Father's Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Stayed at fathers guest house in Tanah Rata for 3 nights. Valerie in the reception was lovely and very helpful with everything from bus tickets to hiking trails to restaurants. Stayed in a single room with attached bathroom which was really nice. Didn't see the dorm so can't comment on that. Comfy common areas, very quiet place. The guest house is especially nice because it is a short walk from the main road so less noisy and fewer people.

Father's Guest House is in a great location right off of the main road. Bear in mind that Tanah Rata is very small. Rooms are clean and spacious. You can book various day trips at the front desk. Service is great.

The place was a lil bit hard to find, but once we were there, it made up for the wee bit trouble. Love the surroundings. Our room was with attached bathroom and there was a small balcony which was cute. Very clean, awesome surrounding and very nice hostess. Wifi was also very strong. I would definitely return to Father's Guesthouse.

I got here on the basis of a traveller's advice and spent 3 nights here. The guesthouse is best located, 2 minutes walk from the village and very easy to find. The owner is really fantastic and will help whenever he can. The tours offered are really good and the guides will take you to some places you won't see with other tours.
Rooms are spacey, lot of common meeting places in and outside of the building, very clean. Excellent wifi!

Spacious, clean and convenient rooms. Excellent location. Very friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable staff.

The owner will give you tons of tips and info about trails and sights in the neighbourhood. He will even chase you into the bus when you accidently leave your solar glasses in the room after check out :-). True story!

Father's Guest House was the best place we stayed in during our trip in Malyasia. It is a gem!

Room Tip: Rooms with en suite bathroom are spacious and provide great value.

Having been to Cameron H several times over two decades this is probably the best place I have stayed. Stayed 4 nights. Most were nondescript and some horrendous. Anyway Father's is a great place although the road leading to it is under some construction and it is muddy and a little noisy at times but this should be completed soon. Gerard, the manager, is an excellent host and most helpful with tips and advice. The location is excellent in my opinion as I can get to many trails and restaurants quite easily. My wife already thinking of going back there again.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor as the smoking corner is right outside and could be a little noisier.
