I recently stayed at AB for three nights with my daughter. They have newly built chalets over the road from the main hotel and for $24 Australian a night I was very happy. The rooms are basic but clean and most importantly the air con was highly effective. One minute walk to the beach it was fine as a crash... More

A good place to stay if you want to keep your travel budget low. A decent room for four pax, aircond+fan, small attached bathroom, tv with 3 basic channel, a mini bar (empty), wooden closet & dresser and relatively small balcony. The room rate is MYR 120/night as there were four of us we only pay MYR 60/person for 2nights... More

This is a nice little motel in Langkawi. We stayed here for two nites. The room was quite comfortable, but minimalist. The hotel was dirt cheap charging us only 100 RM (30 $ roughly). Our room was a yard away from the Pantai cenang beach.. great beach. Lots of good food choices close by. They also rent cheap cars and... More

Had booked this hotel for a 10 nights stay but ended up staying only one night. The room we got was stinking from insect repellents (which did not disappear) and mould (from a big (i really mean big) spot in the roof. The walls were dirty and the bathroom was very basic, we had to flush the toilet by filling... More

My family and I spent the Chinese New Year holidays here. I chose this motel based on its good reviews at TripAdvisor. But upon arriving, I struggled to summarise this motel in one sentence. At the end, I think "A Backpacker's Hilton" is an apt description of AB Motel. I stayed at the chalet at the beachside. The room is... More

We stayed and the AB Motel for 5 nights at the end of November. We were allocated a room in the new building on the ground floor right next to the beach. I was initially disappointed that we were not staying in a chalet but on seeing the room we definately had the better deal. The building had obviously just... More
