Errantry Lodge & Studio is one of the best minsu in Hualien! They serve awesome breakfast and Arthur (the boss) is very approachable, welcoming and friendly. We stayed at the Bali room and it was gorgeous! The toilet was so big! I'll definitely head back to Errantry in the future!

We didn't have a good start with the Lodge. A misunderstanding on the part of the driver caused us to wait for 35 minutes on arrival for their pick-up. We had flown into Taipei from Hong Kong early morning and had taken both buses and train in order to get to Hualien. We were exhausted so the wait didn't help :-(

Nevertheless, the rest of the stay was perfect. I am impressed with Arthur's dedication.

We hired the driver Ms. Ho for two days and she did a great job showing us around.

I have only one suggestion for the Greek Room that we were in - please improve on lighting as it's too dim for reading or computer work.

My family and I now look forward to receiving the photos from the photo shoot with Arthur.

We stayed at Errantry Lodge for 2 nights in Dec'13 with my family-6 of us in total into 2 rooms. We had the Greek & Cartoon room.This place really left a lasting impression on all of us. Much attention to details is paid to the decor of the whole place. The rooms was very clean and pleasent and bed was really comfortable. The owners, Arthur and Theresa and family stays just next door and they are the most hospitable people we've encounteered.

Authur is always there to welcome us back and tries his best to recomend places to go and things to do while we're at Hua Lian. He takes time out to share a cup of tea he brewed with us and chat with us about our day/s. His wife, Theresa cooks the most wonderful breakfasts that is very professionally presented as well. Beats many of the other Min Shu and hotels we stayed at hands down. This place is a keeper and we highly recomend this place. You can communicate with Arther easily if you need directions etc to his place.

Room Tip: No lift so be mindful of which room you choose. Japan room is on the ground floor but it may be noi...

Our family of 7 stayed one night at Errantry; we booked 3 rooms (Greek, Aborigine and Cartoon) and they turn out to be quite spectacular. The rooms were spacious, very clean and well decorated. The beds were large and comfortable. The bathrooms were large and clean as well. The host, Arthur (who stayed at the house next door) was very welcoming and hospitable, making us feel right at home.
We loved the homemade taiwanese breakfast the next morning. It was delicious and we finished every single morsel of food :)
After breakfast, Arthur recommended we cycled around the area and offered us the use of his bicycles (5). That really cap off our memorable trip to Hualien. We will definetely stay here again and I would strongly recommend this minshu to all who are travelling through Hualien.

This is the best B&Bs and Inns that I have ever stayed in Taiwan. It offers great hospitality and you will feel that you are being at home. The owner is great at providing excellent services but also keep a comfortable distance from your stay. Excellent.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms at ground floor.

This is my first time staying at a Minsu and the hospitality my friend and I received is beyond our expectation. We really enjoyed ourselves tremendously in this minsu. Everything is so well thought off by the owners - the decoration of the dining area and the rooms, the breakfast, the selection of music, the photography session and the CD that Arthur sent us after the trip. A perfect place to stay while exploring the beauty of Hualien! I will be back soon!
