We were a group of 4, searching for a vegetarian restaurant so visited this place to try it out for lunch. We found the food great so we came back for more for dinner as well. The menu was different for dinner so we wanted to customize it, the chef (Loganathan) was were kind enough to make us Dosa and Idli late in the night just before the closing hours and not to mention it was delicious, the best Dosa/Idli we had in Malaysia so far!! Even the service was great, Prem (surprisingly who could speak our native language Kannada) and Gowri (sorry if I have misspelled the name) attended us and waited for us until we finished even though we extended way past their closing hours. We were not even their in-house guest and they treated us so good, we looked around their hotel and the place was beautiful as well. I would definitely recommend their hotel and restaurant!!! Ranjan

Nice beautiful cottage. A place surrounded by natural greenery with the garden on feeling 70s. Good food, service and atmosphere in their restaurant. This is definitely a relaxing place for fresh holiday.

Room is spacious and with nice view to the garden. Food is good too especially the scone and Indian cuisine. The boss purposely light up the fireplace chimney when we are there. Not something we get to see everyday. Ambient is marvelous. The garden is very well maintained. Highly recommended.

We had such a lovely stay. From the delicious lunch and dinner to the beautiful architecture. The place is really well maintained, which really impressed me, besides the fact that staff were really friendly and caring. The owners are often seen in the place making the whole experience warmer and more personal. We will definitely go back!

The hotel landscaping was great but room conditions very bad, mattresses need to change . Unbelievable why they still use.. dining menu very limited. We had afternoon tea, the scones very dry, tea cup so much stand, not wash properly.

Our stay here for the past 3 days were beyond words! Its worth the stay despite it being rated 3 stars at agoda website. Ambience and the hospitality of the hotel were superb and loving every corner of it! If you are looking for a sceneric view, a quiet ambience, an antique deco with a touch of british colonial interior, you gotto love this! Plus point,staffs were friendly and listened to our concerns during the stay, and able to help us promptly! Definitely will recommend!

The hotel was lovely. The atmosphere, the decor and just the design of the chalets were beautiful and inviting. The food is abit on the pricey side but you can always go elsewhere and eat because everything is quite nearby. Would most definitely stay here every time I visit Cameron Highlands

This hotel was a real surprise, given steaming Malaysia's reputation for an unbearable climate. It was like a piece of 'olde England' away from home (and from time, it was more like travelling back to the 1950s!). The staff were all charming and very helpful, the rooms large and spacious, like the beds, and the food perfectly acceptable. No complaints (though the bathroom lighting could do with modernising!!).

I just got back from there.the place is very nice but need to improve the facilities. My bath tub hole is broken and the lighting in the room quite damp and dark (especially at night). Please provide some tea bag or coffee/sugar for guest since i saw you provide a water heater and cups. The vanity mirror is also located at the dark side of the room so i cannot use it at night due to damp light. Maybe you could add more stand light near the sofa (to read or hang out at the corner) and make the room more lively. The garden and scenery is nice!! Love it.
