Hotel Casa dela Rossa in Cameron Highlands

Note: This is the second part of my sojourn in Cameron Highlands
1st part: Sojourn in Cameron Highlands
3rd part: Time Tunnel @ Cameron Highlands
4th part: Where To Eat @ Cameron Highlands
------------------------------------


We stayed at Hotel Casa dela Rossa, which means Castle of the Roses, located between Brinchang and Tanah Rata. Our reservation was made through a travel agent, and we got the room for RM162nett per night instead of the published rate of RM320nett per night.


Location-wise, it is a superb location, very quiet and peaceful, away from the towns in Cameron Highlands. And the service is excellent, with a team of friendly and efficient porter, receptionist and bellman. The room is clean, although it has a rather damp, mildew smell.

My only complaint is that the sauna has been closed down, and the hotel has not seen fit to update their list of facilities in their website.


That said, it is still one of the better place to stay, as most of the hotels in Cameron Highlands, including Equatorial and Smokehouse, are rather old and their rooms are shabby and in need of refurbishing.

This corridor is reminiscent of the movie (and book) The Shining by Stephen King
