    Great stay!We stayed here for 3 nights and had an absolute blast! The owner is fantasitic, immediately on arrival he gave us heaps of ideas as to how to spend our time in Cameron Highlands, where we could eat etc. Nothing was too much to ask and he went out of his way to make sure we felt at home (and we did!). Room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Also has a nice outdoor area where you can sit and have a beer after a long day exploring. Would definitely stay again.

    Ensure electricity supply enough for customer, should set the place for smoker to smoke I/o let them smoke at public place, should upgrade the toilet, style to old, not suitable, wifi should not extra charge as tourists would not stay at guesthouse all day, other is ok

    Budget Home Atmosphere”

    8 Metingi Guesthouse is exceptionally clean and managed by Mr. Jacky. Its a walking distance from the bus stop and terminal in Tanah Rata town with nearby shops, affordable restaurants and a night market. It has a nice garden where u can enjoy your cofee /tea complimentary. Affordable rooms too . Cons: Only 1 socket inside the room/ and the water heater doesnt seem to function efficiently considering the cold temperature of cameon highlands. And u can get a great.night sleep because of running big rats inside the roof ceiling!

    Everything’s Good!”

    I love everything about it! Nothing is amiss. It’s super clean, there’s heater and everything. The facilities are there. The wifi is excellent. Although, if your concern is shared bathroom - then that is the only flaw. But as we’re there not during public holidays, we have the bathroom all to ourselves 😬

    Perfect location with a lovely common area and a big TV for chilling out. Free tea and (real) coffee 24hrs a day and a kitchen you can use. Tours are at face value so you can confidently book through them at the best price. Helpful staff for recommendations. Bathroom was a bit dated and rough around the edges but it was an en suite.

    Eight Mentigi Guest House”

    Lovely host. Quiet location just a short walk from the town centre. Large, spacious and clean rooms and lots of shared areas to use. Offered complimentary coffee in the morning. We felt the room was overpriced but this could be due to a national holiday weekend. Unfortunately we struggled to sleep due to the room being exceptionally cold (tiled floors, glass shutters rather than windows, outside door in our room, thin bed sheets), would highly recommend offering a heater or spare blankets. No hot water, it was freezing cold. Also found it slightly strange that on arrival, after going inside to check in, I found a staff member wandering around outside in my shoes.

    The staff were really helpful and they keep the place quite after 11pm. Pantry available for making coffee or tea, or to use the microwave. The room window's exactly facing the corridor especially the one near the reception desk. Not suitable for couple looking for a much more privacy in their room.

    Whole night disturb by mosquitoes”

    The location & price is affordable. The only downside was the windows was not properly closed. During sleep, we had been attacked by a lot of mosquitoes, where we couldn't sleep at all throughout the night. The owner should do something about this like putting in the repellent etc.

    Good for Backpackers but not for family”

    We stayed here for 2 nights. Even you are expats working in Malaysia, you still need to pay tourism tax which is RM 10 per night. The check out time as per agoda is 12 pm, however hotel check out time is 11 am. Very basic rooms but clean. They have a shuttle service from Tanah Rata bus station to the hotel but not back from the hotel to bus station. To avail the shuttle, you need to contact hotel staff as there are no fixed timings.
