The Driftwood Lodge Hotel.
My family and I consisting of 5 person went down to Malacca for a night’s stay. We were introduced by a friend to try Driftwood Lodge. We booked the suite room, which sleeps 6 comfortably.
The accommodation is a short distance away from town center and for those who intent to stay its best to have your own transportation.
Upon arrival were greeted by the lodge owner and his wife. They were friendly and informative when asked whereabouts good meals and best sites are found. After exchanging some casual conversation we were brought to see our rooms.
The rooms were well decorated and very tidy. It reflect a sense of warmness, unlike times when I booked into other accommodations. I was then told that the owners did all the decorating themselves. Bravo!
The suite room had all the basic amenities i.e. Wi-Fi, TV, room fridge, washing sink, coffee and tea complimentary, cutlery for your takeaway meals (no cooking), a dining table for 4 person, great shower and bathroom. The room is divided into two levels. The bottom level is furnished with two double-sofa beds and the upper level has two single beds. All rooms were with air-conditioning.
There is also a K3K restaurant (similar to an up-scale-coffee house) nearby, thus should you be hungry for a late night supper it’s with walking distance (5 min max).
If you like a quiet and relaxing place to stay. If you're into enjoying an evening with family members or a group of friends. I suggest you give DRIFTWOOD LODGE a try.
