    The hotel accomodated our family in one room at no extra cost although we were squashed to be honest. We all got breakfast every morning also, which we appreciated as there were no restaurants nearby.The breakfast itself has to be mentioned as it was fantastic every day, in my opinion. It was buffet style and an excellent mixture of local and western cuisine. The staff were wonderful, they all spoke excellent English and were extremely helpful. The reception/lounge area was large and comfortable and I enjoyed the band which played most nights. The bar food in the lounge was very good also and residents get a 25% disount on food which made it very good value for money. The room was cleaned to a very high standard eg our shoes were all lined up and our bathroom toiletries were tidied away every day. I have never had service like this before in Malaysia. Overall I enjoyed the hotel, it was a safe, comfortable environment to be in.

    The biggest problem was the actual location of the hotel. Although it was close to the shopping district it was separated from it by a major highway which we just could not cross. Every single outing required a taxi and the prices were set, there was no haggling and this meant that we spent much more than expected on taxis, The taxis here cost four times the price of taxis in kl so be warned.I Discovered almost at the end of the holiday that there was actually a free shuttle bus into the town.I Think that should have been made clear verbally when I arrived as I missed the notice.

    Despite the age and slightly run down interior, the rooms were large and provided for a relaixng stay. For the cost it was good accommodation. All the shopping areas and attractions were within walking distance, The terminus for the bus from/to the aiport is about 200m away. Breakfast choices were adequate (Had better/had worse).

    There was no internet access in the room, although it was stated to be, on the website. The TV reception was bad and limited channels. The basin in the bathroom was cracked. Also, the pool was uninviting. Did not want to swim in it. One morning glasses and cups were not washed.
