5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in a family room in a hillview room in the Tower Wing. The room was enormous with a king bed and 2 singles - which was more than ample for our family of 4. The room had a balcony and nice views out over the hill and if you looked sideways to the beach. We enjoyed our breakfasts... More

The entire floor was full of a very strong staunch. Probably due to the dirty carpet. The staff were also unfriendly, and location isn't near town. The night market and restaurants nearby were horrible. Cannot think of a good reason to stay at this hotel again.

The main hotel is on Batu Ferringhi beach, with a covered walk way over the road to the Ferringhi Tower. Fortunately we were able to book a room with balancy, as there are just a few rooms with this facility. Considerable amount of noise from the road below, when out on the balcony. ~This didn't bother us too much, as... More

We stayed here in January 2015 for five nights. Very reasonably priced, a great view of the room (room 310 on the beach side) Fantastic Staff and great service the food is good in the restaurant and good value for money. The Tandoor Chef is brilliant! I recommend this above The Park Royal next door which is MUCH more expensive... More

First of all, if you are looking for the best location directly between the beach and the well known night market of Batu Ferringhi, this hotel is the perfect choice for you. There are other hotel in the same area but much more expensive. The hotel staff are very kind and helpful. Breakfast was very rich, well staffed and the... More

It was worth the money at usd90 a night when I managed to get an upgrade to seaview deluxe room!! Although we were awaken at 530am, we still managed to sleep back afterwards given that the pillows and bed were really comforting. The only thing that was upsetting is the upgrade was a 2 bedded room instead of a king... More

We had the fortune to get a room in the ferringhi tower which is located on the other side of the road. This building is brand new and spotless with super-clean rooms. We got a balcony with a beautiful view over the village and the sea. Amazing! A lot of monkeys is living in the trees behind the building, so... More

Check in was flawless. Staff were courteous and very friendly. The room was very comfortable and clean. Meals were very good quality and flavoursome. Unfortunately the problem we had was not with the hotel or staff, but with other guests. It appears that people bring their children to this hotel but do not know how to control them or teach...
