We booked online their weekender promo to relax and just chill after a very busy week at work. I would say that their weekend promo is a steal since we get to enjoy their hotel at a long period of time. We were able to avail perks such as late checkout, a free pizza and free pair of flip flop.
As for their rooms, it's a bit old as compared to other hotels that I've been to. You can also hear people passing by/talking even when you're inside the room.
But what their interior lacks was well compensated by the value of their service. Generally, service was good and people were always greeting you and smiling.
As for their gym, it was a bit old and cramped. They only had 2 thread mills available. The attendant was attentive though and suggested other exercise machines to use while we are waiting to use the thread mill.
Also, when staying at their pool, the sun lounger is a bit scarce, we had to sit and leave our things on their restaurant table since there were no more sun lounger available. The pool was okay. But I would also commend the staff on the pool. He was friendly and he helped us out with our needs.
As for their breakfast, food were delicious. Coffee was not served instantly though unlike other hotels. We still have to ask coffee from their staff. We ate at around 8.30am and they say that breakfast will be served until 10.30 am. But what we noticed was that their were already empty plates on display and we had to ask for pancakes since we noticed no one is cooking it and busy doing other things.
Aside from this small glitches, it was still a great steal for me. The weekender promo price was already affordable for me so we couldn't ask for more. The hotel was also near to other malls and IT park and so is a plus factor.
