I spent one night in this hotel. While it has an OK location (beach access, some restaurants across the street, in between Gurney Drive and Batu Ferringhi), the building is old and looks old too. But it is sufficient to meet the needs of a regular traveller. And most importantly it is clean and well-maintained. It has shuttle bus to... More

The hotel should better train their staff! The receptionist was talking to their colleague whilst serving us instead of engaging with us. Considering this is our first encounter with the staff at the hotel, it would be advisable to train their staff to pay attention on impressing the guests or at least acknowledging the guest instead of having a 'chat'...

We had a great stay here in january 2014. Roomprice a night was just below 175 RM (without breakfast). Very friendly staff and good service overall. The room (with fridge) was large, clean, with 2 queensize beds and a nice balcony with oceanview. Downstairs is a little shop and some oldschool arcade games. Outside a big pool, kiddy pool, plenty... More

First of all I will begin by saying that this is not your 3 or 4 star hotel that you may be used to in Europe or America. There is no electronic key to let you in the room, there is no ikea style furniture, no room service at ungodly hours. What you do get is a feeling of staying... More

We travelled in June 2014 as a couple and stayed in Copthorne Orchid for 1 night. The hotel is good and staff is hospitable. All their rooms have a partial sea view and that was awesome. The buffet breakfast was also good. There is part in near the pool which gives you a direct view of the sea. Its amazing.... More

Yes some parts of this hotel need updating, but how much time are you here to spend in your room? I normally stay in Ferringhi, however chose here for something different and cheaper. Its only 10-15mins to the night market, which they have a free shuttle bus there and back. The food is just fine. Its not a 5star hotel... More

Behind the facade this hotel has past its prime..room shabby, no cold water in bathroom despite requests each day to fix, food average.(when available)..even the much flaunted private beach heavily littered .

It is hopeless hotel. They rate themselves 4 star but they don't deserve to get a star also. In the room there was no towels, napkins, complimentary toiletries and not even the doormat at least in the bathroom!!!! The food is hopeless too, and the manager and her staffs very arrogant!!! They assume for themselves and blame the guest. They... More
