One of the Best Service B&B in Taiwan!I visited this place Luye (鹿野高台) about 7yrs ago and it has left a great impression with me and I said I will want to come back and stay here for a few nights. In my latest family trip, I make sur...
Best location for Hot Air Balloon festivalWe stayed here for the sole purpose of attending the hot air balloon festival taking place at gaotai (the grassy field the the hotel overlooks). Between this hotel and the other one that is in the gaotai area, this one has the better view on its second level balcony exclusive to hotel guests. It looks directly over the hot air balloons. The rooms were simple, maybe a bit dated but okay. The bathroom had a mildewy smell though that was hard to get rid of so we just kept the bathroom door closed throughout our one night stay. The breakfast was quite amazing, a pleasant surprise. Fresh fruit from the area and handmade, organic mantou (buns) that are shaped like flowers. I believe breakfasts change according to what is in season. What we had was amazing. We also bought a bottle of their plum wine that they make onsite. It is the best plum wine I had and wish I bought more.
Long drive for good sceneryThis B&B is a long drive up a hill and located next to a large field, away from everything else. So long drive in exchange for serene & peaceful surroundings, it is definitely worth it if you like nature. The room we stayed in had a balcony overlooking the field, so we had a nice view of the neighbouring mountains and greenery. It was nice to breathe in some fresh air! The room appeared to be of age, but it was clean and well-kempt, so no complaints about cleanliness. The feeling of this B&B was more hotel-like; there was an acceptable level of customer service, but not to the extent of the warm & 'homey' type. The breakfast was good though, they served us many small taiwanese-styled dishes with sweet potato porridge! There was also the standard toast, coffee and tea. All in all, it is worth a stay. We are considering coming back to stay at Lutai for the Hot Air Balloon Festival in the future.

Where's the wine then?!?!Expected this to be a place where you could have a meal with of bottle of wine, but that was not to be. We were given samples of whisky which was ok, but not repeatable, mulberry something or other which was Undrinkable and some other similar white stuff but stuck to the tea stuff. Disappointing. Meal was average but after a day driving anything was acceptable. Breakfast ok, but local. Location good with good view. Bed ok, room nice, bathroom ok, shower good. But it's expected that wine is served at a winery........!!!
