LOCATION:
Just before Gap gate (the entrance into the 8-km one-way road that connects to Fraser's Hill). From Kuala Kubu Baru, it is about 30 minutes drive to Gap through the scenic Kuala Kubu Baru-Gap Highway.

DESCRIPTION:
Another choice for colonial-style hotel to stay. The major difference is that the Gap Resthouse is not exactly located on Fraser's Hill. It is set some altitude below the mountain top but the air was still cool and crisp when I was there.

According to the people there, Gap Resthouse was recently renovated and I think it is for the best. The exterior looks nice, with traditional English home design along with flowering gardens. This resthouse is a perennial favorite for antic car drivers, as well as ardent bikers, who gather here for a quick weekend getaway. It is also popular for bird watching and hiking in the many trails nearby.

At ground level, an old coffee house awaits you, serving anything from English traditional fares, to local food and some Western. A basic room starts from RM40/night.

A nice colonial rest house to stay for an old-time ambience.
