I've been to Bala's chalet a couple of times actually.
At least once a year. I don't know why I kept returning there. Maybe because of their scones......
But after reading all the other reviews, I finally thought that I'm not getting my money worth.
The rooms are terribly expensive, considering no heating, very dimly lit rooms and very musty.
Although recently I noticed that they've upgraded alot of their rooms, but still quite expensive.
But they do have quite a nice garden, reading and tea rooms.
But the reading and tea rooms closed too soon.
Can't they keep these rooms opened until about midnite????
The food is too expensive for us locals. Maybe not for foreigners, but rm18.00 for a plain fried mee or rice????
The manager and his wife do appear quite snobbish, since I've been there quite a few times, not once have they ever tried to make any conversation to us..... weird....
They really should have some kind of special discounts for regular customers.
Unfortunately, we do love their extremely expensive scones, 2 pieces for almost rm20????
So, I've decided to search for scones recipes and make myself a tonne of them when I get home..... and I did!!!!
