Arrived at blissfully peaceful and beautiful hotel with lovely garden with 2 white geese and 2 peacocks. Taken to a spacious and comfortable room but with minimal natural light from 2 windows facing blank walls and no view. room 502 Very good restaurants overlooking pool and garden. Very good Asian and Western dishes if not quite the very best we... More

The Governor's Residence is a beautiful looking hotel, with well kept grounds and a lovely pool area which complements the rest of the hotel and lends itself to a very relaxing stay. Rooms are large and well-appointed with good air conditioning, and with the complex being compact, it is never far to walk between amenities. I found the food to... More

The best place to stay in Rangoon. Atmospheric, especially the public areas: pool side eating, bar, upstairs restaurant. Open sided pavilion with whirring fans overhead and rain pounding on palm leaves. The essence of SE Asia. Rooms have bare teak floors, cotton soft furnishings. They are understated and refreshingly dark -just what you need after a day out in searing... More

The house itself is very beautiful but after that there is nothing else. Pool is smallish with small grounds, and pool service not very good. Rooms very dark and very very old fashioned. No balconies and too dark to read in the room. Bathroom also dark and gloomy. Food average with not much choice. I think this hotel will need... More

We stayed 2 nights. Our room was very dark ( with all the lights on !) and noisy - just walking around the room on the wooden floorboards sounded like a herd of elephants and for the price we were paying I expected a bath in the bathroom not just a shower. Breakfast both days was good, but after dinner... More

I have mixed feeling about this hotel. We stayed only a short time so maybe our view was slightly skewed. The place looks exactly as you would expect, luxurious colonial style and the owners have tried to blend the old style with the modern conveniences required by todays travelers. The staff were excellent and very attentive. The room was very... More

Burma is still opening up to tourists - hurry it will soon be spoilt. The Governor's Residence is an oasis of civilised calm, very large, comfortable rooms, excellent restaurants, beautiful gardens and pool area. The service is friendly and attentive, with an occasional "hiccough" due to some inexperience, but never to a lack of goodwill.

The 5 stars were given to this hotel alone. Stayed only 1 night on Christmas Eve 2014. Wished we have stayed longer. Room is spacious, clean and elegant. Very comfortable. Although pool looked beautiful but clearly we have no time to enjoy it. Service top notch. All drinks and titbits in room are complimentary, replenished twice daily. Pleasantly surprised to... More

It was the best hotel in our 3 weeks trip in Burma. We were lucky enough to stay 3 times as it was our base between the different area we visited. The hotel has an old colonial charm, great rooms and an outstanding service. The food is great particularly when we compare it with what we got in most of... More
