Very nice budget hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is great: Close to the main road, yet in a quiet spot at the edge of town. Rooms are basic, but comfortable. Nice common area outside to chill or work.

My family and I have stayed in Father's Guest House three times and each time our stay is better than the last. The place is spotlessly clean, comfortable, conveniently located and now has a kitchen where you can prepare your own breakfasts. You can also enjoy free coffee and tea as well as buy a cold beer or two from reception. A big thank you to Gerrard and Gabriel for making our stay a really good one.

The room is basic but clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful to book a trip or transportation tickets. The location is good and breakfast served next door but was not included in the room price. I would recommend this place.

Father's Guest House has a more tempered down hostel kind of vibe to it. You can get rooms with private bathrooms if that's what suits you better. The room was clean, neat, and made up every morning with fresh towels. The staff there are truly wonderful and can give you advice on all sorts of things, from which trails to hike to what the traffic will be like to what you should see. We also booked a tour through the guest house and our tour guide, Raju, had so much knowledge to share! He drove very safely (which was important given the road that leads up to the Mossy Forest) and was very friendly too. I would highly recommend to book a tour through the Guest House while you are staying there. The location is also great with it being a 3 minute walk to most of the shops and restaurants that are centrally located in Tanah Rata. Overall a wonderful stay and I will definitely be staying here again next time I visit the Cameron Highlands.
