Smart, clean and simple
You’ll find The Beautiful Marigold Hotel slightly up the rise behind Planters. Like the location, the rooms are a slight rise on a streetside joint.
Rooms here are not quite as spacious as Planters, but it all just feels newer and better kept. Standards go for 130 ringgit, superiors 170 ringgit and family rooms for 230 ringgit. This is one of the taller mini hotels in the area, so some of the rooms do offer views of some description over town. A slight win. You’re also that little bit further back from the road, so rooms can be quieter.
Facilities are typical mini-hotel fare. Rooms enjoy bright feature walls and are well lit with plenty of windows. The room we were shown had a flat screen TV, WiFi, coffee and tea making gear and a tiny desk and plastic chair. The bathroom was clean.
The ground floor includes the spacious lobby area. Outside is a comfortable deck which we’d imagine is a decent spot for relaxing after a day exploring around the highlands.
Beautiful Marigold will appeal to those after a newish hotel at a not unreasonable price. The location is just a minute away from many of Tanah Rata’s restaurants and agencies. Note we were told the hotel has no lift, so bear that in mind if booking a higher floor room.
