A great little gem”

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights. The hotel has had the rooms refurbished and they are bright clean and airy, as you can open the windows. The hotel staff were probably one of the best we have encountered on any of our trips, and nothing was to much trouble for them. They were friendly, polite and always said hello., the security staff on the door were the same. And we thank you all for making our stay a great one. The facilities were all good, the restaurant was undergoing renovations, there was no noise, so we had breakfast down on the lower level, which wasn't the nicest spot but we understood. Breakfast was limited and unfortunately the fried eggs always cold, but the staff would take mine to be cooked a little more, thank you. I would recommend you give this hotel a go, a bit out of the town, but a good walk after breakfast or back to hotel after dinner at the waterfront. Or you could just get a grab, so easy.

Will come back”

Here's a revised review of the hotel: --- I recently stayed at this hotel and had a pleasant experience. The room was clean, although a bit small. The food was very nice, and since we preferred to dine in, we used the room service. Ordering was convenient through a QR code, and the food was delivered quickly. I definitely plan to return.

End of our trip”

We have been touring SE Asia for the last month & wanted somewhere relaxing for our final week. The Palace fitted the bill, a little way out of town so free of noise & with greenery around. Obviously recently refurbished we were made very comfortable . Plenty of eating places within a 15 minute walk including The Welcome Seafood Centre.

outstation for work and staying with family”

Booked for a normal room no window,but been upgrade to executive level with window. The room was nice, clean, but the toilet a bit smelly. The food was so nice and has few veriaty of choices. my kids like the test, inside the restaurant got in-house playground for small kids and it's help the parents to enjoy their breakfast while the kids playing at the playground. The staff are friendly, and well trained. Overall, i'm happy with my stayed.

It means "You are kind/nice." in English.”

I went to this place after reading good reviews on Google Maps since there were no other reviews. All the staff were very friendly and the facilities were clean, so I was satisfied with my stay. I think I will use this place again next time. Breakfast is served with a different menu every day and starts at 6:30 am. The composition is quite substantial. Room service is available until 9:30 pm, but I have never ordered it. One thing to note is that the walls are thin, so you can hear noises from other rooms. Also, the mirrors are only in the coffee table and bathroom, so it was a bit difficult to do makeup. However, other than that, I was satisfied. Very nice.
