“Restaurant--exquisite haute cuisine”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

A rare find in Ipoh no less, service was impeccable, but slightly snooty at times (forgivable) since I ordered ice water while waiting for my host to arrive, instead of sparkling designer water.

The plates were exquisite lay decorated, food was playful and inventive, decor was eclectic contemporary, and the evening magical!

Lovely to know that a restaurant of this caliber exists north of KL.

The place is majestic and the rooms are decorated with a unique touch. It is almost worthwhile to change every night !

The service is simply best in class

Unfortunately the breakfasts and dinners were disappointing. We love fusion food, but here the blends of flavours and textures did not gel. Would have been better to offer some more classic dishes on the menu to balance. This proved an issue as the hotel is located far away from from any food alternative.

Indulgence was a fantastic experience for all, with beautiful luxury rooms, a special shout out to the room with the wonderful fat ladies painted on the wall, Indulgence has a fabulous vibe of tasteful individuality. The food was fantastic and there was a wonderfully helpful staff, it really was a great experience. The food at the restaurant was amazing, really different using lovely fresh flavours for an all round great experience. The staff were helpful and friendly, lovely to be around and spoke fantastic English. The owner/chef was absolutely lovely and friendly, it really was a experience like no other, I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Had a wonderful 2 night stay in this delightful, quirky restaurant with rooms. Excellent service from the well trained and efficient staff. Food was deliciously different with the very talented and lovely owner chef being very hands on. Would be return? Most definitely.

We popped in on our way from KL to Penang. Overall the place met our expectations which means, friendly staff, large and clean rooms, ok breakfast. I would say its a good place for a or night stay.

On the drawback: cost. Paying for a good place is not an issue but the money you drop here would get you 5 star pampering in most other Malaysian towns. And five stars it was not.

We did not have time to eat in the restaurant but my guess is that they had a restaurant and opened a hotel and not the other way around. Design rooms... Well I've seen better.

It's a decent place on the expensive side, that's it.

Stayed in the Italian room for 5 nights. The room was very nice and they provided slippers, bathrobe, etc. Shower was AWESOME, a rain shower. Nice and clean. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Food was good (not my favorite ever, but some dishes like the Sea bass special, were great. The lamb sausage pasta was disappointing). The kitchen made for me a breakfast of whatever I liked (mangos, yogurt, cheese, other fruits) so that was so nice.

The staff was able to call a taxi and a luxury car for me very quickly, whichever i preferred. The hotel is walking distance to the Ipoh Parade with restaurants and stores. A great experience.

First view as we drove up to the hotel was promising as the hotel is a lovely English colonial mansion. Unfortunately the interior and renovations did not do justice to the lovely building. The Beverly suite was confusing to my English husband who could not associate with the faux feel of room.

As for the food, it was a little off the mark. We found the quality of the breakfast sausage more mass market standard. The grilled mushroom was lovely though.

Overall not an experience we would repeat.
