Its right by the beach and it is not bad for what it is value wise. The best thing is the location. Staff are friendly. However please make sure to avoid room on 2nd floor by the veranda. I stayed in this room and its impossible to get any sleep at all. People sit on the veranda and ignore the... More

Accommodation was on one side great because of the location approx. 15 meters from beach, but on the other side poor because you can hear pretty much all what your neighbours are doing as well as whats going on in the hallway. Right now there is a construction of another building going on right next to the hostel so was... More

Very friendly welcome at E.T Guesthouse from the owners, who keep the place spic and span! I found it exceptionally clean for such a reasonable price. I also needed an adapter and when I enquired where to buy one, they were happy to provide me with one which they said I could keep for our whole stay. We also had... More

Perfect location right across from the beach, nice balcony out the front to relax with a book and enjoy the sea breeze. The rooms are basic but spacious and clean. The beds are very soft but I found it comfortable with a nice firm pillow. The family running the guesthouse are kind and hospitable. Helped us out with an adapter... More

We came to Batu Ferringhi with a family for 4 days. I chose this guesthouse based on the trip advisor recommendations and we found this place very nice and quiet in the night. We booked two rooms with fans and it was not hot in the evening and during night time. You can buy coffee, tea, soft drinks and a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, paid 70RM per night. Right next to beach, got great local advice from the owners who were absolutely lovely. No mosquitoes, clean, cheap and friendly what more do u want? For breakfast, turn right out of guesthouse and try Ferringhi Blue Wave. Superb cheap brekkie, best poached eggs I have ever had. For evening... More

This place is nicely tucked close to the beach. Very friendly and helpful owners. We were allowed to park in the porch of the property, much to our delight. Don't expect a 5-star hotel, but rather, expect a rustic, 1970-80s Chinese home when you stay at this property. We stayed in a double bed room with shared bathroom and fan.... More

The family that run the guesthouse are very friendly and accommodating. We had checked out and had a mid night flight, not only did they look after our luggage they offered us showers to freshen up prior to our flight. The location is 20 metres directly from the action packed beach, full of water sports going on. There is no... More
