Its my favorite hotel in Betong, Location is good and very relaxing place, do choose Deluxe Room, comfortable with all necessities. I goes there mostly for relaxation and photography as its still very much surrounded by greenery and forest. most important is a very safe place. Most of the places of interest are within the town except visiting former Communist villages, hot spring and the famous Wooden Guan Yin. From Kuala Lumpur, you may take a Bus from Pudu Central or at Jalan Duta. Daily 2 buses in the morning and late evening, traveling time is about 5 hrs for the morning coach and for the evening is about 4 hrs. Take note for those taking the evening coach arriving into Penkalan Hulu Station (Kroh) is around 3 - 3.15 am. The small station lights are switch off and toilet lock, just have to wait until about 6 plus am to take a cab that will bring you to the Betong Thai Immigration, the cost is RM12 per cab. Returning from Betong is RM25 per cab that bring you to the Malaysian Taxi waiting area. Going into Betong, prepare RM2 for filling the Immigration Card, RM2 for getting your passport stamp and returning back another RM2 for exit stamping of passport.

Room Tip: Choose Deluxe Room and above.

Been here for a night stay, the staff was friendly and the Deluxe room was superb! It is clean and it has all the necessities you need! So need not worry to bring your hair dryer or towel. And they're pretty clean too... With the price offered, totally worth it!

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe room for the nicer bathroom

Overall hotel & staffs was above average.
But one point I have to moments there was many Indians guests stayed at the standard room during the night they made very noisy and even drunken quarrel,they don't care about others guest feeling,really a nightmare if you stay in the same floor with them.

Hi Snake777,
Thank you very much for your valuable comment and feedback. We feel sorry about the noisy guests on the same floor during you stay. In cae of disturbing other guests, our night supervisor will inform and ask the guest to calm down & make quite. In many cases, we also move the guest to other floor when room available.
Thanks and wish you can stay with us again.
