We stayed here for 2 nights in a deluxe room with King bed (room 801). It was huge with separate living room and bedroom. Incredible mountain and sea views. The bathroom had a bathtub as well as a rain shower. There was also a high-tech Japanese toilet with automatic lid and flushing function. The bed is firm, which we liked, but the pillows are hard and we found them uncomfortable. The sheets are low thread count and not very soft. The room was very clean and service was good.
The location is excellent. The hotel is just a 5 minute drive from the east gate entrance of Toroko National Park, so it is extremely convenient if you plan to spend the bulk of your time hiking in the park.
The breakfast was just average, consisting of congee, Chinese buns, 2 or 3 stir fried vegetable dishes, toast station, juices/milk/tea/coffee station, fruit, eggs and sausage. Food options in and around Toroko are very limited. As others have mentioned, there is one restaurant on either side of the hotel. The hotel staff told us the one on the right of the hotel (if you are facing it) is better, but it wasn’t open the night we went there. We opted to eat at the hotel instead. The hotel dinner is very simple, consisting of set meals. You can order the set with Taiwanese beef noodles, fried rice with ham and egg, vegetarian fried rice with imitation meat, or a plate of dumplings. The dumplings were the best tasting. Everything else was a bit bland. Dinner ends at 8pm, which is quite early and probably why some reviewers thought the hotel didn’t serve dinner. However, you can pre-order the dinner at the reception desk and let them know what time to expect you. We came back from our hike all sweaty and dirty. We told them our order and said we would come down at 7:30 after showering. When we came down they served us promptly.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would come back. Would be 5 stars if they just make some minor improvements on the pillows, bed sheets and food.
