We booked on to the strength of the reviews and ratings...... all of them are true so will not repeat them here. Certainly May could not have tried harder to help us enjoy our stay. We were particularly impressed with the comfort and quality of the bedding and towels. The wifi connection was very good too. We have not stayed... More

First I would say our experience with Driftwood was totally different from our other stays. This was an unique experience for us. I have been to number of places in Malaysia, I always read online reviews before selecting a place to stay. I can say confidently that even the best hotel has its own share of criticism. When I was... More

During our stay, we found that everything mentioned are true: - Friendly & helpful hosts - Clean house & room, including bathroom - Helpful info - Lots of amenities, comparable to nice-hotel standard - Good location (not in Jonker, but just minutes for us to drive there) For us,...

I stayed here for 4D3N with my partner. May and Sylvester are very hospitable and generous to share with us the travel information once we reached there. They were great when they willing to take us to the places nearby in the morning if we are heading to the same destination.We stayed in a clean and large Carribean themed room... More

Stayed here with my wife and 18 month old daugther for 2 nights 8-9 Nov. We can highly recommend Driftwood as a base for you explorations of Melaka. The only thing is that you would really need to have a car if you do. The main area tourist area of Melaka is about a 10 min drive away. The place... More

I was a bit difficult to find the guesthouse but we had only a map of Malaysia with us in our rental car. On the date of arrival it was already night and heavily raining, so it was on top difficult to find the guesthouse. As we arrived we had a very nice and warm welcome of May and Sylvester.... More

May and Sylvester are excellent hosts. I forgot to call before arriving and they were very nice to take time out to give us some info of the sights. Also we were supposed to meet up with another pair who couldn't find the place. Sylvester was very kind to pick them up. The rooms were very clean and stocked with... More

I originally came to Melaka, not really knowing what to expect from the town, so we booked just for a week. But the place was super clean, neat and charming, the hosts so tentative and helpful - we extended our stay for 2 more weeks - and we are not excluding the possibility that we will extend further. :) The...

We reached the guest house past midnight but they still welcomed us warmly. We felt a bit guilty cause from their attire, we can see that they are preparing to sleep. Nonetheless, they still welcomed us and treat us so nice! We stayed in the Carribean room and Japanese room. The design are awesome! Seriously! The toilet are also very... More
