We stayed 4 nights here. Even though hotel is lovely with lots of greenery around, it is not near to Tanah Rata town or Brinchang town. Next to hotel is a souvenir shop and a steam boat restaurant. Even though the hotel has its own restaurant you have not much choices of food or shopping nor is it near to any tourist attractions. You NEED a car to get around. We had overlooked this fact and had to take a taxi to/from the bus terminal. The only way to get around is to call a taxi, standard rate about MYR8. Thankfully the weather is cool and permitted us to walk to Brinchang in 40 mins and to Tanah Rata town in 30 mins. Then we took a taxi to return to the Hotel. Room is big, clean and bathroom is large, but a little dim. Our room rate provided breakfast and it had quite a large spread and quite tasty too. I noticed that the food is always being replenished. Thumbs up for this service. The other con of this hotel is the in-room wifi. Connection is only fair and their system is such that you have to change the user name and password EVERYDAY. What a hassle not only for us but I felt it for the staff too, as they had to prepare and cut out small slips of user IDs and passwords to give out to guests.
Tips: if you don't drive, take a short cut to the Agro strawberry farms through the Desa Anthurium Apartments. Speak nicely to the security guard to allow you to pass through. Walk all the way to the right towards the back and look for a small gate to the adjoining apartments. Cross a drain and follow the path that will lead you to the farms. Be adventurous.
