I was there during Chinese New Year holiday in 2016. The staffs were so nice to provide me a free ferry day ticket and an umbrella as it was raining when I was leaving. Rooms were newly refurbished and well-equipped. Breakfast is nice and plentiful.

Skylight is very conveniently located right in the heart of Ita Thao. We had a wonderful all around experience. We arrived to find our room had been upgraded, and we had a beautiful view and a nice shower/bath on the 7th floor. The food at breakfast was excellent--the western was my personal favorite, very authentic and far better than most... More

This small B&B is in the centre of Ita Thao on the southern shore of Sun Mooon Lake. We took the HSR train from Taipei to Taichung and then a very comfortable tourist bus to Shueishe town on the northern side of the Lake (about 1hr ride). From there we took the Round the lake Shuttle to Ita Thao (about... More

Hotel is not far from Ita Thao pier. From shuishe pier, you can go there by bus or boat. We got upgraded to bigger room at our stay. Hotel package included breakfast but it start around 7 but you could ask for take away breakfast (need to tell 3day in advance).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Skylight B&B (bed and breakfast) is in a great location at one of the main piers of Sun Moon Lake, Ita Thao, which is an aboriginal village. The B&B is sited in the middle of the shopping street with many food stands and restaurants, only a 3-minute walk from Ita Thao Pier. Due to the neighboring high buildings, the rooms don't offer lake views. Despite this, Skylight B&B is proud of its modern comfortable design. Every guestroom is well equipped- with Wi-Fi, air conditioning, heating facilities, a flat-screen TV, a fridge, an electric kettle and free toiletries. The bathrooms each have an overhead shower and also a huge stone bathtub, which will definitely release your stress and wash your weariness away after a long day. The bed is queen size and it comfortably helps you have a good sleep at night. Guests are offered a fresh and delicious breakfast on the top floor of the B&B. They can relax and enjoy the sun terrace of our outdoor restaurant. Skylight B&B provides easy access to all attractions: a 15-minute walk to Ropeway Station, a 15-minute drive to Shuei-she Bus Station, and is an 80-minute drive from the Taichung High Speed Rail Station. Sun Moon Lake enjoys an abundance of unique and interesting sightseeing spots, such as Ci'en Pagoda, Xuanzang Temple, Shiwatou Trail, Dazhuhu Trail, Peacock Park, Wenwu Temple, Longfeng Temple, and also many lovely trails and bikeways. The Skylight staff know very well about the environment, and they can make your travel and stay the most enjoyable it can be. Furthermore, we speak your language! ... more   less
