“Very average accommodation”
Reviewed February 2, 2006

We recently stayed at Bala's Holiday Chalets in the Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. We booked the Raffles Suite, which was supposed to be one of the better rooms. As we arrived late, the owner plonked us in a room which was very small and was equivalent to a budget hotel room - the bed linen was damp, there was no running water and the shower, which was in the same room as toilet, did not have a curtin and as such, resulted in the floor being drenched with water. In the morning, after a heated discussion with owner, he moved us to another room which was better, but I remain convinced was not the raffles suite.

All in all, I would not rate this establishment too highly, the rooms are OK, very dusty and the owner is grumpy and appears very tired of being in the hotel industry. I would spend more money and stay at the Lakehouse
