Stayed in this lovely corner shop-house hotel for 2 nights in the Executive Room for 3 persons. Included was breakfast for two [although there were three of us] which was a choice of western or Malaysian fare at the Little Croc Deli Café on the ground floor. The interior design of soft lighting created a lovely ambience for this hotel.... More

We stayed here one night over a long weekend. The Guesthouse is in a quiet part of central Kuantan on a busy road. Close to the river but can't see it from the rooms. Still relatively quiet as nothing behind the hotel. Short walk to the esplanade on the river and a few local shops/restaurants. Very friendly staff, rooms and... More

Enjoyed my stay at this little guesthouse of only 6 rooms. The breakfast was a delight and the rooms were clean and well designed. Good shower and clean bathroom. Helpful and friendly staff. The noise from the street below can be annoying even though the hotel had installed double glazing windows.

Wife and I stayed here 1 night on July 5, 2014. Booked the standard queen room at a price of RM153.45 (included breakfast) through Agoda.com, and booking and payment were efficient as usual. We arrived at the hotel at about 6:30pm and the first of three faux pas committed by the front desk clerk was him assuming that my wife... More

This is our second visit to this hotel and it is as cozy and comfortable as before. We would keep coming back as long as we come to town. Great for an over night stay and rest before you proceed your next destination. It also has it's own restaurant 2km away which serves great western food.

Its more like a hotel than a guesthouse. We had a very big room with a nice big bed and comfortable mattresses. The bathroom was very nice with a big shower. They had payTV for free. The breakfast was delicious and one can choose from western or asian food for breakfast. They have fresh fruit for the breakfast as well.... More

I've been to Kuantan every year and this time chose to stay in this hotel as recommended by my friend. Although the price is a bit expensive as compare to other hotel, I think this it is worth every penny you spent the night here. There is only 6 rooms available in this hotel so it will be very quiet... More

One of the two rooms we booked was downgraded upon arrival. The guesthouse said agoda made a mistake. Agoda said it was the guesthouse's fault. In any case I did not get a discount nor a refund. The guesthouse itself is more like a small and cheap boutique hotel. Design is not breathtaking but everything looks spotlessly clean. The whole... More

The Name of the Hotel is partially misleading: Boutique Style: yes! River Side: Not at all! The Hotel is located at a very busy main Road. The room is well equipped, in a modern style and clean. Nice big beds with comfy mattresses. We could sleep well because the room was away from the very noisy main road and the... More
