“Great View& Location, big Room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The hotel has big room & lovely balcony which have a great view. Looking at the rear side of the hotel it just look like unfinish hotel (scaffolding still there). The floor dont have a carpet so its quite cold & not suitable for family which have kids.

The bathroom has unstable hot water. So we end up need to boiler the water for our infant to bath. The breakfast was dissapointing. The chicken curry was not cooked properly & was still rare. Other dish is just normal. Slow to replenish. Need to get up early to get a proper meal.

The location of the hotel was superb. Walking distance to shopping places & night market. If you wish to come to langkawi just for a short trip (shopping trip) this might be an ideal place..

Cons : Water heater problem.

Pros : A walking distance from nearby market at night & duty free shops. Great view!

Room Tip: Take a room facing the sea / kuah town view!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

With it's brightly painted exterior and the hotel next door painted to resemble the Malaysiabn flag it would be difficult to lose this hotel after a heavy night...

The hotel is clean and basic, it has huge rooms, with not much in them. Massive, comfortable beds (seriously, these beds are big enough to sleep about 5 people - but this is Malaysia and that is unlikely to happen in a fun way,...). The bathrooms are clean, but in the five days I stayed there, I didn't have one single shower that wasn't freezing. There are fridges in the rooms, but these are for storage, (as oppose to being a minibar). The staff are extremely friendly, but the language barrier lead to some misunderstandings (laundry disappeared for 3 days, several taxis turning up at once etc)

Eating at My hotel... What can I say? Breakfast is an interesting experience - get up early as they tend to stop bringing out food at around 9.30. They is an omlette bar, but normally has a big queue. I think it might have been the time of year and the guests that were also in the hotel, but it was a little like the first day of sales at Harrods - I swear someone would have stabbed me if I got in the way of their toast. That said, the food quality was ok, nothing special, and a far cry from the treats to be had in Penang.

There is internet access in the lobby - Wifi and the world's slowest computer - free to use for guests. There is a small market across the road from the hotel for eating at night, but if you want a beer with your dinner you will need to either bring your own, or eat somewhere else - can get a little smelly with the heat and the bins...

My Hotel is about 5 minutes drive from the port, but as it is so close you will probably need to queue for a cab as the drivers are more interested in the larger fares.

This hotel is about 3 minutes' walk from the heart of Kuar, although, unless you are looking for some duty-free "bargains" there isn't a huge amount to do in the day or the night, it lacks the nightlife that you get in other places on the island.

All in all, would I stay there again? Well, probably not, but this is not reflective of the hotel, but the town. My advice is to head to the Cenang Beach - which is about 30 minutes by car - this has more to offer tourists, more restaurants - an actual beach - bars and generally is more laid back.

Room Tip: Go to Cenang Beach unless you have a real need for duty free booze and cigarettes (and suit cases)

Inspite some of the negative comments, I stayed at this hotel recently on a friend's recommendation and very surprised to find that the hotel was pretty good. The check in staff especially a young lady by the name of Farah was extremely helpful while the rest were very polite. Excellent location, duty free shops and restaurants just 5 minutes away. The only set back is the morning breakfast need improvements badly.

The hotel is strategically located in Kuah town but the road leading to the duty free shop is dark and heaven for muggers For the price that we had to pay, there is hot shower but it doesn't work properly. Room was not tidied even when you hang out the 'TIDY MY ROOM' tag and lack of new towels, (we were caught in heavy storms the 2 evenings we were there).

The breakfast was the worst I have ever had. Service was slow, food was sub-standard and food preparation was not at all satisfactory. Orange juice was from the cordial bottle, so diluted and not well mixed. Imagine there was only one staff manning the whole breakfast floor.

The management should urgently look for remedies/solutions at improving services/facilties at their hotel.
GOOD LUCK!

I did not stay at the hotel but had our company's annual dinner there. We were given the use of the ballroom which was more than adequate for our small party of about 40 pax. Menu for the nite was BBQ. Selection of food was fair, but OMG, I am lost of words to describe how they tasted. The serving of fresh salad was probably the only one that tasted the way it should. I was not sure what soup was served, filled with curdled flour. Main course was extremely well done assortment of chicken, sausages and lamb. They were cremated beyond recognition and taste. Coffee served was prepared a day earlier as told by one of the servers. The management should seriously consider closing down the kitchen.
