It should be noted that there are two wings in the hotel. The older wing and the newer wing. You would do well to make your reservations in the new wing as the old wing is I would say overdue for a makeover and renovation. We stayed altogether 3 nights in the hotel. Initially, we were assigned and stayed the... More

The hotel has two parts, one very old one, which will be renovated, and a newer one, which has already been re-furnished. The hotel website does not tell you that, but be sure to get a room in the newer part, the old one is from the 70s and is rubbishy. Breakfast selection is good although only minor changes. WiFi...

Had just finished meeting and was hungry. The Rejang Lounge is part of the hotel which serve food and beverages. Ordered Margherita Honey Salmon which comes out to be quite yummy. Had a wonderful time at the lounge overlooking the swimming pool and terrace. Place feels cozy.

We reserved a deluxe room in the new wing and were given a fantastic room on the river side with two double beds. Everything was very clean. The bathroom and toiletries were very good. Towels and sheets were of a good standard. Check in went smoothly, with smiling, courteous staff. We were extremely impressed with the travel agency lady who... More

I & some of my colleagues were staying here for a business trip. Checked in was fast, front desk were efficient but not that friendly. I got the old wing I guess since the room looked dated & need serious upgrading. The view look nice since it was the riverfront but the room was not sound proof enough. I can... More

I wanted the normal deluxe room but all were fully booked. So I took the one available at RM360++, which was the executive room, and afforded me access to the executive lounge. I came in late at around 10.00pm. The receptionist was courteous. The room was a modern room with working amenities. It was clean and looked new. Decent sized.... More

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights recently and on arrival we were pleasantly surprised with how modern the lobby was. The staff were helpful and friendly and within minutes we were shown to our room - we were on the top floor and the corridor leading to our room was damp and dirty with stains... More

I stayed with my 3 young kids , a friend and her daughter here for a weding in Hilton which is a walking distance from Magherita. We took the connecting rooms and added 1 extra bed. The room is small and old but good enough to spend the night. The kids enjoyed the pool while the Mommies enjoyed sightseeing and... More

Stopped by to have an afternoon drink by the water. We did not ask the price of the beers we ordered, more fool us, we were quite taken aback when we received the bill. Two Tiger beers cost 55 MYR. I just checked the room rate, on one website I could have stayed the night for the cost of less... More

The day I checked in was coincidentally the AIFFA event. I had to make a few rounds because the front lobby area was all blocked and eventually I had to enter from the back door. Fortunately a bellboy helped me with the luggages. The room is fine. Not exactly that classy but nevertheless its cosy. Some pest issues though. Found... More
