S tayed here for two nights and suffered from the noise of our 'neighbours'. The staff is not very welcoming and sometimes absent for a while. The place is charming though, close to the centre, and you can book tours from the hotel.

The rooms are quite big and clean. But windows and (balcony) doors don't close well. Becourse it is often cold in the highlands the hotel is cold as well. Staff is helpfull and can help you with a lot of activities. The price is good (value for money).

Nothing special to report- just a room to sleep. We spent 3 nights at Hillview Inn. The room had no a/c or fan, but this was not necessary in the cooler climate of the Cameron Highlands. The linen didn't look clean, but must have been washed, as it smelled fine. The room had a double bed, wardrobe, attached bathroom with... More

Though there's noise of a construction going incessantly in the day time that marred the serenity of the place. However, the nice garden and the balcony makes this hotel a nice place to take it easy amd read a book or simply do nothing and just be. I would recommend this place for someone wbo looks for a no frills... More

My reviews on here are usually quite short but I think it will be helpful to offer more detail on this one. First the good. It's basic but very clean and pretty cheap $108 for two nights. There's also a cafe area at the front that is inexpensive and does decent breakfast options. While the rooms are fairly small and... More

This hotel is in a very good location within easy walking distance of the town and It is a very attractive building. The rooms are basic and in need of some refurbishment but they are clean and comfortable. It was a little cold at night but this was actually quite a refreshing after heat of the rest of the country.... More

we were looking for a place close from the tanah rata from where the sightseeing tours pickups will be available. And the hotel is perfect for the same. The hotel location is quite good, but as everywhere in Malaysia, soon the hill view will vanish as the very hill is being scraped and bulldouzed to make room for further activity.... More

Hotels are very expensive here for what you get. This hotel is spotless but rooms are small. Carpets are threadbare and stained. Breakfast is extra. This hotel needs new carpet and some bedding. Only sheets and a blanket supplied. No a/c but not really needed it here. Lights stay on outside all night so I woke up at 3am and... More

I have just finished a tour with G Adventures, this hotel was our stay in the Cameron Highlands. The rooms are basic but clean. Each room has their own balcony, and if possible as for the garden view . The staff and the owner were amazing, she is from Indian , and reminds you of favourite grandmothers. The walk to... More

The standard offered is of a guest house or a hostel. Clean but outdated, minimalistic. The biggest disadvantage: the temperature in the night. It was very, very cold. Only blankets on the bed so we had to sleep in our clothes.
