Some people say that Majestic is to Melacca what Raffles Hotel is to Singapore... I wouldn't go that far but it was certainly an amazing experience that was worth rescheduling our trip around to accommodate... yup! you heard me right. This boutique hotel had around 50 over rooms, all with riverview, which fills up fairly quickly. We tried getting a booking a few times but to no avail, hence this time planned a trip on the off-peak season. The service staff were impeccable and truly the hotel's best asset.
The room was charming and quant, and we especially loved the open bathroom with gorgeous stand-alone bathtub. The room had a chaise lounge chair that overlooks the water - fantastic place to sit, chill and watch the river below. The lobby and lounge are also lovingly put together, giving you a very comfortable, cosy feel as compared to hotels.
The hotel had a turn-down service where they come in around the evening to lower your shutters, turn down the bed-covers, replace fresh water and leave a little snack for you when you return. Quite a nice touch!
The only disappointing bit was the pool... it's more like a plunge pool rather than something that allows serious swimming. But hey, it's a conserved building so I guess they can't have it all!
All the rooms face the river, so no fighting there. Ask for a higher room if possible, better view.
