“It was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

There was nothing great about the hotel.I only liked it because the hot water spring and the theme park is walking distance from the hotel The hotel itself does not have anything to offer. The rooms were clean and check in/out was fast and efficent. If you are staying in this hotel, own transport is a must especially at night.

I enjoyed my stay at this interesting resort that offers an interesting hot spring facility with the gorgeous beautiful nature as a backdrop. Those who have children will enjoy the waterpark too.
The only down side of this resort is the lack of FnB outlets and one will need to drive to neighboring townships for a better variety of food choices.
All in all, this place is perfect for young couple wishing to getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life for the weekend!

Room Tip: Make sure the floor of your room is sand free as I did notice that some guest walked about the aisle...

I would only consider staying here if I am visiting the Lost World of Tambun. Well, I guess this is the main reason this hotel was set up. It is not actually a hotel in the first place. It is the upper storey of shoplots that were renovated to function as hotel rooms, thus don't expect too much. Nevertheless, it is a very convenient stay for visitors to lost World of Tambun,since the park is in the city's outskirt. So if your intention is to spend the whole day at the park, and you only need a place to lay your head at night, then this is the right place. The water park is within walking distance. Don't expect luxury. The rooms are equipped with basic amenities but comfortable enough to rest your weary body. If you expect to be pampered, choose another hotel. You may have to walk a certain distance to reach your room depending on where your room is located. F Don't fret. Consider it an exercise. Front office- prompt check in and out. Breakfast served at Pappa Rich Restaurant beside the hotel where you have to choose from set menu. The problem is the queue is too long and the place is very crowded. No need to dine in style since you will be having breakfast in your wet suits, since the main purpose of this stay is fun at the Lost World!

Recently we had a family trip here. Upon Check-In the Front office staff didnt great us... I supposed he is to busy to arrange the check in and check out routine but a simple smile could be great... I think he should know better since he is working in the hospitality industry. Room condition consider good.. and clean equip with amenities, complimentary coffee and tea (indeed they are very generous at it). The room is not sound proof you can hear almost every conversation and even a foot steps from outside the room.. (not recommended for a light sleeper) There's not much food outlet here and mostly close at 10.00PM so after that hours the area is dead. My first breakfast experience at PAPA RICH EXPRESS is horrible. you can choose only 1 type of food from the menu. Even a 3 star hotel provide you with a verity of selection. On the second day breakfast we had at the TARRACE. you need to walk across the street to get there but this time it is a buffet breakfast. Overall the team park is SO-SO just a plus point that they have a hot spring.. others need to be improve.. but to they F.O staff please learn to smile...

Room Tip: 1. Travel with car or else you will be stranded here 2. Ask them about the breakfast, first night w...

We stayed as a family at this hotel. We were told that the check in was at 3pm but was advised to come in early for registration. We were pleasantly surprised that we were able to check in at noon. We had requested for extra mattresses and all the requests were attended. The room is clean and the bathroom was also clean. The next day we had breakfast at the Garden Terrace and the only complaint is that they started clearing all the food at 9.30am when the breakfast is till 10am. Location of the hotel is fantastic as the theme park is just opposite the road. The staff there were very polite and professional in attending all our queries. Overall, it was a very satisfying trip for us.

My family of six just came back from a two nights stay in this hotel...after reading such disappointing reviews, I wasn't expecting much..but much to my surprise, the place was actually not so bad esp the hotspring at night. Enjoyed the landscape around and the rooms were not that bad after all. The only drawback is the fact that the groupon deal that they offered is not a discounted deal at all...don't fall for it!! You can buy at a cheaper rate direct from the hotel!!

Hotel management need to work on the cleanliness! Although we got our room key when we check-in, the room was not cleaned. There were strands of long hair on the floor, the tiled floor felt sticky and bad stench coming from the bathroom. Called room service to clean up the room again but our request was ignored even though we reminded them again and again. The cleaners did not appear until the next morning.
Our stay comes with breakfast vouchers from Lost World Theme Park. Breakfast spread was limited and awful. We decided to have our breakfast at the Ipoh town for the next 2 days, there were a lot of nice food in Ipoh town. Or can walk out to the road where you can find Macdonalds and Pizza Hut. We chose this hotel as we book package with the theme park. But I doubt I will visit both the hotel and theme park again. It was overall disappointing.
