Overall, I was happy. It's a good stay.
The staff were friendly. A lot of food to choose nearby
I am very happy because of the hotel greeting paper and get 2 lollipops, good service! keep up the good work!
Location was great, room and hotel was clean, water flow is good, one problem that I had was the service, I asked for a towel and I had to wait 2 hours for it despite my doctor appointment, reception was bad, front desk claimed not to own any scissors, I can't even get warm water as a welcome drink, they said warm water wasn't available.
The good location and surrounding food
The bed are too small. room floor is dirty. the breakfast food no choices.
Foodcourts, restaurants surrounding the hotel
Just the towel not replace on time. Need to call housekeeping to request
Nice and clean hotel in the city center. Lots of food around this hotel.
Very nice hotel clean and very good location and food

Good value hotel with a nice pool
Stayed here for a few days with my girlfriend, and found the hotel to be good value. The room is decent, the staff and breakfast reasonably good quality, and the bar and pool very good (although could be a degree or two warmer) - much needed if you're visiting the rather hectic George Town.

Not as good as before!
The quality has gone way down! On arrival there were no towels or linens on the bed! The tiles in the bathroom were falling off., The walls were all scuffed up. However the staff was awesome. Very friendly and helpful.

Overall is average
Just a suggestion for shower heater , is too cold for me when i turn it to HOT, is not feeling warm or hot. And hope the parking lot can be more space, its too less for those who driving to come. The rest are average, keep it on!

Awesome room but the staff.
The room and amenities provided by the hotel was awesome. But one of the staff called me on my first night and ask me what time are you checking out and i said i staying here for 2 nights im quite pissed off with it. But overall everything was good. Recommended. 👍
