I stayed 2 nights at the guesthouse and i really love the place. The dorm and the shared bathroom was very clean. Comfy mattress n pillow:). They have nice communal area; it is very cozy and a nice place to relax. Jason and his wife were genuinely friendly and welcoming :). I sincerely would like to thank both of them for the help, support and encouragement provided throughout my stay, I really appreciate it. Half a day tour (BOH plantation, mossy forest, butterfly park, and etc) was excellent (thanks to Jason). The tour guide was extremely good...detail explanation was given and provide ample of time at each destination without feeling rushed. Jason provided a lot information pertaining to tourism in Malaysia and indeed my learning curve has increased after chatting with him. I couldn't have asked for anything more...a great place to stay.

My girlfriend and I spent four nights at Father's Guesthouse in early September. We had a great stay! Our room (double with shared bathroom) was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The shared bathrooms were ok but often occupied early in the morning, there are only a few bathrooms available. The location is perfect, far enough away from the action to offer peace and quiet yet only a few minutes stroll from the main strip. The atmosphere at the guesthouse is very welcoming. There is free tea for guests which is a huge draw! The best thing we found was the kind staff who helped us to plan out next stop in Malaysia. They also arranged some very good tours of the Highlands. Recommend highly.

Room Tip: Our room which faced the quiet road was exposed to a very loud and regular cockeral call!

I stayed there with my family for 3 nights. We really enjoyed our time there. The Father's Guest House is big there are a lot of places to sit around and chill with your friends or family. We stayed in double room with attached bathroom. The rooms are kinda spacious very clean. The bathroom is not big but also clean. You can take the rooms with shared bathroom without worrying. Everything is clean!!!There is no brekfast but you can make tea and coffee anytime on your own. And what;s more the staff is super friendly. They help you to book some trips but also they are willing to talk. It's a really really nice place.

I enjoyed my stay at Father's guesthouse - the location is great, the staff is very nice and helpful, the beds are comfy and the bathroom/toilet facilities are ok. I only give 4 points out of five because of 1) poor breakfast (but you can have tea and coffee the whole day!) 2) I stayed there for 6 nights in a double room and there was no cleaning at all.

If you visit Cameron highlands, stay at Father's guesthouse! It moved one month ago and is totally new: thick, new matrasses and clean! Dorm is good and cheap!
Most important: the owners are really helpfull and kind.

Please notice the map in the lonely planet isn't right anymore because father's guesthouse moved.
