Some yoghurt drink they were promoting, had some samples in our room too. I didn't try as I was already drinking 2 packs of Reserve every day, didn't want an overdose of antioxidants (if there's such a thing!)
Our RoomAfter fussing a long time online thinking of which best room to book, I decided to go with the most economical... The normal rooms costs TWD 3800 (about SGD 160) per night, while the VIP room costs TWD 5200 (about SGD 223) per night. After all, we would be spending only 1 night here at LOHERB and would later in the trip be indulging at La Vida.
We were initially squabbling - due to the "stupid decision" I made to get a taxi from Dongshan Train Station. Well, if you look at the map, the distance between LOHERB and Dongshan Train Station vs. Luodong Train Station was almost the same. Besides we had went to Luodong Night Market the previous night and I thought it would be good to visit another train station. It was also my first time to Yilan and he claimed that I didn't do my research well enough. So... Quarrel lor
I was prepared to make him sleep in the B&B carpark.... But when he entered into the room, he was surprised by my arrangement and followed with a hug and "老婆 I love you!!"... Men... -_-"
There are many electric sockets available in the room. So no worries if there aren't enough places to charge your phone and camera, etc. Just remember to bring along your travel adapter.

What to do at LOHERB
Complimentary Afternoon TeaUpon checking in, complimentary afternoon tea is served (from 3pm to 6pm). Had to pulled Hubs out of the bed to ensure he eats, lest he stays in horizontal mediation for the entire LOHERB stay.
The Next MorningPhoto-taking resumed when refreshed after the sleep coma while Auntie Lee prepares our breakfast

Best Time to Stay at LOHERBAuntie Lee shared that the best time of the year to stay at LOHERB is in May. The golden crops oof the padi fields surrounding the B&B would be ready for harvest. In the evenings, you would be able to see fireflies from the cafe.
Another good time is during the countdown to New Year Day where you can indulged in an unobstructed view of fireworks.
How To Get to LOHERBIf you intend to get there by taxi, do not alight at Dongshan Train Station. There's hardly a soul, and we walked and waited for some time before chancing upon one. Instead, you should take a taxi from Luodong Train Station, or within Yilan city area.
Auntie Lee also mentioned that if you need them to pick you up from Luodong Train Station, you can give them a call to arrange (not sure if it's complimentary service)
