“Value for Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2011

Was staying for 3 weeks. Nice place with close distance to Bandar the capital (well it's max 15minits by car). This place is very popular and you may need to reserve before you come.
Room is clean and the staff is very helpful. Spa/Sauna/Steam is clean and very nice.
Only issue that I see is the variety of food was not served for breakfast - I honestly don't know why - nevertheless I ate every day. However the Chinese restaurant on the 1st floor is absolutely superb for dinner.

Room Tip: Go to 2nd Floor and ask how to ring the bell

I have posted an earlier review on here about this hotel three years ago and was curious to find out whether it still lived up to the high standards and great value that it was then. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it did and I very much enjoyed my stay here.

The interior and design of this hotel is beautiful -upmarket and elegant while retaining a traditional Malay design that brings back fond memories of holidays I used to take with my family in Malaysian hotels when we lived in Singapore. The furnishings and the interior are just really lovely

Service, with one or two exceptions, was of professional courtesy with warmth, care and excellence and helpfulness that was wonderful and second to none. The rooms are beautiful, immaculate and have a nice ambience to them and the free wifi was greatly appreciated. The wonderful morning and evening buffets were of great value and the food was diverse and plentiful. The dim sum buffet at the Chinese restaurant was delicious and featured Malaysian delicacies I haven't seen in years!

Only three minor issues -one was that my complimentary mini-bar was empty when I arrived here but that was problem was fixed the next day. Secondly I wanted a late check-out and I thought the rate was a little exorbitant compared to the prices of some other hotels I've stayed in late for the same amount of time Thirdly, the hotel rooms are a little dark at night and could do with some more lighting. None of these issues will prevent me from staying in this hotel again and I eagerly await the next opportunity I get . I was genuinely sad to have stayed here for such a short time

We stayed at the Orchid Garden a few times over the past years, most recently a week ago. The rooms are tired and worn, but clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was standard southeast asian fare, with nothing to compliment, but nothing to complain about. The price is decent. The kids had fun in the pool. But there is nothing to really tell your friends about. The spa has the weirdest hours, so I don't know how many hotel guests actually get treatments there, we've never matched up with the boy/girl days.

We were there as part of a transit stop. It was perfectly adequate for our needs -food, a shower and a place to rest for a few hours. The hotel was probably very grand and well kept once but seems to be a bit shabby in places like corners. This is a shame as the staff were very friendly and helped to make our stay there enjoyable. Apart from this I can't fault it for cleanliness. I hope this helps.

We stayed here for one night while transiting on our way from Singapore back to NZ. We were given a room with two twin beds despite being a couple, and were put on a smokers level despite being nonsmokers, without any consultation from the check in staff. Seemed a bit like because we checked in late at night we were given whatever they had left. The room was old fashioned and quite tired, as were the public areas of the hotel. It was fairly clean, though the air conditioning vents were filthy.

The location was close to the airport, and right by a stadium. Definitely not scenic. But good if you're transiting.

The breakfast buffet was fine, but don't expect much in the way of typical western breakfast foods. The food was also quite cold. Despite this it was very close to the airport, less than a five minute drive. And they provided us with a free shuttle back to the airport. The staff were very polite though.
