“Nice hotel at affordable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

The room is clean. The security is good. The food is good. Next to the hotel are a few shops where we can buy extra mineral water, and other needs. It is only 10 minutes drive to Harbour Bay Ferry Terminal to Singapore. The hotel taxi service is very helpful.

This was my 4th stay in the hotel. The 1st & 2nd stay was in 2009 & 2010 repectively. My 3rd stay was for valentines day celebration in feb 2012. Got a good deal for the executive suite promo rate at $100 nett inclusive of breakfast for 2 pax and mini bar items. The room was just perfect, nice, cooling, spacious etc. Since it was an off peak period, breakfast was not crowded and selection of food is good. Unlike the previous 2 experience, Jacuzzi pool was somehow overheated this time. We had our dinner on Top 21 which is located on 21st level and had a good view of the batam/singapore night view. Overall, a prefect stay.

My 4th stay was 8/6 - 10/6/2012 (Fri to Sun). Executive suite was fully taken so we had the Premier suite for 2 nights, breakfast for 2 pax and mini bar items. This promo includes a free aroma therapy massage at The Natural Spa on the 5th floor. I was rather impressed with the service and tipped them at the end of the session. However, this time falls within the June holidays so the price is $128 nett per room night. Jacuzzi is back to normal this time. But breakfast was really unpleasant on Sunday due to the hotel running full house. All dishes were whipped out & slow replenishment of food when we reached the coffee house at 9am. Another unpleasant experience was that eventhough we were on the 11th floor, we can feel the loud music vibration from the disco till 5 or 6am in the morning. The disco & KTV had many free lance guests relation local girls so it is not a good choice for any female or if you are travelling with family to patronize.

Staff are friendly and courteous. The hotel can improve their services by implementing free shuttle to Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall / HarbourBay Ferry Terminal / Airport etc.

Room Tip: Request a room on the right side of the hotel as the disco is on located on the left.

Stayed for a night, for its price it is considered value for money.
Clean room, nice swimming pool and decent breakfast.

What I don't like abt this hotel are;
Location - there is nothing to look forward to nearby.
Room Service - Firstly, when the safe cannot be opened and it took them abt half an hour to send somebody to the room. Secondly, request for some ice cubes and it took them 15mins.

Stayed in this hotel for 1night in end Feb2012. This was the 2nd time I stayed in Plant Holiday.
Overall I find it value for money.

There's a snooker salon located just outside the hotel. Hotel has a big lobby and breakfast spread was good. Nice swimming pool.

The hotel is about 10mins drive away from Nagoya Hill shopping mall.

The room is spacious and you can see a big part of batam dowtown if you stay in high floors.
Room is clean but smell of fading cigarette smell. Bathtub is kinda small even for asian. Not a great place to be when you are not a smoker like me as people are smoking indoor. The food at the restaurant is nice but limited choice. The famous Nagoya Hill Shopping is 5min ride and the ferry terminal is just 15 min ride.

Room Tip: Choose high floor if you can.

Rooms, cleanliness and services are excellent. The lobby decor might be too much though, too extravagant. Buffet breakfast are excellent, you can have various local cuisine. The view and the location are not that great. Rooms are great, typical 4 star hotels.

Booked this hotel or NYE coundown as my friend said it has the best view for fireworks. And yes, indeed!! We had the best view of fireworks at the countdown. And the fireworks are played by the local people and tourists can be view either from our room or the beer garden at the rooftop.

We enjoyed the dinner at the top level but it wasnt that fanstanic on food. Try to opt for Hi tea from 11pm-12midnight instead where they served coffee/tea and simple snacks at a cheaper rate. More worthwhile while watching fireworks.

As for the breakfast- decent
Lobby- good service - some of the staffs spoke mandarin/Teochew.- very friendly n helpful.
Some screwed up with our room keys. But it didnt bother us as they were fast to fix it.
Swimming pool/sauna/steambath - decent but can be cleanner as we saw my sweet wrappers and people eating but no one clearing.
Good location- few mins to Nagoya Shopping Mall.

Room Tip: Opt for a high level for eye view for city and harbour...
