“Good location& guesthouse”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 2 nights in this guesthouse. It's very comfortable & cosy. The room was a good size and comfortable. Only a 5 min walk to the town. Breakfast is basic- toast & tea/ coffee. Staff are really nice and helpful- they booked a tour for us (mossy forest tour is good) and our onward bus. If you book this place, make sure you do not use tripadvisor to book it and instead contact them on their website- the owner told us that people booking via tripadvisor are actually booking a different place with similar name!

We stayed in Gerads place for 2 nights, its really nice and kind of feels like a home. Its really clean and comfy. The hosts are very nice,they helped us booking tours and bus tickets and even drove us to the bus stop when we left. The breakfast is simple but good and the second morning we got some local breakfast as well as the normal one. The location is good its just a 5 min walk into town. We would definitely recommend this place. also for backpackers (as we are).

Very pleasant short stay at Gerard's Place. Best feature was the host Jay, who was really friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable, as were the communal areas. Only minor gripe was no hot water at the sink, but shower was ok. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed for 4 nights and felt very comfortable here. Jay, who runs it, couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly, giving us a lift to town in the rain, offering to dry our laundry, ensuring we had the best guide when she organized a birdwatching tour for us,arranging our onward transfer to Penang and helping us out with bird identification from her own extensive knowledge. Her son, Josh, has an extensive knowledge of British and European football that would put Alan Hansen to shame!

If you're looking for a friendly, homely base in Tanah Rata, then look no further than Gerard's Place.

Enough written already about the friendliness and the homey atmosphere of this clean and comfortable place. Fresh strawberries for breakfast, good tips on activities and the nicest people to chat with. Joshua knows an awful lot about football, Jane makes you feel at home right away, and her husband can tell you everything about issues ranging from Malaysian current affairs to preserving the Cameron Highlands. Great stay!

We stayed at Gerard's place towards the end of February and couldn't recommend it more to anyone who plans visiting Tana Rata. We were welcomed at the door by Jay, shown our room, local trails and were also told about the best places to eat. The accomodation was very clean comfortable and most of all, homely; great after traveling since June 2013.

To us, this felt very much like home and we had access to a shared balcony, kitchen and lounge room with only a few other people staying there as well. Jay was a great host, checking in with us every night, organising our onwards bus travel and even bringing us all cake one evening as her friend had baked one for her as a treat.

Enjoy your stay there and say hi to Jay for us,

Russ & Tash

Reviewed 2 March 2014

The quality of the B&B is good: good beds, clean rooms, sufficient space in the room and clean bathrooms. But we especially appreciated the service at Gerard's place. Jay was very kind and willing to help or advise, whether it concerned tours in Cameron Highlands, bars, restaurants or bus companies to any place in Malaysia.
Only drawback is that the B&B is located somewhat outside the city center of Tanah Rata, which requires a short walk of 5-10 minutes. This was not a big issue for us.
