Hotel Review: Novotel Taiping Perak

Travelling from KL to Penang? Fancy breaking up your journey?

Taiping, the town of many firsts, has plenty of interesting tastes and sights to offer such as Malaysia's oldest coffee mill, Malaysia's oldest zoo and Malaysia's oldest museum. It is also the second largest town in Perak after Ipoh.

Novotel Taiping is the perfect launch pad for exploring this quaint town and Taiping's major attractions, thanks to its strategic location in the heart of Taiping town. As the only International hotel brand in Taiping, guests can be assured of a comfortable stay with the familiar brand standards of the Novotel chain.

The hotel boasts 197 well-appointed hotel rooms and suites, a restaurant, main ballroom and six meeting rooms. We stayed in the Grand Deluxe Room, located on Level 12 hence we had a pleasing view of Taiping town. Ideal for a families, the room was very spacious (38 m sq) and comes with a king-sized bed as well as a large sofa (which can double up as a bed for a young child).

The room is also equipped with a 41" LED TV with children's channel, work desk, coffee machine, minibar fridge, safe deposit box, complimentary high speed WiFi and separate bathroom with standing shower.

Relax by the hotel pool located on Level 7, which offers a beautiful mountainous view of Maxwell Hill (Bukit Larut). There is a children's pool (0.45m) in addition to the main pool (1.2m). For fitness enthusiasts, there is also a gym located on this level.

The Kids club, also on Level 7, where you will find some toys and TV.

Breakfast is served daily at Food Exchange (Level 7) from 6.30am to 10.30am daily. A selection of local favourites (nasi lemak, noodles), egg station, salad and pastries are available. On Saturday evenings, guests can enjoy a Mediterranean BBQ at the restaurant at RM65 per adult and RM45 per child. Some of the highlights at the BBQ include fresh seafood (fish, slipper lobster, oysters), salads, seafood risotto, live pasta cooking station and desserts.

There is also a Gourmet Bar on Lobby level, serving cakes and light bites.

Novotel Taiping is located above Taiping Mall, and shares the same parking facilities with the mall. Hotel guests may park at Level 6 and enjoy complimentary parking during their stay. Guests can also directly access the mall via the hotel lobby.

For those travelling with their family, we highly recommend these attractions, all within 10 minutes drive from Novotel Taiping.
