Hillview Inn
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Tanah Rata
Reviewed January 22, 2014

The rooms were ok, but pricy compared to the rest of malaysia. Understandable however, as Tanah Rata and Cameron Highlands is nothing like the rest of Malaysia. Service was decent, breakfast acceptable, the only real problem was the humidity and lack of air-condition, so the room was damp and very humid.

I've been here twice now and each time, I have enjoyed my stay. The breakfast is fairly decent to kick start the day. The staff are helpful and the rooms are clean, it is in a nice quiet location (just a shame that it is facing a building that has slowly been collapsing). It is a short walk from the town centre, where you can find some lovely food and a short bus ride to some strawberry picking farms, tea plantation and other tourist places.

I will defiantly be staying at the Hillview Inn again.

Easy to find, just behind the shops. We we're picked-up by their van as soon as we arrived at Tanah Rata terminal, so smooth. Our room has balcony which is a plus (all the rooms I believe) and ours has an ensuite bathroom. We notice that it takes like 10minute-interval to use the toilet bowl flash, to allow the water to up. Didn't bother checking if WIFI works in our room as I wasn't planning to be checking my phone anyway. We have the basic, no TV, that's all we need. Mr Velu, the owner, is so accomodating. On our check out, he assisted us to get our bus to KL pick us up from the inn itself instead of going to the terminal. Freesia terminal is less than 10minutes walk.

A simple, nice, tidy place to stay. Wasn't sold on the shower/toilet combination (wet toilet seats aren't fun to sit on) but that had to be my only complaint - a minor one at that.

The staff were helpful with organising activities and nice enough to dry our clothes and return them to us after we got soaked on a walk.

There was a little mix up with the payment (as we already thought we had paid) but it's a good place to stay if you don't mind a quiet/simple place for a couple of days.

We arrived at this inn last night with our tour group and were assigned Rm 11. The accommodation is basic, no frills, but very clean and functional. The ensuite bathroom is very small but works fine. The location is good - an easy walk to the town for restaurants and shops. The owner helped us procure a taxi with an English speaking driver. We wanted to see a tea plantation, go to a tea factory, see Jim Thompson's home, have English Tea. We were treated to a fabulous explanation of tea production as a bonus. I would recommend this inn to anyone wanting basic and clean accommodation and good location.

Room Tip: Rm 11 is nice if available - some road noise but bright, airy

Our last stay here was in March 2011. Since then the hotel has had new paint, carpets and bathrooms and now feels very fresh.

Family Room is large even with one queen size double and a regular double. Its big enough for two adults and two small kids and good value at 250RM a night.

There is Satellite TV in the room and free wi-fi.

The location is excellent being just a short walk from the main street in Tanah Rata.

There is a small cafe adjacent to the foyer and a beautiful garden in front of the building.

We had booked for only 1 night. when we reached we were offered a choice to check in the room at a supposedly new place right behind Hill view inn as we needed to check in couple of hours early at RM20 extra which I accepted. So I didnt exactly stayed at Hillview Inn. Location of the hotel is perfect, not far away at the same time at the quiet corner on a hill just behind the Tanha Rata bus terminal. We did have breakfast though at their cafe, also hired private cab or the tour. Owner seemed helpful, though few more smiles around would have been pleasant. Will certainly return purely for its location and price.
