An okay hotel if you consider the following: PROS 1. Location, is in a great spot and handy to everything. 2. The receptionist was very friendly and immediately upgraded us when the room we where given had a maintenance issue when we arrived. 3. They were open to negotiating a cheaper rate, we got RM25 under the set rate for... More

Ha is all I can say about this hotel! After arriving and checking into anyway after a long day driving we were pleasantly pleased with the friendliness of the receptionist. That was as far as the good went. The room while large, was outdated, covered in mould and was unclean. All night I had to sleep with a mask to... More

Second time at this hotel. Room facing the road. Little noisy but fine after 1100 pm the road clear. Best view during the sunset. Location near to stall, restaurant, goodies market and bus station. Try talk a walk at night.

This property is well situated in the center of town with all the sounds, smells and atmosphere which that entails. We opted for the premium room which is ample in size. After an interrupted first night sleep due to a sour smell eminating from the bed , upon investigation on the second night of our stay by removing the pillow... More

I visited Cameron Highlands in August 2015. Since I had not booked early and it was high season, there wasn't much accomodation available anymore. Based on Lonely Planet Guide this was one of the better options, and indeed the room was spacious, but also outdated with furniture that has seen better times. Bathroom was not clean, this was taken care... More

I drove to Cameron Highlands without making any hotel booking in the believe that on normal non School Holidays and non Public Holiday Cameron Highlands will have plentybof rooms to book on walk in basis. That is very true but no special rate. I arrived into Tanah Rata and I kind of like this "Flat Land" literally means Tanah Rata... More

We payed 75rm for a standard double room without window and were really happy with it. Clean (except from one cockroach in the bathroom), quiet, hot hot hot shower, hbo and good wifi. Jungle trails, food, fruitstall and beer right outside the door.

We had a terrible experience at Orchid Lodge and quickly switched gears to stay at Planters because when I'd walked by I saw that the lobby looked quite clean and welcoming. We were so relieved by the room, especially as the previous reviews were not good - perhaps they've upped their game here since the last reviews. We got a... More

Staying in room 202, paid RM220/night for Premium Double Room, the room is spacious, but too bad our room was exactly next to the main road which is super noisy at night, the first night I couldn't even sleep well. No air-cond, so please open the windows in the toilet for some air circulation otherwise you'll be "choked" at night.... More
