My husband and I had a lovely weekend stay when we attended a medical conference last week. We had not been to Port Dickson for many years so were looking forward to it. The resort has a nice and relaxing ambience and the staff are quite friendly. We had a spacious sea facing room on the 5th floor with a... More

Wonderful! Having recently arrived to the bustle of Malaysia we were met at the grand hotel entrance by the Hotel Manager and his staff with kind smiles, drinks and towels. This set the tone for a wonderful 5 star weekend getaway, with those rarest of hotel commodities; genuinely warm and friendly service. Fine facilities, fine beachfront, fine people. Can't be...

The attention to detail was superb with the hotel manager and staff meeting us with cold fruit drinks and towels on arrival. The hotel design, is modern and trendy and the food was some of the best we had in Malaysia. Our stay was definitely relaxing, with... More

Cycled here with a friend from KL (see his review 10th March) and stayed one night with our families who travelled by car. Arrived tired, hot and sweaty but were welcomed by the manager (John Murphy) with cold towels and cold water. We were well looked after until the families arrived sometime later. Our bikes were taken care of quickly.... More

I stayed at your hotel recently, my last visit was 2 years ago under gouman. This time my visit was enjoyable and worth of money, all the presentations in the lobby and my room were amazing. I really like the nice soft touches, everything was in proper arrangement and well planned. During my arrival until check in, i was greeted... More

Thistle is a relatively good Resort with sea front, BUT will a very poor front line team, they are proud and untrained. We supposed to enjoy our holiday fully, but due to a few impolite association with the staff and F&B outlets, our holiday mood were all spoilt. A good Resort must have good team working together, they failed to... More

Just stayed overnight at the Thistle PD. This is my second time but it may be my last. Staff quality and service varies from very good to very ordinary. Raj who greeted us and checked us in was excellent but I am afraid it ended there. Breakfast this morning was a shambles. A lot of staff but lacking in service... More
