    Wonderful retreat in the mountains”

    comfortable beds, near bus station, near local restaurants

    I was very satisfied with TJ Lodge. I was expecting a bunk bed type dorm room but instead they have 4 single beds in one large room. The beds were very comfortable and no air-con was necessary thanks to the cool weather of Cameron Highlands. The staff were also very friendly and gave honest assessments of the nearby attractions as well as suggestions for possible activities. The location in Tanah Rata is also convenient since this is the main hub of busses in Cameron Highlands.

    Recommended Nice Hotel”

    Nice environment, friendly staff, home concept

    This hotel is located at the town of Tanah Rata, the city center of Cameron Highlands. Grocery shops are available nearby. Food is everywhere. Very good location indeed. If you need to go around Cameron Highlands, ask for the tour guide downstairs. Hotel staff (especially the old Indian uncle as receptionist) is very friendly and welcoming. He even helped us to solve the electric socket problem immediately. At midnight, when we need extra bed matress, he helped us with smile. 5 star for his excellent service ! The rooms are very cozy, clean, simply nice to stay. There is even a balcony for our room. Really value for money. Wifi is working well and quite fast. There is free tea making area at the living room with sofa and tv and dvd player. Feeling like you are at home. Will recommend this hotel for everyone. You make our stay at Cameron Highlands very meaningful. Thank you.

    Location, friendliness of staff, pricing

    Stayed at TJ Lodge from 7th October to 10th October, and it was quite honestly one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. Pros: Room was very clean and looks new Toilet facilities were working perfectly fine Staff was friendly and willing to recommend must-visit locations/dining spots without promoting their own products Prime location - walking distance from everywhere in Tanah Rata Good price for value Cons: Walls were a little too thin, every little noise can easily be overheard by your neighbours at night Located above a bar, those looking for an early night might find sleep elusive (until after 11!)

    I spent 3 nights in TJ lodge with my friend (both ladies). Price is low and conditions are very good for that price. Clean, comfortable rooms, clean toilets and showers (hot), provided toilet paper and towels if needed. Helpful staff, very friendly and polite. Atmosphere reminds of mountain shelters which was exactly what I wanted to feel in Cameron Highlands. Good location - close to the bus station, jungle trails, shops and good food. Highly recommended!

    good value for budget hotel”

    I have stayed at this hotel several times in the past 20 years. Found out when I checked in that Wan the Indian owner sold the place at the end of 2016, and is no longer associated with TJ Lodge. A young Muslim couple are now operating the hotel in the same style and pricing, which I have always found to be the cheapest in Tanah Rata, and a good value.

    Our stay in TJ Lodge was extremely nice. We didnt expect much but when we came to Cameron Highlands and entered the hotel that was situated only 4 minutes walking from the bus station we were amazed! The stuff welcomed us with a huge smile, everything went pretty smooth, we paid the deposit of 50 RM and they gave us a nice and cozy room :) The bathroom was shared but at the same time it was extremelu clean and nice! We received towels too. There was a well functioning wi-fi, lirary, kitchen and TV room with DVDs comfortale couches. The room was not big but the beds were very comfortale and clean too. I would igly recommed this place!!! It was extremely cheap and had the best location ever :)

    atmosphere, comfort, kitchen

    I loved my stay at the TJ Lodge! You feel right at home whem you arrive there. It's quite big, but plenty of space is common area. There's a small kitchen with a fridge. There's no stove, but there's a toaster so you can prepare your own breakfast. One floor up there's a lounge area with couches, a TV and computer (which doesn't work too well). Small library available as well. So all very comfortable! Rooms are ok, although i did have bedbugs... Bathrooms are small but it does the job. Not always hot water though which is ashame cause it can be quite chilly in the cameron highlands. Location is fine. Tanah Rata is not very big so everything is nearby.

    TJ Lodge looks gloomy as you enter the staircase, just to find a welcoming home on the first floor. It has beautiful common rooms, showers with hot water and comfortable beds. The staff is always ready to help and advise you on the different things you can do around Tanah Rata. They also own a travel agency in case you need to book a bus or a tour.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at TJ Lodge. The staff were welcoming from the start. We were greeted with a room upgrade and helpful information about the local area. TJ Lodge was also a tour operator, and we had an excellent day trip with them. They also provided us with a minibus transfer to our next hostel in Penang at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed the homelike atmosphere, good wifi, free tea and coffee and that towels were provided. Just a note that the Lodge is above a bar, so there was some music noise, but not really disruptive.

    TJ lodge has great atmosphere, both the room where we stayed and the common area is lovely. it's great value for money, we were browsing for the cheapest accommodation and couldn't be happier :) we even had a balcony while most cheap rooms in malaysia come without windows! and while our view featured mainly cooking classes in the opposite building, the rooms slightly more expensive appeared to have a great view of the forest and hills. We also took a tour from TJ lodge and it was a great experience, our guide was knowledgable and fun and turned a trip that might have been just cold and rainy into a really cool experience that gave us a lot of information :)

    We were only here 2 nights but it was great. The room was big and had a private bathroom and a balcony. There's free tea and coffee 24hrs a day, a toaster in the kitchen, a kitchen, a library and a computer you can use to surf the net (also free). Really exceeded our expectations. The staff are really helpful too. If you're on a short stay like us you should definitely take one of the TJ tours. We did a half day (more like 3/4 really) tour and our guide, Mike, was great. Showed us all the best places and taught us a lot about the wildlife and tea, and you get the VIP tour of the butterfly farm which is much better than it sounds. The hotel is a little on the old side these days so there is some wear and tear around the edges, but I really can't recommend it highly enough. It's the best place to get around the Cameron Highlands.

    Location, cost, and comfort

    Brilliant budget hostel, provided everything I would want in a great location. Location was perfect just a five min walk from the main bus terminal. Room was clean and comfortable. Selection of communal areas to relax and meet people as well as free complementary tea and coffee 24hrs. The communal kitchenette could be a little more furnished (a micro wave would be a good edition for those on a very tight budget) but was perfectly manageable. Staff where great and helpful and the TJ empire offers everything Tom make your trip to cameron highlands. Only very slight criticism is that the entrance is a little confusing to find at first, you can't miss TJ,s tour and informations service but it isn't clear it is also the hostel main reception; it is!

    TJ Lodge was pretty good for the low price point. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm. Pros: central location in Tanah Rata (although the town is so small, it would be hard not to be!), towel included, free tea and coffee, clean rooms and bathrooms, actual hot shower, library for use, can book tours and transportation at the front desk Cons: owner smokes so the smell will drift into the rooms, regardless of what floor you are on, facility is a bit dingy and aged, weak wifi

    This is my first time stay at Cameron Highlands. Generally the stay in TJ Lodge was good. The room is nice and clean. Due to the cold weather, the tile floors in the hotel room is very cold. So I had to buy sandals for my family members as the hotel is only provide a pair of sandals. There was a little difficulty to park the vehicle due to the building's concept of shop lots. The number of parking is limited. Though, you still can park your car after nightfall. The location of the hotel is quite strategic due to the center of Tanah Rata Town. Dining area is just down at the corner, they even had the best steamboat dishes in Tanah Rata, as well as roti canai stall.

    Location, Clean, Valueable

    We stayed in a 4 beds room. When we arrived here it was about 10.15am and the host told me to wait about 30 minutes for the room to be cleaned and set up. In the mean while, he advised us many options to enjoy our stay (esp in the CNY as we arrived on the second day of CNY 2016 - Feb9). The host was friendly and gave us lots of information (also tours provided by them). He also lended us a kettle to cook instant noodles (with water we bought in the RM2.0 shop couple of blocks away) in the early morning we left for Penang. The check out was easy. Room is clean and we had enough room to put 4 luggages and some carry on bags on the floor. There are 3 bathrooms and 1 toilet. Turn on the heater if you want to take hot/warm shower. No toilettries and towels provides. Highly recommend for anyone who wanna stay in Tanah Rata town and near the bus station. If you want to go to Penang from here, the bus stop of Unitity Express is in front of TJ Lodge.
