We truly loved our stay here. The whole ambiance around and in inside the hotel (or probably more correctly country inn) was English country side – even the climate helped creating this feeling with quite warm days but cool nights. The garden is beautiful and especially in the evenings it smells like being in a European garden. After enjoying the garden we spent our evenings in front of the open fire in the bar, listening to music from the 30’s to 50’s. The whole place has a homely feeling and our suit was like a staying at a grandmother’s home – including being a bit worn down. Don’t expect a traditional 5-star facility though. There is e.g. no air condition, not that you really need one with English single glass windows and 16-18 degrees night temperatures. The bathroom was functional but it took a long time to get hot water. But this is charm and the price we have to pay to stay in England in Malaysia in a 75 year old hotel with plenty of history. The dinner was well cooked but a bit bland – but this is also what English food should be like, so it’s not really a complaint. The front desk staffs were professional but not very friendly and they were not at all interested in helping us explore the region or in any other way enhancing our stay. The restaurant staffs were a lot friendlier and especially the guy managing the bar shared a lot of interesting information – kudus to him! I will definitely go back to Cameron Highlands again, mainly because of the climate, and if the budget allows I will without doubt stay at the Smokehouse again.
