TIme to upgrade Thistle”
Stayed for 1 night, booked 2 rooms. given room 412-413 which was the last room next to emergency exit door. aircon in both rooms are not cold, asked receptionists to get maintenance to check while we were out for dinner but still the same when we returned to our rooms. not sure if anyone came to check. rooms are rather old and dirty especially the sink in room 413. water cattle in room 412 leaks water. i m surprised with such quality for this hotel. used to be much better 3-4 years ago. stumbled upon a bangla housekeeping guy...he was nice and friendly...but i think we all know the problem now...use of cheap foreigner workers to upkeep a (4 star)hotel?? disaster with no proper supervision...breakfast place is still small to cater for the size of the hotel, many guests have to wait for long time to get to the tables. overall not woth the RM7ooPlus paid. please buck up and improve Thistle!

Not prompt reply in email ”
Before my check in to the hotel, I emailed the hotel to inform them that its a birthday gateway for my husband and they mentioned they are able to give complimentary cake and decor but after i emailed them my name that I used to book, they did not reply me any more. And as agoda did not email me a confirmation email for the booking reference, I was only able to give thistle my name and number that I used to book the hotel. Upon checked in, I asked the counter staff whether did she see my request, she said she didn't see and she was nice enough to say she will settle and will decorate the room while we left for dinner. However to my dismay, after Im back from my dinner. The room was not decorate at all. So its quite disappointing to have such experience. As this is not the first I request for such at other hotel and usually there isnt any problem.

Friendly staff, great facilities and good location”
Your front office staff or AM Mr Khairul and Mr Taufik was friendly and went extra miles . Thank you for the upgrade. This is my 2nd time at thistle jb. Great location and nice view. And one of your staff at the tennis court was very nice . I requested to play there around 10am but i saw he was cleaning the area and been told it took a day to finish . However i asked him nicely and he immediately stop whatever he doing and allowed us to play. Please thank him as i didnt get his name. Overall was okay only the breakfast was a bit crowded on Sunday. Maybe because its weekend. I would definitely come again with my family. Cheers.

Poor room service ”
I left the room at 10am in the morning. Upon returning to the room at 3:30pm, the room wasn't tidy up yet. Called reception to send someone to tidy up the room but waited for 30minutes in vain. Manage to change the room.

One of my favourite hotels in JB”
very well spaced room, nice bath area inclusive of tub (though a little worn out but still works fine), fantastic view if you’re facing the sea, safe car / motorbike parking, inconveniene if you do not have your own transport for shopping or site seeing.

Need an Upgrade”
It was a pleasant stay. However the hotel can improve more. Like the swimming pool area, it need an upgrade. Maybe add on a slide for kids pool and have it separated from the adult pool. This will be more save for young kid and infant to play around. The hotel was too silent for a weekend . the restaurant need some entertainment . Other thn tht all was Good and nice.
