Planters Hotel
Ranked #11 of 28 Tanah Rata B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 10, 2011

The room is quite musty, there were hairs on the pillow and cobwebs on the ceiling. Not what you would expect for the price of 150RM. TV in room but not much use if you speak only English.
I would recommend viewing before you pay.

This hotel is more expensive on the weekend but good value on a weekday. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable with en suite bathrooms. I would stay again.

Room Tip: Standard rooms do not have a window. Prices are much higher at the weekend.

Little pricey hotel, good location center of town. Premier room was spacious with big and clean bathroom. Some noise from the main street. Queen deluxe wasn't so good. Musty smell with some damp problems.
No refrigerator, no room service and no breakfast. I give 2.5 star.

PRO:
- Average price (180 RM for King Size bed)
- Large Room
- Excellent location
- Newly renovated / flat TV on room

CON:
- Sheets had not been changed, everything full of hair, we were not the only ones (other guests also complained), we had to change the sheets by ourselves.
- In general the room (and the building) had a dirty shining.
- No breakfast because cook was on holiday!??!
- Bathroom was poorly constructed and you easily flood everything during a regular shower.

the hotel location is good but it's too noisy and having a sleepless night as our room is facing to the main street... it's hardly to get any wifi connection in the room as the network signal is very poor... hotel room is very clean and staff are friendly with a pleasant smile... ample public parking space is available around the hotel and it's free... defintely would come back to this hotel in the future as foods are easily available within a walking distance...

Our family of 4 had 2 adjacent room located to the side of the hotel on the 1st floor.
Our rooms were clean and generally comfortable with no noise from the main street. However, both rooms clearly had damp problems, which accounted for the musty smell. The bathrooms were clean but hot shower water only appeared after running the shower for 10 minutes (no hot water though for the sink).
The staff were friendly and helpful and the lift worked! Breakfast in the hotel's adjoining cafe (La Bella) was painfully slow, probably due to staff shortages. Overall, a pleasant hotel for 2 nights stopover. BTW - if you need a great tour group for Mossy Forest etc, contact Cameron Secrets, based in Father's guesthouse.

Overall:
Fine place. Recently opened, so everything is still fresh. We would definitely recommend this place.

Room:
Room was really ok and clean. The hotel was a bit noisy. We negotiated a fair price (exlusive of breakfast).

Location:
The hotel is located at the main street of Tanah Rata, which is very small so everything is within walking distance.

Other:
Staff is friendly, wifi is available but mainly working in the lobby. There's no aircon, but you won't need it anyway because temperatures are moderate in the Cameron Highlands.
