Apparently there are 2 Harbor Resort in Sun Moon Lake area, one is the building by the harbour with views of the lake, the other is a tiny narrow block with street view and sounds included.
We were very very unfortunate to get the second one with the street view. Asked to change rooms and they were like sorry we are full. And apparently there are 4-persons room at a higher charge which is essentially 1 king bed and 1 sofa bed, my agent didn't specify but this was another story which I will not fault the hotel.
The second building seems like a hotel built specifically for the sex industry. The decorations and fittings were gawdy and really bad taste. Golden satin bed sheets, dubious looking bathtubs etc. And a ceiling that was half undone that made me think there used to be a mirror on top of the bed for you to view kinky actions. So yes, this hotel reeks of those cheap sex motels.
I've attached the pictures for you to make your own conclusions.
No drinking water by bottles, just this tap with hot and cold water, rather interesting.
Unfortunately street view means plenty of sounds so don't expect a quiet night what with the Chinese tour bus coaches speeding to and fro Sun Moon Lake.
Breakfast is to be taken at the other block which I assume is the main hotel, the one with the lakeview rooms. Breakfast selection was pathetic, just 2 counters, bread, cornflakes, porridge, 2 hot dish items and that was about it.
All in all it was a pretty bad experience, so please if you really do have to book this hotel, avoid this block at ALL COST and book yourself a Lakeview room.
