Skylight Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #16 of 684 Nantou County B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Pleasantly surprised by the high level of cleanliness, quality of the bedding, fixture and hospitality of the host. For a modest set up and price paid, it is value for money. In-house breakfast is a relief considering there are no street stalls open before 9am on this side of the lake. As with dinner options, which are limited and practically non-existent after 6pm. Skylight is close enough to the jetty but enough of a distance away to enjoy the quiet of the lake.

Stayed: March 2014

My family and I stayed there for 1 night on 23 Dec 2013. We booked 2 rooms 701 & 702. Read Tripadvisor reviews on several Sun Moon Lake hotels/B & Bs before deciding on Skylight. The rooms did not disappoint they were clean, tastefully furnished, reasonably big. What is great is the sunken bath which we all enjoyed especially my son.Lake view partially blocked.
We arrived early after our flight from Singapore & taking the HSR to Taichung. The staff were friendly to let us deposit our luggages at the hotel first before we went for a lake cruise. They were very nice to bring our luggages to our rooms when we checked in.
It is kind of quiet at night at Ita Thao nothing much to do.
Breakfast both Western and Asian is good and filling.
Do get your lake cruise tickets and Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village tickets from the B&B as it is cheaper. 50NTD for lake cruise & 580NTD for theme park/cable car tickets.

I spent 2 nights here and it was the best place ever during our stay in Taiwan. Lovely friendly owners, beautiful clean room with great views and excellent location if you are looking to stay in the more quiet part of sun moon lake, ita thao.

I recommend this to anyone looking to spend some days in sun moon lake.

My family stayed at Skylight B&B in Ita Thao area overnight, with plans to move on to Cingjing the next day. The hotel is right in the middle of a street where eateries, 7 eleven, Starbucks are located; just 5 minutes walk towards sun moon lake is the ferry terminal is located where one can take a tour round the lake. Hotel was great - with friendly staff, clean rooms and a great breakfast. We had a choice of western or Chinese; We chose the western which comes with a sumptuous helping of fruits, followed by toasts, omelette, sausage, bacon and mushroom. The only minus point I have is that there were no windows in my room - I was hoping the room was overseeing the lake where I can get a great view when I originally booked it at Agoda.com. If you are looking for a hotel directly next to the lake where you can get a great view, probably the Crystal Resort which is pricier would be a better choice.

We took the Nantou bus from Taichung and travelled to Sun Moon Lake at a cost of TW$190 each. The journey took us approximately an hour and after dropping off at the bus station we took a ferry across the lake at a cost of TW$100 to Skylight Bed & Breakfast. The B&B is a short walk from the ferry terminal.

We booked a double room and stayed on level 3 of the apartment. There is a lift in the B&B which helped with the transport of luggage. The size of the room is comfortable for two people. The bathroom has a large tub and a rain shower. The tub can easily fit two people and is a nice way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing and traveling.

The location of the establishment is also very close to several amenities such as a 7-11 and a Starbucks. There are also shops selling local food and souvenirs.

The nearest attraction is probably the cable car station but you will need to take the public bus to get there. The wait for the public bus can be very long. Otherwise the ferry ride across the lake is also an attraction on its own.

The owners, a young couple, are friendly. Breakfast is served on the roof level and you will enjoy a nice view of the lake in the morning.

In summary, what we liked:
1) friendly owners
2) nice bathroom facility including a large tub
3) easy to find shops nearby

What we disliked:
1) a little further from most of the attractions

Room Tip: Most rooms are relatively good. The rooms facing the front of the hotel are usually the bigger rooms...

We were so glad to stay in this high-tech with lift hotel. It was run by a young Taiwanese couple and it was very cosy and family-oriented. The breakfast spread of toasted bread with hash brown, sausages, chicken meat and scrambled eggs with a fresh orange juice and later you could also ask for coffee or tea, was made with much love and tasted so yummy and delicious!

This hotel deserved to be recognised for their high standards which could be compared to or even better than a 5-star hotel but it would need to be improved in their front area service and reception.

So if you intend to go to Taiwan and stay at Nantou, do book this hotel and I believe you will really have a good rest.

Room Tip: try to book a higher level so that you could have a better view of the surrounding area.

The Skylight B&B provided everything a guest would require. Situated just south of Sun Moon Lake, the B&B provides an excellent location to start your journey. It's difficult to fault any of the room's facilities with the bathroom facilities a standout. The bathtub was particularly memorable, with the mixing tap creating a thin and wide, waterfall like stream. However, one minor gripe was that the spa function in the bathtub was inoperable. Set menu breakfast is also provided between 7-10am, though guests are required to nominate their expected breakfast time.

This B&B is definitely worth a look.
