“Surprising Good”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Hard to find cheaper accomodation in Sun Moon lake. Book the no window rm in Skylight B&B as it look decent from Agoda for the price.

Was glad we booked this B&B. my wife and i Love this B&B alot. The room is cosy, deco is nicely done, cvery clean room and bathroom. Only thing is bedroom is abit small. There is a jacuzzi in the room too. Where my son enjoy playing in it.

Friendly staff, only see one staff thoughout our stay. Haha.

Breakfast is simple but very yummy local breakfast. Breakfast area is top of buildin which give you a view of the SML.

This place is new, clean and extremely comfortable. Our family stayed in a triple room, which is very spacious, with a good size bathroom that comes with a huge soaking tub. The room is well designed and decorated. Lighting and tv are all electronically controlled. They offer western movie and disney channels, so it was good when we had to stay in the room during bad weather. Huge glass windows offer great view of the lake.
Breakfast is either western or taiwanese porridge, and both are very tasty, and well cooked and presented. Staff was friendly and helpful too. location was great, within walking distance to boat rides and cable car station to formosa cultural village. We stayed two nights there, and everyone really enjoyed the stay. One of the best accommodation in taiwan.

Love:-
- the toilets (with Grohe fittings and a spa pool)
- the high-tech control panel that controls the lights, aircon & TV (but only if you are sleeping on the side of the control panel)
- the Western breakfast (choose Western over the Eastern Taiwanese porridge!)
- walking distance to Ita Thao ferry terminal
- the spacious quad-sharing room
- the modern deco of the hotel
- 7eleven, family mart, souvenir & eating stores a few steps away
- powerful wi-fi everywhere in the hotel

Dislike:-
- the double room with window and without window had absolutely NO difference. I felt cheated for having to pay more for the double room with the window
- the double room is awfully cramp. there's hardly any space to open up the luggage/walk around
- it's hard to find this hotel if you've never been there before because it's lobby is so small, it gets buried among the other souvenir/food stores in the same row
- the control panel that is only easily access by the person sleeping on the same side of the panel

I highly recommend this place!!! What a good price compared to all the other pricier and older hotels around Sun Moon Lake.

I don't want to repeat what everybody is raving about this exellent small boutique hotel. It is all true and better! It is a real gem and we were happy that we didn't stayed at Shui She. The hotel is located on a pedestrian street with lots of food options, tea tastings and souvenir shops. But when you step inside the hotel it is quiet. We loved our room on the 6th floor and having breakfast on the 8th floor was very nice. Staff was exellent, especially Emma who helped us to get back an forgotten bag on the train. For a small fee the owner took us in his car to the train station. We would rate this hotel 5*.

Skylight B&B is a very comfortable and clean small hotel with very modern fittings. There is a remote control for the lights, radio and TV and a relaxing sunken bath with stone tiles. Toiletries, a kettle with tea and coffee, indoor slippers and mineral water are provided. There is supposed to be wifi in the room but I could only access it close to the door and not other parts of the room.

The staff are very friendly and make the stay a homely experience. There is a choice of Chinese and Western breakfast. I opted for the Western breakfast which had a good variety, including eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, mushrooms, toast, fruit and orange juice.

The hotel is easily accessible about two minutes' walk from the Ita Thao pier, but this was inconvenient for me as I had to take the ferry back to the Shuishe pier (where the bus station is) to catch a morning bus back to Taichung. If you have time to spare, this is fine and the Ita Thao area is probably a little quieter and less touristy than the Shuishe area. There are lots of food options near the hotel for meals, such as small restaurants, eateries and food and fruit stalls. However, if you are trying to catch the sunrise, apparently Shuishe is a better location. This may not be a major consideration as the sunrise at Sun Moon Lake is said to be quite elusive - I did try to hike up the Maolan trail in the early hours of the morning but the mist obscured the red hues of the sun and I only glimpsed a very diffused and faint pinkish-orange patch. The misty views were worth the 30 minute walk uphill though.

All in all, the hotel was very good value for the price and worth staying in if you are looking to stay in the Ita Thao area.

After a couple of days in Tapei, we did not expect much from this place, so far from the capital. But it was totally amazing! There are 10 rooms in this B&B which to me was more like a 5 star hotel. The designer certainly knew what he/she was doing with this place. Everything was very well thought through. I was impressed with the Grohe taps and Viceroy and Boche sink and great toiletries in the room. The kids loved playing with the control panel for the TV and lights and we spent a good few hours lounging in the room, watching movies on cable. We had a room 3 bed room on the 7th floor which had an excellent view of the lake. And the best bit was the sunken bath which the 3 kids played in like a swimming pool. A fantastic place to stay and we'll definitely go back!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors have a better view of the lake, but it doesn't really matter as break...

When I booked Skylight, I thought it was a traditional homestay (minsu). However, it was more like a boutique hotel. Decor is modern and facilities are comparable to a 5* hotel. Located at the Ita Thao part and on a busy food street, there is lots to do and see. After that, the hotel provides a quiet retreat. Would reccomend it to anyone planning to stay over at SML.
