Cameron Highlands Ye Old Smoke House (Hot nights in a cold place)

September 2011 (Continuation) - Backdated post

OK. Back to backdated post on our recent travels. Continuing on our short holiday to Cameron Highlands, the next venue to yak about would be Ye Old Smokehouse located just after Tanah Rata on the way to Brinchang.


This quaint little English cottage style boutique hotel was once listed as the place for the rich and famous. With limited rooms, our first stay there was something like 10 years ago. Over the last decade, we had stayed there three times and we enjoyed the atmosphere very much. The service was top notch back then and the staff literally know you by your name. (Have to right? Only less than 20 rooms in total)

I must say that this is the ideal place for young couples looking for a romantic getaway or honey mooning couples looking for a romantic nest for some `hot' nights in the cold cool weather of Cameron Highlands.....(try to imagine warm bodies under the blanket on huge brass bed in rooms decorated in the old English cottage settings...need I say more....hmmmm)

Come to think of it, it would also be a cool place for `old married couples' to `abandon' their children for a hot spicy weekend (read about rekindling our sex lives in one of the post by bro Eugene from Bold Talk).

Anyway, we found it rather expensive to bring so many to stay there this round and hence we opted for a more economical Equatorial. However, we still wanted to enjoy the atmosphere and hence we went there for a good old English breakfast ...Turned out to be the most expensive meal throughout our trip (but then I knew that it would not come cheap in the first place considering that the junior suite rack rate is already close to RM500 per night).

thank you for the recommendations, considering alot of budget hotels at cameron highlands are very very run down and not clean. may I know how is the price?

Lisa Hz said...

nice family pictures!

yup have to agree with alice. too many budget hotels and kotor =( i'm suggesting cameron highland resort. but it's quite pricey tho

Daddy said...

Price ranges from Rm400+ to RM680+ depending on the number of bedrooms unit. Can check out the link here http://www.thesmokehouse.com.my/ch.htm. It comes with breakfast. Cameron Highlands Resort taken over and refurbished by YTL is definitely pricey but it definitely looks good. Located just opposite the golf course. Stayed there before YTL took over. It was also run down then. Even Equatorial is run down and the price is not cheap either but for a big group, it's much or economical.
