First and Last stay”
We were excited to stay at this hotel as we saw there were some good reviews. Check in was on a weekday and hotel was very quiet. We came as a group but reception refused to gave us rooms on the same floor claiming hotel is full. It’s unbelievable as the car park, lobby, pool n even restaurant was empty! The room we got has a strong cigarette smell despite being a non-smoking room. There were stains on the carpet of the room, toilet sink and also bathtub. Fixtures like the bidet spray, shower hose and switches fall apart when u want to use them. This make showering impossible for us. Informed the reception about it at 4pm and they said a technician will come to repair. Waited till night 10pm and still no news; nothing fixed! When asked, they said there’s no technician available at night! We had so much difficulties using the toilet and the staff does not bother to have it fixed nor do they assist us in the matter by changing our room, claiming they have no available rooms. On top of that, the car park is not conveniently located within the same building of the hotel. So if you’re alone or driving at night, the walk from car park to hotel is rather dark n quiet, with no proper pavement. Rainy day will also be an issue as the walkway is not sheltered. We stayed for one night and before our check or time of 12pm, the housekeeping staff knocked on our door at 10am requesting to clean the room earlier as he said we will be checking out soon! Simply unacceptable!

I have nothing bad to say about the hotel. Decent price, good facilities and very comfortable bed. The only downside is that the carpark is quite far from the lobby. But everything else is perfect

Rooms needs refurbishments”
The room we booked had a lot of issues. Generally the room condition was old which requires refurbishments. General issues such as carpets are dirty, bathroom door jammed, dust & dirt on ceilings, etc. When we stayed her two years ago it was much better...this trip wasn't as good.

Room & Service”
I’m not sure is Agoda apps constraints or due to hotel filtering criteria. I had indicated 2 Adult 2 Child & their age. The bed unable to accommodate us and unable to add bed or ungrade due high occupancy. Requested for additional towels was also told unable to provide as max of 3, need to cater in case other rooms required. Rooms and bath room is very old. Well, service was good by the receptionist & restaurant staff, more attentive & helpful.

Very old hotel. Book only if you have no other choice”
The room is visually very old and corners will look dirty at some spots. Was staying in room 1019 which had an adjoining room beside and there were dam noisy china family and annoying sounding kids making noise the whole night which i could hear perfectly. So be warned, the adjoining room sound proofing is non existent. The restaurants are very passable. This is at most a 3 star establishment. Like what most people are saying here, ITS TIME FOR A SERIOUS RENOVATION!! STOP BEING SO STINGY!!

Was so spooked by the unusually deserted car park that smelled quite bad and was not linked to the hotel except via a scary stairway leading down from the lobby. Did not feel safe walking to the car park with our kids. The room was so dim even in the day. There were actually no ceiling lights, only lamp stands. Food at cafe was so so. Pasta dish was a no go. The local delights were not bad. Considering we were the only diners that afternoon, the food took surprisingly long to be served. We ended up staying somewhere else for the night.

Needs to upgrade”
The room i got was dirty. Carpet flooring was dirty and felt dusty. Had to put on the room slippers everywhere we go. Felt that they need to renovate soon as the room felt outdated. A spacious room but belittled by the small tv on top of a big old wardrobe. The wardrobe stores the fridge and the complimentary beverages tea/coffee, and the utensils. Both the wardrobe and the fridge has a bad smell and i dare not use the fridge to store my snacks or use the kettle to make my drinks. Hope they do something to keep themselves updated.

The swimming pool is under maintenance for 3 days and just our luck it happen during our stay there for 3 days. They should compensate us with some things like, meal vouchers or discount vouchers for your next stay, but nothing was given, just a notice of apologise to their guests only. The breakfast quality is poor and deteriorated over the years, it used to be good, quanity is less and less varieties.

Its not just a staycations.”
We booked 5 rooms. 3 King Deluxe City view and 2 Deluxe King Sea View. We are hopping to get all on the same level . But tht does not happen. Im lucky to have book the sea view as its way better thn the City view and the room is much bigger. The toilet was clean. The breakfest was upsetting For a 4-5 star hotel. I have been to Furama hotel in KL and it was a 4 star hotel. The breakfest was wonderful and delicious.. way2 better thn thistle. Although its not that high class. I hope they could improve the breakfest. Oh ya. the swimming pool need an upgrade. they have to spared the child pool and adult. This is also safety the kids.

I have no complain on this hotel. It will be our permanent choice if we drop by at JB. We have a fantastic view from our room. However, the breakfast choice is not that fantastic. Probably F&B Team need to review back the menu. Well, porridge was serve cold..or probably we are too early to come. Other than that, all we OK. Love the room space.
