A quiet getaway...
Hotel is not too far from JB CIQ. Uber works just fine here. Away from the traffic and crowd. Good sized rooms and really comfortable bed. Large bathroom with a tub. Room service was above average. Overall not too bad for a quiet getaway.

Horrendously bad service
We’re there for dinner in Oasis, they were badly understaffed. Drinks toke 40min to come and food never came even after 1 hour of waiting! When we asked, they say have not started cooking yet!!! We just walked out ...at least the beverage manager came to apologize and we need not pay for the drinks. Our friends were at another restaurant in the same hotel and same thing happened. Thistle...what’s happening, it’s not that your food is good either ??!!

Great hotel
We booked this hotel pretty last min but at a very good price. It's very near woodlands customs but a tad away from city center. The moment we checked in, Aliff from front desk left a good impression with his warmth and professionalism. He was very detailed in telling us about all the F&B outlet and hotel details etc. The room is spacious and brightly lit,the king size bed is so comfortable and they provide pillows of different firmness. I love the bathroom and it comes with bathtub. Only drawback is that the tv is a bit small. We had a drink at the hotel pub, not much crowd. The waiter/ manager was attentive and patiently inform us of promotions and wine available. The live band was quite entertaining tough a bit loud. Should try the anchovies with chili, packs a punch. I need to compliment chef CHOY from glass restaurant at breakfast. He went extra mile for us, when I feedback that the noodles served by another waiter wasn't hot and noodles a bit hard. He personally cooked another bowl for me and help me with the garnishing as I was allergic to the standard seafood condiments. He came back and fro to make sure everything was ok at our table. Thumbs up to everyone at Glass too for good service, keep it up. The hotel has weekend shuttle service to Legoland, premium outlet and City Sq mall.

The hotel looks a lit bit rundown and I mentioned that to the General Manager of the hotel and he indicated that they are in the process of refurbishing the hotel. Room service was a bit slow in regards to changing the electric kettle wasn't working. The staff was pleasant and very helpful.
