This very new hotel is right at the Lake Garden. Not sure whether the hotel's architecture blends with the beautiful Lake Garden though.

My Dad just came back from Taiping. He has booked 9 rooms for us in April next year. He said the hotel looks good. Will find out soon.

hi Carol, I wonder whether all the rooms are front facing i.e. looking out to the beautiful lake garden. Below is a pic of the rear of the hotel. Looking out from the back of the hotel would give you a view of Tupai.

hi kayes, this house belongs to my uncle. they have lived there peacefully for almost 30 years. no doubt that the hotel is good for taiping's tourism industry but i can't help feeling sad for the old couple as they had lost the most cherished, memorable time living peacefully and enjoying the serenity of living nearby the lakes. the noise from the many air condition units are really a disturbance because it can be heard from inside the house even if all the doors and windows are shut. a huge rubbish container is situated just a bit away from the fire hydrant which can be seen at the corner in this picture. though it is not exactly next to the house but the sight of the loads of rubbish is really an eye sore. on top of that, the area was recently hit by a sudden flash flood which had never happened before just 2 days before hari raya puasa. the flash flood was so bad that the water even entered the house and damaged the furnitures and other things in the house. two cars were also badly affected by the flood. there used to be a small stream on the right of the house which flowed to the back where the hotel now stood. i can't describe what the other residence around the area are experiencing but i know that my uncle and aunty will never forget and will always cherish the times they had spent living near the lakes.

It is not my place and indeed some may deem it impolite,for me to pass comment on something that does not happen in my Country,but that is as bad as vandalism,branded as progress

hello Zulinda, long time no see!You really ought to be posting to Taiping Talk more often and give us the current news of the beautiful town where you live. When I saw your uncle's residence, I thought it might be a suitable place to house the General Manager/Manager of the hotel. I also thought it unusual that planning permission was allowed to build a relatively large building in such close proximity to a nice small bungalow. The situation reminds me of Hardwicke House along Northam Road in Penang but then Hardwicke House is not a private residence and it is used for commercial purposes. I saw that huge rubbish container but decided to point my camera away from it.

If I am not wrong, this hotel faces a junction.

hi Orange, the Flemington is very near a junction which has a tiny roundabout. Looking at pic below, if you turn right at the furthest end of pic, you will be heading for Taman Aun Say and Tupai. If you continue to keep left on the ring road round the Lake Garden, you will arrive at the Taiping Zoo and the rest of the Lake Garden. By the way, you can see the hotel on the right of pic.

Hello Kayes,


I turned right and saw those low lying rain trees. I am not sure if this hotel faces the road even though there is a small round about.

There are actually two roads running parallel from the Flemington Hotel to the lake garden hawker centre, near the jetty. The inner road is new and it was built to take away some traffic from the old road. Also, as shown in pic above, the old road is lined with raintrees and on this stretch particularly, the branches of those trees are lower than other areas in the lake garden and this has resulted in the tour buses (especially double deckers) being unable to clear the branches. Therefore, 'high vehicles" are advised to use the new (lower) road which starts from the Flemington Hotel.

Hello Kayes,


After turning right, I saw those low lying (to me they looked very low) rain trees. Those hawker centres were on my right after turning right and along this stretch of low rain trees. That's why I was not sure about the round about but all I thought of was if the hotel is facing the road when stopping at the junction in front of this hotel. Sorry for the confusion as I don't know Taiping roads that well.

And just in case you need to book a room, it is 605-8027777 or 605-8207777. No email listed despite the fact there is wifi in all public parts of the hotel. From your room you can access the internet through an ethernet connection and to do this, if you have not brought your ethernet cable, ask reception for one.

Sad to read about guest's complaints about this new and modern hotel in Taiping. What is a hotel if the services and professionalisms are lacking? It's indeed no good for tourism in Taiping - a pride town for we Perakians.

I have stayed at this hotel twice and both times, my stay was pleasant. I did not expect the same level of service that I would expect from, say the KL Hilton or the PJ Hilton but I found the staff good enough. Surprisingly to me, the food at the "coffee house" was also good and service was quick. I liked the basement parking too. However, invariably, there will be complaints about hotels especially on the internet by people using only screen names and posting behind a computer. I don't doubt that the complainants were not happy during their stay but personalities count a lot when making decisions on the quality of a hotel.

As for those complaints using screen names are indeed the pitfalls of the present cyber age. A lot needs to be done - URGENTLY!!


Parking in any hotel esp. hotel with night spots is always not enough. All night entertainment centres in hotel stay open way pass 1a.m. and hotel room guests usually are back to their rooms to retire before this time. Hunting for parking lot around this time is always a hassle. Many room guests have to park illegally by the roadside and have to remove their cars before 8a.m. This makes one wonders if all hotels treasure their room guests more or their nightspot patrons?


Since Flemington Hotel has basement parking, I am sure parking for their room guests should not be a problem.

If you book a lake facing room, you will get a beautiful view of the Lake Garden.

This pic looks like it was taken from the Flemington Hotel in 1962 ......... except of course, there was no such hotel then! Was it taken from the adjacent Pearl Apartments? Anyone? Pic courtesy Gadzy.
