The Dalat Palace Luxury Hotel is, on many levels, lovely. All those original or replica fittings, together with the old Citroen in the forecourt, are lovely touches. The restaurant boasts a high tea (330,000 d) every afternoon which was, however, a disappointment. Tea in tea bags.... Yep, I can manage leaf tea at home), the lovely little selection of crust free sandwiches unfortunately toasted (and brought out about twenty minutes after the tea); and only a few of them. The little cakes were a delight, but the nine or ten of them were too much - more (untoasted) sandwiches would have been better, or perhaps a bit of a choice). then the 'traditional Vietnamese scones'(1 per person) with pre sweetened possibly mock cream, with a single strawberry, was a disappointment. When we asked for more tea (the long delay between tea and cakes was thirsty work) we got our tea pots refilled but with the same Dilmah bags.
Ah well, the ambience was fine, but at the price we did expect something a little more in keeping.
