We booked this guest house online before we started our trip through Malaysia. Sometimes booking online can be hit or miss. The reviews looked good and we liked the location. This place was a hit. We booked room 9 as we wanted a good sized room but didn't need a riverview since we figured we would be out most of... More

The staff were helpful and the hotel very clean and welcoming. There is no fridge in the room, but there is a large guest fridge for... More

A very nice, rustic place to stay.. love the ambience love the room.. but no tv in my room.. but still okay.. love the antique bed.. the view from the back of the guesthouse was also splendid.. the river. Hard to find parking lot though. Next Melaka trip, for sure it is going to be a Wayfarer nite..

Upon our arrival, the auntie (sorry, forgot to ask her name) was very welcoming, friendly, and informative. We were given a map full of hotspot places to visit nearby the area.. She also told us where to eat best food or... More

My husband and I stayed in room 6 for 3 days and loved it! The location is great, walking distance to all the main sights and shopping and food on jonker street. Room 6 surpassed our expectations, especially for the price. We had a large balcony over looking the river which was great to enjoy morning coffee on. The large... More

The guesthouse is located in China town, on the picturesque riverbank. The house itself is an old shop house, tastefully decorated and full of interesting bit and pieces. Timber floors and heavy window shutters – everything about the place is full of history. The rooms are clean, spacious, with new bathrooms. We stayed in a standard room and an Author... More
