Really kind and friendly owners!”
Our family spent 3 days during Chinese new year. Its great choice to stay here. Cozy, nice place and really clean, look at all furnitures here you can feel how much effort the owner made. We have one daughter 4 year olds, the owner was really kind, she and her husband prepared kid toys, gift for her, told us about Malaca attractions (history, food and where to go). Location is very near sea food restaurants in 10 mins walking. It is a little far away from central but if you prefer quiet place like us, it is perfect. Finally, staying at driftwood guest house is more than our expectation, especially the kindness of the owner here.

A sweet cozy homestay value for money”
We had a 2 days 1 night stay in May and Sly's place. The room is better than shown in picture. It is a really sweet and comfy room with an attached bathroom which have all the basic amenities you need. May and Sly are both very friendly and they will recommend a few places of interest and good place to eat in Melaka. The house and the room are very clean, and they are very sweet to provide little stuff for guest such as drinking water, coffee and tea, towels, cottons and even panty liner which I find it very sweet. May even offered us the fresh heong peng and welcome drinks. Overall, this is definitely a good place to stay if you have a car to travel in Melaka, I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for affordable and yet comfortable place to stay in Melaka.

Probably the best guest house in Melaka”
We booked the Caribbean room for 1 night and decided to extend our stay when we reached Driftwood. For the 2nd night, we moved to the Suite, a larger (family) room, due to availability. Booth rooms were immaculately clean and well equip. Our hosts, Sylvester and May were wonderful and ever helpful. They suggested a couple of place to visit and dine. Overall, great experience. Highly recommended if you want to experience staying in Melaka outside the Jonker area.

熱情體貼”
我們到達目的地已經很晚了,老闆體貼地為我們準備了熱茶和自家製作的小熊點心,安排好房間後,他們還教我們到哪裡找吃的。房間乾淨整齊,服務也不錯,離開的那天能吃到老闆精心準備的早餐,好幸福喔!
