This used to be my favorite hotel in Port Dickson. It still has a nice, clean and reasonably large pool with jacuzzi and a small slide for kids. The beach is one of the cleanest too in PD with plenty of activities and water sports to choose from. Staff is pretty friendly and responsive too. The only thing that spoilt... More

We head off to Thistle probably about 4 times a year. On our recent visit, we found that there has been a change in management, and that has led to some changes in the facilities provided. The Good 1. Staff are still very customer focused, and you get great service levels. The new Front Office Manager, Anne Jaafar, is a... More

Thistle PD is just great with its' big green lawns, beautiful pool with full of amenities. A real serene destination for those who just want to get away from the urban jungle. The staff just makes you feel very much at home too... My family just love that we could just stay a bit longer.

This was the second year in a row that we went to the Thistle in Port Dickson and, although the rooms are nothing amazing (and I have to say that this time some refurbishment would have been indicated for our bathroom), I do love this place. I love it for the Cumulus, the lounge bar on the beach, where I... More

We have stayed at the Thistle Hotel in Port Dickson around 4 times over the last 3 years. The staff have always been lovely and very helpful but this hotel for the room rate it charges is beginning to feel a bit overpriced for what you actually get.
