For this one, a score of 6/5 is needed!
Staying in a training establishment may sound a little bit strange, but this hotel on Pok Fu Lam Road between Central and Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island rates with The Lovat in Fort George Scotland, as one of the best that we have ever stayed in. The rooms are extremely well appointed and the service is top notch; the students take their job seriously, skillfully watched over by Johnson Kwok, Cyril Lam and their colleagues. The location could be a problem, but definitely isn't - Pok Fu Lam road has more buses travelling along it than most London main streets and the transport network is cheap and efficient (Buy an Octopus Card when you arrive at the airport - makes getting around Hong Kong on public transport a breeze!). A taxi ride from the airport is about $350, which compared with the airport express to Hong Kong Station ($160 for a 2 group ticket) and then a taxi $160, makes getting here easy as well. We had supper in on both nights of our stay - only because we had enjoyed it so much: a simple menu of beautifully cooked, beautifully presented and professionally served food - and the ocean view from the restaurant affords a vista across the bay. The hotel has been open for about 18 months and is clearly a winner. There is no better advert for the professionalism of the training provided to the hotel industry in Hong Kong. Would we stay here again? - Absolutely!
