“relatively cheap but ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

This is our second time here, the first being in December last year. It is basic with clean sheets on the bed, a small screen tv, no roaches in bathroom, intermittent hot water supply and a tired looking but smiling receptionist. Hot drinking water can be requested and the wi-fi is free.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

I booked this hotel due to the first review and also because I wanted to spend time and Teluk Batik (beautiful beach with good amenities) as well as take the ferry and have a walkabout in Pangkor Island.

It wouldn't make a lot of sense in my mind to spend a lot of money on a hotel, if you are not staying in it the most of time. My only risk was the weather, but thankfullu, it played out nicely, with sunshine for two days while we were there.

This hotel is at the corner lot of a row of shophouses and it has two storeys. I phoned them first and as I was with my wife and two small little kids (4 & 2), the reception suggested a deluxe room - which basically meant a double + single bed, on the ground floor. That was a really good suggestion as the staircase was steep and the hotel didn't have elevators.

Checking in required a small deposit, we paid RM50 for a night's stay - RM110 for period. You should be paying RM30 less for off peak season.

Ok, this is really a basic, basic setup. The room is rather cramped with the two beds, and the were no windows. The toilet was clean, with hot water, and the airconditioning was ok.

They gave us two clean towels and some some small soap and that was basically it.

The room had a wardrobe, a dressing table, two plastic stools and a 14" colour TV with really good reception. I was however thankful for the fast WiFi internet. Most of the hotels in Malaysia charge for it, some as much as RM50 per day. With the Wi-Fi, I was able to download maps on my Blackberry and laptop, which made navigating my way around Lumut, Teluk Batik and Pangkor a breeze.

The other good thing is the location. Eventhough you had to pay for parking (RM3 a day), once you have parked, everything else was within walking distance.

There was a laundrette across the street, banks (CIMB, BSN and a few others), KFC at the back and a 20+hour Mamak Shop (DJ?) which has some of the best curry in Lumut.

The jetty to Pangkor is about 5 minutes walk away, as well as the bazaar which sells a lot of local handicraft as well as dried seafood (anchovies, cured fish, crackers, etc).

In short, it was really ideal for my purpose, which was to spend the night, wake up really early, and spend the whole day touring Pangkor Island (RM10 two way ferry trip).

BTW, after your checkout time (12 pm), you can opt to rent the room hourly at RM10 per hour. After 6 pm, only then they will charge you the full day rate.

Best features: Free WiFi and the location
Worst Feature: Thin walls - think twice about sleeping in. You'll definitely wake up when everybody else does.
