We booked an executive deluxe room with extra mattress inclusive of breakfast for 3 adults from December 5-7, 2013. Airport pick-up to the hotel was RM25 for 3 pax. The driver was patient and friendly even though our flight was slightly delayed. Check-in was smooth. The room card was also used in the lifts/elevators before selecting the level/floor.
Room 308 was spacious for 3 adults but it would have been more comfortable to have a proper extra bed instead of a mattress placed on the room floor. Room was clean with adequate lighting. Bottled water, bedroom slippers, face, hand and bath towels were provided. Towels were a little worn-out though. An all-in-one hair and body wash with lime essential oil was provided in the bathroom that had a fixed rainshower. Poor TV reception. Free wifi speed in the room was acceptable.
Buffet breakfast at Café Sublime on the lobby level consisted of toast, cereals, steamed white rice, mushroom chicken, fried noodles, Sarawak laksa, egg sandwiches, banana fritters, hash brown, scrambled eggs, ham, sauté potatoes, omelette, beef nugget, local kueh/cake, sliced papaya, watermelon, orange & lime juice, coffee & tea. Some food items were changed daily. Food was replenished promptly. F&B staff was friendly and quick to clear the tables. There was less room to move around the buffet when the Café is more crowded as the tables are placed quite close.
Staff at the Limelight Rooftop Lounge on the 5th floor was very polite and friendly as well. The fizzy lime welcome drink was refreshing.
We returned to The LimeTree Hotel on December 9-11, 2013 and stayed in the suite room. Room 409 was bigger than Room 308. There was ample space for a 2-seater sofa and ottoman, however the carpet in this seating area was dusty and had an unpleasant smell. TV reception was better in this room. Towels provided were in better condition. The bathroom had both a bathtub and shower stall. The wooden blinds for the half-glass partition between bathroom and hotel room offered little privacy for our grown-up daughter. Maintenance staff was prompt and courteous when changing lightbulbs in the study area.
The basement carpark and some carpark lots at the back of the hotel were useful when we rented a car. The hotel is also within walking distance to nearby eateries, Spotfree (laundry shop) and the waterfront.
The same driver who picked us up from the airport on Dec 5, and a female reception staff provided my husband with a map and detailed directions on how to drive to the Kubah National Park - they were extremely helpful. Both my husband and daughter enjoyed their time in the national park.
Overall the hotel rooms and premises were well maintained and we had a good stay there.
