I had a one night stay on the 18th of January 2014. It's a little too late for me to write this review but I guess it's better later than never.
I was looking for a hotel for a birthday surprise for my girlfriend and decided to try out Thistle since it has quite a nice review & I am impressed with the facilities it has & overlooking the sea, though not really near.
But unfortunately, when I checked-in into the Executive room, most of the rooms are already preoccupied. Hence, I wasn't able to get the sea view to my dismay. Secondly, I opted for a non-smoking level but I smelled smoke when we were on our way to our room.
Nonetheless, the staffs there are always displaying great service with a smile & courteous to you. They make you feel at home, Credit to the staff & management for that.
But what I wanted to highlight here was the main event. My birthday surprise for her wasn't really going as planned since the hotel had a few events going on. Hence, most of the places are out of bound to people, I called the room service and Mr Izzuan attended to me. He displayed great cooperation with me as he worked together to ensure I have a great surprise for her. After much discussion, I managed to get a private candle light dinner with her. I am very amazed with the set-up & the food that was prepared for us. It went as what I had expected it to be, He & his team, compromising of Mr Mizi & Ms Dania served me well throughout the dinner.
I would like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for making it a successful one.
To the managers who are in-charge of them, I believe they had done a great job & they deserve some credit. Kudos to them!
Once again, I had a great stay with Thistle, though I didn't get to enjoy the sea view as the other factors are more than enough to make up for that loss.
