Spent a night at this hotel after my wife and I made a last minute decision to have a weekend getaway from the city. As most of the branded hotels and resorts were fully booked, the only other option left for us was to search for a simple hotel. Thanks to all the helpful reviewers here in TA, it only took us a few minutes to decide our hotel.
We arrived at the hotel at 8pm and after dropped our bags in the room, we informed Simon (the young owner) that we wanted to rent a motorbike to travel out for dinner. Simon went to his neighbor hotel to try to get us a bike but were told that all the bikes had been rented out. That left us either get a taxi or take a 20mins walk to Pasir Bogak (where most of the good seafood restaurants are). Simon knew that we had a long and tiring drive and a pair of growling stomachs. Hence, he insisted to give us a complimentary ride to the restaurant. Talk about service! We've stayed in quite a number of 4-5* hotels and not many of them can even come close to this level of expectation especially in Malaysia.
p/s : He also gave us a ride the next day to his friend's bike rental shop in the town area.
As for the room, I could only agree with what most of the reviewers have pointed out. For me, clean and simple are the two best words to describe it. We especially love the shower because of the high water pressure.
The only downside we've experienced during our stay here would be their 'main road facing room'. The noise pollution from the motorbikes at the main road can be very bad especially at night and morning. We were unlucky to be placed in one of these rooms.
If you're planning to stay in BestStay, do take note that this hotel is located at Pangkor Town (about 5mins walk from Pangkor Jetty) and 25mins walk to the beach. Also, if possible, try not to get their front room.
