This hotel is extraordinary in its capacity to take you back in time and space. The interior is crammed with tacky antiquities ranging from old cowbells to swords to framed British hunting scenes, and the owner is fond of playing canny mono music recordings.
The entire building is clearly lacking in maintenance work, so do not expect your room to be free of rust and mould. This, depending on your expectations, can either be charming or annoying. In either case, it is fair to say that this is not a luxurious hotel, but it is an expensive one.
It should also be noted that this hotel, like the Lakehouse, is also roadside and that there is construction going on right next doors, so it is not necessarily very quiet.
The service is personal, friendly and of a very high quality - from being offered tea upon arrival to being given a lunch pack when you check out.
The food is pricey for Malaysia, but it's also copious, typically British, and good (though not excellent). The scones during high tea, however, are exceptionally delicious.
Do not stay here if you are used to very high hotel standings, because you will most likely be disappointed. Go for high tea or for a Guinness in the evening next to the fireplace. But do go here if you're looking for a surreal colonial experience and you don't mind an unfinished touch.
