i stayed with my husband 3D2N to attend a wedding. i really like this hotel because our room is clean with fresh white towels. the reception, Desmond is also very kind and courteous. i had to no clue what else to do after the wedding and he drew me a map of all the places i can visit and only short driving distance away. i am very happy with my stay overall.

I was staying at this hotel for 3D2N. Based on the good review that I found here, I definitely making the right decision to stay at this hotel. It wasn’t hard to find the location. The landmark is Shell (petrol station). I think it’s the only Shell in Lumut. If you are going to Lumut you can simply see it on your right hand side. And this hotel is just opposite the petrol station.

The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The room was nice and comfortable. Enough space for a solo traveler like me. The design is cool too. It is rarely for a budget hotel to provide the room with kettle, in-house phone, slippers and a lot of towels. But at GM Holiday Hotel, all of these items are provided. For me personally, it is more than a budget hotel. Got a few channels you can select to watch. Even though some of it was not very clear, it’s not a big issue for me. The bed and the pillows are soft. There’s no problem with the air-cond and the hot shower too. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the accommodation.

A lil bit downside is, you need to have a car or cab to go to the jetty or sea. Because this hotel is about 10-15 minutes away from the place of interest. I think there’s only one restaurant nearby that provide breakfast, lunch and dinner. Again, if you need more choices, you need to have a car :)

Looking for forward to stay at this again!

I chose this hotel because of the good reviews and it didn't disappoint me. I stayed in a Deluxe King room for RM65. The only downside is for emergency, the permanent grill on the windows would not be much help. For other stuffs, all are positive. For a budget hotel, the room is big enough to move around, the King sized bed is comfortable (even more expensive hotels, don't have this), the lcd tv has a reasonable number of channels and more importantly it is clean. The bathroom is reasonably designed with facilities that more than match the limited space. Even though it is cheap, it tries to make it up with other practical conveniences for the guests.

Stayed here for as a stopover and didn't disappoint. First of all, be careful when you approach the location, from Sitiawan town to Lumut, the service road to the hotel is right after a sharp bend. Thus missed it the first time, but not a big deal. There is also no lift so be careful with the steps (albeit only 2-3 levels) if you have heavy luggage. Walls were not paper thin but louder noices can be heard, but dont take this as a negative.

On the bright side, the room was compact but adequate for us. Very clean and neat. Comfy, clean beds, and nice lcd tv with plenty of channels. The shower/toilet is combined type that will get wet, but honestly not a big deal.

Overall, I would recommend the hotel but it just wasn't located for our needs (we went fishing but the port was nearer to Sitiawan area) but for those on business trip to Lumut area, definitely recommended. Dont forget your mosquito repellent :)

Room Tip: Stay as far away from the lobby as possible

Staying overnight in Lumut, prior to heading to Pangkor the next morning, we were looking for a reasonably priced hotel. This 4 star rating is for what they deliver for the price, not necessarily that they're a 4 star hotel! This hotel was great, quite NEW, clean, no frills, but with a comfortable bed, a flat screen TV, and and in-room WIFI. Located in a "strip mall" off the main road, there's lots of parking - but if you don't have a car, a long walk to the ferry terminal. For <US$25 per night, a great value "find".

standard room only RM65 with double bed, lcd tv, water heater and hot shower. Location just around 2 km before lumut jetty to pangkor island. Room very clean, ample parking place, nice and friendly staff. Great place for budget traveler with very young children.

Room Tip: family traveler better choose bigger room
