good large room with full amenities. It has a pool and a nice gym. Breakfast was good with a mix of local and international food. Good location within walking distance to shopping mall and bazaar. Staff friendly and attentive. It is just beside the river and so you get a great view of the river. At the moment there are...

Hmmm.. i really hope the hotel could consider serious upgrading in the rooms.

Stained carpet is definitely a...

This my home in Kotabharu. Large rooms. Good showers. Efficient and friendly staff. Breakfast no good for Indian guests. Pest control very poor. However I prefer to stay here. The hotel gives me special rates and hospitality.

Booked a night's stay at this hotel after reading some of the online reivews which was pretty good. I must say that this hotel generally lives up to its name with the grand high ceilings and curved staircase at the lobby, sizable and spacious room with all the necessary creature comforts. Check in was a breeze and the front desk...

This was my first time staying in this hotel. Once reached the lobby look awesome however when I enter the room, it was a huge room but old furniture with dim light. The view was excellent and overall I find it is comfortable to sleep in only. The breakfast was not what I expected, reason is, it is not appealing...

It's quite old hotel but It's worth with what I paid for. A piece of advice. do find any discount rate in any website. Try to book 2 months upfront to get affordable value. I am very satisfied with the service especially the reception, doorman and the housekeeping. I went with family during my convocation day last 12/2015.
