We spent three nights at TGR over Christmas with my parents who flew in to join us from the UK. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were very friendly and obliging and we loved the garden setting and being able to take our meals on the airy verandah. We also appreciated the Christmas Eve Gala Dinner held in the garden. The charming staff soon fixed up a few misunderstandings with our booking and seating arrangements and then proceeded to spoil us wonderfully when we booked in with them for Christmas Day Brunch.

We had a ground floor room which was a little dark as we had to keep the curtains closed most of the time unless we wanted to be in full view of guests on their way to the pool. However it was very spacious and we preferred the understated colonial elegance to the more brash style of my parents' room.They had one of the two newly renovated rooms so it was very interesting to compare. Their room was very well placed, more private than ours and had a well appointed balcony. Their bathroom was gorgeous- very sleek and modern, but we didn't really care for the large heavy furnishings in the bedroom. My parents on the other hand really liked it so that worked out well.

All in all an excellent start to our holiday and we set out for our Road to Mandalay River Cruise in very fine form!

I am not sure what I was expecting but I felt the hotel was subpar. Our room was dark(not enough lighting),our AC hardly worked, the service was average, and in general the hotel felt tired.The noise from the staff up and down the stairway was off putting.The breakfast was the highlight.The location was good as it is away from the city center and did afford a quiet haven from the loud and dusty city.

Outstanding service and beautifully appointed hotel.A real haven from the rush and bustle of Yangon.Excellent buffet in the evenings and wonderful Danish Pastries at breakfast.
Not cheap but worth the money.

Yes, it is absurdly pricey but it is almost worth it...

If you're staying in Yangon and are looking for a luxury experience you simply cannot best the Governors Residence. Don't even think about staying at The Strand!

Set in a lush, intimate grounds patrolled by the resident peacocks the residence is the perfect place to unwind from the chaos of Yangon.

The characterful main building boasts two very good restaurants and nicely evoked the charm of times gone by. This complemented by the usual O&E levels of service - the staff couldn't be more attentive, friendly and helpful and you have an unbeatable combination - just don't look at the bill!
