The service was incredible, people where smiling all the time and resolved every issue we had. The restaurant is good and you can call taxi to take you everywhere in town. The rooms are really nice and have incredible view. Good for business and events.

I stayed at Thistle for a relative's wedding. Upon reaching the reception, there was only one counter being operated. The other counters had staff behind them but they were just doing their own stuff. Not proactive at all. I had to voice out and then they noticed me. Check in took an extremely long time. Breakfast was a nightmare. I... More

The location for the hotel is okay if you are travelling with own transport. The view for the seaview room was beautiful. I really love the bathroom, haha. The breakfast buffet was okay. There's Mcd & KFC nearby. The open air parking (nearest to entrance) is limited. The staff was ok. Not much to do around the hotel area. Becareful... More

We bought 2 rooms via Legoland package for a night and another separate 1-night purchase (also for 2 rooms) via different arrangement to enjoy more value. The reservation team was efficient and kind enough to merge these 2 bookings into one, so that we didn't have to change our room. We've got the chance to enter Legoland 30 mins earlier... More

From the phone booking to check in, the staff at Thistle were pleasant, polite and helpful! making everything as smooth as possible. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable although there were definitely signs of wear and tear. The gym was well-equipped and quite large, bigger than most hotels with a weights, cardio and yoga studio. The breakfast... More
