Historic buildings with hospitable staff
Posted Jul 14, 2016
After reading all the reviews on Temple tree, I wasn't sure what to expect. Overall was a good stay.
On arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady at reception who gave us plenty of information about Langkawi. We were served Pineapple Mint tea and played with the friendly cats while waiting to see if we could check in early.
We got to check in 2 hours earlier which was great and was shown all the amenities in the room. The group of 3 of us stayed in Chinese 1. The room was decorated beautifully and had all the neccessities.
Great service by all staff that we interacted with. They were very helpful and accomodating. Helped us to check in early, recommended spas, helped book rental car and taxis, helped us check out later.
The room had a great atmosphere and if youre looking for a different experience where you stay in a historical building then this would suit you. However if you are afraid of bugs, geckos and cats this is not the place for you. We definitely made full use of the insect repellent, bug spray and mosquito net around the main bed. The cracks and gaps in the wooden wall and floor boards dont help with keeping away the bugs. However we didnt mind the cats (except not great for hayfever), and the geckos were harmless (although did freak us out inititially).
We loved the big bath tub and the beds were comfortable. We also enjoyed the pool outside our room. We loved the continental breakfast that was included.
