Second time experience.. was abit disappointed because the house phone nor the room phone wasn't working in the middle of the night. Had to go down personally to grab the staff but they apologise for the inconvenience caused and upgraded my room for free. Imagine trying to get help in the midst of the night at 3am in the morning..

More expensive doesnt mean better

Quiet, Large pool, Good staff

More expensive doesn't mean better. They gave us the wrong room but made it up with a free room upgrade to a suite with a private terrace. However, the room finishing and fixtures were disappointing. Room service for a reputable hotel like Thistle was sub-standard. It took 3 calls just to get through. But the person delivering the food was very courteous. The lobby food outlet even got one out of two orders wrong. But made up with an apology. The table cutlery there still had dried water streaks on them! The staff basically saved the hotel and I hope the management reads this and rewards them because everything else is a failure. Time to look for a new getaway hotel.

Superb holiday

good location, yummy breakfast spread, superb pool

it was a very pleasant stay at this hotel, we stayed for one night and it was 6 of us 3 adults and 3 children. We booked 2 deluxe straits view room and the view was fantastic facing the clock tower were we could see the football supporters watching the game through the big screen. The room and bed is huge and very comfortable. My husband even like the air that we breath, it smells fresh might be from their ionizer. Breakfast buffet spread served western, fusion and some local johor food like 'lontong' and kuah kacang which is delicious. And lastly My children enjoy the huge pool so much.
