“A hotel with less memorable experience.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We stayed in a deluxe room on March 2013. Location wise, its a 5-10 mins walking distance to Tanah Rata town. There were ample of car parking bays.

The waiting time during checking-in should be improved. When we checked-in, the bed spread was dirty and did not look fresh and we requested it to be changed. The housekeeping staff changed it an hour later.

Room was generally clean and had a forest looking view.

The morning breakfast was average and consist mainly of asian cuisines.
Will not be our primary choice during out next visit to Cameron Highlands.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on higher floor for better view.

Suitable for family with young kids who loves the nature and its cold during Dec. We visited twice.
The pasar malam only happens during school holidays and certain days only.
We loved Century Pines Resort for its serenity. Our first visit was just us, while the second holidays was with my family.
The weather was between 8• to about 20• during night while daytime hits a max of 25• if you travel during December.
Theres some tasty food around.

I have been to this hotel many times. An updates, when we were in the restaurant/cafe, there were certificate of JAKIM & Pahang halal authorities.

Though it is just a certificate, it carries a lot of relief. Halal by words from the staffs is ok, but if the cafe is certified, no more worries.

Its near to a mosque, for Jumaat and jemaah prayer for those who wish to.

Room Tip: Garden view

The only positive about this place is the location. It is near to Mary Brown, Starbucks n shopping area. Restaurant staff expect you to get your own seat and eat burnt omelete. The room is dated and the toilet leaks. Be warn.

To call this a resort is very misleading, it has a magnificent foyer which belies the terrible rooms, very poor cafe and the advertised "English Pub" that no longer exists. The general attitude of the staff was appalling as they went from guest problem to guest problem throughout our shortened stay. The few guests that were staying ALL seemed to have issues with the hotel. The rooms were of very poor quality, old and in need of serious maintenance and updating.

This was a very disappointing experience.

Room Tip: Avoid block B and C

Thank you for choosing Century Pines Resort . In regards to your complaints , we are indeed taking it seriously and will be doing the upgrading and touch up phase to phase . We have already completed all the garden rooms and even put up flat screen TV .
Please specify which internet search engine that advertise that we have ENGLISH PUB .As far as we are concerned , we have never put up such facility before .
As for the staffs attitude issue , we will be seriously looking into this and take action with immediate effect . May I know which category of room were you staying ?I need to know it specifically to check thorough on the condition of the room .
Thank again .

We stayed at Century Pines resort at the end of February and were surprised how poor the service was an how aged the rooms looked.
When we arrived we were surprised to find a bathroom with no shower curtain, a TV was SO old and had a broken plug so didn't work (Didn't want to watch it anyway, but besides the point) and a hair dryer that was a fire hazard!
The hotel looks like it would have been lovely about 25-30 years ago and hasn't really been touched since. The hotel lobby i thought was particularly beautiful but just didn't encompass the rooms.

The one redeeming factor of Century Pines is Breakfast - There is a good selection and food was good quality and the local dishes were really quite tasty!

Service was pretty slow and unattentive - Nobody really appeared to care if you had a problem and when we left, we said goodbye and got nothing in response - The girl at reception with crazy contact lenses didn't even lookup!! We shouted goodbye again and got nothing still... we laughed and left.

We had a good time in the highlands but couldn't recommend this hotel.

Thank you for the complaints and choosing to stay with us .
Regarding the hot water issue , most of the highlands hotels and city hotels are different situation .
We did not do the centralise hot water system is due to getting the mechanics up at the highlands is rather inconvenient , if there is anything out of order , it may takes weeks or days to repair which we are trying to avoid this to happen , therefore we prefer to fix individual system which requires guest to switch on the hot water manually( there is sign indication ).

Despite being a decent hotel the place is just tired and in need of a fresh lick of paint amongst other things. The beds were clean and the rooms had ok facilities it just wasnt what I'd normally go for.
