“Moldy Room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2017

I'm staying there on 9th Feb. The room is full of moldy smell, i even found black mold spots on the bed sheet. I'm trying to keep the windows open for fresh air to come in, but it is too cold to do so the whole time.
The hot water for bath isn't hot enough, it is just slightly warm. Also, the water pressure for toilet is a bit weak, there is always tissue not flushed inside. Good thing is you rarely need to queue for bathroom, since there are only 3 rooms sharing one bathroom.
There is no drinking water supply, so you have to pay RM2 per bottle of drinking water, or you can cook the tape water.
The room is very noisy at day time, but luckily night time it is quiet. So having a good night sleep is not an issue.

After very warm welcome with many useful information,we have been accomodated in a very nice room. There is lovely shared space and garden,where you can sit, have a cup od tea/coffee and speak to the others. Gerard and Jay are asking how was our day, what are our further plans and give us their opinion. This is much appreciated and after a long time I really feel somewhere so welcomed Moreover the location is really great.

Booked a double ensuite room. Nice clean room and comfy bed, unfortunately the shower was a bit tricky, had to run water very slowly to get it warm, any higher pressure and it went cold.
Good quiet location with nice outside space. 10 min walk into town for restaurants.
Very helpful in booking tours (Mossy forest) and guidance on walking. Hired a really nice scooter from Fathers Guesthouse, run by the same family.
Jay is an excellent host and her son Josh helps to run the guesthouse.
We had a relaxing stay, and would recommend.

The room, shared bathroom and living room was clean and pleasant to use. This place definitely exceeded my expectations, for a very affordable price! Tea and coffee are also free flow for all guests. What I loved most was the location of the place - it's in a quiet location just a short walk from the main street in Tanah Rata.

Comfortable, Super nice place in Cameron Highlands. It was clean, quiet and so very relaxing. Jay, the host, was super nice and both her and her son provided us with plenty of accommodations and assistance!
