We arrived at the Holiday in on 10th Jan. Bell boy collected our cases from the taxi, checking in was a pleasure, no waiting at all, and reception staff were just so pleasant. Went up to our room, no balcony, but the view made up for that. The staff had left a birthday cake and card, and decorated the room... More

Hotel is fine if you are on a budget. Needs modernising. The room in Ferringhi tower was spacious and the bed the most comfortable I have slept in. Unfortunately windows are not double glazed so there is a lot of road noise even though we were on 10th floor and the window didn't close properly. Although not filthy dirty the... More

Dear “suffolkvisitor2311” Thank you for your comments and for your information since I have been at the hotel for now over a year we had two small snakes. They are actually green garden snakes and are non-venomous. Their staple is insects, crickets and grasshoppers. It caused a lot of interest when the snake has been spotted and our team catches...

As soon as the taxi door opened I could smell the damp emanating from the Ferringhi Tower building and it didn't get any better when we went indoors. We were given room 1427 on the 14th floor. A good sized room, dated and need of an upgrade but with all the usual Holiday Inn facilities. I was a bit surprised... More

Me and my husband really enjoyed our one night stay here. Once we arrived at the lobby, the receptionist did a good job ensuring smooth registration and check-in.
