The hotel is very nice and away from the Main Street. The design is very lovely and you feel like going back in time. We had a compete chalet for us on top of the hill. R2 Windsor.

The bed is very squeaky and the room should be renovated. The worst of all, there is no free wifi at lobby and can't connect at bedroom!! However, the garden is very beautiful. You should vesit to take photo and drink some afternoon tea.

I've stayed here many many times starting something like 13 years ago. My last experience was not good, plus I've had it with Cameron Highlands in general due to the heavy traffic and crowds. Anyway, when I checked in no one told me there was a water issue. Whole family couldn't shower. Staff were kind later and provided some FOC...

As always, our stay in this hotel is lovely. Mr Bala (the owner) and Carol (the reception officer) are very hospitalitable. We simply love the serenity of this place. As for lunch, the lunch set which is chicken curry with rice is simple delicious. Always look forward to coming back here again.

Love this place. I feel like I've been transported to another world. The gardens are beautiful and the rooms quaint & lovely. I can't really understand why anyone would want to stay in the hustle bustle of town or the larger hotels when this place is available. Oh and afternoon tea? Deeelishus

We stayed in the hotel for one night on a week day. The place was not busy. We were first given a small room; realizing that the occupancy of the hotel was just my friend and I and just 2 others we asked for another room. The room was much better. So bed time comes .... 1) No hot water...

Planters Cottage/Bala' Chalet is a charming place. The property itself is quite relaxing as it is surrounded with gardens/green foliage. It has an English Cottage feel to it; an old-world charm. The rooms were decent sized but it could get cold at night. We ate out most of the times as we wanted to try out the various food options...
