The check-in time starts from 15:00, check-out time ends at 11:00. I suggest spending few time in hotel and enjoy the facilities. The Health Club, including gym, outdoor swimming pool, sauna, and member-only Executive Club, locates on the second floor of LakeShore Hotel. Those entertainments are all free during your stay in LakeShore.
- 06:30 AM – 10:00 PM
- 12:00 PM – 13:30 PM is cleaning time every day
There is no need to bring your own towel, the service counter will provide. However, if you are interested in swimming, I strongly recommend you to avoid afternoon in weekends. The swimming pool only contains 3 channels, it will make you feel crowded during the rush hours.
We first came to swimming pool on Saturday afternoon and saw many families were enjoying their lovely family time. As a person who loves tranquil, we decided to come the next day.
Although the facilities of the gym in hotel can not be compared with other large chain gym club, it is more or less enough for fitness fanatics to keep their workout routine. The facilities in this gym focus on aerobic exercise, there are many running machines and elliptical machines. If you accidentally eat too much during the trip, why not take time to exercise. After burning some calories, you will have more capital to enjoy more foods.
Sauna is separate for men and women. There are hot and cold tubs, oven, and steam room. Since photos and videos are prohibited, here I can only share some photos on their web. Please note that it is naked sauna, wearing swimming suit is not allowed.
Room Tour – Deluxe Twin Room
This time we booked a twin room. Generally, the performance is over the standard. The price is also reasonable. We stayed in LakeShore Hotel one night on Saturday just cost NT$4,400. In other words, it’s merely NT$2,200 per person.
Our twin room was very clean, the lighting is good enough. All furnitures are new, there is no any weird smell. The room is about 30 square meters, it’s okay for two friends to stay.
The bathroom is not too big, but enough for taking bath. It contains a shower room and a bathtub. In addition, it is worth noting that the toilet is a washlet.
Other equipments that hotels should have can also be found in LakeShore Hotel Tainan, such as hair dryer, refrigerator, slippers, toiletries, towels, etc.
Dining – Secret Sense
Finally, I’m going to introduce breakfast in LakeShore. The name of the restaurant called “隱糧(Secret Sense)” which means foods that are not well-known by people. I think the reason why they named the restaurant this way is because they want to build a stealth wealth brand image.
- Breakfast: 06:30 – 10:00
- Lunch: 11:30 – 14:00 / Afternoon Tea: 14:30 – 17:00
- Dinner: 17:30 – 21:00 / Supper: 21:30 – 23:00
The biggest difference from other hotel’s breakfasts is that Secret Sense offers beef soup, which is one of the most famous cuisine in Tainan. You should put couple pieces of fresh beef in your bowl, then rinse those fresh beef with boiled soup. Remember to finish the soup as soon as possible, or the beef will become too tough.
Besides beef soup, a huge variety of food can also be found in Secret Sense, including Western, Chinese, Japanese, Hong Kong style, vegetarian, fruits, breads, etc.
In sum, Lakeshore Hotel Tainan is located in a extremely convenient place. The rooms it offers are spacious, facilities are very new, and the breakfast is amazing. Overall it is a good accommodation option in Tainan.
