Had a beautiful afternoon cream tea here, nicely served and presented. The most delicious scones I have ever had and the homemade jam was lovely! So impressed with the quality of the afternoon tea and the beautiful building that we also booked to have a family dinner here. The meal did not disappoint- service was fantastic, menu choices were varied,... More

Ok, so visiting as an actually Londoner I found this restaurant a touch on the weird side. I kind of understand that it's a British themed restaurant but if that's how people think we eat on a regular basis then they are very much mistaken. The staff are really helpful but if I'm honest they are trying to make the... More

It is an old hotel with Victorian touch. It is a huge property - and can see from the furniture at main lobby - it is hard to maintain as the furniture looks worn out. Knowing this - I still went ahead with my second visit. It was a pleasant stay in our Deluxe Room which is nicely furnished. The... More

Easily accessed from Tanah Rata town, the Smokehouse Hotel/Restaurant offers a unique experience to those so used to modern high rise hotels. The award winning garden surrounding the small boutique hotel offers a very pleasant homely welcome. Simply outstanding and beautiful. Never seen anything like that in any modern hotel. The terrace/garden is ideal for a quiet, peaceful afternoon tea.... More

This is a quirky hotel with lots of colonial bits and bobs. We went for lunch which was very nice. The dinner menu also looked good.

Had a relaxing and enjoyable lunch. The environment was superb, Christmas deco turned the smokehouse even more Old English and nostalgic. Front desk staffs are very helpful and second to none.

Had high expectations for afternoon tea at this beautiful house with lovely gardens. We were warmly welcomed by the attentive staff. However, afternoon tea was very disappointing. We ordered two full afternoon teas, paying a supplement to have Earl Grey tea and were served 1 pot of tea for both of us, another pot of tea would have been extra.... More

I enjoyed deliciously flakey scone with fresh cream and strawberry jam and tea. Staff is not very welcoming, but the setting is gorgeous in the well maintained old english house with lush flower garden.

The staff were very accommodating during our visit for dinner. We enjoyed sitting by the real fire at the bar before and after our meal. We appreciated the effort of the barman in lighting the fire for us. Overall, we felt that the food prices were too high for what was presented to us. For example, 25MR for a side... More

If you want a home from home British treat then this is the place. We had the scones and Darjeeling tea. Very much liked the look and feel of the place only wish we had stayed there.
