“Probably a little too high a price but overall quite good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

This was a decent ensuite room in a nice guest house with a decent communal area. The bathroom was fine, not the best we've had but certainly not the worst, shower was decent. Location a little off the main road but ok.

Staff were very friendly, we arrived from Taman Negara on the Father's Guest House bus (I think they own this place too but I might be wrong). The driver was very helpful and took us round a number of places as it was very busy at no extra charge as we struggled to find a room. We managed to book this place for our second night but had the first night in CH in a dorm. This was a more expensive (obviously) but much better experience and I would recommend it, although you might be able to find something cheaper and definitely don't come here during school holidays as everywhere is busy and charges more because of it.

The guesthouse is convenient for Tanah Rata town, within five minutes walk from shops, restaurants and banks.
The twin room was basic and clean but wardrobe was damp and there were no mosquito screens (few mosquitos due to low temperatures at night).
One of the members of staff, Mr Smith, was extremely helpful and recommended several walks with clear directions.
Our room was next to the outside seating area and reception so could be noisy at times.

Room Tip: One that is not next to the communal area or reception desk.

Eight Mentigi was recommended to me by another GuestHouse I really loved staying at in another city, so naturally I went there pretty confident.
The place was really not hard to find, and really close to the main area of the town (where you can suprisingly enough find a Starbucks and plenty of cheap food).
I took a double room though I was alone. It was okay, not immacutely clean and there were some fly but as soon as I notified it to Smith (one of the owners), he took it upon himself to make me feel comfortable. Smith is one of the best host you could ask for, always there when you need help.

Averall, it's really a budget place, don't expect too much but you can meet incredible people in a nice environment.

Me and my sister went to chua gin hotel(brinchang) costs us rm98 per night on a weekday rate with no shower head in the shower, a paint bucket for a pail, a broken tv table with basic cable channels, n wobbly double bed.

We decided to check out and search fr a better place to stay. We found 8mentigi(tanah rata). Same water heater WITH shower head, no pail, no tv in the room but astro channels in the lobby. N two single beds. With just rm60 for a weekend rate.

I would recommend this place as its cozy and the staffs r kind. They disinfected the rooms before we enter as my sister hates mosquitoes. Even some budget hotels are worst than this place.

This was an ok budget option in a good location just off the main road. We had a twin room with ensuite which was quite shabby and a little musty smelling. The communal areas however were really nice with big comfy sofa's and outdoor tables and chairs. One guy on reception was quite offhand with us but the other was most helpful and arranged a day trip for us and bus tickets to Penang. The breakfast was an extra 5MR and was a fried egg and cheese sandwich, no alternative, and a coffee, they also had drinks making facilities available (but no milk).

The condition of the room is average. But its quite noisy at night, since the room no 2 is very near to d reception. Should provide the towel floor for the toilet (very slippery). Heater is functioning good though not too hot. Should provide the 'KIBLAT' direction for the muslim. Advantage for the backpackers, but not for a big family stay.

Very centralized guesthouse, u can find good food everywhere. La Bella Cafe is a good choice for English breakfast.

Excellent travel tour to Mossy Forest by TJ Travel, Tanah Rata. The office is located at the corner near Agro Bank.

I was glad to find an affordable place with a private room available. But room 10 is next to entrance and hangout area...only window /vent style allows all noise and smoke to pass through.. So, if you're a smoker and stay up late, it's good for you.
No regular housecleaning while visit so if you want more towels or service, go to front desk.
Certainly, the hot water heater didn't work.. Being in highlands, it is needed.
It is conveniently located and it gives basics with a bit more but not charming or homey. Wish it had a basic breakfast or at least some coffee in the morning. But theres some closeby at least.

Room Tip: Contact throught website to reserve a room.. Especially in high season. Don't expect there's...
