“Great and friendly place to stay”
Reviewed April 12, 2010

My girlfriend and i have just spent 4 nights in the Cameron Highlands at Daniels Lodge and was by the best place we have stayed at on our travels. We had a double ensuite room which was a good size, great shower and toilet and very comfy bed... it was only 45MYR... cheap compared to others... we were going to go to father guesthouse but went and looked at this one instead and we are glad we made this decision.... the staff were great, hepful and great english, organised wicked tours and cheaply. The commual areas of the guesthouse were so nice, comfy and relaxing so you could chat and meet people.... over 1000 dvd to choose from and watch in a mini cinema style and for free also... internet was great and cheap.... the jungle bar was relaxing, good beer, nice pool table and awesome bonfire, added bonus was the sport and animal planet channel that was on in the bar. Overall great place to stay, and if anyone reads a bad review of this place ingore it and try for yourselves.... ps the lonley planet 2004/06 when rhey wrote bad reviews were wrong..... miss daniels lodge

We thought that we might have trouble getting accommodations while in the Cameron Highlands and were recommended to try Daniel’s Lodge at Tanah Rata. We telephoned the lodge the day before and were assured that they had a double room for us with an ensuite and hot water for RM$60.00. No credit card details were asked for.

From Penang, we took a mini-van to the Cameron Highlands for $38 each and the trip took about 4-hours non-stop. We felt sorry for the driver as he only had one other passenger and took his two children (boy and girl) for the ride. The driver left us right to the front door of the lodge and we were shown our room. It was a Backpacker’s place and was basic but delightful.

Our room was clean and tidy. There was a video room and a main lounge was on the veranda as well as several Computers at a minimal cost and you could have tea or coffee for $1 or boiling water for free. We were concerned by the nearby Jungle Bar and were advised that it could become noisy depending on the crowd there – but we heard no noise and slept well.

For breakfast, we wandered down the road to the Kang Hotel (also part of the business) and enjoyed a western breakfast at a reasonable cost. We had previously booked an overnight train from KL to Singapore the next day so our time was limited. We happened to visit a Bus/Information centre and booked ourselves a ½ day tour which allowed us only minutes to catch the bus which was supposed to leave at 1:45 for KL. As we did this through the same agent, we were assured that the bus driver knew that we were booked and would not leave before the tour arrived back.

Everything went according to plan and we had a great visit and saw a little of the Cameron Highlands.

This place was damp, dark and smelly.Kangs have two places one is a hotel the other a lodge.The hotel is slightly more central but the lodge was conveniently located too. The room just stank of damp it was easily the worst place we stayed having travelled for 6 months.The staff were freindly and helpful but I must say I hated the room,Look elsewhere, better still dont come to Cameron Highlands.Its so touristy and unless you want to vist strawberry farms and a very touristy tea plantation dont bother.

We booked our room at Kang (Daniel's) Lodge because it sounded like a good spot to stay in the Cameron Highlands.

When we arrived (by bus) there was a representative from the lodge to pick us up... we said we needed an ATM to get money out and he said that was one near the lodge, bundled us in the van and drove off.

There was no ATM near the lodge, so when the surly staff asked us to pay up front for the accommodation we had to walk down the litter-strewn foul-smelling street to the main road to find an ATM.

The room itself was tiny. We asked for a double and got a grotty triple with bumpy bed, unclean sheets and an overwhelming stench of mould (we had to get all our stuff washed again when we got to our next destination). The communal showers however, were OK.

The restaurant they were advertising is actually on the main road (a 7-10 min walk away) and when we went to the famed bar after dinner....it was completely empty... not a soul in sight and that includes bar staff!!

Its certainly not the worst accommodation I've ever stayed in, but it is the most over-rated and over-priced.
