We have stayed at the Lone Pine a few times in the past 10 years and were worried when it close to be renovated in 2009. We needn't have been, on our recent stay we found that the worst parts of the hotel (a 70's? room block) has been removed and the new block has been added with a sympathy to what was already there. We stayed in our favourite room type - in one of the older blocks with views over to the lovely, and happy to say unchanged, gardens to the beach. Our room was lovely and big with 2 queen size beds - ideal for families. The bathroom has been very well renovated; we also love the terrace that can be closed off with shutters.
The room cleaning could be improved.
The pool has been extended well although one cautionary note is that the tiles are a little slippery when wet.
The service could be slow by the pool, on the first day we ordered cocktails that took over 1/2 hour to come but on the second day (especially when we mentioned our long wait of the previous day) they arrived very quickly.
The breakfast, included in the price, was very good, although the coffee could take a while to arrive.
Overall another great stay and rest assured we will returning to our little haven on Batu Ferringhi.
