“A good base for the Cameron Highlands”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

Gerards Place is an appartment that has been converted into about 10 rooms with a couple of shared bathrooms and a shared kitchen. The place has been recently decorated and so is quite clean. All meals and service can be found at Father's Guest House which is just a couple of minutes walk away. As with most of Malaysia that we experienced, the organisation is very good and the people are very helpful. For the food, I particularly enjoyed the Big Boy Breakfast of eggs, bacon, beans and toast - an excellent meal to set you up for the day.

The place to be in the Cameron Highlands! Gerard's Place and Father's place are great guest houses! Gerard's place is new, nicely decorated, spacious and within walking distance of Father's place were you can have breakfast or dinner. The food is delicious!

The staff is very friendly, well-informed and eager to help. They organise many excursions in the area as well as transfer to Taman Negara and the Perhentian islands.

I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed at Gerards Place as Fathers was full, great place, room in what was obviously once a private appartment, shared bathroom which was ok as there were two. Shower leaked around seal and flooded bathroom but otherwise was great, free wifi, hill made us fit getting home at night. Really helpful people and travelled on their van to Kota Bharu at end of our stay. Very well organised and close to fathers for meals and travel info.
Fathers in general needs better signage frm town.

We really enjoyed our stay at Gerard's Place. Yes - it was a bit of a walk into town, we timed it to the bus station and it takes 10 minutes but in scenery this stunning - who cares?

We found the accomodations were great value for the money even with the extra surcharge for the school holiday break. Gerard's Place was clean and quiet. The shared facilities were great; including a fridge, tea kettle, hot water showers (just make sure outside switch is on), free wifi, and satellite tv. The common area was great to meet other travelers. I did notice that the room had a slight damp smell to it but in a rainforest I didn't think this was due to any negligence on the part of the caretakers - simply the humid climate.

We booked a half day tour over at Father's Place which we enjoyed (we also ate breakfast there one morning which was tasty and affordable). Otherwise, we didn't really spend much time there.

My one suggestion - given that the food in Tanah Rata isn't the best to be found in Malaysia it would be great in Father's had a slightly expanded kitchen facility - perhaps a microwave? A full kitchen would be AWESOME but I can understand some of the reasons why the owners' may not want to do that (clean up and lost revenue from their restaurant at Fathers)

My only complaint - when we arrived after taking a bus from KL we had to wait almost an hour and a half to be fully checked in. We were told to wait for transportation to take us over to Gerard's from Father's without much explanation as to where it was. After 45 minutes of waiting patiently I went and asked and was again told that they had no idea when the jeep would be up to take us over. Poor planning!

Besides the poor checking in process everything else was great.

Stayed for 3 nights in a double with shared bathroom. Rooms were in a modern flat. Rooms were clean, bright, spacious and secure. Gerard, Jason and Lynn were friendly and were always willing to provide information. Booked tours and onward transportation for good prices and without problem. They provide a pick up service on arrival which is useful because of the walk up the hill. Note that Gerard's Place is a 5 minute walk from the office at Father's and a 5 minute walk in to town.

Wifi is provided but the signal was of variable strength. Breakfast was cooked to order. Valuables can be locked away in the office.

Overall, an excellent place to stay in the Cameron Highlands.

When we arrived, there was a bus from the hostel waiting for us, we were picked up. The man who invited us, described the rules and explained everything we could need and ask for. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. There was also living room with television, where people could sit, chat and meet together. The apartment there is a few minutes away from Father's Guest House, where you can ask for trips, you can also eat there.
The location in the mountains is very picteresque and conditions are very good. We definitely recommend this place.

It´s basically a well kept apartment in which they rent out very nice rooms. A bit too far from reception and restaurants, but it is nice to know your staying in a quite and nice place. I would recommend for sure.
