We're family of four, kids age 5 and 11. I booked this hotel via IHG website, paid with 20.000 points from IHG Rewards (yes, it really works). At first, I worried about room capacity, whether they can accommodate four of us in one room. Fortunately, it's not an issue. At check-in, we're upgraded into sea-view room at Ferringhi Tower wing.... More

The hotel is well located with good access to the beach. The staff are nice and friendly. The room was clean but the hotel needs to be upgraded. Breakfast is ok but with lots of swarming flies to share with you.

The rooms were clean and spacious, the staff were friendly. There were kids at the hotel who looked like they were enjoying themselves with the facilities like the pool, ping-pong table and so on. There are night markets nearby, where you can get quirky stuff and other souvenirs. The only hiccup we had, was getting locked out of our rooms... More

This is the email I sent to the Hotel general manager on the 14th April. I have sent it again on the 16th and still no response. *not on the email is the fact the pool is tiny, there are very few sun loungers. And outsiders just drop in to use the pool. This place is a joke. Dear Simon... More

Overall I was very impressed with this hotel. I used my IHG reward points to stay and upon check-in I was thanked for my loyalty to the brand and upgraded to a huge sea view room. Really nice to get this recognition and upgrade. Needless to say I loved my room. Typical Holiday Inn standard for cleanliness and quality of... More

Clean room but furnitures looked a bit tired. Separated into beach wing and ferringgi tower across the main road, so make sure you know where your room is prior check in. Gym is extremely small. Breakfast selections are limited , same goes for buffet lunch.

The frequent guest membership program really works. The room booked was the hillside tower... but we were upgraded to the beach tower with a waterfront view. Also, they gave vouchers for poolside beverages (non-alcoholic) redeemable anytime... all because we showed our frequent guest card. Personally, I suspect it's because weekday non-holiday occupancy was low and the reservation was made for... More

Stayed here with two younger children for 7 days. Location is perfect near all the cheap hawkers and restaurants bus right outside, taxis right outside. Breakfast huge choice, if you could get to it before the flies! Staff very friendly, rooms large and have everything you need. Wifi working fine! The pool area is tiny and very disappointing for a...
