I have stayed at the thistle Johor several times on business. What surprises me how the rooms look and feel very tired . I have been in a deluxe room for the past week , excellent views from the room BUT the bathroom was in a poor state - paint peeling off the walls, mould on the silicone around the bath very dirty ceiling.
As for the room itself the carpet had a number of stains the bed side table had rings on the surface where people had placed glasses
I generally feel the rooms need a good refurb or as a start a good clean.
The good points , the teams in the restaurants and bars have all been very friendly and welcoming especially the guys in the pool side bar and the hive, which also very good entertainment from the local band.
I will be back in a couple of months no doubt and will update my review
