Whatever you do, please don't take the room that's facing the entrance road where you park your car. It was a nightmare trying to sleep in the middle of the night because there were many stray dogs lurking around, barking and howling at each other! They went on and on for hours and it really annoyed me because all I... More

We stayed 3 nights in two double rooms here and we liked it a lot!! The host is very friendly and open and always has some good advice what tour to take, where to get your laundry washed, where to eat - not only for Tanah Rata, but also for e.g. Georgetown. When arriving we were asked by Ana whether... More

very helpful staff, sorting out bus tickets and tours. Nice basic rooms with a common area ("living room"), clean shared bathrooms, free tea and coffee, plus breakfast (toast + jam). the only downside is that the wi-fi is only accessible in the common area, and even there it is so slow that basically useless. plus the pillows felt stuffy/fusty...

This place was great. Clean, communal areas, outside space, kitchen to use, board games, breakfast included, and tea and coffee whenever you want. The host, Jay, was really nice and helpful, giving us great advice about doing the trails on our own. Shared bathrooms were spotlessly clean and had hot water (just what you need after a day hiking). Really... More

It's a bit hard to find so go to Father's Guesthouse and they will call the owners to pick you up. Once you know where it is, it's easy to find. It's on top of a hill so you may want a taxi to get back. The guesthouse is spotless and well-managed, great choice for backpackers on a budget. Internet... More

It is quite a trouble locating this place, bcz this place is basically two units of a block of an apartment, which is called 'CARNATION', under HERITAGE HOTEL. You have to just follow the SIGNBOARD OF HERITAGE HOTEL, enter, and you will see blocks of apartments which look the same. Go straight, and turn left and look for the block... More

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this guesthouse! We just loved the ambiance - you feel like you’re in someone’s home, which is very nice. The rooms are nice and spacious and very clean! I stayed at Father’s Guesthouse 15 years ago and it was such a great experience to meet the owners (who are now managing both Father’s Guesthouse... More

We stayed 2 nights at this very good B&B, in a double room with bathroom. The room was furnished simply, but with a proper wardrobe and bedside tables and lights, with a big window looking out over the beautiful garden. The bathroom was rather basic (BYO toiletries) and we did have a bit of trouble with the hot water heater,... More

My husband is usually quite sceptical about staying at a place such as Gerard's. However, after spending a couple of hours in the room and, interacting with Jay and her lovely son Joshua, he was floored. A lot about Jay's hospitality is already mentioned in the reviews here. What stood out for us was her knowledge of local history and... More
