This hotel has significant maintenance issues and the management do not bother to respond when the issues are brought forward to reception! I had significant rot in the room which I stayed and if I hadn't checked in after midnight I wouldn't have stayed at this location.

We timed ourselves to reach at the check in time (2PM). We had to keep waiting at the lobby while our room was being figured out. As our preferred room was not available; the front desk staff upgraded our room type (to room# 1217). The general maintenance of the room was an average. The shower area in this room has...

Stayed for 2 days 1 night with my parents (total 3 pax). Allowed for early check-in. Receptionist misunderstood my earliest request (requested for a king bed for both rooms, with inter-connection between the two rooms, but it was found that both rooms were twin bed. I had to go down back to the receptionist and requested for change. I was...

Had a short stay-over in JB attending a course in the government hospital next door and I landed pretty late in the evening. Enjoyed the luxurious hotel rooms with the marvellously spacious walk-space. Bathroom's a beaut and interior decor is fantastic. Bed's the prime importance and the walls are pretty thick which soundproofs most of the external noises. Had a...

Stayed two nights in this nice hotel in Dec 2016. Ample parking space during our stay and staff were attentive and friendly.The bed is just so comfortable. No complaints of the room, just one thing...should have a lock on the toilet door.

I have always regarded Thistle in JB as the high end hotel until I stayed there last Friday for a night, just to get a feel of the place. Much to my disappointment, it gradually turn to be my nightmare. Food ordered from the room took more than an hour to be delivered, the TV and the standing lamb was...

Stayed here for two nights and too be honest it's a bit run down and needs a good clean, the breakfast buffet was poor I didn't bother eating in the hotel in the evening, the rooms were ok (ish) overall it's just about a 3 star hotel

We were attracted to the hotel initially due to the location and great seaview. However, we were utterly disappointed even before getting our 2 deluxe rooms. Haliza, the front desk lady who served us, could not attend to our simple request of adjoining rooms. She gave us 7th floor initially but claimed that the rooms were not ready. She suggested...

Sad to say that we were disappointed with the service, seeing how we chose this hotel for our NYE celebrations based on the reviews. When we arrived, we were given a room by reception on the 5th floor which was not ready for guest. Bed was not made and bins were still full. Requested a change in room and was...
