In Malaysia first impressions of a hotel aren't always a good indication of what the rooms will be like. Regalodge, however, backs up the initial excellent impression with quality rooms and top class service.
Everything about this hotel is an indication of the care an attention to detail that you would hope to find everywhere but usually don't.
While we were lucky enough to be upgraded to an executive room, we did see other lower priced rooms, that would have been just as comfortable;e to stay in and just as enjoyable.
As it was, the executive room was very spacious, attractive and had good facilities that included a fridge, large flat screen TV with some English language channels, excellent air-conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities with good quality tea and coffee and two bottles of water, bath and shower with good hot water and the inclusion of some daily freebies including 2 cans of soft drink, crisps (potato chips), noodles in a cup and a newspaper.
There was plenty of cupboard space for our clothes and a nice big cabinet to put any food items we purchased in Ipoh.
The room was very quiet both day and night but like other hotels we have stayed at in Asia I did find the bed was a bit too hard for my liking. There was a selection of pillows to choose from and even white robes for our use.
The room itself was spotless and was re-supplied and made up every day. We really could not fault either the service or the facilities in this hotel.
Outside there was ample parking space and the hotel is within walking distance of many good restaurants. There are two large shopping centres close by and on the south side of Ipoh a selection of interesting temples located very close to each other. There is plenty to see and do in this area. We would suggest you buy a good map of Ipoh if you are doing a self-drive tour.
We were fortunate enough to get the executive room for a reduced rate but even the normal cost of around $76 AUD a day is terrific value. We have stayed at a number of hotels in Malaysia but the Regalodge stands head and shoulders above all others we have tried.
