It’s been a longtime since I stayed there but it was fabulous even then and the Long Bar was on the ground floor with access to the garden – it’s how the tiger got in!

When I was last there the bar I saw the bar had been moved to the first floor, the tiger’s head was gone to be replaced by an ad for Tiger Beer, the floor was covered in peanut shells (it seems it was the in thing to do!!!) and it was jam packed with tourists.

While the hotel may be lovely it has become a tourist trap and shopping centre and for that reason alone I’d no longer stay there.
