If you are looking for a great escape away from the busy traffics, concretes and hectic lifestyle in change for mountain views, temperate weather, with an ambience of British heritage, this is exactly the place you are looking for.
Situated on a hill and a family business, the cute British cottage offers a peace and quiet place for relaxing. The staffs are friendly and very helpful. The weather is always cool with fresh breeze.
Upon reaching the main building, the leafy covered walls of buildings really mesmerized us. We chose a non-peak season, checked-in after 2pm, and registration went smoothly. The receptionist took us to view a superior and a deluxe room, we chose the deluxe room as it is bigger and situated at the main building.
The room is clean and comfy. Humid but not in a bad way. No air-cond needed, you might want to prepare yourself a pair of socks for sleeping later at night. For a Malaysian, it is not everyday you get to stay in this kind of surroundings.
Next morning, we had a satisfying American Breakfast. Bala's Place is also famous for its tea and scones, a must try during your stay/visit. The place is suitable for family and friends to stay, though you have to keep a good watch on your kids as there will be staircases especially when you are taking bigger (2-level) family rooms at the upper block which would give you the best view of the mountains.
There are drawing room, gazebos, swings, tea room, beautiful dining rooms for you to enjoy. Highly recommended and definitely will come back next time.
