“Warm and Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

we stayed in the lodge for one day right before leaving Taiwan. more as a wind-down before going home. we were immediately thrilled upon arrival! the lodge is beautiful!!! we can see the owners have paid so much attention to the finest details. with the relatively big group, we took a two-double-bed room and a one-double-bed room. the rooms are so spacious yet cozy. my boy loves the swing chair in the room! =)

when we arrived, we were served afternoon tea. Ms Yang also gave us a lot of good information about where to go. she also helped us order taxi to the nearby night market and give us recommendations on the signature stalls there!

it was all so pleasant, relaxing and warming stay!

We stayed 2 nights at Rothenburg Lodge (minshu) (RT) from 18-20 Dec 2011. The stay was booked directly with the owner Ms Yang through their website after we did some research online.

We arrived at Luodong train station and was picked up by Mr Hsu. When we arrived at RT, we were amazed by the beautiful structure and garden (there were more than 100 trees according to Mr Hsu!). It was as if we were in Germany! We were served welcome tea and cakes upon arrival. Mr Hsu and his wife (Ms Yang) were very friendly, caring and helpful. They gave RT a very personnal touch and homely feel. My family felt very well taken of during the 3 days/2 nights stay. They recommended several places for us to visit and dine at. Mr Hsu even drove us to several car rental companies when we told them we wanted to hire a car. For foreigners wishing to hire a car for self-drive, it seems it will be almost impossible to hire a car in Luodong due to some licence issues (it is thus advised to hire one in Taipei). However, Mr Hsu managed to locate a car rental company for us in Yilan which was willing to rent us a car. Due to inconvenience of picking up and returning car in Yilan town, we decided to go with hiring a taxi for 8 hours per day instead (at NT$2500).

This is the 1st time we are staying in a minshu in Taiwan and we are glad we stayed at Rothenburg lodge. The lodge was equipped with plenty of reading materials and travel brochures. We had 2 days of hearty and healthy breakfast at the lodge. We were served eggs, soup, choice of soya bean drink/fruit juice, salad, bread, fruitsand yoghurt. The portions were also very generous.

The only complaints we had was the lack of cupboards and places to hang our clothes/towels in the room.

Room Tip: Only 6 rooms are available, 2 on ground floor and 4 on upper floor. Rooms on ground floor opens up t...

Reviewed 5 September 2011

When we were planning for our trip to North East Taiwan and seeking the advice of other tripadvisor forumers, Taiwan DIY recommended a stay @ Rothenburg Lodge in Luodong, Yilan County. We were keen to visit the ports of Suao/Nan Fang-Ao, and since Luodong is only 30 mins by taxi, we decided to stay a night here. Several forumers who have stayed here have written positively in their blogs about their stay.

We arrived @ Luodong train station @ 1141 hrs and was fetched by Mr Xu. Since we were too early to check in, we asked Mr Xu if he could drop us off at the bus station which is a short distance from the train station so that we can take the King bus to Suao/Nanfang Ao for lunch. Due to Typhoon Nanmadol's arrival into Southern Taiwan on 28 Aug, the bus service was cancelled. Mr Xu kindly offered to drive us to Suao @ NT$250 per way but he declined to charge us upon checkout. Journey to Suao was 30 mins.

We had lunch @ 富美 (Fu Mei), No.111, Haibian Rd., Su-ao Township, Yilan County http://www.necoast-nsa.gov.tw/user/Article.aspx?Lang=2&SNo=04001251. We ordered a small BBQ fish, a steamed crab with roe, Seafood & vegetables soup and mambo fish (Suao speciality). Lunch for 2 of us costs NT$1430. After the hearty lunch, we took a short walk to Nantien Temple (Matsu Temple). Turn left from Fu Mei and the Nantien Temple Nanfang Ao is a short 3 mins walk. The third floor of the temple housed the golden statue of the Matsu (The Goddess of the Sea) which weighs 200 kgs and made of 100% gold! From the third floor of the temple, you can get a panoramic view of the port. There are many taxis waiting outside the temple so we have no problem hailing a cab to Rothenburg. Fare is NT$400.

Upon arriving @ Rothenburg, we were mesmerized by the charm and beauty of the lodge which reminds you of the beautiful castles and homes of the wealthy in Europe. Mr Xu and Ms Yang are very warm hosts and we were made to feel very welcomed in their charming home. Their beautifully landscaped garden is a sight to behold. Originally, we were quoted NT$5400 for a room upstairs due to peak period, but Mr Xu offered us Room 102 (on the ground floor) @ NT$3200 when we checked in. At 1600 hrs, we were served tea & coffee with Yilan's famous Ox Tongue biscuits. We called Mr Xu @ [--] to make our room reservation about 2 months in advance, and again about 2 weeks prior to arrival to confirm our reservation.

Mr Xu sent us to the Luodong night market (15 mins ride) without charge, and we took a taxi back to Rothenburg @ NT$175. We were unable to visit the Centre for Traditional Arts due to Typhoon Nanmadol's arrival and the centre was closed. The lodge and the surroundings is a photographer's delight! It is a charming, romantic and delightful place to stay! We will stay here again if we come back to Taiwan.

..from interior furnishing to breakfast and afternoon tea. Proprietor Mr Xu took four years to build this dream house, and we are glad for the opportunity to enjoy it!
