It is impossible to rate Mr. Lee and his guesthouse any higher. I advise everyone to stay here, it is like staying with your Uncle that wants very much for you to report back to your Daddy what a great time you had in his town. We were here 3 nites and Mr Lee did everthing for us, and now... More

Nice, friendly owner. Not the type of guy to talk for hours, but more of a quiet, gentle mind. Always up for giving good advice and very concerned. At any time we wanted he would pick us up or drop us off in the city centre for free. He would give us a cellphone to call him. He even called... More

We stayed for only 1 night on July 12. It was a transit stop for catching the boat ride to the Perhentians the next morning. Mr. Lee's place is in a quiet neighbourhood, which is about a 10 min car ride to Chinatown area. Our room was clean with AC & ceiling fan. Fresh linen, towels, soaps are provided. We... More

We stayed at Lee's Guesthouse one night, in transit waiting for the Ferry to the Perhentians. When we booked, we just wanted a random place to stay, but what a nice surprise to meet Mr. Lee! First of all, the place is impeccably clean. The kitchen, the bathroom, the common area, our room, the bed linen. Really nice! Then, Mr.... More

Quite frankly perfect – and just what I needed. Lee picked me up from the airport at 11.30pm and took me to a clean AC room for the night. The following morning he arranged a nice breakfast and transfer to the Perenthian islands. Before leaving, he took me to town to repair my jeans at a tailor, get a hair... More

We stayed for just one short night, on our way from Kota Bharu to the Perhentians, to catch the first boat in the morning. Mr Lee picked us up from the airport when we arrived around midnight, and he did arrange the boat tickets to the Perhentians for us as well. Stayed in contact via text, reminding us to confirm...

We only stayed one night and Mr Lee was very helpful and organised transport and boat tickets both coming and going. The guest house is comfortable and clean and offered a basic breakfast of toast and cereal but it is well out of town. On the plus side, Mr Lee dropped us off at a local mall and picked us... More

We stayed at Lee's guesthouse for 2 nights when traveling from Thailand to the Perhentian Islands. Firstly, the room was very clean, spacious, with a/c, and comfortable beds. Mr. Lee took excellent care of us, bringing us to and from Kota Bharu (it is not in the city center), provided cereal and toast breakfast, as well as arranged our travel... More

We stayed at Kota Bharu for a few days on our way to east coast islands. Mr Lee was the most amazing host providing us everything a traveller might need - comfortable and clean guesthouse with all the facilities one needs, great breakfast, timetables and rides, tickets and all the local knowledge one might ask. This is a home a... More

If you plan to go to the perhentians, stay here. Mr Lee charges the same prices as a regular taxi or a regular boat ticket, but it saves you searching or hassling. He picks you up at the airport or trainstation, drives you to kuala besut and gets your boat ticket. All you have to do is sit back. He... More
