Beautiful hotel, but dissapointing stay.
The hotel itself is very charming with a lot of history and character and well worth the visit. We enjoyed a nice breakfast and dinner at a reasonable cost during our stay. Our room and the service however were both a little disappointing. Room run down and in need of attention. i.e. - broken toilet seat, furniture covered with dead ants, cobwebs throughout room etc. No fridge or heating/cooling. Wifi virtually non-existent. Room not serviced for our 3 day stay despite this being part of advertised package. Advertised shuttle bus into town not currently operating. Not enough staff and subsequently they were all run off their feet - potentially covid related. Despite this, staff were pleasant and helpful, just sparse.

Cameron highlands
Our stay in Cameron Highlands was fair. The traffic and road conditions getting there were difficult to say the least. Be sure to go during the week and not on a weekend as traffic will cause delays. Be prepared for windy and narrow roads. Most of the sites seemed gimmicky or required more time driving. Overall, we were disappointed.

The ambience and english old style accommodation really attracted me to this place. The place is full of greeneries, flowers and chirping birds, secluded from the busy touristy place. I can stay all day here just chilling in the garden.
