From outside, it looks same as any other tea factory in the area and you might be wondering why you choose to stay here, as the outlook is really not something too attractive. But once inside, you get what exactly a five starts hotel will offer. Apart from the usual things, you will feel the old England charm every where. Not exactly some british decoration, but the thing that the British had helped this area to be developed into such a world renowned area for tea manufacturing. You will also see many factory infrastructure that was left now becoming part of the hotel decoration, the steel beam, the vintage elevator, the huge generator on the basement, and a lots of old pictures with information on the past. The room was lovely, big, with ceiling to floor windows decorated with wooden frame.
One of the important things to do here is to try out the dinner on the wheels, a dining experience in a replica of a vintage railway carriage. The railway was now abandoned but in the old days, this narrow railway was the life line for the area to transport both people and the goods in and out. Although it was only a replica, it feels so real that you are really travelling back in time 100 years ago on a railway dinner car. The waiter was doing the most fantastic act to make you feel like you were really on a moving train for the dinning experience. It would be a life memory that you should try out. There is only four tables on the car so early reservation is recommended.
There is also a mini tea factor that is in operation to produce small quantity of tea for hotel guest to buy. You can visit the mini factory anytime to see how the operation work in real life.
