Overall this hotel provide very basic need with high price. Indeed.

Pros
* Near to almost shop and food stall, bank and more including State council
*Free wifi
*easy parking
*Good signal phone for most carrier
*Quite cool
*Flat screen tv. so you can bring ps3 or xbox

Cons
*NOISY AND not soundproof window. So expect loud cars noise bypass and others
*No FAN so your room especially facing window are stuffy. You can smell your fart when you fart.
*No telephone, coffee maker and only 1 power socket. Please bring.
*their staff look sleepless. he he he.
*Pricey compare to other major hotel nearby.

However Its quite nice place to stay

Room Tip: Please dont request room near main road. Noisy. bring extension plug

Stayed there for one night and would never come back. Checked hotels in Tanah Rata and this one seemed to be ok so we did not even check the room before we paid. At the reception they have a notice that only 50% will be refunded if you are not happy with the room after you already paid. I guess I know why now. The room would be ok if the outside wall was not all moldy. I mean the whole wall was blue and the smell in the room was terrible. From what I could understand the receptionist (was very hard to understand him anything he was saying), this was the only room they had free so we had no choice but stay there for the night. Next night we went to Hillview Inn.

Staff are the same ones from morning till night looking very tired n worn out. Manager or the owner talking very loudly at lobby area ignoring guest shows no respect for paying guest. Keep screaming on top of her voice calling for the staff when the poor receptionist are busy with checking us.

Room were clean but the toilet looks like never been washed as if someone has used before. Wifi was working in our room. Good hot shower. The owner should look at taking care of the staffs as well making money. Really poor management.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from main road for quiet sleep ins.

Very centrally located which means you can easily walk to anywhere in the friendly city of Tanah Rata. The big drawback is the traffic noise from the street, especially since one of our bedroom windows did not close properly. Showers were great (good pressure and very hot water), rooms clean and beds warm and comfortable. Price expensive though, which does not include breakfast. Wifi access in lobby only, not inside room.

Good points of this place:

Easy parking-ample public parking close by.
Atm, shops and amenities are within short walking distance.
Toiletries were provided
Huge room and king size bed (we stayed at the premium room)
Modern decor

Negative points:
No coffee and tea facilities in our room (we were expecting them with the price we paid)
Very dissapointing breakfast ( wasnt expecting much but there were only fried mee hoon and kuey teow)
Stained bedsheets- yellow spots (mind you we paid for the premium room).
Grainy bed covers- there were sand like particles.

Overall, i might stay here again if there were discounts. I have such mixed feelings about this hotel but i would still recommend the premium room.

We stayed at Planter's Inn while on holiday in the Cameron Highlands. Upon check-in, the female receptionist was friendly and informative. We entered our room briefly that afternoon to drop off our baggage and quickly left to explore the town for what was left of that day. When we returned to the hotel around 11pm, we were in for a bit of a shock. The room was ice cold in the evening (no heater available) and tiny bugs (looked like large ants with wings) had infested the room. We cleaned up the room and climbed into bed. After laying in bed for about 5 minutes, my skin felt itchy. I turned on the lights and inspected the bedsheets. The sheets had all sorts of (seemingly new and not set-in) stains on them, and the feeling of grime was present. After inspection, we were fairly sure these sheets had not been washed in quite some time. We complained to the front desk and asked the staff member working to replace the sheets with clean ones. He did so grudgingly, but made sure to let us know how bothersome we were. He neglected to also change the pillow cases, and when I asked him to do so, he sighed audibly and stomped out of the room, later returning with new pillowcases. We would not recommend staying at this hotel - if even the dirty bedsheets were an oversight, the room itself was overpriced and night staff was unbearably rude.

Room Tip: Ask to inspect the room first - check that the sheets have been cleaned, are free of bed bugs and no...
