The Grand Kampar Hotel
The Grand Kampar Hotel is a reasonable new hotel built in the new area of Kampar Town. The old town turns out to be a nice little local town on the edge of the Cameron Highlands jungles in the Kinta Valley. More about the town you can read here (and trust me, it worth to read and then visit!!)
I have been several times to the Gua Tempurung caves and I have visited the town (old and new) several times too.
My friend Miss Rosmah was surprised "Kampar is really nice, it's great you know it but have you been to the Grand Kampar Hotel?", she asked me. Why don't you come over and see for yourself?". So I had a good "excuse" to go. Visit a friend and at the same time check the hotel where Miss Rosmah works. As if I needed an excuse!
The Hotel is not "just another" hotel. The hotel is a stylish building you can see from afar from both north and south side.
It's built in the new part of Kampar. Especially at night it has a cozy atmosphere with small restaurants offering different food, from Thai (recommended here) to Chinese and Malay.
You can chill out in the cool evening breeze watching your favorite football game or simply relax and look back on your day spent in Kampar.
The hotel has 155 rooms available for a surprisingly low price. There are 4 different types:
All rooms, yes, I have seen them all, are great. I stayed in the Standard Room. It was very spacious, with very comfortable bed, power hot/cold shower, fridge, coffee and tea making facilities. Of course, like all the other good hotels that I had stayed before, the room had the air-conditioning, cable TV with in-house movies, IDD telephone, hair dryer (though I don't even have hair!) and an electronic key for the lock.
I could have brought my laptop because there is wireless internet connection covering the whole area. A great service.
I am a curious person so I asked Miss Rosmah to show me the other types of rooms. The family suite with 1 double and 2 single beds looked very nice and comfortable:
But if you come for business and you need a hotel room with a work space, you will be well served too, the executive suite has a bedroom and a living room.

The Grand Kampar Hotel has a variety of facilities indoor and outside. For guests, the roof of the hotel has a nice little swimming pool with great views to the east of the hills and to the west a view over the new town and the old tin mine areas which nowadays are converted into fishing ponds.
At the ground floor you will find the reception, the Grand Kampar Cafe, where you will have your breakfast.
Breakfast, Miss Rosmah told me was a simple fare. Well... it was a standard buffet with Malaysian and continental breakfast. Standard was rice, fried rice, fried noodles, vegetables, chicken and ... and ... too much to mention.
I have to mention the nasi lemak which has very good chicken and excellent sambal. Of course coffee, tea, and fruit juices are available too.
Fried eggs and toast were made on the spot. You can't get them fresher than that.
Actually, lunch is also served in the cafe. Rice, noodles, vegetables, chicken and noodle soup. In short, a very good variety. It was hard not to eat too much!
There is also a Chinese restaurant which mainly serves dinner.
At the ground floor also, you will find the safe deposit box for use for the guests.
At the Mezzanine Floor there is a business center with the Internet. For entertainment, they have the Alluvial Music Lounge. The Palong Function room is also located here.
