One of the better hotels to stay in Batu Pahat. Welcoming staff, clean and comfortable room, good choice of food at Breakfast. I have stayed in numerous other hotels whilst here but this would in my belief be the best.

I've stayed in this hotel a number of times, but have become disapointed with their service standards First issue happened during fasting month. The hotel did not have breakfast facilities for fasting Moslims. Instead they'd promised to refund RM20 of the fees. When checking out the story changed and I was told the money could not refunded.

I stayed for about 3 weeks whilst in Batu Pahat on business. For the first few days I did have some minor issues with some amenities however these were tended to promptly and with great professionalism. I could not fault the room I had, however there are some areas of the hotel that are getting a little old. I understand... More

4 stars hotel but should be rated 3 stars as it's just average standard. Stayed on 7th floor (newly renovated assume) which upon entrance, it's new but room is not. Cleanliness is just OK. Bad smell from toilet is true. Not able to remove. Lucky only stay for one night. Air-con with sound is unavoidable unless turn to lower level... More

Last time I stayed here was disappointing, so my expectations were low. When I checked in there was a large group, adding some much needed activity to the hotel. I stayed on the tenth floor and there was a better smell, as the hotel is busy with some room upgrades. My top criteria include wifi, gym and shower. The wifi... More

Good for a good night's sleep but that's about it. Food is disappointing. The hotel should really consider improving their F&B offering as it is also an added source of income to get external dinner guests. Pool closes at 7pm. Be sure to put on your mosquito repellent if you plan to hang out at the lobby lounge.

Keep up the good work guys. I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Stayed at the deluxe king. Room was clean. Staffs were friendly and had a pleasant personality. Good for 1-2 nights stay. Very satisfied. Nice refurbished rooms. Will surely return here.
