Stayed there for 1 night. Not up to expectation for a 4 stars hotel. Room is spacious but interior overall looks like going to fall apart. Especially the toilet, looks old and dirty. The hotel seriously need got for a major revamp.

The Hotel Location is quiet fantastic with all the rooms sea facing generally. There is free shuttle service to Batu Ferringi Beach or you may just hire Bike or Car from Batu ferringhi Beach Bus no 101 runs every 10-15 mins.

Got the complimentary stay from credit card rewards. Hotel is aging, still using key lock, where majority are using card key. Room is small, just enough to fit one extra bed. Check-in process was slow. Nothing much around the hotel, we took 10 minutes car ride to get our breakfast.

It was awful. It's time to demolish this place. Advertised "hotel by the beach" is a simple lie - there is no usable beach but rather a coastline. "Refreshing pool" is dirty, staff is indifferent, prices are high and the service is non existent. Has nothing to do with the usually good experience at Millennium Hotels. Just don't stay here...

Having been here many times before. It is like coming home. Yes it is getting old, but the staff are so friendly, and the lobby as you walk in is just great. I have never stayed in the tower block. Only the lower rooms near the beach. The rooms are huge with a balcony and great view. The plumbing is... More
