest assured, the japanese room was awesome too.

Arthur the owner was really sweet. Everything was thought off. When we first arrived, he had even bought the local delight of muah chee, which taste really really good. Apparently, its one of the more special muah chees in town as well. Everything in this place was done at the highest standard. In the living room, there were also pre-prepared tea that were ready for us to enjoy. The bed was awesome, really comfortable, so rest assured u could have a good sleep after a long day out.

Breakfast on both days were different, one chinese, another day western. Both were very impressive in terms of presentation as well as taste. Their fruits and vegetable tastes so good and fresh. Accompanied with the nice view the dining area had where you could see the blue clouds and gorgeous mountain, it was really a very good way to wake up to a brand new day. My girl friend didnt drink coffee, arthur went the extra mile to make her fresh fruit juice instead. Such service standard really endeared to us.

If we were to return to hua lien, this would definitely be the place we would put up again. The other guests that stayed there experienced the warmth and attentiveness of arthur and his wife. One even mentioned they're extending their stay. If not for our tight schedule, we would stay put for a longer period as well.

It's A star service from pick up to recommendation of food, places and arrangement of tour guides since day 1. Arthur was very accommodating and attentive to our needs. He even helped us to prepay our taxi fare upon arrival without hesitation upon knowing that we did not carry any small change in TWD. Homemade breakfast every morning was excellent and it's one meal you shouldn't attempt to skip! Lastly , the photos which Arthur took for us are great and managed to capture our sweet moments during our stay at the lodge.
