We stayed at the Planters Hotel in early Feb 2017. We were rather surprised at the cleanliness of the hotel given its 2 star rating. Yes, the room we had was basic and rather dated but you could not fault the job the cleaner does. The staff were friendly and polite. The wifi was pretty good however it appears as...

We love the strategic place. Nice, clean room. The price could be a little on the higher side, but it can guarantee a good stay and good night's rest. A variety of restaurants and shops around the hotel. Good choice for relaxing.

Good: I like that the hotel is located in a central location in Cameron Highland. It is exactly next to the main road, so if you are thinking of having a quite, peaceful evening, this is not for you. I believe this hotel is for those who look for convenience. It is very near to many eateries. The restaurants located...

Dear Debra, Having the convenience of being right in town and having to put up with the traffic is something beyond our control. I do agree that getting a good night's sleep is very important especially with all the travelling. I am not aware of what transpired but perhaps we could have move you if there were other rooms available...

Ha is all I can say about this hotel! After arriving and checking into anyway after a long day driving we were pleasantly pleased with the friendliness of the receptionist.

“Room 204 was great - the TV worked and so did the shower (you have to let it run a bit for it to get hot but it does get REALLY hot!). There was lots of room to unpack and the windows face a side street and not the main street so might be a bit quieter than other rooms.”
