A great friend of mine and I to decided to escape the city and work on a project in a calm and peaceful environment. So happy to have found this place - exactly what we needed. Plenty of room to spread out our papers, in a very comfortable room overlooking the canal in the fishing village of Tai O. Excellent service and a gracious hostess. A wonderful retreat from Hong Kong - really, a world away. Very clean, nicely decorated, and definately on the recommended list!

I really enjoyed staying over on Saturday evening and the cleanliness, quality of service, and attention to detail was wonderful. The rest of Tai O is interesting from a hussle and bussle Chinese version of i.e. "Venice of the East" point of view, but frankly when it comes to finding a nice clean place to have some good food and to lodge, Espace Elastique B&B is an Oasis in Tai O. The small cafe is cute and has some nice pastries, snacks as well, and the owner Veronica and staff put their heart in preparing these little snacks.
Will be back again some day!

I recently took my girlfriend to Hong Kong for her 30th birthday, and wanted to find somewhere that was reasonably priced, through this site I stumbled across this gem of a B&B, my GF and I were not expecting the level of personal, friendly efficent service that we received.
I mean come on people how often do you know of a owner of place who after you checked out, walks you to the bus stop and gives u banana each for the trip to the airport and other goodies. I felt like I was staying at a close family friends place, rather than a business, this lady Veronica goes not just the extra mile, but the extra 5 miles in service, absolutley outstanding. The quality of the premises, was of high standard, fantastic attention to detail, quality beds, and pillows, one of the best sleeps I have had, I am a light sleeper, so get woken up easliy, not here.

If I was to come back to Hong Kong, I would go straight back here to Espace Elastique, without hesitation

Espace Elastique provides the best comfort and cleanest accommodations in Tai O - we absolutely love what Veronica is doing with it and can't wait to see how she transforms the rustic building across the street! The design is modern - no frills from the place or the staff, but we felt a warm welcome from the owner, which totally made the experience.
The sauna is great before bedtime however the water in the "hot" tub is cold - would be nice if that were fixed!
To be honest, I didn't have a great experience dealing with the reservation before hand, with no one following up on my request, but I think it's because they are so short staffed.
Also, best to bring your own drinks and snacks as everything (restaurants, stores) closes around 7:30pm.
All in all, it was a relaxing trip away from the city!

It was a really unhappy experience and we were so disappointed. We checked in last night around 8pm and just stayed for one night. We had our late breakfast this morning around 10:15am served by the owner Veronica and her assistant. Then we went back to our room and started to shower and prepared for checking out. It was around 12:10pm when her assistant knocked on our door and said rudely, “Our normal check out time is 11am and up to now your late charge is HK$200 for checking out late”. We were very surprised and enquired why they never mentioned this late charge before in particular why they didn’t mention upon check in last night, or during breakfast time. As a basic courtesy they should have reminded us around 11am. We then asked the assistant to talk to Veronica first and said we are happy to pay if we knew in advance and we were going to check out soon.

After 3 minutes, she came back again and showed us our check in slip (the one we signed quickly when we were very tired from travelling last night) and indicated the terms and conditions at the bottom of the page where the late charge was stated and said rudely again, “You signed it, you see”.

We were willing to pay the amount as it was only $200HK dollars but we would have better appreciated if someone reminded us and not treated so rudely. Upon checking out, we talked to the owner Veronica and expressed our feelings. We suggested that they should remind us upon check in, during breakfast, or at around 10:45am as not all customers would read the small print on the check in slip where no duplicate copy was provided to the customer. However, we were so surprised and disappointed again that a friendly B&B owner, Veronica replied, “As a well educated person, you should have read all the terms and conditions before you signed the check-in document and we treat all the guests in a same manner without exception”.

In the end we paid the sur-charge and checked out before 1pm. However, it was a very bad B&B experience which we have never experienced before in HK or outside HK. This incident also reminded us of our losses in investing in Lehman minibonds in HK where bankers asked us to sign a bunch of documents quickly without explaining the risks to the investments. Once again, I guess we could only blame ourselves for being ignorant and not reading all the terms and conditions prior to signing another legally binding document, but with Lehman minibond the government for some odd reason asked banks to repay investors for their poor “customer service”.

Room Tip: Must read all terms&condition before you sign

The Management of Espace Elastique B&B would like to thank the contributor of this review. It was unfortunate that a reasonable request caused misunderstanding. In general, upon room availability, we give leeway regarding the check-out time. We will look into constructive measures so as to communicate the fact that we are a small B&B with limited number of rooms and manpower. Meanwhile, we will continue to do our best in upholding our house regulations so that every single guest can enjoy the same privileges.
