On the last leg of my Bhutan I was really looking forward to eating some Malaysian food in the hotel. What a disappointment! The food was terrible and if the guests want to taste Malaysian food it must be ordered in advance as an additional charge.
My first night at the dining room felt as if I was in a school canteen. It was packed with school children and they were really noisy. Dinner that night was buffet style but the cooks prepared two dishes of meatballs!! One was fried and the other was steamed and this was the main dish. The kitchen team and the cook lack imagination and provided what was available in the refrigerator. I could not swallow the food that night and the following 3 days as the food was inedible. It was a good time to lose some weight.
Although the hotel looks new, the heaters are noisy and the electricity keeps tripping because of overload. The bathroom looks clean and new but one cannot close the windows as there is a awful smell thereafter. So we need to keep the windows open even though it is freezing temperature outside.
The staff are really nice and helpful and did what they could in the circumstances to keep the guest happy.
The plus point for this hotel is that there is free wifi and TV to entertain the guests on cold winter nights.
