Arrived late on 22 Aug 2012 and was greeted hospitably by Mr. Mao, the front desk officer. The hotel is actually a small hotel with 8 floors, which 1st floor is for reception, and 8th floor is for breakfast. I booked for a family quad facing the lake which offered a very beautiful view of Sun Moon Lake. This hotel is right in front of Ita Thao (read : Yita Tsao) pier. Since this is a small property, it will be very much advisable to call the hotel if you were to arrive later at night so they would wait. If you are lost, just get to the location of Ita Thao pier, or simply make a call to Hu Yue B&B, as you may not find anybody to ask as Sun Moon Lake is a very sleepy town.
The staffs are very hospitable, and the hotel itself is very clean. The room was not carpeted, which is good for people with allergy (ceramic floor). From the look, the facility seemed to be a new one. Family quad was facilitated with 2 king-size beds, flat screen TV, refrigerator, and of course; air-conditioned. The toilet was quite complete, equipped with shower and rain shower (with liquid soap and shampoo in the shower room), bath tub, hand basin, and clean towels. Amenities were given in full; toothbrushes, combs, shaving kits, hair dryer.
The most beautiful part of this hotel was great view when you book lake view room. You could see the great view at night, sun rise and in the morning. There is balcony right outside the room where you could enjoy cold beer and snack with the view of the lake at night. Safety of the balcony was quite good, so you could have peace of mind if you bring along kids.
We were given free boat ride ticket from the hotel. Riding a boat to cruise the lake was also convenient as pier was just a stone-throw away, making it also great to walk around the pier prior to breakfast. If you would like to have more fun, just bring along a piece of bread to feed the fishes, but stand aside as the fishes were still not used to being nearby to human.
Breakfast were provided and the food were not luxurious, but delicious. Breakfast were provided 7-9.30 am, so please ensure not to miss the hour. Enjoying breakfast at the bench facing the lake would be recommended.
Some points for improvement : all the information are provided in traditional Chinese character, including AC control panel, TV remote and light control panel. Make sure that you would ask the information on how to operate it from the front desk officer if you don't read Chinese. The refrigerator was not plugged-in when we arrive, most probably to conserve energy.
Since I did not come on week-end, I could not comment on the information about being noisy early morning due to crowds going to the pier on weekend.
Basically, I would say that the hotel was a small fine hotel to be and recommended to stay.
