Backpacking as a couple we stayed at the Cabin for 3 nights in early Jan 2012. We paid RM150 p/n for a double ensuite room with hot shower, a/c, fridge, wifi and TV. When we left, we felt that we'd paid over the odds for our room and were completely underwhelmed by our experience. For the first time in SEA we were taken in by the online marketing and we regretted it right away - it simply didn't live upto its spiel!
Location - 100m walk to the beach and right on the main strip in Cenang.
Cleanliness - This place was thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis.
Comfort - it was comfortable, but we expected it to be given how much we paid for it!
Price - at RM150/US$48/£31 power night it was unquestionably the most we've spent anywhere in asia and we just did not get value for money. We had a look at a few other places in Cenang, and they offered similar services for far less - unfortunately we'd booked in advance so couldn't take advantage.
The niceties that you pay for are pointless. The fridge turns off when you're out of the room meaning that nothing stays cool. The TV is a 32"plasma screen but the management have not subscribed to any cable channels so there's very little to watch - we found 2 English channels worth watching. We haven't bothered to much with tv around asia but when you've paid for it you want it to be there!
Finally the wifi was intermittent in the room at best and most of the time didn't really work. Because there's not really a communal reception, it wasn't a case of moving closer to the router, it was either working or not.
Service - for the sort of money we paid we expected a 24hr reception, not one that closes at 8pm. In fact, the lack of a property reception in general was a real negative. There was a cabin that had someone in it for some parts of the day but it hardly had that hotel feel to it.
The service we received was actually quite poor. On one night, all of the staff had a party in the room next to us which went on until 2am, meaning we had no sleep. The walls are so thin and the staff must know this yet they were happy to keep all of their guests awake.
