Stay at Garden wing cottage and occupy 6 rooms in the cottage. Interesting finds of antique furniture in every room with varying styles but all pointing to the traditional Peranakan culture. Sleep on the high queen-sized bed for added thrill. Big spacious common areas for interaction. Good place to stay with big groups of people. Love playing with the outdated... More

A nice place to be with a warm environment and great hospitality. You wouldn't get to see antique furnitures everyday. This place is nearby to both jonker street and pantai klebang. Breakfast can be prepared upon request. However, please be prepared for mosquitos. Besides that, its a nice place to stay.

Furniture from my grandparents' era, down to the vacuum flask with the cork stopper and the aluminium enamel tray it sits on. The giveaway is the plasma that is bolted to the wall. Beautifully landscaped and has good service. Along with old school living, the mosquitos came with the package... I was bitten in around 8 spots over breakfast. Location... More

But the triple room is spacious with 1 queen and 1 sgl bed.Breakfast is simple with bread,susages,kaya,some nonya kueh and scrambled eggs.

I stayed at Cyclamen cottages with some friends who brought me here from Kuala Lumpur to explore the Peranakan Chinese culture of the area. Chris and CIndy have restored these cottages (and are expanding in the vicinity) to older Malaysian style. The room was wonderfully air conditioned, and the whole atmosphere was really cozy and homey. I truly enjoyed the... More

For a place that is run by the owner itself I dont find any welcoming gesture during check in. Well yes she is accomodating but friendly ? As in welcoming you to her house ? No. But the place oh boy. Lovely. From the deco, to even the smallest detail. Five star for the Melaka vibes. Plus point is that... More

We had a terrific stay of four nights at Cyclamen Cottage. Rather than staying near the buzz of Jonker Street, we much preferred the quiet environment a little outside of it all to enjoy a relaxed, freshly prepared breakfast. On the first day, Chris, the owner, was so nice to give us a ride into town and was eager to... More

We had a good time staying in this nice inn. Our first impression of this place was actually not good. The room we booked is much smaller than we expected and have no window. We used Hostelworld for booking and used Agoda for room information because Hostelworld doesn't charge service fees (17%) but has no room information. The smallest room... More

We had a lovely stay here. Staff were so helpful and friendly, taking us into town to orient us to the highlights. Rooms were very clean and comfortable and the antiques around the place gave a lovely charm. We stayed in a kind of annexe which had a lovely indoor/outdoor pool. Breakfast included in the lovely garden. It is a... More

Not the usual "hotel feel". Feel at home with friendly owner who will make breakfast for you. Good location - quiet - away from town and traffic. Very clean room and greenery. You can get very good sleep. Just take 10 min drive using the coastal way to reach Jonkar Walk and for shopping. Near to klebang beach + famous... More
