Father's Guest House --- does not take locals???

Attached is my email to/fro with FGH. The only thing that I had changed was my email id to XXXXXXXXXX for privacy reasons:

Dear Lynn

I saw that link you had given before I contacted you, based on information from that link and reviews in Tripadvisor I had contacted you.

I don’t quite see why can’t you give the next available weekend? Unless you are fully booked for the whole year or you don’t cater for Malaysia?

Thank you and best regards

PNN

And then I noticed this this comment on the review of FGH:

tripadvisor.com/…CHECK_RATES_CONT

So things fall into place. They don't take in locals. I remember a gay couple turned away from B&B due to their sexual orientation. And locals are turned away from FGC due to our citizenship. Is it or is it not? Fellow Malaysians any comments on this please.

I just received the reply from Father's Guest House. To be fair I am posting it here. Even though I can smell ***** from a km away literally. Tripadvisor does not allow the exact choice of words that I feel like using.

Ohh, they DO take Locals in.... ONLY if the locals come along with the angmohs... everyone in CH and Ipoh knows that Fathers is the SPGs hunting ground.... just take a look at their jeeps going up gunung brinchang and to sungai palas - the whole jeep is usually only ang mohs of all ages and their overdressed young malay girlfriends

So that explains the unexplainable reasons behind highest review. Utterly disgusting. They must have been appaled that I want to spend some quality time with my 7 year old son.

I contacted them because of the good reviews and low cost. Proofs that these 2 factors rarely go along side by side. I will need to check other places then. Unfortunately most of the places do not have good review. And the one with it are generally expensive.

Hi, for the price range of RM 100 roundabouts per night, I would recommend that you take a look at the cool point hotel. Its cheap and very very close to the main town of tanah rata. HIdden in a quiet road near the childrens playground and clock tower, quite good value. Rates start at RM 75 nett per night. Its a mainly malay hotel, standard is similar to hotel seri malaysia, but good enough for sleeping, can't beat the location:

cameronhighland-online.com/…CP

Read another interesting complaint from another malaysian reg the fathers guesthouse :

www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa…

But honestly, if you are heading there with your son, its the wrong crowd at the fathers guesthouse. Their guests are usually those young backpackers with scrubby looking clothes, strange long hair and piercings; teenage angmoh girls that don't wear bras (sometimes see them walking down the main road) - might frighten your young child...

hey thanks for the link. Even though it got digressed at one point of time from accomodation to language. Anyways I will check out Cool Point.

I have no intention to scare my son and end up needing to answer his curious questions.

yeah, strange people everywhere... we do get such interesting use of language and slurs in the langkawi forum sometimes.....

We have been also getting lots of posts about raid, khalwat and tourism on the KL & langkawi forum recently.... seeing how "things" are at that guest house and the young unmarried malay girls sharing same room with foreign boyfriends; I wonder if they will start raiding rooms soon....

Hi there, I am surprise to read this thread. I am just like Punita wanting to book since last year. And I also called them few occasions, they are full all year round and two weeks ago when i book they told me room available but when i called them they told me they already full and recommend me to go else.. e.g Mentigi Hotel ? As it has been a long time I havent been to CH I am like Punita after a good nice cosy reasonable price hotels. Bye Dina
