The hotel's motto "Try us, You'll love it" doesn't seems to be what it is written!! Tried you, I hate it! Poor room maintenance! The power plug was faulty, sink faucet was faulty and the carpet smells. No parking lots for guests and why do I need to send a form to the maintenance department myself if I want to... More

After a terrible experience in Damai, I hadn't slept in almost 24 hours, I took the shuttle from Damai to the Grand Margherita Hotel. At 10:30am, the staff at the front desk instantly found me a Deluxe King Room without having to wait until a typical 2pm check-in. The room was clean, and quiet with black-out curtains. I immediately felt... More

Hotel is in a good location- on the water promenade and we had a room with a view of the river, which was nice. The room was very dated and the carpet, headboard etc. had stains including iron burns on the bag rest. The sheets and towels smelled clean but were also stained. The worst experience was breakfast on our... More

We saw this hotel online and the pictures portrayed a positive impression so we decided to book it for 4 nights. BIG MISTAKE. First, there was no proper bellboy service to receive our bags, next we noticed the small, dingy looking swimming pool right outside which inspired in Us, no desire to swim. Next we were hit by the wet,... More

The room itself was average, it had a safety deposit box, air conditioning and was spacious enough for our requirements. It was clean and in a fairly good location.

Top of my list why I enjoyed my stay here is the hotel's strategic location. It's right beside the waterfront, thus I enjoyed an early evening walk there, and it's right in the city's business district where you can find malls and restaurants. While their rooms are basic, it was comfortable, clean and cozy. Breakfast was good - had a... More
