This is a Trusted Review. Why?

a lovely experience: Cindy the manager and her husband Chris were both really friendly and helpful. Chris has his own museum set up in their unit next door to the hotel, and is only too willing to show hotel guests around it: he is a genuine source of real information about the history of Melaka, and helped to make our visit even more interesting.

The hotel is beautifully restored with a lot of genuine old furniture and antiques in the rooms. The ambience is restful and easy going.

A little far out of town, but this ensures a peaceful environment that cannot be found in the middle of Chinatown.

We would most certainly stay there again if we go back to Melaka.

Cyclamen cottage has been beautifully restored. It was a peaceful and very pleasant place to stay, with excellent facilities. Cindy was a warm and generous host and very welcoming. Thanks also to Chris for sharing his collection and knowledge of the past. The breakfasts, Malay and Nonya food, were huge and delicious. I'd be really happy to recommend it to anyone staying in Malacca.
