Stayed at this hotel some time during September 2012 - for one night. Was looking for a good hotel in Taiping and decided to try this rather new hotel. I am quite familiar with Taiping and we usually stayed at the Seri Malaysia.
The hotel itself is good - it is a basic hotel. The reception counter staff, a young lady, was not very friendly (Not even a smile when we were checking in). The room is basic, and being a relatively new hotel, we had no problem with the room, as we expected. As some reviewers have pointed out - parking was a problem during my stay as they were having a wedding reception at the restaurant that night. Had to park my car and an unattended parking nearby.
One of my main criteria for a good hotel is a good swimming pool for the kid. Flemington? - Rooftop pool, with kids' pool, it is kinda nice but in my opinion, the pools need a good clean! But I have to say that it was not too bad and my kid did enjoy a good time in the pool.
Now, breakfast - poor, but again, we didn't expect much from the hotel as we were planning to have a late breakfast outside in Taiping (For us, Taiping is a food heaven by the way!).
Having said that, however, I do expect the place to be clean. There were lots of flies in the cafe, and being a buffet, food was not replenished. Choices were very limited.
Location wise - no complaint. Right near the Lake Garden, and I did have a good time running around the lake in the morning. The place was full of people exercising starting around 630+am and it was a good atmosphere. Nice, cool weather, nice scenery.
Overall, I do think this is a good hotel.
Some minor improvement, especially of the breakfast & more smiles from the staff perhaps are what required for this to be one of the best hotels in Taiping.
All look the same to me! But try to get rooms furthest from the restaurant. can be bit noisy if they...
