We (pregnant, husband and 15month-old toddler) and had a great time. Nice and quite rooms, we got the one nearest to the restaurant within the babyphone's reach. At the restaurant breakfast, and continental/Asian dinner was very good (we only ate a la carte and didn't use the buffet). The surroundings are very pretty with a lake-view, the premises are well-kept.... More

We reserved this hotel to stay there for one night. But when we reach the hotel they couldn’t find our reservation through Agoda. Then we had to wait until they find a room for us. Welcome was really good tho. Finally, they found a couple of rooms for us and took us through to view the rooms. When we walked... More

I stayed here 1 night for business, the hotel looked great from the website so was looking forward to it. My room was one of the cottages, it smelt very damp and musty, definitely not what I'd expect from a 4* hotel. The room was split on 2 floors, so the bedroom was upstairs, there was only 1 power point... More

perfectly located right in front of the lake with an amazing view.bar is really good with a fantastic view. Breakfast was very good. Room and washroom is spacious and very neat and clean. We were on our honeymoon and stayed for a night and we loved everything about it. Staff were very courteous.

The rooms were very comfortable. The bathrooms had a natural touch with the ceiling open to the sky. The meals served for breakfast and dinner were very good. The only problems we faced was internet connectivity in the rooms. It is only available in the lobby area. Also the credit card machines don't work well. It is advisable that you... More

I was staying with my friend on 25th Dec. At the night time when we asleep (between 12am to 2am on 26th Dec). The thief broke in from the window. He robbed all my cash, about $580 USD. He also cut my friend's suitcase open with a blade or something sharp. Luckily we were both sleeping and he left after... More

To start off with the room.. Big and comfortable. Furniture a bit old looking though this may be more appreciated by others. We were told that we had a more luxurious room...typically because the bathroom was bigger.. Which was great, but the shower was surrounded by plants and small pebbles (surely with soil underneath) to mimic an environment of some... More
