thistle change my impression of port dickson”

the compond is so spacious and greenery. hotel is very posh and so comfortable. very family friendly hotel.

Thistle has help me change my impression of port dickson. After had a worst experience in one of the hotel, i decided to check out and waste my money leaving the hotel and decided to move to thistle. Upon reaching seeing the crowd due to peak season the hotel staff manage to handle very well. I was so pleased when the staff decide to upgrade me from deluxe to suite room. i feel like blessing in disguise from pathetic worst hotel i get a huge spacious room. My kids really loves the hotel especially the swimming pool. They are strict on the swimming attire for those who swim in the pool and thats makes the different from what i get from previous hotel. At night, as we were so tired to go out for dinner we decided to try the room service. i was so please with the quality and quantity of the food. This hotel really worst the money. For sure i will come back with my family. i will also will spread to my friends how nice and comfortable this hotel is. once again thanks Thistle hotel for making me and my family happy while having our vacation in Port Dickson

Lovely Hotel”

Great pool very close to the beach.

We had a lovely stay at the Thistle Hotel. We had no problem with checking in and where shown our room in about 10mins. On arrival in our room there seemed to be a nest of flying ants on the balcony. The hotel immediately relocated us to an even nicer room closer to the lobby (which is great when you have 2 young children). The pool is great with two sets of slides and the beach is about a 50mtre walk across the lawn. It is currently Ramadan in Malaysia and the restaurants where happy to cater to our requirements even though a majority of guests where not eating in the day. The only negative is that the Thistle is not located near a town or other eating places. We had a car this time but wihtout a car you would be very restricted to the hotel. Port Dickson is also a working Port so quite industrial.

great restaurants, pool with slide for kids
beach pretty average

The thistle hotel is great because it is only about an hour from KL. There is nothing much to see at Port Dickson Town so you pretty much stay just stay at the resort which is easy. They are great rooms, clean etc. quick room service, pretty good water activities, fabulous gigantic pool, service in general was lovely and excellent food at all restaurants. It is a little pricey by malaysian standards. Overall I would recommend it as one of the best hotels in Port Dickson

Lovely hotel and service with a smile”

a good place to relax with privacy experience

Thistle Hotel is a good location to stay with. The bed of the room was modified into super king size bed was attracting me. The swimming pool was nice and fantastic in design and feel comfortable with the cleanliness of the pool. But one comment that i hope that i can give is there was no pool safety guard who responsible to supervise the pool condition whixh could cause accident like drowning or other else which could not be expected. the bar was also a nice place for drink and relax along the beachside. But the live band still have a long way to be improve themselves with their singing skills and especially when singing a new hit songs which they not so familiar with. Finally,i hope that the hotel management can take all this notes down and try to enhance forwards to be the best hotel in Port Dickson.

Splendid eventhough it was hazy ”

Location, services, view

It was an amazing experience even though we stayed during the haze period in June. we managed to use the pool which was beautifully design facing the beach and garden view. (the beach in port dickson was not like it used to be. the hotel is pretty hidden and you will need to drive a long way to reach the hotel. there was no the direction signage to the hotel and we have to stop by a shop and asked the people for the direction. the map in google maps too is wrong, instead of turning right, you should be turning to your left and drive until you see the thistle entrance. the seafood opposite the hotel is good too for a late dinner. great buffet breakfast, excellent croissant but the egg station may need some changes as there were too flies around it. overall, a happy and satisfied experience. will stay here again next time. definitely worth the money!

Very nice hotel for couple's getaway”

Perfect location, good private beach and good services.

I brought my wife here for her birthday surprise. When we arrive there, it seems like we're not at Port Dickson, mainly because of it is located further from other hotel and with its own private beach, which have a beautiful view and scenery. During check-in, I asked the staff if they can make something special for my wife's birthday. Mr Faizul, the duty manager at that time propose that he could decorate the room with petals, balloon and give a 1/2 kg cake. He will do it when we go out of the room so I have to give him an sms to notify him. When we went for our dinner and came back, we were surprised (especially my wife) on the decoration they made. A lot of balloons, petals on the bed, towels decorated as swans and mini elephant...all in all superb! I gave this hotel and their services a 5 star rating! Would love to come back here soon. Thank you Thistle.

Room setting, facilities

The Thistle is one of the nicest resort hotel in Port Dickson. With a very large park all around and nice facilities included a SPA and sport training park. Nice room with cozy and elegant decor that will inspire an home-feeling. Nice service too. Location is away from town so you need a transportation. CONS: The beach is not quite nice, but that's the nature of most beaches in Port Dickson. The toilet takes forever to refill after flushing and it's quite noisy.

Very good location, great pools, great rooms

Great hotel! The rooms were generous in size, with balconies and day beds. The bathrooms were spacious, the king sized beds were so comfy and can easily fit 4 adults. There were extra pillows in the large and spacious wardrobes for guests to use without charge. The pools were great too. They have slides at the kids pool, oh and there was also a large jacuzzi pool. There's also a game room and lego room for kids, plus a movie room for families to relax. The beach is also clean and we had kayak rides for free, compliments from the hotel. The staffs were friendly, the check in and check out fast and easy. The hotel is situated at the right spot, just outside the busy area of Port Dickson town, but still near enough to town. The new hotspot beachfront Port Dickson town is just 15 minutes away. Basically the hotel is a realy nice place for families to relax and enjoy themselves.

Went to Thistle Port Dickson for Chinese New Year weekend 2010. It was a pleasant stay. The staff were friendly and contrary to other reviewers, the check-in and check-out is now quite breezy. It wasn't slow as others complained. There were ample parking spaces for people who drove in. The beach was pleasant. The restaurants and bars were also quite adequate. Overall, I would recommend this hotel if people don't mind being a bit further away from the town area.

My children were so happy when arriving after depressing stay in Genting in another "5 star" hotel! The water sport was good but only given a few minutes ride for each of us. Banana boat was under maintenance, so it was not available, that was a bit disappointing. We enjoyed the sunset view from the hotel balcony and the beach. Taken a few amazing photos. All in all, I would recommend Thistle Port Dickson.

A New Year holiday getaway”

I have been staying at Avilion Port Dickson and Thistle Port Dickson (previously known as Guoman) for short getaways at Port Dickson; and this trip was at Thistle as Avilion was fully-booked. It was a pleasant stay. However, the lifeguards needed to be more receptive at the pool areas. My child's float was accidentally pushed away and he was struggling for a bit, thank goodness we had adults supervising him.I noted that there were many more children in the pools without adult supervision and the lifeguards / workers were busy doing chores around the pool areas, instead of being stationed at the pool areas. Altogether, it was a good break. It was however disappointing to note that Agoda has yet to honour the Price Guarantee policy after I found out that booking vide Thistle's direct website was actually cheaper and with more options (e.g. with or without breakfast).

Pleasanrtly surprised!”

Friendliness, Swimming Pool, Comfortable Room

From the welcome drink to the friendly bellboy and receptionist to the giant-sized king bed and wonderful swimming pools for all-ages, Thistle Port Dickson truly impressed me. My young children had a great time at the slides and wading pools. Little touches like the giving away of ice-cream to young children and the presence of a clown bearing balloons made the stay a memorable one for the kids. The beach is quite clean save and except that the seabed has quite a lot of broken dead corals. However, the hotel does its best and I can't fault them as PD beach is nothing compared to the ones on the east coast of Malaysia.

Do I have to wait when I actually have paid for my room???? ”

I arrived at 2.30pm and I straightly went to the counter for checking-in. Unfortunately, my room isnt ready yet. They told me to register first wait for 30-45 minutes. I was like "okay..." and I tried to understand their situation since it was on festive season. After 35 minutes of waiting at the lounge (my apple juice and french fries already finished for God's sake!!), I went to the counter and checked again. They checked it with housekeeping, still, my room WAS NOT READY YET!!!! And I had to wait another 30-45 minutes. When I wrote this, the clock is almost 4 FREAKING PM!!!! I AM NOT IN MY ROOM YET AFTER ALMOST 1 HOUR AND HALF OF WAITING!!! Please, THISTLE PORT DICKSON HOTEL. You can do so much better. I paid for 500 bucks per night and this is what I get??? 2 hours of waiting?? Is your management lacks of staffs or what???? Is everyone in your organisation on holidays too so the hotel is in negligence?? However, the service there is good. Just that I hate to wait in 5-star hotel.

Like a rainbow after a storm”

2nd time at Thistle for us. This time around by chance. Was supposed to be checking in at another PD hotel - Hotel L. Thistle's online price was at RM400, so we did our booking via Booking.com. We arrived at Hotel L and to our dismay, our booking was not reflected on Hotel L's system. Waited a while, made some noise, asked for some form of extras as a compensation of sorts. It was my anniversary and my wife's birthday and in our online booking, I did inform and request for an extra touch or two to make things special. Hotel L did not budge in considering my request. So, u called up Thistle and asked for availabilities, they said they have rooms and they suggested to book online to get better rates. So, I did just that via Agoda.com. Happiness is our name, much cheaper than initial rates, definitely cheaper than the disappointing Hotel L's rates. We loved our 1st time stay at Thistle, no different this time.. My wife and kids LOVED every minute of our Thistle stay. Please maintain your standards, if not bring it up higher. You have a fan in my family. Thank you.
