My wife and I spent two nights here last weekend - the hotel itself is lovely, rooms are in a reasonable state of repair and the house sits overlooking a brown lake. The staff try their best to accomodate all requests and are generally very pleasant.
The food however is a bit of a let down and seriously over priced for what is very average food. Breakfast was adequate. RM27 for two scones and a pot of tea is extraordinary extortion! Imagine our faces when we saw a chicken claypot dish on "special" at RM60 !! The second night we had dinner in the restuarant and my wife ordered fish which came with a stray hair in it --- sitting on top of the fish itself obviously not checked before it left the kitchen - in fairness they did replace it with another dish and this did not appear on our bill so credit to them for that. The dining room is however very small and the forst night our dinner was totally ruined by a family with one particulalrly noisy toddler - luck of the draw on that night.
We visited the Boh tea plantation and an Orang Asli village as well as the mossy forest --- not a bad day out with an excellent guide called Spence (i think) from TJ Travel in Tanah Rata.
Having also stayed at The Cameron Highlands resort i would say that offers a better experience at a lower price --- so better value for money. I have rated this place as average based on the food and the fact that in my opinion it is about 20% more expensive than it should be.
