I am staying here with husband for two night. We were here for relaxing, thus my husband refused to drive anywhere. The location quite far from batu feringhi town (about 15 min drive). So our mode of transportation is by hotel shuttle van and taxi. But hotel shuttle only operate during certain hour. However, the staff is very very helpful... More

Friends booked this hotel as a last option due to CNY. Parking was provided for all of our 7 super bikes and that was about the only saving grace of this establishment. Check in was tediously slow and the staff, although decked out in cheerful CNY garb, had demeanors which was anything but. When we finally received our keys, the... More

No main reception desk but four mini counters. Smell of must. Old style design. Bugs in the bed. Safe was broken. Unfriendly and unwelcoming staff. Have to hold the toilet handle for 3 minutes before it flushes. Cannot move the shower head. The bath and sink had yellow stains. Poor lighting in room.

Glad to have chosen this hotel as it was conveniently located along the bus routes to and from the airport. It's near the night market and also about 30 minutes to Georgetown. There's a small strip of beach across the road which is good for early morning walks. Hotel has shuttle service which makes it more convenient although I do... More

I booked a nine night stay for my 79 year old father and I through Agoda and requested a good clean twin room with a sea view. On arrival I... More
