We had debated whether to stay in the old Strand hotel or Governors, but so glad we chose the latter. It has a lovely garden and pool which was good to chill out after the long flight. Quite frankly there is not a lot to do in Yangon, and the old port area where the Strand is located is run... More

I've enjoyed many wonderful hotels and this one is at the top of the list. Beautiful place, great room in enclave well off main streets. Impeccable, friendly, warm service. Food wonderful (though tough to eat because I got dysentery days before, as do 60% of foreign tourists even if you eat at top places, like we did). Refreshing pool. String... More

On arrival at this hotel every guest is greeted with a loud bong from the gong on reception. We had a deluxe room and it was a pleasure to feel a soft luxurious bed to sink into our slumber. A bottle of sparkling wine awaited us and a bowl of fruit. Even the mini bar which housed soft drinks and... More

Our last day in Mayanmar and no more temples or pagodas to see. What a haven in which to spend it. This is a modest sized hotel and part of the Orient Express Group. The gardens are lovely and house the peaceful swimming pool with its comfortable sun beds. The hotel itself is Colonial/Swiss Chalet in style with lazy ceiling... More

This place is a little oasis in a 'developing' city. When our bus pulled off the main road in to this property, I knew the day was looking up. Less of the polish of a Ritz and more character with British colonial flare, this is THE place to stay. The pool is a wonderful place to escape the heat. The... More

A sensational hotel which is both hugely professional and friendly and understated. The location is superb and the facilities wonderful. Our room was elegant and well appointed with a view over the pool. The pool is beautiful amongst the trees and vegetation and postcard pretty at night.
