“Very Clean, Very helpful”
Reviewed 16 February 2015

Just outside the town centre, the Wau offers spacious, spotless rooms and free shuttle to the bus station. They have a helpful in-house trip advisor with maps and relevant information for Taman Negara National Park, 1.5hrs away by local bus.
An Indian, a fish and a Chinese restaurant ( with cold beer, hard to find hereabouts!) are close by.
Breakfast is included, but consists only of coffee and toast.
The Kuala Lipis bus passes right by the hotel.
The owner is very helpful and speaks excellent English.
Recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the front subject to traffic and restaurant noise.

We loved our stay here as others have said Manian the night Manager is excellent at arranging your trip to Taman Negara no matter which way you want to go and bus tickets that were priced as per the bus company. The rooms are spotless including bathroom, the breakfast is a bit weak coffee/tea and toast however plenty of cheap restaurants in the same street. The owner is lovely and gives you a free ride to the bus station when we left in the morning, recommended though it would be nice to improve the breakfast.

Thumbs up for the service, cleanliness & location of the hotel. A good stopover before continuing the road trip up to Temerloh & Kuantan. Would stay again if back to Jerantut for the Taman Negara adventures.

Room Tip: 2nd floor should be good. Not too low & not too high

our room was spacious and clean, and the man who runs this place was nothing if not enthusiastic. He helped us so much to get transportation and information about Taman Negara, with no benefit for himself. Wifi was pretty weak in our room, unfortunately.

The cleanest hotel I have stayed in for a long time. Such a pleasure to have a spotlessly
clean room and bathroom. Very friendly and helpful man on reception (day/evening). Rooms
are basic but adequate, 1 English TV film channel, bottled water and toiletries.

The cafe is closed, but breakfast is provided - just toast. Free wi-fi. Parking outside.
Note the walk in rate is cheaper than booking online.
