Reviewed 17 June 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 2 nights with kids. This b&b is on the ita thao side and hence away from the maddening crowd at shui shei side of the lake. The staff at the visitor centre was very friendly and helpful and directed us easily to the b&b.

There are only 12 rooms. The b&b is located opposite a 7-11 and next to a gift shop. Lots of food and gift shops around. No worries about food n shopping. The b&b is an easy 10min to the doorway of the Formosa cultural theme park. They also sell discounted tickets.

The breakfast is great. There's a choice of western or Chinese. I would recommend western. My room was very comfortable and provides an excellent scenic view of the lake. We even caught sunset. There was a sunken bathtub with rainshower. Soaking in the tub, we could enjoy a good view of the lake while in the comfort of our room.

Being on the quieter pier, there is no bicycle rental here. A very good place if U want a place to chill. Try to book room 701. You would enjoy it.

Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is at Itathao, which is the quieter part of SML. There isn't much food or things to do at night around this area, but the good thing is that it is nice and quiet, and it is a 15 minute walk to the ropeway. The receptionist was really friendly, helping us quite a lot with calling up the hotel at our next destination and checking the traffic conditions as we were going to Alishan the next day and due to the heavy rains, we were not sure whether we could head there. The room is well-maintained and clean, with a nice modern look. There is a nice hot tub to soak in with a view of the lake and mood lighting. Note that only the rooms on the 7th floor seem to be able to get a lake view (we got the triple room). The 8th floor is the breakfast area and the breakfast (choice of international or oriental) was superb. They made individual portions for us and it was really yummy. Also, there's a really nice handmade nougat stall nearby which you should try. They sell only nougats (nutty, not too hard and not too sweet) and have interesting flower flavours.

Room Tip: 7th floor has a good view!

Upon checking into this property I was immediately impressed with the friendly smiling face of the receptionist. I can only confirm that most of what you read about this place is true!

- good location.
- well maintained and very clean.
- lovely, friendly staff.
- nice bathroom with good sized tub to soak in.
- good breakfast. I opted for the western style each morning and was well pleased.
- nice view of the lake from our room on the 7th floor.

From the hotel you can explore around the lake or venture up to the cultural centre on the cable car. If you want to indulge head for the Lalu hotel for afternoon tea..... not an English style tea and cucumber sandwiches offering!!!!!........ but an indulgent lunch style buffet with a great choice of food. A bargain at about $25 (aus).

Room Tip: To get a decent view of the lake you need a high floor.

This is a really good "boutique hotel" with great view of the Sun Moon Lake.

Walking to Sun Moon Lake cable car station is only about 15 minutes.

The room is big and comfortable. One of the best part in the room is the big bathtub with Symphony of LED lights.

We also love the western breakfast with Sun Moon Lake view. Yummy!

We all enjoy the stay.

We stay in the 701 Triple Room with Lake View.

We stayed in the double room with no window apparently that was what we booked without knowing. Anyhow it doesnt matter I reckon because on the 2nd floor there wasnt much view to boot. To get to this place one would have to either take a bus ride to Ita Chao and walk into the populated street once you get down. They are literally opposite a 7-11 ... just ask the local around and they are helpful to lead you along =)

This Hotel looks clean and good and akin to a typical hotel so the bed and breakfast is really a little understated for their standards. Like everyone else have rave about the stay I too have most of that. The bath room was big but the room we had was really quite cramp but then again for a couple of nights stay I think it is okay no problem at all as we didnt lug a big luggage anyhow.

Breakfast was simple and I frankly love it. Porridge with carrot cake and eggs...the view of the breakfast room was also amazing! Unfortunately they have a big praying festival going on when we reach where pure vegan diet must be observed for the county for a week. Hence night market and everything else was literally close. Food was frankly sarce ... luckily there were instant noodles at the convenience shops which is peppered along the street of the hotel.I can imagine this will be a fun place when everything is open and functioning like normal.

This area where we are at is also nearby to the cable rides abt 15 mins away by walking and there is a quaint starbucks inbetween the shops... Nice to rest and relax and take things slow.

My big complain however is my room was full of ants which drove me crazy. There were ants in the bathroom and the room. We couldnt keep anything on the table top all it will be swarm with ants in no time. Any food, milk powder for my kid, tissue paper even lip balms have to be keep in the fridge or out of the room or the ants will come. Arrgghh drives me crazy. Advise to all is not to stay at the 2nd floor room because I reckon this is the only one with the ant issue since no one have complain about that.

Overall this place is still however highly recommended.. and if I didnt have the ants issue I would really say this is one of better hotels I stayed.

Room Tip: Avoid the 2nd floor windowless room with the ant problem

Hard to find cheaper accomodation in Sun Moon lake. Book the no window rm in Skylight B&B as it look decent from Agoda for the price.

Was glad we booked this B&B. my wife and i Love this B&B alot. The room is cosy, deco is nicely done, cvery clean room and bathroom. Only thing is bedroom is abit small. There is a jacuzzi in the room too. Where my son enjoy playing in it.

Friendly staff, only see one staff thoughout our stay. Haha.

Breakfast is simple but very yummy local breakfast. Breakfast area is top of buildin which give you a view of the SML.

This place is new, clean and extremely comfortable. Our family stayed in a triple room, which is very spacious, with a good size bathroom that comes with a huge soaking tub. The room is well designed and decorated. Lighting and tv are all electronically controlled. They offer western movie and disney channels, so it was good when we had to stay in the room during bad weather. Huge glass windows offer great view of the lake.
Breakfast is either western or taiwanese porridge, and both are very tasty, and well cooked and presented. Staff was friendly and helpful too. location was great, within walking distance to boat rides and cable car station to formosa cultural village. We stayed two nights there, and everyone really enjoyed the stay. One of the best accommodation in taiwan.
