In contrast to several recent reviews, my brother and I stayed at the Eight Mentigi Guest House for 2 nights. The room was comfortable; bathroom somewhat primitive but clean and functioning. The beds were fine. The sitting rooms are pleasant and comfortable. Outside patio is very restful. Mr Smith is very friendly as long as you take your shoes off... More

There are many better places in Tanah Rata. I stayed here February 5 - 9, 2016 in a double with private bath. Building is one level separated into two sections, each with one shared bath and their respective common areas inside, all comfortable and well maintained. There is also a large uncovered patio with good tables and umbrelllas, as well... More

We stayed in this place for 2 nights and concluded that was the worse place we stayed in Asia. We could feel the springs of the mattress on our body the hole night. Very uncomfortable, awful bed. The bathroom tap didn't work so we had to use the shower to wash our hands. The bedroom was very humid with a... More

I stayed here because there weren't any single rooms at the neighbours krs anymore. They don't got single rooms, only double. I think it was about 84. I took a dorm bed for 21,40. I was just staying for one night and getting up early. Compared to krs the mattresses are from heaven. At krs they're thin, here they're thick.... More

My partner and I have been backpacking for 5 months in Asia so we're not picky by any means. All I ask is that if I'm paying an exorbitant rate for an extremely basic room, that I have a toilet that flushes and a shower that works. Especially because the Cameron Highlands are rainy and damp/cold this time of year,... More

Stayed in a doorm. There are two shower/toiletts for 12 people but was no issue when we where there. The owner is nice but tends to give rooms fast to others if you dont show at the named time. So make sure you specify the right time and inform him if you coming late. There is free tea in the... More

As the only non pre-planned part of our trip we have decided to visit the Cameron Highlands and stay at Tanah Rata. As we were arriving on a Friday and it was the time of an Indian holiday we couldn't book any of the guesthouses with better reviews and ended up reserving a quad room here over the phone. The...

The guesthouse has a really good location, near to the city centre and main road, quite near to the bus station as well. The room was ok, really clean, good wifi :) The stuff (especially Mr. Smith) was really kind and helpful :)

The hotel owner is very nice and friendly. It is situated next to centre of Cameron highlands. It also provides package tour for all the places in Cameroon at reasonable price. Hotel is highly recommended for the bag packers.

The good stuff: Clean beds, towels, awesome living room and front porch for hanging out and having meals. Freeflow of coffee and tea. Walking distance to the bustling Tanah Rata town, no problems to find a good meal in Tanah Rata. It has a number of hostel beds and a few private rooms. We took a private room with en... More
