Eight Mentigi Guesthouse
Ranked #6 of 29 Tanah Rata B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Quite near to the Tanah Rata bus station, located bit inside from the main road. The staff are helpful and nice. A bit overpriced for a RM 80 double bed with an attached bathroom tough, as there is no breakfast provide. Coffee/ tea available for RM 2, and self serviced.

When we arrived into Tanah Rata my girlfriend was feeling very ill from the windy bus journey and Eight Mengiti couldn't have done more to accommodate us. We were checked in quickly with an en-suite bathroom and they helped us to plan our time in the Cameron Highlands.
We found our room to be very clean and the hostel conveniently located for getting around Tanah Rata. The communal area with tea and coffee available was great for getting to meet other travellers. We went on a tour organised by the guest house which was a very good day. Arguably they tried to pack too much into one day, but the tea fields and the mossy forest were beautiful and our tour guide was very knowledgeable.

I stayed in the 6 bed dorm which was good for the cheap price. Main concern is that there is only 1 toilet/shower for 10 beds (rooms are ensuite). There is another 1 toilet/shower in the annexe but you have to go through the lobby and terrace.
Staff were friendly and helpful and there is a nice lounge with TV. When I stayed, there was particularly a good atmosphere among guests. They sell drinks for really correct price.

After reading the reviews, I am wondering if I was in the same place as I found it all pretty average and I am quite easily pleased.
At 80myr for a double room with ensuite compared to 50myr without ensuite the gap is too wide. Should have been 70myr. Our room was old and tired with an antiquated shower and damp on the Walls which are paper thin. All this is ok but noone seems to have mentioned it. Other guesthouses in the area provide free tea and coffee and a toaster with use of the fridge for less. Wifi is temperamental It's really more like a hostel, dorm prices are reasonable Staff are friendly and informative

This hotel is run by very warm-hearted personnell, which makes one feel like home. Rooms are comfortable, the hotel is big, with much space for sitting and reading, watching TV or enjoying oneself in the beautiful garden. The environment is quiet, although the city centre is only a 2-minute walk away. I would recommend this peaceful place to everybody!

We stayed here for 2 nights. Staff are excellent.Our son had a bout of diorrhea and the man at reception went out and bought drugs for us.Nice quiet spot and clean. No air con as it is quite cool...even cold according to my wife. Smith, the manager, is a lovely hospitable gentleman and extremely knowledgeable. Salaam satoo Malaysia.
