“New, clean, friendly, but room service is a catastrophy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Nice hotel outside of Kangar. Friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms. The restaurant is fine. WiFi free of charge but only available in the lobby/restaurant area. Negs: Aircon in the room is a little noisy, room service slow or doesn't react at all.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

The location of this Hotel is quite scenic being surrounded by paddy fields, majestic government buildings and a small hill. Landscaping is nice done and they have these old style wooden sofas in the lobby which are quite comfortable. It gives you a feeling of being in a resort.
Even though I had made booking via e-mail and received the confirmation, the check in took a lot of time. At the end, there was no one there to help with the luggage and I ended up finding my own way to the room.
The cleanliness of the room was quite disappointing, with lots of hair all over the bed and some even in the drawers! I contacted reception and got it cleaned in the end.
I also found the common areas of the hotel not very clean either.
Bathroom layout was quite nice with a shower cubicle and a nice tap under the shower which is very convenient for taking ablution for prayers.
Buffet breakfast and lunch was nothing to look forward to, just the standard Malaysia fare, but certified Halal by Jakim.
There are no mosques in the immediate vicinity, but I think you might be able to find one in some distance with Perlis being a predominantly Muslim state.
Considering that this is a 2 star hotel and their rates are cheap, you could give this place a try in case you are willing to compromise a bit.

This is the best hotel in Perlis so far. The pools are just outside the rooms. The views outside the hotel are beautiful and greenery. The foods are variety. 5mins drive to Kangar town and about 7-10 mins drive to Kuala Perlis. Near to "Mini Putrajaya" of Perlis and have a park to jog near the hotel. One can go for a jog there or for a hill climbing in Gua Sami as known to the locals here which is near to the hotel and beside the park.

This is a fairly new hotel, and we stumbled upon it by chance as the hotels in Kangar town is fully booked. It's a few kilometers away from Kangar town but easily accessible, just 5-15 minutes drive to most places of interest. The rooms interior are well designed and comfy. The cafe serves good variety of local food for breakfast. The pool is an added advantage, definitely will keep the kids occupied for a few hours. Its surrounding is relaxing enough, with greeneries everywhere.

Been here during the school holidays in March. I totally agree that this is by far the most impressive Seri Malaysia that I have ever been. No problem about getting to the hotel with proper signages. The location is just fantastic. In 5-10 minutes, you're in town/Kuala Perlis jetty/mosque/restaurants and the highway. Stayed for 1 night for a short trip. Will definitely come back. Agree that the swimming pool is a rarerity in Perlis. The boys enjoyed it though.

Yes, won't deny that, the most beautiful seri malaysia that i've ever been.

Pool
------
good: pool just outside the room. been to the kids pool, ( accompanying my daughter) and adult pool. The kids pool was great. clean & big enough if u were there when school holiday.

bad:Unfortunately the adult pool were not properly taken care of. there some bugs, few of small trash on the bottom of the pool.

food
------
good: we manage to have breakfast there. plenty choice of food. Cozy surrounding. just like a 3 star rate hotel restaurant.

bad: as i'm quite particular of the utensils (food plate/ cup/ bowl). the kitchen manager should have a frequent check on it as i notice, still got coffee stain on the cups, the plate also not properly cleaned.
The high-chair for my 18 month daughter also in dirty condition. Have to clean it up myself before used it ( 2 star service standard maybe ..hehe..)

room:
-------
good: room were great! nice -cozy room.

bad: except for the bathroom - water pipe leak/broken, perhaps the room manager should make room-check more details.

service:
----------------
bad: got to call the house-keeping about 3 times just to ask for an extra blanket. may be we arrived quite late (9.30pm) at that time,so everyone its tired..huhuhu

good: all staff were very friendly


overall
---------
very satisfy staying in this hotel ! hope other seri malaysia branch's would be as beautiful as this one too!

It is a good time to stay at Hotel Seri Malaysia Kangar. Reason. Brand new and for less than RM200.00. A nice compact swimming pool in the middle of the hotel set up, ease of monitoring for small children. It was a quick trip in early December 2011.

We stayed there for 1 night. The good stuff has been said up there. We had no chance for food there as we explored Kuala Perlis jetty for food.
