Bad hotel for my family”
Waste my time to ask for replacement of room. The aircond not working. I booked 4 rooms and really disappointed with this hotel. The toilet “tersumbat”. The carpet in room so dirty. Not value for money. I can find another hotel at ‘this price’ more better than this hotel. Not recommended this hotel to others

Run down hotel”
The facilities of hotels such as swimming pool, gym ... is quite good. They have great breakfast buffet as well. Nonetheless the rooms & outdoor decoration is run down like they are not maintained well. Not valueable for the 4-star hotel.

Worst Service - Should be a 2 star hotel”
Cons -1. Through agoda website, i had requested for early check-in (12 noon) and inter-connecting rooms. Both of which did not happen. Instead we were given rooms on the opposite ends of the floor. 2. Agoda website mentions that there is a spa in the hotel. When i asked the staff for the price list, was told that it has closed down. 3. Decided to have lunch at the Glass restaurant while waiting for the room, we had to wait 45 minutes for our food, not an apology from the staff and only place available to sit is at the smoking area. So children had to breathe in the smoke while having lunch. 4.We were given a room with torn bedsheets. 5. There are no locks on the bathroom door. 6. Hot water from shower is for a very short time. 7. TV programmes are not clear but grainy. And the list goes on. While the rest of the world are providing excellent hospitality service, Malaysia continues with its 'i don't care' attitude. This hotel is grand exterior but crap interior (including staff).

Mixed Review”
Some good, some not so good. First for the good: Staff was very friendly. Beds very comfortable. View from high floor toward waterfront (not really a "sea view") was excellent. Included breakfast good variety and quality. We had a problem with the air conditioning. It took more than two hours to resolve with multiple calls. They eventually changed our room to a cooler room, but it didn't have the same accommodations as the first one, and we weren't compensated for the difference. Also, no hot water from the shower. Despite that, an enjoyable stay.

Very good location”
It is 15 minutes drive from the checkpoint. Near to dining places such as KFC, MacDonalds and Tepian Tebrau Seafood. Breakfast buffet spread is generous and delicious. My kids love the swimming pool. Room a bit old, the bathtub somehow I don't feel that safe, the storeroom where the extra pillow was stored - I was about to take it when I noticed dust all over it so I changed my mind. Overall, we had a pleasant stay

THISTLE hotel need a HELP.”
Stains: stains are everywhere. I'm worry about the hygienic especially when i travel with my 1 yo kid. I did ask for room changing...however, they can't do that. I have no option, but stay. No water on 2nd day: No water at noon. Luckily my wife check before she get shower. Luckily they change our room to a new from which is larger then the previous one. But still...you can find stains is everywhere. Breakfast: I'm not sure how Thistle get 4 or 5 star ratings. Please expect the worst. Imagine...basic cooking like Fried Rice taste like someone who just learning to cooks. If no option just go with the bread and fruits. You'll be good. Car Park: Huh...creepy, dark and old elevator. I advise you to park outdoor. Pool: Such nice pool. However...the pool is dying. Such a wasted pool. Overall: Thistle could be better. Not a 5 star, even 4...or even 3.
