We took the HSR from Zhoying then the bus from Taichung; took us approximately 3 hrs. Upon arrival @ Sun Moon lake bus terminal, a call was placed to the hotel and the shuttle van arrived within 5 mins. The ride to the hotel is about two minutes; we would not recommend walking if you have luggages. The hotel lobby offers nice view of the lake and mountain ranges. Hotel staffs informed us that check in time is 3pm and since it was only 1 pm, we decided to have lunch at the town center. Hotel bellhop offers us the ride to the town in the shuttle van. We decided to walk via the pedestrian bicycle path; which is located at rear of the hotel and took us 10 mins. We had lunch at local stand; cheap and reasonably priced. Most restaurants located in the center of town are over priced. We walked back via the same path (remember to apply mosquito repellant if you decide to utilize in the evening hours. We checked in exactly at 3 and the mountain view room is nicely furnished and spotless. The hotel offers free bicycles for the guests; we enjoyed the ride. Next morning we had breakfast; serving both Chinese and western items. It was okay. After spent a day doing the tourist things, we had dinner at the hotel restaurant. The Asian fusion dishes were okay, $60 USD for two persons. We returned to our room and house keeping did a really great job with the room. I know it is not customary to tip in Taiwan. However, I would suggest you do tip house keeping due to the fact that most them are hard working aboriginal people and every little bit helps. Although we only spent two nights at this hotel, I agreed w other reviewers that two nights is quiet enough for Sun Moon Lake area. We like this hotel based on the fact that the price was quiet reasonable, the staff/house keeping and location/view of the Sun Moon lake.
