Pros: beautiful place, relaxing, quite, nice warm pool with sunset view... Such an antique place... Unique houses that represent malaysia, my room was huge with 2 wooden tub..

Cons: the aircond does not work well, a bit warm at nite, too quite and too dark at nite, when i want to rent video, i have to walk 5mins to bon ton and the road was quite dark.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with family

I loved this place! We were staying there for only one night and it was perfect for that. The atmosphere is surprisingly laid back and relaxed, even in the excellent restaurant. The houses are amazing, the pool looks stunning in the beautiful garden. The dogs in the neighboring Bon Ton can be noisy at night and the location away from the beach might not be what everybody is looking for.
I would definitely recommend this to anybody for a shortish stay.

I booked a room in the Colonial House as a surprise present for my boyfriend's birthday. We're travelling South East Asia on a shoestring budget but wanted to do something special for my boyfriend's birthday. Before we'd even arrived the manager James said he'd decorate the bedroom even though I had no clue what I wanted it to look like and it looked gorgeous!
Furthermore we had dinner in the Bon Ton restaurant on my boyfriend's birthday and they brought us a lovely surprise chocolate cake! Therefore everyone at Temple Tree and Bon Ton went really out of their way to make a real effort and my boyfriend had the best birthday. The place was perfect especially because he loves cats so much!
Furthermore the room was to die for, with beautiful traditional decor and the grounds were lovely too. We loved the pool especially because it was always so quiet!
We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone there for making sure we had an amazing holiday and we hope to see you soon!

Absolutely delightful. Not what one would expect though... All the cottages are reconstructed traditional houses bought and transported here - hence no standardization of the rooms. But what an experience! We thoroughly enjoyed the unique houses...
Yes it can be unsettling initially since it isn't what one would expect, but gradually one settles in to the charm of the place. Lotsa cats and dogs around... Could be disastrous if u don't like them... Very helpful staff. Pretend that u aren't in a hotel but in someone's house and you will enjoy. Don't expect 5 star service and u will be fine...
Now for the disadvantages - food isn't that great, the bar is overpriced, it is quite a distance from the beach, breakfast is limited and served in the room.
All in all I will definitely visit there again...

Room Tip: Very very roomy cottages. We travelled with 2 kids and expecting cosy rooms, we booked a 2bedroom co...

The hotel is very expensive given the basic nature of what you get. Breakfast is minimal brought to your room so no choice. The complex owner has an animal sanctuary for dogs and every morning between 6am & 7am a pack of dogs howl like crazy. You will be woken every morning! The complex is very close to some kind of river so the view is of tall reeds and nothing more. That said the place is tranquil (after the dogs) and the staff excellent. A 3 min taxi into the main town is 10 R (£2 GBP) or a 20 min walk but path is minimal. The beach is absolutely stunning.

My second visit. Came last year with my parents... This year with my girlfriend...

booking and mailing, quick responses and very helpful. Arrived and checked in early, room was ready. James the Manager upgraded us to a better room (Penang 1) which we loved so much. Words literally can't describe the beautiful setting and the eyes for details this place got.

The pool area is the most awesome place, we loved it. We visited bon ton (next door hotel) one morning, and even though they belong together, I prefer temple tree.

Thanks again Temple tree team, especially James (the manager) who drove us to the harbor because we missed our punk up...

See you next year :)

Really special and unique grouping of restored houses with envy-inducing décor. I was apprehensive about the cats (allergies), but they stay well away unless you want them near, and scores of braver mynah birds provided delightful birdsong throughout the day (find the bird guide at reception). The pool is long and good for lap swimmers, and remarkably peaceful.
Very nice to have breakfast in the room -- great coffee! -- though we only discovered in time for the final day that they'll provide sugar-free yogurt on request instead of fruity stuff.
Only issues were that it's a bit of a sweaty walk on a busy road to the beach (go early!) although distance to the top end of Cenang Beach is only 1.1 km (I clocked it on my pedometer). And you have to go to reception to get WiFi. And if you have upstairs neighbors, you might need earplugs to sleep (staying in Plantation 5 we had a noisy group speaking Arabic late into the night, walking around on the creaky floor, and getting up at 6am -- right over our heads). Still, it was so pleasant and enjoyable, I'd love to come back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Though classified as B&B/Inn, Temple Tree is actually more of a boutique resort of many cultures, an eclectic mix of heritage chic...Antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin, make up this 8 villa hotel, with 8 rooms & 6 suites now open. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history, created its own heart and soul. Hopefully we have given due respect to each of these family homes with the restoration process. These houses are now the continuing the story of people who live in them, our guests. ... more   less
