My younger sister and I stayed for two nights at Cullinan. On the train to Hualien, we called the hotel and they were able to pick us up from the station (complimentary service), a 5-min drive to the hotel.
The staff are mostly proficient in English. They are also very knowledgeable about local attractions such as the night market and Taroko Gorge tours and are happy to give recommendations and help with booking upon request. Upon check-in, a staff member made an error charging my card, but called once we reached our room to correct it immediately. Facilities are basic but room decorations are tastefully chosen. The elevator is quick, efficient, and never congested.
A few minuses that didn't really soil our experience at Cullinan:
Windows are small; they're not there for a view! Breakfast is understandably basic but could nonetheless be a little tastier. Pillows are on the quite firm side. To really get into details, our blanket covers were totally open at one end and were coming apart a bit at the seams.
We would definitely stay here again!!
