White Lodge Motel

Reviewed 6 July 2011

Maybe i expect more from this motel. Anyway, it's cheap compared to other hotels. Maybe this is what i can get with the price.
Although it's near to the beach, personally i think if you want the one really on the beach, maybe you can try AB motel or Malibest. But i don't try AB motel and malibest yet, so can't compared for the moment.
It's raining season for the moment. So coincidently there was a thunder striking the morning we reached. No wi-fi for the three-day staying.
I think they could provide more towels, as there would be sands on the floor especially after the first day.

Loved this place. Set back on the opposite side of the road from the beach if is extremely quiet, rooms are clean and spacious. Free wifi - only rooms closest to reception will get to use Internet in their rooms, air con, tv, daily maid service. Great value for money and five mind from the beach. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

I have put "excellent" because I think this hotel needs a better ranking.
1st time I went there, I was not expecting much. But the rooms are very clean, nice, super quiet. It is almost the last hotel on the road. You can reach the beach in 10 min walking.
Ask for the newest chalets. They are the same price but TV, aircon and bathroom are nicer.
Staff is discreet but very nice. I have been there 3 times and I will probably go back there.
So if you don't want to splurge and if you want to avoid backpackers, this is definitely your best option.
Only drawback: rubbish in the street nearby, it stinks and looks bad !!!

Booking: the hotel can be booked through calling the owner (adie) just google white lodge motel, you will be able to find but reservations has to accompanied by a deposit which will make you difficult to change the hotel once you have booked it.

Check in: We called in advance to ask for early check ins, But the owner said they do not have rooms. we reached the island in the morning, but it was still ok coz we decided to have lunch first. We check-in at 2.30pm. Was fast & no long que watsoever.

The rooms: Large enough to fit 5 persons.(We booked Studio room). 2 queen bed, 1 tv(Dont bother watching , signal was never clear) 1 coffee table w. 2 chairs & a not so convenient wardrobe. The toilet was very clean indeed! Flush are all in good condition. Overall the hotel is kept clean always.

The Place: 1.Not at or near beach at all. If you are walking to beach i guess it will take more than 5-10mins. Advisable to rent a bike or car if you want to stay here. 2.Parking spaces are very very limited, can accommodate about 4-6 cars only. Road in was very narrow making it difficult to bring in my Mitsubishi Grandis.

Services: There is nothing much to expect as it is a budget motel, but you can request for it. Anyway , we requested for room service cleaning at 2pm, but receptionist replied they do not provide room service once the cleaners left.

The Pros:
- Quite location / Less people
-Large Clean Rooms /clean toilets / gardens
- Cheap rates (RM158 Studio room)
- Good for couples to have some private time

The Cons:
- Limited parking / Narrow road in
- Poor quality of Pillows / poor extra bed / Poor torn towel
- Poor Air conditioning / TV signal poor /Coffee only for 2 whn the room is for 4

*As an honest review, i found that this hotel is a very quite hotel, ideal for peaceful gateaway for couples & families. As for friends it wont be very convinient as we party all night long. And having a restriction of "No party hotel" made us party at "Grand Beach Resort"

If i am coming back to Langkawi with my Friends ill definate will NOT take this motel, instead ill opt for beachside beach. But with family, i guess this will be my choice.

Worth yourstay if you are not a WILD party people like me ..lol.

check in was a breeze n done with a smile.........rooms were big with a writing table and a couple of chairs with a coffee table....outside porch had a couple of chairs n a table....the aircon was of a small capacity compared to the room so it quite ,never cooled the room enough ....wud suggest that they get bigger capacity aircons.....the bathroom was small and old fashioned with a very flimsy door ....it definitely needed a refurbishing.......lighting in the room needed to be upgraded too....though they have a wifi zone near the reception , it worked quite well in my room.......reception staff was nice n very helpful.......the hotel was tucked away in a small bylane a few meters away from the underwater world.......though safe ...was a bit creepy walkin down the road at night....the reception shuts at 10pm......10min walk from the tengah n abt 12 min walk from the cenang beach.......hirin a bike cuts down on the walkin......if u head down to kuah on the bike make sure u use the airport - kuah highway....theres another road past tengah/aseania resort which is very secluded and has been suggested to be avoided in the evening ,but it is scenic route ....the staff were friendly and helpful .....all in all a decent value for money motel but a bit away from the action......if u need peace n qiute this is the place otherwise you need to move further down the road towards cenang

Room Tip: rooms near reception have wifi access in the room

It was a short escape from the cold Shanghai weather, 4 days of sun and beach fun in Langkawi.
We (2 couples) weren't planning to spend much time in the room, so opted for a budget hotel without much pretensions. We chose The White Lodge based on Tripadvisor recommendations booked via Agoda. It turned out to be much nicer than the photos and for the price paid. Basically all the rooms are semi-detached little houses with a small veranda and functional bathroom with individual water heater, each room has a fridge, TV, aircon and coffee making kettle. It's simply yet pleasantly furnished in warm tones with a local touch, clean.
One thing you should know when booking is that there's virtually no service in the hotel, no F&B, reception desk closes around 21h and nighttime there's no one you can call should you need (which we didn't). They can however help you with tours and activities but prices are higher than average.
The hotel is some 7 minutes walk from Tengah beach and around 10 minutes from Cenang, there are shops within a few minutes too. 20 ringgit and 15-20 minutes by taxi from the airport.
I can easily recommend The White Lodge to anyone not willing to spend too much on the room and would return if going back to Langkawi with friends.

Basically, as it was a motel we did not expect much however we were pleasantly surprised. Firstly the beds provided were clean and big, a king sized and single bed and the rooms itself were pretty spacious, with all the essentials of aircon and fridge and tv. Initially there was a disgusting toilet smell wafting from the toilet but after opening the window in the toilet the smellw was greatly reduced and we could lock the door so it was fine as well.

The location was a bit further from the beach about a 5 to 10 minutes walk, but it wasn't very far anyway so that was fine. The room was tidied and cleaned everyday and I was quite impressed by the level of cleanliness displayed by the motel and overall The White Lodge made my stay in Langkawi much more pleasant. Definitely value for money, and a great palce to stay. :):)
