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.
