帶房時介紹很親切又詳細,還有免費洗衣機與烘衣機借用很感謝🙏 唯獨一早無預警的被裝修聲吵醒,打亂了所有安排,除外之外無可挑剔了 一個人的旅行大推,有著放鬆的空間休息,床墊與枕頭比家裡的還舒服,躺下就可秒睡

絕對是會讓人想再選擇的地方 老闆夫婦都非常好客且善於與人交流 主動給予建議和溫暖的關心是此次旅遊最印象深刻的 只可惜行程的安排太滿,沒有充足的時間與他們互動 不過仍感謝他們在地美食的推薦 他們很貼心的準備一份清單給旅人,若有別的需求亦能滿足我們 像是我想吃火鍋,他們就推薦了他們常去吃的店家,而且他們推薦的食物都很好吃 此次住的是單人房 環境簡單乾淨,插座也給很充足 硬要說缺點的話是床頭的插座太高了,若線不夠長會不方便躺著玩手機 整體上真的非常滿意 老闆友善、房間乾淨、地點不錯、價格實惠 是來嘉義遊玩時的住處好選擇!
