“Great location for bars, restaurants and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great location, opposite bars and restaurants and a huge hyper market. Good for those guys going offshore who need everything at the doorstep. Rooms aversge but clean with hot water. Light system in rooms over complicated but still a pleasent hotel

Room Tip: All rooms good

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Stayed here many many times, attended weddings, conferences and leisure stay. Nowadays, I gave GP a pass by. There are other more charming places to stay for the same deal. We drop by recently JUST to catch up with some nostalgic feel to have lunch at the Western, famous (well to me anyway) for the steak. It was quite boring, staff were not too friendly, too formal (don't ask). The restaurant have lost its charm..sad. For a pricey meal, service could be better...the very least a 'Thank You'.

Room Tip: Get the corner suite..spacious and huge window

I didn't stay here, just had dinner. The food was superb! We had steak, lamb and homemade ice cream. Best western food I've had in Miri, and reasonably priced. I can't comment on accommodation, but for a nice dinner for couples especially, with a live pianist, it's recommended.

Grand Palace exudes an aura of luxury and comfort that is rare for hotels in Miri. Rooms were exceptionally clean. The staff was kind enough to allow us to check out 20 minutes later than usual because we were running late.

The hotel is located away from major shopping areas but it isn't too far. The immediate surroundings include a department store, Belle's bookshop, a number of massage parlors and too many restaurants to count. The hotel food isn't bad but if you ever want to try something different you will not have much trouble finding a different place to eat.

My only minor issue is the hotel provides free WiFi for only 1 device per room. Access to the WiFi is protected by a username & password combination which must be obtained at the reception. Connecting additional devices cost extra. I'm of two minds about this: while I can understand why they would want to limit access to the hotel network I imagine it would rub a lot of guests the wrong way given how even solo guests will likely have multiple devices that need WiFi. So if you're not willing to pay extra, best bring a network-sharing device.

Room Tip: As of June 2014 the hotel provides free WiFi for only 1 device per room. If you have multiple device...

I would call it a convenience hotel for business personnel wanting a quiet accommodation not far from attractions.
Personally I rate the hotel as having one of the best beds in Miri, giving you sleeping comfort. Meals would be reasonable for breakfast. For lunch and dinner it has a good list of choices from the menu.
Comfortable for meetings over meals.
The health centre (gym, sauna and steam room) is another reason for it being my choice.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel when I went to Miri for business. There were two good restaurants, although no bar and I found the gym with enough equipment to allow me to have a good workout. Wifi is in the rooms which was a bonus as I thought it was only in the public areas. If I had more time I would have ventured out the back of the hotel where there were interesting and busy eating places especially for breakfast.

We stayed here for another weekend in Miri. We checked in before noon, the front office was so welcoming, prompt and courteous. We booked the deluxe room but we were upgraded to the executive floor because the next day was my husband's birthday also because the first time we were staying in Grand Palace. The front office staff also congratulated my husband, just a small human touch but we felt so much appreciated. The room was not that big and the furnitures was quite old but it was very clean and neat. Parking is easy, but they don't have basement parking. Your car will be so hot in the day. Location is good, 5-10 min drive to the Bintang Mall and Permaisuri Mall (depends on the traffic). What we love here is the restaurant, we had dinner in Western Palace Restaurant, we ordered steak and it was great. For breakfast was just ok, they don't have a lot of variety.
