We went to the Holiday Inn with our three children aged 5,7 and 10. The lobby area is very spacious and comfortable, with iced welcome drinks available any time (after a long flight and hot transfer, this is priceless). We had a Kid Suite in the beach wing, overlooking the main street. It wasn't noisy or uninteresting at all, in... More

The low cost of staying at the Holiday Inn Resort compared to the cost of other large hotels in the Batu Ferringhi area made me a little doubtful of what to expect, however we were all very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated and the breakfast buffet was as good as any of the more expensive hotels... More

PRO: daily supply of bottled water; spacious; welcome beverages at hotel lobby; awesome coupons for use at F&B outlets; good WiFi bandwidth. CON: IGH reward points only for bookings made on hotel's website; noisy kids poolside; air conditioners... More

Someone said - "oh it's only a Holiday Inn" - we've been there three times now and it's always the same. Lovely staff from the bottom to the top - there is always one who annoys you but you can live with that when the rest are so nice. Food is great, cleanliness is super, people remember you and to...

Great hotel. Clean bedrooms with large comfortable beds. Excellent location, the nightly street market is right outside, and the best tailors in the area (Sparks) is right across the street. Great bathroom, with bath and a large walk in shower. Hotel restaurant/food was excellent and reasonably priced. We ate dinner there four times (the set menu curries were wonderful). The... More
