After a long day of searching and scouting for a place to put up for the weekend in the busy Malacca town, we came across the Sterling, a mini-grand boutique hotel which is a real jewel and located 2 minutes from the best Satay Celup (Capitol) in town.
From the minute we walked in, the staff were nothing less than helpful, especially Mr. Tony Yew who showed us all the available room types before we made a decision. He even personally drove us to our car which we had parked a distance away at Heeren Street lead us back to The Sterling. (talk about personal touch)
As this is a new hotel, we were lucky enough to be offered their promo rates (yes, very reasonable for what you get!) and enjoy a very clean and pristine rooms! We settled for the Reiley a very spacious room, which came with it's own Jacuzzi. Almost all rooms come with a jacuzzi, even the grander ones with the outdoor Jacuzzi! Perfect for couples or even family I should say!
Other amenities like complementary wifi (although it didn't really work out for us for some reason), personalized stationary (yes, all thought of!) carpark (big problem in that part of town!) and most of what you find in 5* hotels.
Dinner at the rooftop was also a wonderful experience... Lovely ambience with choice of indoor or alfresco (some of us managed to watch have a clear view of the eclipse that night!) Price of the food is reasonable for the quality.
Set Breakfast was also delivered to us in our rooms the next morning (albeit a bit late but that's easily forgiven!)
A new boutique hotel with top rate local staff, all very attentive to your needs.
Wish we had found it earlier and spent both nights there! Will definitely be coming back for more!!!
Keep it up!!!!! *2 thumbs up*
