Wau Hotel & Cafe
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Jerantut
Reviewed 25 December 2016

We are a family of 3 and stayed at Wau Hotel for 3 nights from the 16 to the 19 of Dec.Came across this hotel after reading rave reviews from many who stayed there.

We had initially planned to stay at Mutiara resort in Taman Negara but decided to give this hotel a try as it was way cheaper and since it was outside Taman Negara it allowed us the freedom to explore other attractions in the vicinity and not being "stuck" inside a resort.

We have Never stayed in budget hotels before but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived.We got a triple sharing room upstairs.Compared to the suites in big hotels we usually stay.The room at Wau Hotel was small but clean and tidy.Furnishing was spartan and lacked shelving space.Beds were decent but found the pillows to be toooo soft.Free wifi,AC and water heater was working and the place looked quite new and well kept.

But what impressed us the Most was the staff,an elderly gentleman Mr.Maniam.Who spoke good English an had an intimate knowledge of not just Jerantut but also other neighbouring areas as well.He arranged everything and took us to anywhere we wanted to go.Took us to and fro from Taman Negara ,Jerantut waterfalls,Gelanggi caves and some other places that most tourists would not have known about.He even took us into town for all our meals and shopping too.

If there's one thing that makes Wau hotel the best hotel in Jerantut,it's because of Mr.Maniam,Thank you for making this trip a very memorable and pleasant one Mr.Maniam sir!

Room Tip: The triple sharing rooms are upstairs and have no windows.The stairway is long and not for those wit...

A good clean no frills overnight stop before heading into Taman Negara. Two shops close by.. one a mini mart with everything imaginable.. the other an Indian street cafe with great food.
Manian is a font of knowledge in relation to arrangements for the final leg to the Park.
We left before the breakfast so can't comment on that.
It is a bit of a walk from the bus station however easy to find.
Would recommend this hotel.

Wau Hotel is an excellent place to spend a night in Jerantut and the region. Very clean, very helpful and attentive staff and management. The manager gave us copies of maps of the town and sat down with us and gave us detailed tips on how to maneuver in Jerantut and for our next destination (and the return) from Taman Negara. He stayed late and got up early to arrange bus transport to the park from Jerantut. Gave us somewhat dubious advice about the Indian cafe next door, but also showed us where other eateries are located in town.

Room Tip: We reserved the large room with street view. Very nice.

Wau hotel is an ideal place to stay in before tackling Taman Negara. Although it's on the main road it's extremely quiet. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful especially Maniam. We didn't have to visit NKS office to check their activities and tours, Maniam gave us all the information. He also booked the transport to the National Park for us and our bus ticket to KL. Thanks a million for your help Maniam.

The only reason we booked a 1 night stay at the Wau Hotel was because we had travelled from the Perhentian Islands and had planned on getting the 9am boat to Kuala Tahan (but it stopped running in January the boat only goes at 2pm,so we ended up getting a minivan in the morning to take us and got the boat back). We emailed the hotel before arriving asking about the 9 am boat and they forgot to mention it only saying they could help us once we arrived and not to worry. I guess that's the only way to get people to stay as there is nothing to see or do in Jerantut. So upon hearing this we felt a little deceived as we could of stayed on the bus all the way to Kuala Tahan and not needed to stay in Jerantut at all.
The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was poor 2 slices of toast and tea or coffee. There is an old Indian man Mr Manion ( not sure if I have spelt it right) who does his best to help any way he can. Not sure if he actually works there or just helps out as the reception staff spoke very little English.
