“Clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

White Lodge is decent value for money, considering the price of other properties that are not as well maintained. The reviewers on here that state it is a 10 minute walk to the beach were clearly walking in zig-zags, as it is only a few minutes' stroll away. Ok, there is building work going on in front of the hotel, but you cannot hear it, nor does it impede your view from your chalet. We stayed here for 4 nights with our 2 year old and were very happy with our stay.

The room was a "u get what u paid for" room but this gets 2 stars because of the horrible attitude of the owner towards us when we were there. It was astounding how any hotel owner would treat his guests the way he did.

But first, an honest review of the hotel premises and the room. The hotel isn't easy very to find as u have to enter through a small road beside a a building under construction. Location was ok, since there r restaurants nearby; but while its address says Pantai Cenang, it is *not on the beach. To get to the beach : cross the road, and walk through the small paths between some of the motels/ restaurants and u'll see it. Not difficult to get to tho. We booked a room here because it was inexpensive and looked decent from the pictures. But the room we got was not the ones that are shown in the pictures here.. it had poor lighting and very little sunlight coming through the windows. The bathroom was new and clean but the shower (which did not have curtain or divider) was right beside the toilet paper holder so our toilet paper got drenched on our first night.

The bed was hard as marble and there was still water left by the previous guest in our water boiler. TV (as another reviewer mentioned) only had 4 or 5 channels and aired local programming most of the time.

As i've mentioned that the bed was hard as marble, we obviously did not get a good night's sleep. By the second night, the lack of sleep from the first night coupled by the day's activities and another night of poor sleep quality, we were exhausted. My partner went to the reception to complain to the owner abt the horrible bed quality and to our astonishment, the owner not only got defensive but confrontational. It soon boiled into an argument and then---the owner walks out from the behind the counter and stands chest to chest with my partner, staring at him in the eye the entire time---. WHO DOES THAT TO A CUSTOMER WHO WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT A FREAKISHLY HARD BED? He was smiling in a condescending and threatening way the entire time and saying "my hands are still behind me".

This was an incident that happened more than a year ago, but as u can tell, it is still very fresh in our minds and disgusting to say the least. We have travelled to many places all over the world and stayed in all kinds of hotels, both cheap and expensive and NEVER have we encountered an owner who would treat ANY customer the way he did. Absolutely HORRIBLE.

Room Tip: Stay in another hotel where they will treat you like u matter

This hotel is NOT on the beach. I was under the impression that it was either at the beach or close enough to get the sea breeze. Neither is the case. It is across the main street of Pantai Cenang, and behind the row of buildings facing the street. So, the walk to the beach from our room was at least 500mt, about a 15 min walk.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable, and it had hot water and wifi, and free water and a refill station at reception, and a fridge. The TV didn't have any English channels and poor reception. Breakfast is not included, which we prefer, as it allows us to have our fruit in the mornings.
The main thing we didn't like about it was the location, behind a construction site, and too far from the ocean. It did not get any sea breeze, and therefore was very hot, so to be comfortable you had to be inside the room with the air conditioning on. We prefer to sit out side in the evenings when we come home from a day out.

First of all, this is a cheap hotel so do not expect any luxury. That said the staff are very friendly and helpful. After a long day at the beach they arranged a shower for us to wash up before going home.
The entrance to the motel is very dodgy and it does not look very nice, however the garden where the rooms are placed are very nice and there is no noise from any bars or street.

Rooms were nice and clean, but very basic. We stayed 3 tall and big guys in one room (1 single + 1 double bed). Bathroom was ok, but nothing more than that.

The motel is very close to the beach and restaurants.

It is not a beach resort or luxury hotel. Breakfast is even not offered. Nonetheless, the hotel offers good location at reasonable room rate. It is very close to Pantai Cenang beach. 5-10 minutes walk. There are various restaurants and shops nearby. Underwater World is also very close. There is also a taxi stand. I find no difficulty in getting a taxi anytime. A clear price list is posted at the taxi stand. no need to worry about cheating. The room is big enough for two persons although it is little bit outdated.

I would not recommend this motel although it is cheap. I stayed on 8th May to 11th May 14 and was shocked to find a scorpion (abt 2.5 to 3 inches long) on the bed.

The bed was in a poor condition which I had can feel the spring of the mattress.

Do note that the front desk only work from 8am to 10pm thereafter no one will attn to you. And I do not see any security patrolling as well.

But the front desk staff were friendly.

This hotel isn't expensive, so keep that in mind when booking. It's a good hotel in its price range. Keep in mind that the standard on Langkawi is lower than the rest of Malaysia. The location is good and the rooms are clean. The thing that bothered us were the towels that smelled clean, but looked dirty.
