    5 star hotel comparable homestay”

    They say you can’t find anything that is valued for money these days.. DORIS home is the exception. They have 4 cats roaming around the house, BUT, you would not expect the entire place to be so clean. Room design is really well done, modern and you won’t feel it’s like a hotel room; you’ll feel right at home. Toilet is well furnished, and is really 5 star hotel-class comparable. They provide breakfast, and you would not want to miss it. It’s a day-by-day menu, so I was served omu-style egg with potato salad and sauteed vege sides and with a choice of coffee, tea or soy milk. The last but the best part is, the hospitality of DORIS home. As a traveller, I usually feel the need to research or navigate my way, but when I arrived, I was well-received by Ah-Long, and he fill me in on the homestay and the island information together with his recommendation on the activities to do there. Pretty good huh, only DORIS home provide it so far, and far better than staying at ANY hotel.

    Even fussy parents loved it”

    the place and the hospitality just makes you wonder why have I not been here sooner. just hope that the toilet roll holder will be replaced the next time we are back.... it was a struggle to keep the toilet roll from dropping out. also, might want to do something about the wooden overhanging box up just outside elevator on ground floor. as that passage is very narrow, the box up is quite hazardous for an average height person coming out of the elevator. other than that, love love love the place!

    Greg was super friendly and helpful, so as all staff. We were upgraded from a standard room to a bigger room with a great view. The room was clean, modern and bright. Breakfast was light yet delicious. It was served right after getting down the stairs, so it was fresh and warm. Great breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay here.

    Great host and lovely cats”

    Well we loved cats hence we made this choice to stay in Doris Home. A totally unique and home feeling. Host was very friendly and hospitable. Host upgraded us to a bigger room at no charge. Our stay: Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was fully equipped. Breakfast cooked by the auntie was yummy and healthy. There was also hot fresh soya served together. Self service to the drinks and filter hot water at their pantry. Location wise, it is walk-able distance about 10mins to the food, shopping, starbucks and port. Cat were free to roam around the hotel and our room. One slpt in our room during the afternoon. Overall we love Sun Moon Lake and planning to be back for Cherry Blossom season. Of course, my son kept pestering me to be back to Doris Home.

    Best hostel ever!”

    A great place to stay in sun lake moon. The whole building is brand new with wonderful interior design. Only about 8mins walk from pier and business district and you can get everything you need. Hosts are nice and helpful and dont miss the great breakfast. 10/10 for cat lovers as the cats here are so cute! You may find them wandering the corridor, sleeping in the lobby and they may even try to sneak in to the room (which is great). The only flaw will be the rather short bed, it may be a struggle for tall guys. We only stayes for one night and thats far from enough. Definitely will come back again.

    General speaking, everything is good. However, I'm not sure what happen to the AC. It has musty smell. So we decided not to turn on the AC. It's not so hot that day. So it doesn't bother us that much. I would like to recommend for those who don't care about smell.

    The most enjoyable BnB we’ve ever stayed in!”

    Doris Home is definitely the most professionally run BnB we have stayed. The facilities, appliances and interior design are all top-notch. There were so many things, big or small, that tell the tastefulness of the owner and the thoughtfulness of the staff. Amongst all the things that made us decide to extend our stay by one more night, my 18 months old daughter was so happy befriending the cats and was totally thrilled to discover all the (cat-related) details the owner has carefully crafted for the comfort of the cats and the amusement of the guests. W e will definitely return!

    Lovely Place with great location and friendly host!”

    This could be one of the best places i've stayed for my Taiwan trip. Location was not too far from bus stop, maybe 6 mins walk. Overall - Doris Home is quaint and quiet. The host was friendly and gave us a few quick tips of where to eat and walk for sight seeing. There's a total of 05 cute cats always hanging around the lobby area. Breakfast was prepared freshly in the morning, and it's almost like having breakfast at the comfort of your home! Room was very clean and spacious! Regret didn't stay for another day! They were also very kind to allow us to check out a little later (maybe 30 mins) as we set off late in the morning for the cycling track. Visit Sun Moon lake and see their sunset, it's beautiful!
