Fun Fact: 1) All area including room very gloomy 2) Outdated furniture 3) Only 2 options for breakfast (Muslim please note they serve pork) 4) You can hear sounds and people footsteps from room above. It can be very disturbing to hear it past midnight 5) Interesting BAR man. Do have a drink and chat with him 6) Packed sandwich... More

We stayed here over the long independence day weekend. Coming from KL, it was such a treat to be up in the mountains enjoying the cool air, and the setting on arrival is really stunning. It looks like something out of the UK TV show Heartbeat for anyone that remembers that series. Try to arrive early though as the car... More

Whilst the location is ok, breakfast is ok, room needs a refurb desperately. It's old and very damp. We had to wash all, and I mean all, of our clothes again in our next location (and that was the flipping rainforest!). Don't be fooled that this is one of the premier hotels in the Cameron Highlands. It's way past its... More

The Tudor styled from 1937 is captivating. The story and history of this place is definitely amusing. Thank you to all friendly staff that love what they do and the hospitality is heart-warming. This place is maintained very well for a great experience of the British home. Love it and would definitely return.

We had a nice afternoon tea in the beautiful garden of this hotel. We orderded a plate with a home made sandwich, a fruitcake and a delicious scone with jam and clotted cream. It was a bit expensive, but nice (93 RM for two persons including two cups of tea per person). The staff was very friendly!

As others have noted we found it all a bit tired and the cleanliness was really not up to scratch. We had a suite in the main building and everything is there but just not enough attention to cleaning. The pillows even smell. There is also a pervasive smell of drains around the front door that wafted up to our... More

Stayed 3 nights in a suite in the main building. A large room with attached bathroom of a good size. The furniture requires the covers cleaning. The bathroom facilities were adequate but the whole room needs some modernisation as the water pressure is low and the bath and toilet could do with an update. There is a need for closer... More

I have visited the Smokehouse many times in the past and have shamefully never written a review until now to thank the hotel for many pleasant memories. I first came here as a child with my family back in the late 80s, and have since stayed at the Smokehouse with friends and also as part of a couple (this most... More

Decided to call in for tea one afternoon. The place was grubby and shabby. The tea was miserably small, not enough for even my wife's modest appetite. Cost was MR45 and we could have paid the same and got a much better tea at the Cameron Highlands Resort just up the road in a better environment.

We had a wonderful stay at the Old Smoke House. They sorted out our complicated bedding requirements and put our family together and to accomplish this gave our sons a suite. The staff were nothing less than gracious, accommodating and friendly. They made us feel comfortable from the moment we had tea in their lovely lobby and drinks in the... More
