“Half star Orient Star”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

When this hotel was built, I estimate 30 years ago, it would have been an attractive place to stay. Problem is they forgot to maintain the hotel past this point. As an expat visiting for work there are no other real options - some may argue that the experience is worth the less than $100 tariff. Definitely no frills and service is not something in their mission statement. Key advice is do not eat at the hotel.

Location is ideal with clean beaches. Facility is ok but not fantastic. More like a businessmen hotel, not that ideal for tourist. Room is cleaned and tidy... definitely need refurbishment. Breakfast is fine with varieties. Don't mind to stay again for short trip.

Everybody call it "Orient no star".
The best thing to understand is to go there but do you have the choice.
There is no international hotel in Lumut.
The quality is porr, the service is average and the food ...
In the vicinity there is only 2 restaurants but the ambiance is good.

Room Tip: They are all similar

Another trip out from Kuala Lumpur this month. This time for assignment in Lumut. I have been to Lumut a few times and all of them were business. Most of my trip is to Pangkor Island and Lumut town is only a stop over for the ferry. This time the assignment is in Lumit town.

Traveling time from Kuala Lumpur to Lumut is about 3 hours depending on traffic aituation and the route you take. This time I take the PLUS highway and turn off via Sungkai using the trunk roads.

Traveling together are my colleagues that is going to assist me with the program. We leave KL at 5:40pm and arrived in Lumut at 9:30pm after one stop between Sungkai and Bidor.

Upon arrival at Lumut town we search for the resort which is located at the end of the town nearby the jetty. Nothing beat this resort for its location. Only seven minutes walk to the jetty to Pangkor Island. If you feel like walking around town you can simply walk from the hotel.

The lobby is huge but the parking space is limited. You can park either on the right or the left side of the hotel. If the parking is full just put your car at the public parking next door. Upon entering the lobby you can see the swimming pool and the coast of Lumut. Reception counter is just nice for handling small group of people. Be ready to queue when checking out on weekends, you have to wait for a while and the lobby has amole space for that.

The room keys are using key card. We were given deluxe double with extra bed since there are three of us. It is spacious enough to hold 6 people in the room. Our balcony oversee the side of the hotel but we can still view the coast line.

Breakfast was provided and the selection can be improved. There were some local offerings such as nasi lemak and meehun goreng but the international is limited to toast bread. The coffee house layout for their food should be planned properly. It is quite difficult to move around and the food is located far from each other.

Since we were conducting training program at the hotel, we had the chance to ise their meeting facilites. The room allocated to us is beside the swimming pool below the main ballroom. Sadly the aircondition really require maintenance if not replacement. Other equipment is equivalent to standard given by a three star hotel.

I was informed by the management that they are refurbishing the hotel in the coming months. Hopefully the refurbishment program will give new life to the resort.

Nothing was right with this hotel. We have to change room 2 times (3 rooms) before we get something that is OK. The TV in the first room was not working - called them and took 30 minutes to arrive. The guy came in, change the plug and told us that it was working without even checking for himself. We checked and called him back, after 10 minutes of trying, he asked us to change room instead. Receptionist could not even speak english and hung up on me! Finally managed to change room but the hot shower wasnt working. Took another guy 1 hr to try to fix but in the end asked us to move room again. All the 3 rooms were dirty. NEVER go there EVER.

This is probably the hotel with the best sea view near the Lumut Ferry Terminal but probably with the worst food served. Anyway with some renovation to certain area in the building with it's classic looks this hotel could be a winner.
