Despite limitations caused by the current situation in Myanmar (ie limited Internet accessibility, etc) Governor's Residence offers the best possible for that country. It is beautifully situated in luscious gardens. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff despite language limitations is exceptional, the food cooked by chef Ian simply delicious (I loved the foie gras) and food and beverage manager... More

We stayed here for a week with our infant son during the Water Festival. There wasn't much going on in town but the staff tried valiantly to arrange things for us.

We spent a 4 day weekend in the family suite at the Governor's Residence. We checked out the Stand as well, as we loved Colonial hotels but found it a bit tired (paint peeling off walls etc.) and dark so opted for the Governor's Residence. We definitely made the right choice. It's a lovely property with helpful staff (who even... More

This hotel has it all - a perfect setting (how much better can you get for a small hotel than a true former governor's place), a well built and maintained structure and the best staff you can ask for.

Lives up to the hype. Has a great colonial feel to it- and the grounds/pool are lovely. Rooms are spacious and have all the luxuries you expect from an Orient-Express. Service is impeccable and the bar is charming. Only minor gripe would be that it can feel a bit busy when the larger groups check in. More to do with... More
