Was greeted, if that's the word for it, by a highly disinterested and brusque woman ( the owners wife?) who radiated exactly no warmth or charm. Which was better than later on when she graduated to downright rude...we smiled and said Good Evening and she totally blanked us. Nice!  Taken to our room which featured a broken window patched up...

Stayed a night while on my way to Penang. Owner & staff are polite. Room & bathroom are clean. Location wise as I'm a drinker, just walking distance to the infamous Travellers Pub ( one & only pub here) that my favourite spot every time I came here. Very convenient as close to shops. All within walking distance. Price wise... More

Basic, clean, has all you need - hot water, wifi, central and easy access to town. Hotel organizes tours to main sights. English of staff on duty is variable, but owners are nice and friendly and give helpful tips. Has more the feel of a hostel than a hotel

We ended up staying at this place for about 5 nights, and we had one of the very basic rooms. It had a private toilet and shower, but it was down the hallway. These rooms don't seem to be online, so best to just turn up. The house looks beautiful from the outside, and the inside is nice too. A... More

The room was quite chilly and small. Very small bathroom with hot water. Only one electric socket. Towels and small soap bars provided, no tooth rush or toothpaste. No TV, just a basic room. We got a double bed room on the ground floor for rm170 through booking on agoda. The premises look very pleasant in the morning. Nice garden... More

Stayed in this property with my family. Had a wonderful stay and best part is the park in front of the Hotel to chill out :) This place is close by to all must visit locations like Boh Tea plantations and factory, Valley view.

We were very happy at the Hillview Inn. It's location is perfect, just a little out of the hustle and bustle of the main street but close enough to walk to the local Market and places to eat. The inn is not a big hotel but quaint and very clean and the staff quick to change towels and make the... More

No hillview for us, had a room in the basement gallery (which is carefully decorated with nice white flowers). Apart from that an excellent hotel. It's a nice old building and our room was simple, but just what you need. Staf is friendly and informative. There’s a tv-room and a little restaurant area for breakfast (and lunch if you like),...

Wrong direction given for qiblat(the opposite side)..need to check all rooms by motel management. Bathroom without pipe and slow water pressure. Have to leave your shoes at entrance/downstairs for the purpose of cleanliness. Parking is very limited and not suitable for family gathering/convoy with friends.
