After looking through reviews, we picked Timotel Hotel as it seemed the safest and nicest average cost hotel in Mersing, for our family that ranged in age from mid 70s to two teenagers. We were able to get a room with four single beds. Although we asked for a room at the back, we got one that overlooked the main... More

For RM230, this place was a total rip-off. I was there on a business trip and my accommodation was the last thing that I wanted to worry about. The room was dirty with pen marks on the wall and smelled musty. The shower curtains were covered in mold and water leaked from the bottom of the long bath when showering.... More

Stayed in this hotel en route to Tioman Island. The hotel has basic amenities and is dated, however, the staff were fantastic and friendly. The hotel is ok for an overnight stay although I wouldn't want to spend any more time here than I had to ...that applies to Mersing as well...not the nicest town.

The breakfast taste is not good, hotel bed is clean as my sensitive skin able to accept it. The amenities is very little, no toothbrush or razor and etc. no hair dryer. Compare to the price it is not so worth the value. Hotel staff is friendly and sweet

Like most people, we chose this town b/c we were taking the morning ferry to somewher else. Someone (possibly in reception) told us the hotel was built in the 1970's. Unfortunately, they seem to have retained the same carpets, furniture, linens and brown towels from the era. There's nothing nostalgic about this. Amazingly, even though the linens and towels appear... More

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. Knowing... More
