My wife & I stayed at the Pullman, Kuching in late May - early June for six nights. I had been in Kuching in 1965 – 66 and wanted to do a spot of ‘remember when’ for me, and to show my wife ‘all my yesterdays’.
We stayed on the Club Floor so check-in was a breeze. Our room was large with great views across the town to the hills in the distance, and we had enough storage space to fully unpack.
We slept well and were not bothered by any noise.
The bathroom was one of the largest I have seen in any hotel with a full size bath, separate shower with rain-shower head and an additional flexible shower, which could be set to vibrate so as to massage ones shoulders / neck with hot water.
The restaurant on the ground floor (Puzzles) was the main place for breakfast. A wide choice of food cooked to order – and not just the eggs. I was surprised that they didn’t have any marmalade. I was told that they don’t keep marmalade – but they did have various jams, honey, peanut butter etc, but I like marmalade. :-o)
On another day we tried the breakfast on the Club Floor – not such a large choice as Puzzles, but they did have marmalade! The coffee on the Club Floor was very good, I kept one of the staff very busy as each cup was produced individually, rather than the percolated pot one normally sees in large hotels.
During Happy Hour (which is only an hour) in the evening, we were wished a Happy Meal. They didn’t have just the normal nibbles as per other Club floors, but full meals. The extra cost of the Club floor was well covered with not just the French wine, but with the abundance of food.
All the staff that we came in contact with were helpful and very pleasant.
After Happy Hour it was a short walk to James Brooke Bistro, on the river bank, to sit and watch the world go bye. We found Kuching to be a quiet relaxing town and it appeared to us to be more of a domestic i.e Malaysian tourist spot, than an int’l spot, which added to the charm of the place. Visit the Cat Museum for something different – don’t worry it is not full of stuffed cats or even live cats, just go an experience as to why the town is called Kuching.
