We instantly felt welcome the moment we were led into the lobby area. Da Xiong and lao wu were really friendly and we were soon chatting away and sipping tea. We were not worried that our children will be bored as they had activities lined up for the young to the old. The vegetables that were served on the dinning... More

Been there twice & recommended some friends there. All loved the place. Very pretty wood based building nestled in the greenery with rolling mountains around. Yet it's near to amenities & nearby farms. Helpful hosts providing great Taiwan hospitality. Specially & delicately prepared meals. We look forward to visit there again.

This is truly the real deal for urbanites who long for a getaway to connect with our Mother Earth once again. Love the simple clean rooms, no TVs - which was great. Love the nourishing dinner spread and unforgettable mantous. Love the informative garden and farmland tours. Miss the warmth and joy in that simple pot of tea, shared with... More

Every aspect of the stay exceeded our expectations. The rooms and environment are as beautiful as we have seen on their website's photos. 大熊 and Bill were the most friendly and helpful hosts we have ever encountered. We were very touched by their warm hospitality and sincerity. We felt so relaxed and yet have so much fun on the night... More

If you want to find a place to relax, taste the local foods, enjoy the tranquility of the country side, Old Five is definitely your best choice. You can feel the hospitality-- from the first step you walked in. They prepare all foods freshly from local organic farms--they let you try the tea and vinegar they prepare in house. It... More

Old five is a great getaway! It locates at the valley of Taiwan's two main mountain systems: Ali mountains and Mt. Jade (aka Yushan). I stayed in Old five for one night with my mom during Chinese new year holidays which was a true retreat from city's daily hustle and bustle. Thought I was born in Taiwan, It brought me... More

Old Five and his team, especially Richard and Tai Bear, are most friendly, sincere and helpful, going out of their way to make guests feel at home. Though the guesthouse is 15 mins away from the Shuli train station by car and private arrangements for Nantou attractions are required, they have outstanding concierge services and if you ask, can send...
