Location, friendly staff & free shuttle to beach

Comfortable stay. Friendly staff and they accommodate our request for early check in and adjoining rooms. There is also a free shuttle bus to Golden Sands Resort where the kids can go to play at Adventure Zone.

Rebranded yet again

Staff performance, bed comfort, value for money.

This hotel is now quite old and has been rebranded twice (Shangri-La to Traders to Jen). However despite the rather 70's decor it is kept very clean and everything works. We stayed on the club floor which has flat screen TV's and huge beds. The evening cocktail service in the Club Lounge was also one of the best I have encountered with everything replenished regularly, even 15 minutes before closing. Staff performance in topping up wine glasses and clearing tables was also good. The lounge is a little on the small side so it pays to come early. The gym was well equipped with all the usual machines, weights etc and a steam room and sauna attached to each changing room. Swimming pool is a bit on the small side but there is a separate toddlers paddling pool and a lifeguard on duty. The only gripe is the smallness of the car park. It gets very crowded at weekends and I think it should be reserved for hotel guests on Friday and Saturday nights. It is unacceptable to return to the hotel and to have to leave your car in a non-designated space blocking other cars and to be called to come down to move it at 11pm at night after the wedding function or whatever in the ballroom has finished. But overall a good experience.

Good location

Location, friendly staff and near to shopping centres

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Our kids loved the free sweets and drinks at the lobby. Breakfast spread is good, especially the fresh juice counter. Easy access to nearby shopping centres and can walk to New Lane & Kimberly street hawker centre.
