This family run hotel is a 3 minute walk from the main road in Tanah Rata. My room was clean, well aired and had a comfortable bed, desk and chair, wet room and a balcony. There is a wonderful garden for sitting out. They have a restaurant which does breakfast and lunch as well as cream teas. Soft drinks and... More

I stayed here twice. The first time, I visited this place during a backpack holiday and then the accomodation was ok for 2 nights. The second time, I went with my partner and although we took one of the better rooms upstairs, we were disappointed. We got a room with just one door that separated the room from our neighbours....

Small place with simple rooms. Pros: Good price. Good homemade food. Beautiful garden. You can book a tour or a bus to another town (however you can do it in any hotel around there). Contras: If it is cold outside (and it's often cold in the mountains) it's cold inside.

Pros: The biggest advantage of this hostel is its position, just off the main drag through Tanah Rata - convenient to all the cafes, shops and markets, buses etc, but without traffic noise. It's tidy and clean, rooms cleaned daily. WiFi access in the rooms, some have TV but other rooms don't (specify if you want it). Most rooms have... More

Nice family ran hotel with own garden and parking, both Mr and Mrs Velu were helpful. We book an apartment for 9 pax but were shown a new house nearby, not too convenient to walk to main town, Since there were ample rooms available we change back hotel rooms. Price were reasonable but would be better if there's tv available... More

I have never seen a hotel as clean as the Hillview Inn; they were cleaning when we arrived in the afternoon, and still at it first thing the next morning. The whole place was very well cared for, a bit tired here and there, but spotless. Guests must leave shoes in lobby area before going upstairs to rooms, slippers are... More

I stayed here 4 nights and really enjoyed it. I caught a cold before so spent in the room far more time then I'd like. In my state it was really nice to have comfortable bed in a quiet and clean place. The room was spacious, furniture quite good. The staff was also nice.

this hotel is located in the Cameron highlands. It is very basic but comfortable. The room was basic but had plenty of space and was clean. No air conditioning but we didn't need it as was cool enough. The beds were fairly comfortable and extra blankets were given on request. The lock on the door was loose and didn't seem... More

This hotel was very basic. I stayed here for 2 nights. First impressions very good. Staff appear friendly enough. Check in was easy. The rooms are very basic and a bit outdated however are for for purpose. There was adequate space for 2 people in the twin room and a small balcony. The bathroom was quite small too and it... More
