Wonderful English Garden setting. The Chef is excellent. We chatted to him before dinner and he organised a wood fire to be lit in our room for after dinner. The sky at night is so clear up there but do go prepared for a chilly evening and morning especially if you like to sit out in the evening

We stayed here for a couple of nights in January. The property and the ambience are superb. It harkens back in time and the walls told many stories of the British escaping the heat of Yangon to weekend at the Hill Station.

We stayed here for a night before we started our trek. It's a beautiful setting, in a gorgeous old colonial house converted to a hotel (I think one is original and one is new). Lovely setting and exceptionally friendly staff. I was cold one evening so they came and lit the fire in my room which was lovely and cosy.
