Staff are the same ones from morning till night looking very tired n worn out. Manager or the owner talking very loudly at lobby area ignoring guest shows no respect for paying guest. Keep screaming on top of her voice calling for the staff when the poor receptionist are busy with checking us. Room were clean but the toilet looks... More

Very centrally located which means you can easily walk to anywhere in the friendly city of Tanah Rata. The big drawback is the traffic noise from the street, especially since one of our bedroom windows did not close properly. Showers were great (good pressure and very hot water), rooms clean and beds warm and comfortable. Price expensive though, which does... More

We stayed at Planter's Inn while on holiday in the Cameron Highlands. Upon check-in, the female receptionist was friendly and informative. We entered our room briefly that afternoon to drop off our baggage and quickly left to explore the town for what was left of that day. When we returned to the hotel around 11pm, we were in for a...

They need to improve as most other places need to in Cameron Highlands, we booked eight Mentigi guesthouse but could not reach because of the flooded road so booked planters hotel as a last minute resort. The building from outside appeared nice and clean. They charged us 180 MYR per night for a queen dulexe. Location is excellent. Bed is... More

We happened to find this hotel while returning from the tour of Rose Centre since the tour operator's shop was located near by. The hotel is strategically placed in the commercial hub of Tanah Rata town. Intercity Bus Station is just in front of the hotel and there are plenty of eateries, fast food joints, convenient stores and travel booths... More

We stayed here in mid-August for one night. We were able to call in advance and book a room with two twin beds and on-suite bathroom. The lady on the phone was very pleasant and helpful. She was the same person who greeted us at reception when we arrived, and she was quite nice. We unloaded our bag and went... More

Everywhere was full so this was the last place we tried and had no choice on the price. It was nice, hot showers, nice clean bed, staff were friendly. Its in the middle of town so good location but again I would not say its worth the price. There are cheaper places to stay which are the same standard so... More
