We stayed at Traders during mid June. I found the staff to be wonderful especially the cleaning staff and the guys on the door - very friendly and helpful! While it's not in the most ideal part of town (in my opinion) it is around the corner from the Prangin Mall!! This was great for shopping (too great maybe) also this is where Patrick Ung is - the wonderful optician! Breakfasts at the hotel catered for everyone - a huge spread with everything you could possibly want. Rooms were nice, beds comfy and air con good. Only thing I would have liked - they don't put a top sheet on the bed just the doona. We found it too hot with doona on and too cold with it off. But on asking the cleaning guys they gave us sheets with a smile! A good stay and I would stay here again. I did use the business centre for access to a computer but at 10MYR per 15 mins found this quite expensive! We also used the pool and it was great - quite cold in fact after the warm ones at the other places. Very soothing.
