We stayed 3 nights in this fantastic minsu (Taiwanese B&B) - myself, wife, 3 kids aged between 2-7 and wife's parents. Have to say it was quite excellent. Booking was simple (by telephone from Hong Kong, done by my wife who speaks Mandarin which may help) and met by Teyra and his wife on arrival. They were extremely accommodating and very friendly. He is an ex-teacher and speaks good English if you're not a Chinese speaker. Rooms are absolutely spotless, very modern and spacious, good aircon, TV, and beautifully furnished. Breakfasts were tremendous - big spread of Taiwanese foods - congee, mantou (Chinese bread rolls), eggs as you like, sweet potatoes, fresh fruit, etc, with unlimited OJ and herbal teas. Taken in an outside marquee like area, it was a great start to the day. The B&B has a beautiful garden around it and is a great place just to sit and relax. Location couldn't be better - right at the entrance to Taroko gorge, stunning mountains behind and just up from the Liwu River. Having a car is definitely an advantage, its then a few minutes drive to the nearest village where there's a decent restaurant or 2, 7-11 for essentials, etc. About a 5 minute drive, you're into Taroke Gorge which is simply stunning - start off at the Sacred Spring Shrine, and follow up to Tianshang at least (18km up the road). Scenery is out of this world!
B&B is great value - around 8,000 TWD for 3 nights per room. We moved to a 5 star hotel in Hualien after the B&B, which cost about twice the price, and it was nothing like as good as this B&B!! This was the highlight of our Taiwan trip - easily the best accommodation and a really memorable experience, thanks to Teyra and his wife. Outstanding.
