The quiet beach accessible from the hotel has the natural white sand that the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia is rightfully proud of. However, the hotel itself is beginning to show its age and doesn't do justice to the beach outside.

It was peak season so we got 2 double rooms at the adjoining units which were walk ups. The room and bedcovers had faint smell of cigarattes and mold. Room was old but it had a balcony and view of the garden. There was very loud sound from the generators especially at night. We had to call reception 3 times... More

Built over three decades ago, this hotel is in dire need for renovations. Wifi is extremely slow and the F&B mediocre, apart from their specialty, 'Nasi dagang'. Nowadays, their business comes mainly from state-owned companies, probably because of its ownership.

When I was small, always look up at Primula as a place I wish to stay. 30 years on, and I grabbed my first chance to stay there. How disappointed am I. The hotel seems reluctant to change from thirty years ago. Same furniture, same decor that grow older and smellier over time. It is located near a beach, but... More

Lots of cockroaches in the room and at the breakfast buffet tables. The extra bed is not comfortable. The toilet looks old and there was no shower head. We checked out and went to prinzpark and it is way better. Primula needs a major refurbishment if they want to maintain their standard

A beachfront hotel in the city of Kuala Terengganu. Stayed here for a week in December 2014 on business. Rooms have a large balcony facing the beach and great for viewing sunrise and sunsets. During my stay I noticed the guests were mostly locals with families.

Spent a day in the hotel after a drive from Kuantan. First impressions were - gee this hotel could do with a makeover. The decor is dated and conservative. Location is superb, close to the heart of town yet next to the beach! Room were spacious but the furnishings were sparse, old and in need of a serious makeover. Wifi... More

We spent our Chinese New Year holidays here. We stayed in the left wing of the hotel that has the view of the kuala terengganu town. Location wise, this hotel is very strategic as it is located near the beach and also the town. The room we stayed in was okay. The swimming pool is in need of a makeover... More

What I wanted was a hotel on the beach in Kuala Terengganu and happily, this is exactly what we got. The beach has a long coast line so was wonderful for walks/jog and watching the sun rise. The hotel also makes a good effort of cleaning up the sea debris in the morning. The second they woke up, the kids... More
