It's still a great experience staying at The Thistle JB since our last visit 3yrs ago. Our check-in during the recent school holidays was easy breezy and the hotel's apartment room was amazing with spectacular view. It's spacious, clean and comfortable for our family of 5. Good selection for the breakfast buffet as well. We booked the Legoland family package... More

We stayed 2 nights. Convenient & great location, just 15-20 min away from LEGOLAND. Check-in & check-out was smooth & quick. Room is spacious, clean & bed very comfy. The swimming pool is great with a lot of sheltered area, deck chair & trees surround. I looked forward to come back again.

You should visit the Thistle Hotel, JB for their buffet breakfast. The team there, led by Mr Azrai, really WOWed many of the guests. His professionalism, friendliness, hospitality are one in a million and his smile with superb attitude are rare in these modern days. Check it out!

My husband and i stayed in this hotel for two nights. I was here for a conference. The conference ballroom was big and nice. The sound system was good too. Due to rainy days, i did not get to dip into the pool. The staffs were friendly and attentive. There were plenty of mineral water inside the ballroom for the... More

I had such a great time and great is an understatement I would say. I will start with the excellence of this hotel and then negative points. First and foremost I got a great deal for the room from agoda for the hotel and the rate even includes breakfast for two. The hotel was easy to locate and driving there... More

What kind of explanation is that from the GM about the reason the door is made to lock is only for handicapped or suite rooms. Please provide a better explanation as to how the rest of us who are not handicapped and not staying in a suite by your definition deserves less privacy or any insight into such bizarre arrangement.

This hotel is easy to find, well located, free parking, modern & to a good standard overall. We stayed one night only but did not find any major issues. Room was clean, good size, good controllable aircon, good wifi connection, clean & modern ensuite. As with many Malaysian hotels, the ongoing maintenance is a little slack. The cabinet door housing... More
