          Pleasant Stay at a Strategically Located Hotel”

          Location, Friendliness of the Owner & Condition of the Hotel

          I am very happy with the choice of Shamrock Guest House for my short stay in Ipoh. Upon checking in, the owner's daughter, Miss Loke was already expecting us and she even helped with carrying our luggages to the room. When we asked for additional pillow and blanket, she happily obliged. The hotel is strategically located in the city centre where majority of the famous eateries are within walking distance from the hotel. There are also many restaurants around the hotel area which is very convenient. The owner, Mr Loke even came knocking on our door to inform us to park the car right in front of the hotel at night where a guard is around. If you are in Ipoh for a short stay without much time to enjoy facilities of those 4 or 5 stars hotel, Shamrock Guest House is a good choice given the good condition of the hotel and the friendliness of the owner.

          Good location, Clean and approachable Guest House in Ipoh”

          Last min. booked for business trip via Agoda but when check-in was told by the recipient the booking was linked to Booking.com. Thus, room rate pay at the property when check in. Anyway, 1st time stay in this Guest House in Ipoh. A corner shop lot converted to a guest house. A strictly NO smoking premises - agree & support. There's no 24hr front desk, (operating hr : 10:30am - 6:00pm, check-in 3pm-6pm) basically need to inform them your ETA else they will call you directly for your arrival time. The main entrance require access card to enter the guesthouse. just press door bell there will be staff attended to open door for you. Can express check out before recipient operating hour by dropping the room key at the post box provided. Pros : Location - walking distance to nearby food eatery, Fai Kee Fish Head Noodle, walk further up behide Excelsior hotel - Ipoh famous Fusan DimSum, walk to the other street - Famous Kaya Glutinous Rice, Curry Mee, nice Kopi-O too. Room - keys for room door & another small key inserted for room electricity - good practice for power saving. Small room but clean & comfort bed, tiny bathroom (can just take shower sitting on the toilet bowl but still ok, good water pressure) love the interior of the room, the storage compartment for luggage and closet for clothes, good design) though small but with basic facilities (hair dryer, in room safe box, mini bar, compliment 2 bottle mineral water, kettle, tea sachet, no indoor slipper). Cons: - No sound proof, the room no window but can hear noises from vehicle down the street. Conversation and coughing can be heard from next door. If a light sleeper better get prepare ear plug or else will be sleepless night as occasionally noises from the corridor can be disturbing (loud talking, small kids running, door slamming). Overall is a pleasant short stay in Shamrock Guest House. Perhaps the sound proof issue can be improve will definitely back here again as pretty much like the concept of

          My wife and I spent 5 nights at the Shamrock Guest House, whilst visiting Ipoh and the Cameron Highlands on a short break from Thailand. Our room, whilst small (but as described in hotel description) was spotlessly clean, with bathroom/shower, very quiet aircon and a small fridge. However, it was more than sufficient for our stay. Isabel, who runs the guest house, speaks excellent English, could not have been more helpful, staying up late for our delayed arrival, giving us advice on local transport and attractions (in at least one case her advice was 100% correct, although the town's tourist office had given us contradictory information, which turned out to be wrong. We would not hesitate to stay here again if we were to visit again..

          Convenient location, helpful receptionist, clean environment

          My friends and I were very satisfied with our stay at Shamrock Guest House. The family suite (2 full-sized beds) could definitely accommodate more than the two-persons maximum capacity listed. The guest house was conveniently located near to a number of the local attractions and eateries in Ipoh (some within walkable distance and others within 5-10 minutes' drive). The receptionist was also very polite and helpful. She provided a map and directions for nearby attractions, as well as a hairdryer upon request. Lastly, the room and bathroom was clean and comfortable.

          Location, cleanliness, comfort

          We drove to Ipoh and located the guest house using Waze. Check-in was swift and the rooms were clean and welcoming. ROOMS We booked a Deluxe family room that come with 2 queen size bed and we paid for an additional single bed for our family of 2 adults and 3 kids. We also booked a single room for our helper. Our room was facing the main road but had no noise issue while my helper's room was also tastefully done. I can see she was very pleased with her room. All rooms had bathroom attached with shower and wc (no bathtub). The bed was comfortable but not the pillows. LOCATION There was a 24hr convenient store around 3mins walk, right next to Excelsior Hotel. You can see Excelsior Hotel on your far right as you step out from the guest house. It was within walking distance to Loke Wooi Kee coffee shop for lunch of chee cheong fun with mushroom sauce, rose syrup with 7-up and ice cream, HorHee but the steamed chicken was tough. It was 4mins walk to Cowan Street ngar choy kai (bean sprout chicken) for dinner, 4mins walk to dim sum restaurants like Foh Sun, Ming Court and Yoke Fook Moon, we went to the later. Hong Kee egg tart was 3 mins drive away or 10mins walk. The price might be a little steep for a shop lot room and Malaysia standard but for the location and room condition, we think it is worth it.

          Comfortable stay. Will re-consider to stay in this hostel again in next trip to Ipoh. During my stay in this hostel, the restaurant upstairs is not open yet, feel regret to have no chance to try the food and enjoy the environment in this restaurant. The only disappointment, in the lobby, while trying to surf internet with the public computer. The computer is very old and slow. Air conditioner is not switched on, very hot and not comfortable in the lobby. The staff always not in the counter, we need to call the provided number to get the person in charge. Very limited rooms, hard to book for extra night in peak season. Should have more drinking water in the room. Water flow is very slow in the bath room.

          The patient owner waited for us till around 9pm for check-in. She even provided extra 4 pillows even though I requested for 1. The deluxe family room was clean, big and comfortable for my family of 2 adults and 3 kids (aged 8, 10 and 12). As the room was at the corner, there was some slight noise from the main road traffic and hotel pub across the road. Very near to recommended eateries and Ipoh Parade Shopping Mall, but we drove around regardless. Would love to come back again definitely.

          local knowledge guru makes shamrock a lucky find”

          The concierge Isobel is a gem. She has a lot of knowledge of the area and is happy to share. ipoh Is very much a town to access the wonderful delights of the Cameron highlands so I cant think of too many reasons to stay for a long time. But the Shamrock is clean and if a little space constrained and with no sound proofing does provide a good base particularly if you have a car.

          Centrally Located, Friendly Owner & Clean Room”

          Worth for Money, Clean & Centrally Located

          It is a new hotel in Ipoh Town, modern design, clean and comfort for stay. Even though we stayed in the standard room which is without the window however there is no odd/ mouldy odour discovered. Centrally located near to the famous local dimsum shops and it save us from wondering around for parking lot. We can easily reached there by walking of 8 minutes. We had late check in and the owner is great enough to wait us for the check in. Overall, it is worth for money paid.

          Highly recommended”

          Value for money. The hotel is looked after by helpful staff who're intuitive about your needs and quick with their responses. I stayed in one of the smaller rooms, which had a comfortable bed and decent amenities. The hotel is very near the train station and old Ipoh centre. Overall, I'd a pleasant stay. I felt safe and at home.

          Very clean room with cheap price. Located near to Ipoh attractions. Staffs are friendly, room facilities are well equipped. The only disadvantage is you have to find car parking slot yourself and it is always crowded with cars.

          Located at the center of Ipoh city, easy to access to everywhere. There's lot of parking space but need to put the parking coupon. Friendly staff, clean and nice room. Some noises from the outside pubs during night.
