I stayed at this B&B with my mom in March for 2 nights based on the reviews from tripadvisor. I am glad that i managed to book the B&B as it was really a great stay. The B&B was comfortable, clean and spacious. It has a mini garden in the middle of the house (surrounded by glass panel) and you can look at it while eating at the dining table.
I chose the 'Prague' room and it was spacious with toilet attached. From the balcony, i can see the fields. We enjoyed the greenery surrounding the house. If you have time, you can take a short walk at the area and you can see various plants/vegetables fields (depending on the season). We really enjoyed the short walk around the area as we hardly have chances to see such things in Singapore. While walking, we could see mountains in the background so it made the walk extra beautiful.
The ladies (running the B&B) were really friendly and sincere. When I was making reservation for the room, i enquired if there were many stairs to the room that i would like to book. As I was travelling with my mom who has some knee problem so I have some concerns. The ladies were quick in their email reply and shared that the room should be suitable as it was only on the second floor so there were not too many steps. The ladies recommended places to eat/walk when we were going out for dinner after our day trip from the B&B. I observed that other than running the B&B, these ladies also try to recommend good driver/tour guide to their guests who did not plan their trips. This is great as everyone just wants to have a good experience while travelling and these ladies are doing a great job in making that happens!
My mom and I had some left over food packed from our day trip and wanted to heat it up before we took the train back to Taipei. The ladies were very sweet to heat it up for us and added a few dishes. We all had a great lunch together and the pork that they made were great! By the way, my mom loved the breakfasts served every morning. :)
The location was near the Zi Qiang night market so the cab ride back to B&B was really short. The 'city' area was slightly further compared to Zi Qiang night market but the journey was still short. Just remember to bring the B&B card out as it has the map shown. It will be much easier for the cab drivers to follow. The B&B is not by the main roads so it may be difficult for some cab drivers (flagged from the street), who are unfamiliar, to see the sign and turn in at the correct corner (especially at night time).
Thought the B&B may not be by the main roads, but we get to enjoy the lovely scenery and peace surrounding the B&B and that's the beauty of it!
