Our room was huge and the staff was very friendly. Like most of Taiwan outside of Taipei, almost no one spoke English. This was not such a problem as we enjoyed the spa facilities without needing directions. If you do not like the sulphurous smell of the hot spring then you may not enjoy this, but we got over it. The free breakfast is full of variety, and there is enough "Western" items for non-Asians to eat. We only stayed two nights, and arrived just after the Chinese New Year holiday, so the place was pretty quiet. The Zhiben National Forest Area is very close, and we had some good hiking there.
