“Unpleasant stay...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

We checked-in at 9.30pm and the 3 rooms suites that we booked was not available with the stupid reason that the room is under maintenance. The hotel should not taken our booking at the 1st place should they know they were unable to provide us the room as requested. The breakfast was horrible were the buffet were serve along the corridor and the foods were tasteless. The waiter accidently drop the tea cup and it falls next to the kids pool, but he didn't bother to clean-up the mess.
It is not recommended to stay at the hotel during peak season.

Room Tip: Stay at Batu Feringghi instead of this hotel.

The location of the hotel is top notch, next to the beach and opposite a bus stop. The rooms are large and spacious and have a modern look. The seaview rooms have wonderful views and the free wi-fi is a welcome plus.

On the negative side, the lifts were infuriatingly slow and staff were slow to pick up laundry bags and other things left outside people's doors. This resulted in the place looking chaotic at times

Room Tip: The seaview rooms have beautiful views but noise from people on the beach carries through to the roo...

Spent a week in Dec. bed & breakfast. Check in was fast and courteous for me with a Miss Nor.Experienced attentive & efficient room cleaning service whilst staying a week there on 17th floor. Breakfast buffet was a wide variety of local and western style. Clean beach. Hotel shop stock essentials at reasonable price. Free courtesy transport to Gurney Plaza and Komtar area for Prangin Mall, 1st Avenue Mall. Needs to be booked with reception for the twice daily service. Bus stop outside hotel takes you to Georgetown for RM2. Half price rates for pensioners over 60.
Gym was well equipped.

I stayed at this hotel with family in November. We book for rooms and arrived at 4.30pm to find that only one room was ready??? When check in is at 3pm. Not a good start, thay have no proper internet facilities, u have to use the business room, but thae staff were very helpful. The rooms are very basic, balcony was ok size and buffet breakfast was not too intruiging, no real bacon, the omelette was the best part. Location right on the beach, but still very basic for ewhat we paid. I wont be staynig here again

Stayed here for 6 days after several room changes due to lack of view and smell of smoke We finally got a sea view. The hotel entrance is very welcoming but the rooms need some attention it seems there going through refurbishment as there was no terrace furniture. The rooms are comfortable and have large beds and the wifi is great all over the hotel. Great selection of breakfast buffet style. The hotel needs to get more sun loungers as there are very few on the beach for the size of this place. Overall it was ok but overly priced
