Stayed one night so did not try resort activities and can only comment on room which is 3 stars for being so dark and water pressure could have been higher and temperature hotter. Not clear if slippers are sanitized between guests since they are not packaged. Added another star for nice buffet dinner and breakfast in the Wellesley restaurant.

It should be noted that Taroko Gorge is one of my absolutely favourite places, so to be able to stay at this hotel was a treat! Upon arrival, we were greeted by professional staff and given ginger tea in bamboo cups. Our room was comfortable, very clean, and serene. From our room we were able to see the outside performance...

Very friendly staff and the pick up service from the station worked out very well. The spa facilities and entertainment during the night were fantastic.
