we enjoyed our stay in the Fathers Guest House, it's nice and clean and has friendly staff and free cafe and tea around the clock. The Hostel also has its own cafe for breakfast and you can book tours around the Highlands at the reception

Wenn took Palace there for 2 nights and had a wonderful stay. Very clean rooms and the owners are so helpful. The whole area is very green and you walk just 5 minutes to the "City" centre. Thanks a lot for this great stay.

After a couple of stays in different places in Malaysia, this guesthouse was a real treat! Welcomed by one of the managers and the very enthusiastic staff we immediately felt at home! They showed us around and told us about the tours and trails they can arrange for you. The room and shared bathroom were basic and clean. There's no... More

The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. They were professional and the place was run well. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm room but it was surprisingly quiet and comfortable. The beds were great! The restaurant has great food!

We stayed here for 3 nights and we really liked it, because it was quite quiet and clean. The staff were friendly and open-minded. It is near the town center (5 minutes walk) and the stop bus (10 minutes walk). We booked a private room, but I noticed there was dorms in the guesthouse and they looked very clean too.... More

We were luck to get find a place to stay in the Cameron Highlands, but Fathers Guest house was exactly what we needed. The rooms were pretty basic. There weren't any lockers so I was a little wary about the safety of my belongings while I was out of the hostel. There was plenty of places to sit and chill... More
