“functional, but overcrowded in the weekends”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We stayed two nights in the hotel and used it as our base to walk the highlands. The hotel infrastructure was ok, and the location of the hotel is good.

There is limited noise insulation in the hotel, and the hotel is completely overcrowded with local visitors during the weekend. We were unable to secure a table for breakfast in the restaurant, and had to use some dusty meeting room that had not been cleaned to eat our breakfast.

There is no WIFI in the rooms - but the network is ok in the outdoor pavilion. I made a few telephone calls over WIFI and that worked fine.

I wasn't too impressed by the staff: they were physically present, but every request seems outrageous and too difficult. We were also only allowed to access our rooms after 4 PM on the day of our check in, later than the announced check in time.

If I go back to Tanah Rata, I will look for another hotel. As a last minute booking, it was ok

Stayed here for one night. We had a double room and were put in building "C" - note very far from reception/breakfast and no lift.

Room was ok - not great, not terrible.

Breakfast was a real let down. Lots of food but pretty much nothing healthy looking/no choices for westerners except undercooked eggs and the worst quality bread I think I've ever seen. Most of the food was geared up to Asian tourists - big dinner style meals (like chicken legs in a kind of gravy sauce).

The hotel really needs to improve the wifi. You can access it occasionally with much perseverance within a 3m squared area to the right of reception

Checked in the hotel as there was no plan from the beginning. Not too bad but the prices are very expensive considering on a Monday night. Chose the hotel as it is located strategically in Tanah Rata the main town. The beds were mushy and not comfortable for the prices that we paid. Th breakfast is so so and we did not expect anything big anyway.... Could have skipped and had our morning meal somewhere else. Staff need more training for sure....

Room Tip: Choose the rooms in the main building....

Absolutely love the duplex on 5th floor. 2 bathrooms with separate shower and bath. The bathrooms are very grand. 2 flat screen TV with DVD players.

Much Better than Strawberry Park Resort with 2 bedroom sharing 1 shower 1 TV.

Will come here stay again.

Stayed for one night last weekend. Location is good,walking distance to tanah rata town. Room is spacious but thats it. No fan due to the cold air, but it means poor ventilation too. Toilet is huge but mouldy and slippery. Low quality toiletries,and they don't provide toothbrush and shaving razor. Breakfast was disappointing. Limited choices and tasteless. Staffs not really friendly. For the priced I paid, I expect a better service from this hotel. But really, its just disappointing.

Hotel in good location where nearby with many shopping and food areas. Hotel breakfast somehow not as expected and chill food. Lunch buffet not many varieties. Somehow management looks like save cost on aircond since we stayed 2 days without aircond during day time. The reason is technical problem and only power on after 7PM. This is really funny part. Anyway we've ask them to get fan instead. The rest are great so far.

Room Tip: Please check A/C condition and it's operation hours.

We stayed 1 night at Deluxe room with Hill-view (bad view), the room is clean and big. However, the sound proof is very bad; we can ever heard next door whispering and walking.
One thing lucky was we finally had a silent night after 12 mid-night when every one slept.
The location was good; as we just took 2 minutes drive we could found variety of food as well as 24 hours food service.
We would suggest do not take hotel buffet breakfast due to the variety was very limited and the food was so so.

Room Tip: Maybe could try the Deluxe with Garden due to it was away from the normal superior & deluxe room...
