“Will never go back!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

We have been taking advantage of my 3 years assignment in Malaysia to see and experience as many sights and culture as we can. So for the 1st day of Raya we decided to check out Bukit Fraser. Unable to get a reservation, we thought of making a day trip. I read on the net that The Smokehouse has a good restaurant. So when we arrived at about 2pm, we went straight to the hotel. I asked one man who seem to be in charge (a caucasian guy) if we could have lunch. He said that it would be at least an hour wait. I said ok and we will just take a walk and come back. Then he said lunch will be over in an hour and it will be tea time. I said that's still fine. I can come back. But he just brushed us aside never took our reservation and worse, my son asked if he can use the rest room and was told that he can use a public toilet (about a mile down the road). How rude! I have stayed in many hotels in Malaysia much better than this small hotel and always had good things to say. But not on this one.

Went there without booking and got a room that was not bad but from the outside looked like it was going to collapse. It's a cosy room nevertheless. Reasonably clean. The price for a room is steep. And if you think the price for the room is steep, try eating there! It's very expensive but the food is tasty though. English food, English-looking cottage house. Outside is very pretty with beautiful coloured flowers and plants. The weather is perfect...50s at nights and 60s n 70s during the day. Desk staff are friendly and accommodating. Ideal getaway for young and elderly couples.

Went there twice just to enjoy the english, romantic and chilly atmosphere, the house is meant to be shabby and creepy, if it is not, it is not smokehouse. The scones in the high tea set is awesome, love to enjoy the english tea set outside at the garden, the Scott Restaurant that located further is under Smokehouse too, they serve delicious quality food with cheaper price compare to dine in Smokehouse, must order the steak at Scott Restaurant, good portion at good price..Overall, surely will go back again if got chance!

I stayed only a night at the smoke house and the expeience wasnt that bad. It is small, old, cozy and nice. The rooms are pretty clean, not that bad and the views are brilliant. It is located at a good point on frasers hill. Pretty secluded. A quiet and nice weekend get away is highly recommended.
It is to be noted that the restaurant has good food and it is prepared fresh, however the wait is long. Sometimes it is pretty difficult to find a waiter. That being said, it does not over power my overall experience.
Hey. I didnt book a five star and i didnt expect a similar treatment. Albeit the staff needs some lessons yet i would not mind visiting this place again.

We went to Mount Fraser in April for 4 days and were fortunate enough to get reservation in Smokehouse.
It was a super experience... old world charm combined with great food and service.
We are vegetarians and the restaurant was very accomodating and we had excellent vegetarian options.
Would love to visit again! :-)

We stayed in a suite for 2 nights and it was a wonderful experience. Its like staying in a small cottage in England. The room was clean and everything functioned .The idea of not having TV in the room is brilliant. If you love reading and appreciate jungle sounds this is the place to stay. The manager, staff and the cleaner were all extremely friendly and helpful . Full marks to them. Always with a smile and ready to help. The restaurant in this property serves premium western dishes . A food court with a delightful array of Malaysian food with Malaysian prices is just a mere 10 minutes walk away.The drawbacks are ,the breakfast is slow to be served and tea is cold when the food finally arrives . Beer should be served in chill bottles and not in cans and should not be highly priced. Wifi reception is poor and Im not sure its the fault of the telcos or the hotel. Otherwise it has been an awesome stay. I love this place.

Room Tip: choose a suit facing the hills and valley

I love this hotel. I have been 3 times and love taking relatives. Yes, it's shabby, no there is no tv in the rooms, but I still feel happy and transported to a different time and place every time I come. High tea is fun from 3- 6pm over a game of Scrabble with family and I look forward to the dinners of an English Roast of Yorkshire Pudding or a homemade Beef Pie with a glass of red wine. Slow down, take a step back in time and enjoy :)

Room Tip: The Laura has always been fun and comfortable for my family.
