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 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

Good location in central tanah rata but small room with no fridge or air con and the tv screen continually rolled and was fuzzy. No breakfast included. Nice basic room in a hotel with a lift but very over priced in comparison to other hotels.
