We payed 75rm for a standard double room without window and were really happy with it. Clean (except from one cockroach in the bathroom), quiet, hot hot hot shower, hbo and good wifi. Jungle trails, food, fruitstall and beer right outside the door.

We had a terrible experience at Orchid Lodge and quickly switched gears to stay at Planters because when I'd walked by I saw that the lobby looked quite clean and welcoming. We were so relieved by the room, especially as the previous reviews were not good - perhaps they've upped their game here since the last reviews. We got a... More

Staying in room 202, paid RM220/night for Premium Double Room, the room is spacious, but too bad our room was exactly next to the main road which is super noisy at night, the first night I couldn't even sleep well. No air-cond, so please open the windows in the toilet for some air circulation otherwise you'll be "choked" at night.... More

Good location in central tanah rata but small room with no fridge or air con and the tv screen continually rolled and was fuzzy. No breakfast included. Nice basic room in a hotel with a lift but very over priced in comparison to other hotels.

Stayed there for one night and would never come back. Checked hotels in Tanah Rata and this one seemed to be ok so we did not even check the room before we paid. At the reception they have a notice that only 50% will be refunded if you are not happy with the room after you already paid. I guess... More

“Room 204 was great - the TV worked and so did the shower (you have to let it run a bit for it to get hot but it does get REALLY hot!). There was lots of room to unpack and the windows face a side street and not the main street so might be a bit quieter than other rooms.”
