Spent the night at this hotel back in July this year (during the Aidilfitri festive season). We were on our way back to my in-laws in Temerloh and since it was already late, we decided to bunk-in at a hotel in Mentakab.
Stumbled upon this hotel after spending almost 2 hours wandering and searching for a decent and family-friendly budget hotel. First impression: not bad for a rural area establishment.
Enquired about the room types, and decided to take up the deluxe room. We were offered a membership package, which the keeper claimed to have several benefits. Indeed, we paid a fraction of the published walk-in price, and discovered that the hotel has other chains in other places (maybe worth checking out for our future travels), and best of all our membership can be utilised to get VIP prices at their other establishments.
Room was cosy enough for 4 pax; with one queen sized bed for my spouse and I, and another twin bed for the kids - which we joined the beds together so that it could accomodate every one of us comfortably. Room was also conveniently located right next to the exit.
Plus points: free round-the-clock complimentary refreshment (coffee, tea and the works), spacious and clean room, spacious shower, membership upgrade which entitles you to cool benefits, 7-Eleven located just next door - great for late night snacking.
Downside: no elevator - have to walk up the stairs after an exhausting drive (the hotel only occupies two floors of the building - excl. the reception at ground floor), location of the hotel itself is a little bit secluded - had to venture in and out of alleys and streets before stumbling upon this gem of a hotel.
