If you would like an authentic experience of the bygone days of life in the colonial hill stations then head for the Lakehouse. The property has been restored and maintained to a high standard and the staff are ever attentive. The restaurant is excellent and fresh local produce are used in abundance. Overall the experience is very special and possibly... More

Items of interest: - location is a bit isolated from towns like tanah rata, but very beautiful and secluded - yes, lake is being dredged, but not a huge problem (it's for a good cause) - rooms are excellent - food is excellent and pricing is reasonable given the price of accom. Not sure why anyone would complain about the... More

Absolutely delightful hotel with everyone trying so hard to please....and succeeding. It is very hard to find any fault with the hotel at all. The food is good, and the staff so well trained and the building itself is a standout in the area. A perfect getaway.

Spent Chinese New Year here with family, in 2 Family Suites. Totally charmed by the place which was very well maintained with lovely grounds and efficient, attentive staff. A pity about the lake which I understand is being dredged. It was a bit of an eyesore but it's actually located across the road from the establishment. Afternoon tea was brilliant,... More

What a lovely surprise as this hotel could have come straight out of a tudor story book. The English bar with the yard of ale glass was a delight as we're all the other English antiquities. It's location and grounds are wonderful and kept pristine by the gardeners. Lovely spacious bedrooms and perfectly clean with great linen. Breakfast and dinner... More

Lakehouse is a lovely hotel (not the typical type) at a lovely location. Beautifully decorated rooms, helpful staff, good but little pricey food. Overall, it is a very good place to spend a weekend. Recommended.

Having toured the Cameron Highlands and seen (from the outside) the other highly rated hotels in the area, I would say the Lakehouse is not only number one, but it's in a class of its own! In Jim Thompson's day, many years ago, the Cameron Highlands must have been truly beautiful. We were much looking forward to our first visit... More

Absolutely lovely property worth a visit if you like classic homes. Food is pricey, you can get better value elsewhere with an equally nice view. There was construction / dredging going on nearby which was noisy and smokey. Consider that if you are sensitive to noise.
