We had a very nice stay at this guesthouse: the room was big, with private toilet and a little terrace with hammock ouside. The staff are very nice and they helped us in renting a motorbike and calling a taxi. The restaurant is also good and not expensive. I recommend this place and I will go back, when in Langkawi....

Unfortunately despite the cheap price and convenient location I wouldn't recommend this place. We stayed in a wooden "traditional house" and when checking in we noticed that the drain cover in the bathroom had quite a hefty rock over the top. We assumed it was to stop bugs coming in and forgot all about it. On our 2nd night, I... More

Fairly priced and as a long stayed paid only MR80 (£13.50) per night and that was good size private room, queen size bed, A/C, ensuite bathroom, hot shower, TV, WiFi and veranda with chairs and...

I stayed here one night. The air con room is overpriced. It's big and the air con isn't working properly. So no real use for it. I didn't get the vibe over here... That's maybe personal. You like it or you don't. Staff is really friendly. The dorm is cheap but you stay with a lot of persons. Are you... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in the dormitory room. The room is partitioned and there are 10 separate cubicles and one cubicle for each occupant. The charge is RM22/- per cubicle. There is no door just a curtain that shield the cubicle. The lighting at the walkway is dim but each cubicle has its own lighting and socket for charging... More

Been here on there separate occassions and never disappoints. Have stayed in the dorm room (separate sleeping areas) and also the private double rooms. Staff are great. Close enough to main beach and rental of scooters usually available.

Went to Langkawi for a chilled week before flying to Thailand for Christmas and new year and this place was perfect for us!! The location is spot on, literally 5 minutes walk from the strip. The staff were very helpful, letting us know where to go on our mopeds(which you can rent from the lodge). Also have loads more activities... More

We stayed at another hotel at first but moved to The Rainbow Lodge a day after as we heard good things about it. It's really good value for your money and the staff is very friendly.

Rainbow Lodge reminds me of a motel on route 66. It is a basic room, with Old TVs with four channels (1 English news station), as well as a small refrigerator and great air conditioning. The water for the shower is usually hot after you turn on the lighted instant heat switch. However, it's greatest strength is the area out... More
