            Moderate Room but bad staying ”

            The room and all the facilities is acceptable. However, we cants even sleep until 3 in the midnight because the bar opposite the hotel is very noisy ! From 10something, the live band, singing sound and noisy chitchating sound can be listened vividly in the room until almost 4 in the midnight ! Moreover, i can accept the vehicles noise as the hotel is located at the main road. I really cannot accept as i pay for the hotel which the basic is to sleep overnight there. Somemore, the wifi unable to connect. And the staff did not reply or feedback to my complain.

            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

            They had upgraded my family room to the premium type. My wife was very satisfied with the quality of the premium family room, so did my kids. Location strategic and the water pressure was strong (maybe not many occupants that day). Overall, value for money.

            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..

            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.

            Actually this is the second time i stay in this guest house. The 1st time was during hari raya haji. The reception told me during public holiday there is no staff for room cleaning service, for this reason i accept because those staff are malay staffs. Then for the second time i stay, is normal date and not public holiday or weekend, it also did not provide room cleaning service. The room very dusty. No refill water bottle and shampoo and body wash. When i go down ask for body wash, the staff give me a soap. But i saw the cart there still got many bottles body wash. Can you imagine two ppl sharing a soap? Somemore there is no parking place for guest. We need to park at parking slot there and pay daily rm 4. The room is super tiny too.
