Lone Pine Hotel : Rooms with a view

Lone Pine
After a tour around Lone Pine Hotel, it is time to head indoors and explore the accommodation it provides.

Lone Pine Hotel provides both old and new buildings that blends as one. We were housed in the original hotel that had been refurnished internally.
Blend of old and new
Premier room

Our room category was the Premier rooms. These would be the rooms of choice with those travelling with a small family, with 2 queen size beds, it it big enough to fit 2 adults and 2 kids.
Rooms are decorated in contemporary flair with a dash of blue and orange to accentuate it.
Queen size beds
The first thing the boys did was to jumped on the beds when we got to the room. Given how comfy the beds were, they were in slumberland in no time.
This bed is mine!
The room does not come with a desk in the room. Being a hotel catering more for the holiday crowd rather than the business crowd, it is rather unnecessary. TV and DVD players were provided. The TV channels were limited and there were no channels catering to kids. Nonetheless a quick stop at the Nightly Pasar Malam would easily get you the latest kids show to watch on the DVD player.

The premier rooms comes with either a balcony or a backyard . We had the rooms that comes with a balcony that has a chill out corner and a table for dining.

With old school window shutters, round marble table and black and white tile floors, the balcony resembles a page for the past.

Since all the rooms faces the sea, we recommend opening the windows to enjoy the sea views. However do take note that mosquitoes might do a mini invasion , so keep those sliding doors lock. Mosquito repellent is also available in the room.
Great view
The toilet/bathroom is generously sized with a bathtub, separate shower and concealed toilet seat. The black and white tiles extends the nostalgic charm to the room.
Plush bath towels and face towels are generously provided.

Heated water is available for showers too.

We like the presentation of the in house toilet amenities.
Toilet amenities
Other amenities such as coffee, tea, water and even milo are provided. There are also complimentary  can drinks that are top up daily.

Another bonus for guests are the lounge slippers that are for guest to take home. We thought that this is a great gesture and most useful compared to the normal room slippers.

Deluxe Room

We got a chance to see other room categories within the hotel. The first stop is the deluxe room. It may be the entry rooms, but it comes in a generous size of 45 sq meters , one of the largest deluxe rooms avaliable on Batu Ferringhi stretch.
Outdoor soak tub
The bonus you get is an outdoor soak tub at the balcony. This is a really cool feature. Imagine just lying there soaking and having a tan at the same time. Absolutely divine .
Bathroom are smaller than the premier room. With the bathtub located at the balcony, we think just would have little complains here.
Ocean View
All rooms faced the ocean with the views punctuated by Casuarina trees. The view was indeed beautiful but we do reckoned the hillside view from the corridor has its own charm

Lone Pine Suite
Lone Pine Suite
If you are traveling with a larger family, or if you want to make this stay a little more special, consider renting a suite for the stay.
Each suite comes with a living room, a dining area and even a kitchenette.
The suite comes with 2 bedroom.
Master bedroom
A huge master bedroom that comes with an equally impressive toilet with double sinks and french door to give it a grandiose allure.
Impressive toilets
The second bedroom is similar to what you could find in a deluxe room sans the balcony. Additional pull out beds can be requested and the suite can fit a family of 6.
It was a delightful stay at Lone Pine Hotel.
