We were not quite sure what to expect from the Cameron Highlands. We picked this resort from the reviews on this site and were certainly glad we did. We hired a car and drove here from KL via the slightly twisty road. The actual area has not got much going apart from a really cool temperature, a tea plantation or two and a quick trek up a local mountain so the two days we spent were enough. The hotel offered a spacious room with balcony. It had a spa though it did not seem to have a pool, nor really any outdoor area to relax. Wi- fi access in the lounge was good and free. The restaurant had a simple menu but the food was not expensive and was very good. Breakfast was a proper "served to the table" type and most welcome too. The whole atmosphere is slightly colonial and the staff are nothing short of superb.
This wasn't a cheap hotel but I still felt it was value for money. We took the time to look at some of the alternatives and I was glad we chose this one.
One point is that there is a road outside and you can hear traffic in the morning from about 6.00a,m. I have to say it was not a major problem and it certainly did not affect my stay as it was not overtly intrusive but still worth mentioning. As many hotels line this road, the Cameron Highlands Resort is not alone with this minor problem and I definitely wouldn't let it put you off staying.
