Hotel is located next to the causeway and it's quite basic. Check - in was smooth with no unwanted delays. Stayed in the studio room which were refurbished some time ago but beginning to look dated. Bathroom was clean. Wifi was free in the room which can connect up to 2 devices. Breakfast was simple but can be improved with... More

Booked via Internet engine and already mentioned late check in. Arrived around 8.30pm and the reception asked "do you want to make a booking now?" - I was puzzled since I just her the voucher stated payment has been made for two rooms. Have to wait 15-20mins for her to sort out. In addition she also asked for RM100 deposit.... More

The water was hot the staff tried their best. Other than that it was a really miserable two nights sleeping in a less than clean room with mosquitos for company. On the plus side the shop at reception has an excellent supply of mosquito insecticide!!

Spacious. That was the room that we got. We had the view of the Johor Strait as well as Singapore's Sembawang and JB's Stulang Laut. The hotel itself has nothing much to offer and parking isn't much of a problem. But from there it's a short hop to anywhere especially to the food haunts such as at Sentosa Garden, Stulang... More

Had book a standard room through online. But on the day of the journey, we had some unexpected work and had to call the hotel to inform them that we were arriving late. Arrive at 8pm. They had automatically upgraded our room to executive free of charge. Cool!

Actually i am very surprise why this hotel is given a five star rating on agoda as it certainly falls short of that. I am opinion, a 3.5 would be fair. Even a 4 star rating is too much. Room is relative old and plain. There are flies in the lobby. Really not a hotel to stay in for more... More
