“I'm not keen to return to this hotel”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Stayed in a Superior Room (Queen Size Bed with Window). The room is very small and the bathroom partition is very near to the bed. The bathroom partition is not fully covered up to the ceiling, therefore if you do 'big business' in there, the whole room may smell. The Bathroom is not clean and you can see black spots on the bathroom wall tiles. Bathroom door lock is not properly installed and therefore, cannot be closed properly or lock at all. Only 3 TV channels (Malay Astro Channel, TV 1 & TV2).
Wifi connection is ok, Reception Staff is friendly. Hot shower functioning well. Air-cond in room ok.

Room Tip: We choose the room facing the back since we read review rooms facing main road are noisy.

The staff, an assortment of young men, were not very interested in anything. Cleaning left a bit to be desired, the sink was very grubby, and there were many cobwebs that a quick flick with the feather duster would have removed.
Breakfast with its blue rice was ok, but I couldn't face it two days in a row.
The room was tiny, as was the bathroom. The tv only had 3 channels one of which seemed to be controlled by the boys downstairs, so just getting into a film.....
It was midway between the bus and railway stations and closer to the old town which was very pleasant. All in all,not bad, but I wouldn't rush back there!

Booked a superior room with window for 2 nights. The room assigned located at the back so less noise as many customer commented but to be honest, any hotel around here will face d same prob, it's d main road to East Coast full with lorries so what do u expect?

Bfast is provided to my surprise! Free wifi. Walk-in or phone booking shld b cheaper. Hot water, air-cond working well, just d China Brand LCD TV wif limited local channel.

Worth d stay.

Reasonably good budget hotel in Gua Musang. Out of the main street, sign a little hard to see. Right on the main road and is quite noisy, we had a room at the front of the hotel. Small room, Flat screen TV, hot water for coffee downstairs. Breakfast in the morning was Nasi Lemak, was hoping for toast as there was a toaster, but no toast. The next morning we were offered blue rice and fish, couldn't eat it. The room was cheap enough and you get what you pay for. Booked thru Agoda and could have gotten the room cheaper if we'd come in off the street, so I wasn't happy about that.

Gua Musang town will be reached after the approx 140km long drive mountain road from Tapah going into Cameron Highlands. This hotel is easy to be found as Gua Musang is a small town right next to a 7-Eleven. (Even though there are tons of 7-Elevens here). It is also right outside a local burger stall and within distance to a school. Service is very minimal. We had a twin sharing room (very tiny) and barely fit 2 backpacker bags. Luckily shower is hot and air conditioning was functioning. Breakfast is served only from 7am onwards so we had to give it a miss but looks to be a combination of bread and jam. Well, you get what you pay for, as this is more like a hostel than a hotel but for its price of RM110 for twin sharing, is just about appropriate.

Please have low expectations and basically treat this as a stopover on your journey to Kelantan or Terengganu,

We stayed at My Home for one night on our way through Gua Musang to catch the jungle train down to Singapore. The hotel is certainly an eye-catching place, with its bright red exterior it's hard to miss. Unfortunately the red theme is continued on into the bedrooms, where it doesn't contribute to the most relaxing of environments. Our bedroom was at the front, which faces the main road. If you're a light sleeper then you'll definitely need earplugs here.

The bathroom is a bit odd as the drain is located at the opposite end to the shower meaning that the whole of the floor around the toilet and the sink is wet most of the time. The shower itself is okay, with hot water. The room had a TV, but there was no remote so we were forced to use the frustratingly complicated button configurations on the front of the set. There was a lot of noise coming from the reception area as we tried to sleep as friends of the staff seem to pop round for impromptu parties. Again, earplugs are a must.

In the morning we needed to print out some tickets for our train but despite the hotel having two printers, we were told that neither of them were working. There was no remedy offered for our printing problem. We ordered a taxi to the station which arrived late. The price quoted was 12 ringgits for a two minute ride. We negotiated this down to 10 ringgits but still felt ripped off. The receptionist said that the price was higher as the taxi was ordered rather than hailed from the street, but we weren't told this beforehand. In fact, the 'taxi' wasn't really a taxi at all. It was a beat-up old car that was driven by the receptionist's mate we reckon.

Overall not a terrible stay - we actually had a good night's sleep - but there are quite a few areas where this hotel needs to improve its service

Room Tip: There's free wifi which looks like it should be available in most rooms. However go for a room a...

I reached the hotel at about 7pm after driving from KL. The hotel is located next to the main road and easily seen with its bright red signboard.
The staff is courteous and the check in was fast. They use proper digital key for safety. Unfortunately the twin sharing room provided is too small.
The bathroom is at the end of the bed and there is a convertible desk at the corner of the room.
I may not go to this hotel or may be will request different type of room.
