Fathers Guesthouse: "The best place to stay in the Cameron Highlands" Malaysia Hotel Tip by mandybailey

Malaysia Hotels: 273 reviews and 288 photos

The great thing about this guesthouse is that they have a range of rooms - quite high standard, basic and dorms, so there's a room for every budget. We stayed in a dorm and it was comfortable. The shared bathrooms had hot water (although you have to wait a while for it to get started!!)
There's a really comfy lounging area with tables and sofas, the internet and tv and a range of DVD's. People tend to congregate there to watch films together, talk, play cards...
The staff here are really helpful and friendly and they'll give you plenty of useful information about what to do in the Cameron Highlands and about your next destination. There's no pressure to book one of their tours either - which was really nice!
There's also a restaurant area and you can make your own hot drinks in reception, where they also have freshly baked cakes!
This is definitely one of the top 3 places that I stayed in my time in Asia, I highly recommend it.

Unique Qualities: The views are nice, the atmosphere is amazing, the staff are topclass, location is's not often that you get all of those qualities in one guesthouse which is what makes this place unique!
