Do not come here if you can't control your behaviour or your families. Check in and check out procedure are super easy. At the room rates they offered, this guesthouse is the best staying i ever had around Tanah Rata. Entire premise are so clean and cozy. I like how they prepared several outdoor sitting places, you get to embodied serenity of Cameron fresh air. Coffee, tea, hot water are unlimited at ground floor pantry. Free WIFI too. Please check with them before staying and complaining no cooking could be done. Some room gets private toilet, some uses shared ones. If you use shared one, please be clean and respect cleanliness. Tucked quietly within Jalan Mentigi, 3minute walk from Cameron Fair mall, i would prefer this type of staying anytime over main street. It is just too busy and noisy out there beating the purpose of coming over Cameron Highland. Parking lot could be limited, i do not recommend big group driving in convoy style. Instead, do car pooling. If you know Cameron traffic load on typical weekend/long weekend, driving out anywhere is a nightmare. Hence, walking out for food, other attraction is just nice from this spot. Personally, i even walked to Brinchang from Tanah Rata so i could enjoy more of the climate. The only upsetting matter during my stay are the absolute inconsiderate nuisances from other guests. The premise indoor is absolutely NO SMOKING entirely yet i find all of them manage to cause all the below issue: -Kid shouting loud before 7am and after 10pm -Smoking cigarette inside -Closing door loudly -Talking loud at night after 11pm There was even a kid shouting for parent/uncle from ground floor to 2nd floor after 12am that did not stop after i telling the kid to keep quiet. That was ridiculous. I don't wish to be racist, but ALL the above were only cause from one specific race. Will not mention here. Please learn to respect other guests, place is an amazing place to stay. The staff will not have people 24/7 around to teach you basic respect around the premise. As i mentioned earlier, the best staying in Tanah Rata i ever had.

Very nice budget hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is great: Close to the main road, yet in a quiet spot at the edge of town. Rooms are basic, but comfortable. Nice common area outside to chill or work.

My family and I have stayed in Father's Guest House three times and each time our stay is better than the last. The place is spotlessly clean, comfortable, conveniently located and now has a kitchen where you can prepare your own breakfasts. You can also enjoy free coffee and tea as well as buy a cold beer or two from reception. A big thank you to Gerrard and Gabriel for making our stay a really good one.

The room is basic but clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful to book a trip or transportation tickets. The location is good and breakfast served next door but was not included in the room price. I would recommend this place.

Father's Guest House has a more tempered down hostel kind of vibe to it. You can get rooms with private bathrooms if that's what suits you better. The room was clean, neat, and made up every morning with fresh towels. The staff there are truly wonderful and can give you advice on all sorts of things, from which trails to hike to what the traffic will be like to what you should see. We also booked a tour through the guest house and our tour guide, Raju, had so much knowledge to share! He drove very safely (which was important given the road that leads up to the Mossy Forest) and was very friendly too. I would highly recommend to book a tour through the Guest House while you are staying there. The location is also great with it being a 3 minute walk to most of the shops and restaurants that are centrally located in Tanah Rata. Overall a wonderful stay and I will definitely be staying here again next time I visit the Cameron Highlands.
