Wonderfully beautiful English Tudor style building and decor to match. Rooms were comfortable, spacious, quiet, cool and had recently been renovated. Bed was super comfortable, nice chairs and furniture, great bathroom, bath and rain shower.

Loved spending a relaxing afternoon in one of the many lounge areas... in front of the TV, fireplace, bar or in the outside area. Good walking in the jungle close by too. Don't be put off by the hotel not being in one of the small towns... all tourist places you need to drive to anyway. Hotel offer good range of tours, same prices as I saw in one of the towns.

Just out the front of the hotel are a group of shops selling fruit, snacks, drinks etc.. and only 5 minute walk down the road is a great place to eat with 2 Chinese restaurants and a Malay/Indian one too. Great food and super cheap.

We ate in the hotel restaurant too... not bad food, expensive for Malaysia, but still cheap compared to what I would pay in Oz or Europe. Mainly western food (with some curries too)... salads, soups, lamb/steak/chicken or BBQ. I wouldn't say is was super fine dining, food was not bad... the setting and service helped add to this though and a great selection of wine. Breakfast was pretty good... real juices, ala carte selection and buffet. Wish they would offer a Malay choice too... I need Roti.

Service was very attentive and I can see they are working really hard at trying to get this right. You just need a little patience (if you don't have this... don't travel in Asia) and they will treat you right. Check in and out was super easy.

Would definitely stay here if you can afford it!

We stayed in the lakehouse for 2 nights in december 2011. The overall style of the hotel is very british. They have a library with a fireplace and offer afternoon tea on the terrace ! Our room was nice and very clean. The bed was excellent and the room was quiet. The service was very friendly and perfect. The hotel not located in a town or village, there are only some small shops selling fruit and flowers in walking distance.

Breakfeast is partially buffet, in addition it is possible to order cocked breakfeast. We had dinner once, the restaurant is quite nice and the food was good but nothing special.

I stayed there for 3 nights on my honeymoon in March 2011.Being a travel consultant myself , had done a lot of study about the property before going .... and the hotel lived up to my expectations .... Although the hotel is located in Ringlet which is 20 mins away from Tanah Rata the city centre in Camerron , but the hospitality and the warmth of the staff can compensate that ....
If you love continental food , Cameroon is the place for it . We had one candle light dinner complimentary in our honeymoon package which was very good . Also they serve complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea with homemade scones ... those were delicious Param the front office manager there gets everything right for you ... and also arrange for full day taxi ...We had lunches at
Smokehouse and few local restaurants and dinners were confined to Lake House as the town shuts down by 8 pm .... But food at Lake house was never disappointing .. We had a Honeymoon suite booked for us which was tastefully decorated with roses and we also got fresh fruit platter everyday as part of our package . The decor, the furniture takes you back to good Old British classics , and you will actually feel like a part of it .... Overall , the hospitality , the tea gardens and strawberry garden made my honeymoon just perfect . I would definitely want to go there again .

I've travelled to Cameron Highlands by car from Singapore. After a nauseating trip up, we finally arrived at the Lakehouse which is as pretty as the pictures itself. Service is immaculate and rooms are extremely clean. The facade is as aethetically pleasing as the interior.

I got the junior suite and it is big enough for a family of 4 with 2 kids (4 and 7 years old). The location of the Lakehouse, however is far away from other places of the highlands so other places are hard to access without a car. However, as I drove, I love the quietness. All food ordered thereat are cooked fresh, so you may gotta wait for a little while.

I also took advantage of ordering a BBQ and I reccomend it greatly. The staff will bring logs from the fireplace (yes, they light up the fireplace nightly) for your BBQ and food turns out better than if they were cooked on charcoal. However the flies were pesky and I quickly moved into the building after cooking all the food.

The entire place was like an exclusive clubhouse. I love sitting by the fireplace enjoying a book with my kids watched cartoon network in the adjacent room. The whole place is just lovely. I will recomend this place to any families going there, with a car.

Surprise- they will wash your car for you in the night.

Had visited Cameron Highlands in April, 2011 along with family. Should say the if one wants serenity and peaceful environment Lake House is the place to be. It's history as told by one of our guide is that it earlier belonged to a Britisher, after whose death was sold at a very low price to an organisation in Singapore. It really has the British feel with wooden flooring, fire place, cozy furniture. The chef is very warm and welcoming and is ready to cook whatever you want on best effort basis. We had few issues with food, since there wasn't much option for people who does not prefer eating meat. The rooms do not have any kind of interruption (i.e. no phone, tv, wifi etc.), there is just a heritage looking phone to call room service. Its fabulous to sit at their common balcony in front of the lake in the morning and evening and enjoy the "BOH" tea (Best of Highlands). I would definitely recommend the place for those who just do not want to be disturbed and have a relaxed stay.

We stayed at the Lakehouse for two nignts at the beginning of November 2011 - the first room we were given was very dirty, mould in the bathroom, taps that were broken etc etc, we asked to be moved, and were, to a much better suit. Hotel was very dirty throughout although staff tried their best and were very helpfull and polite albeit a bit quirky!
Food was very expensive and when paying over £100 for a two course meal and a bottle of wine one does not expect to be looking at a ripped standard lamp - that slightly spoils the ambience of a romantic evening.
Location was good overlooking the lake but little to do there apart from jungle trecking.

Room Tip: Go for the best you can afford

My family (with 2 young children) stayed in mid October for one night. The Lakehouse has loads of 'olde English' charm and was impeccably neat inside and out. It is more a guest house than hotel with the common areas having an air of a set on Faulty Towers - without Basil around, thankfully. Smoking was permitted in the common rooms which was very annoying. The room was very good and spacious; no TV but that was no big deal. Watch out for the right bedside lamp in the main bedroom of Room 4, though, as it gave me an electric shock!! Bathroom facilities were good. WiFi is available on ground level at any time. The location is rather spectacular, apart from the murky brown lake. The town Ringlet is a few minutes away by car. The service standard was, well, a little weird. The staff spoke rather poor English and were rather quirky in their manner. When wanting to dine in the restaurant, for example, they made us sit on a lobby sofa to order our meal from the very limited menu selection until it was prepared and then led us to our table. We ordered our fillet steaks cooked medium and medium/well they both arrived cooked dry beyond being edible! My wife asked that it be returned and another prepared which they were more than happy to do. The next steak then arrived underdone. We didn't bother complaining again. The meals were also very expensive, relatively speaking, and were the most expensive meals we had in all of Malaysia yet one of the worst dining experiences. Breakfast was OK; nothing special and the selection a little limited. Would we stay there again? Probably not. Been there, done that. Our money would go further elsewhere judging by our fortnight experience in Malaysia. The city of Brinchang about 30 minutes further north had many hotel options and we'd try there next time.

Room Tip: Watch the bedside lamps as one in Room 4 gave me an electric shock.
