This aging, somewhat smelly, noisy, but clean hotel, has very friendly staff...and not very professional: our phone in the room rang four times during our sleep, to wake us up , to tell us the transport to the jetty was ready etc., whereas we told them that we had everything arranged ourselves. Quite stupid and easily avoidable.

I was here for a business purpose. The check in process was hassle free, very quick. The room is quite spacious and quite clean. The staff are the most fantastic element of this hotel's hospitality. They were friendly, warm and very helpful. One of the receptionist, Azizah, drove me to restaurants without charge. The options of breakfast is basic. Overall,... More

A work related travel take me to this East Coast seaside town. Check in was fast, with friendly and attentive staffs at reception and in no time we were ushered to our room. The room was good in size and decked with the usual amenities. Buffet breakfast was limited - on some days its ala carte - but suffice to... More

Was here for 1 night to catch the morning ferry the next day to Tioman, that is what most people do if they ever visit Mersing anyway. Took an evening bus from Larkin Terminal and reach Mersing about 8:30pm. The hotel just 5-10 mins walk from Mersing bus terminal across the river. Checked-in was smooth & receptionists are friendly.

Stayed for a night as we had an early ferry the next day. Rooms were kinda dated and basic necessities like soap and towels given. Staff were friendly and helpful though. We drove from Singapore so the carpark was a plus. Close to eating places but you need to drive to the jetty though.

This is a basic but very friendly hotel. It's very close to the town centre, has ample parking and offers a free transfer to the jetty. It's a bit dated and drab but clean and comfortable enough. I would stay again if I was going to Tioman.

I had to stay in Mersing for a week for a business trip and chose to stay in Timotel as it was recommended by a local colleague. I was looking for something cheap and has good internet connection and this place fits what I was looking for. My first impression was that my room in Timotel was old and needed... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The room that I booked was Deluxe Room with King size bed. My comments are as follows: Pros: 1) Waiters and waitresses who served the buffet breakfast are friendly. The moment they saw me, they greet me. 2) Although the buffet breakfast has limited choice, the taste of the food is acceptable.... More

Location is quite strategic in Mersing town centre. I should say this is one of the best you can find in Mersing town. We're travelling in a group of ten so we pre-booked 2 weeks earlier for 2 single beds in each room. However upon arrival, we're quite disappointed as our booking is not captured in their system. After some... More
