Ria Cameron Hotel and Apartment
Brinchang Point, Cameron Highlands
Ria Cameron Hotel and Apartment is a shop lot budget accommodation located in Brinchang Point. They have hotel room type accommodation as well as apartment style accommodation. The apartment is also located in the same block as the shop lot hotel.
The manager was kind enough to allow me to have a peek inside. Looking around the rooms, they have rooms that can accommodate 2 persons and 3 persons. The furnishing is a little Spartan, with just the basic bed, box TV, dressing table and of course clean bathroom with heated showers.
Ria Cameron Apartment which is located next door on the corner of the shop. It has a couple of rooms and a very spacious living hall furnished with simple sofa and dining table. They also have a mahjong table for those who love this game playing till the wee hours of the cool night of Cameron Highlands!
The rooms view opens up to the surrounding of Brinchang Point and I could see Tudor Home Inn Hotel with its bright red and yellow colours. Back to the apartment, I could see a pantry kitchen with a refrigerator provided. Didn't see any cooking stove though. I guess the manager didn't want any heavy cooking to be done as it can cause quite a mess! Simple steamboat is still possible but you will have to bring your own cooking steamboat pot. Of course cooking the steamboat yourself you can get more quantity for less, but if you don't want to contend with cooking, Brinchang town has plenty of food outlets including steamboat restaurants to choose from!
The corner shop using as an apartment is really spacious, so if there is bigger group, you will need to check with the manager whether extra beds can be provided or not.
Oh, the apartment has quite a nice view of the surrounding Brinchang Point and I could see towards the hills where Sri Juliana Chalet hotel is located. That road if you go on will take you to Cluny Lodge and Strawberry Park Hotel.
After viewing the Ria Cameron Hotel room and Apartment accommodation, I have a chat with the manager, Mr Chia. So happened this weekend season was rather slow so he has quite some time to spare. We sat at the front of the hotel where he has placed some marble chairs and table. Very good for sitting around to while away your time catching up with gossip, though the marble surface would make for quite a cold seat!
He usually caters for walk in customers and not so much for the bus tours although he could house the entire bus tourist entourage like the Hotel Flora De Cottage if he wanted to, but the road construct here was not designed for buses. The sudden change in gradient and sharp corners makes it impossible for the buses to enter and thus the customers will have to carry their luggage over.
Anyway his accommodation is simple and thus economical and of course a little cheaper than the Cameron High Inn Hotel located opposite. But if you want to save that little extra, you could give this place a try.
He also talked about the traffic situation here in Brinchang and of course the night market will be shifted over to Tanah Rata because the trader's trading license will not be renewed for this location.
So I thanked him for the information and the chance to have a view of his room. Hopefully being featured here you can have some idea of this accommodation located here in Brinchang Point.
