2 of my family members had diarrhoea. The food was not fresh and was below average for the price that we paid. Service was good but the taste was so sub standard.

We enjoyed Zest for both dinner last night and breakfast this morning. We have been coming to Malaysia for many years on a yearly basis and this is the first time we have made it to Melaka. A truly amazing city and very friendly people which leads me on to Mr Hishamudin.

Now obviously by the reviews that can be found here, he is mentioned constantly and after meeting him at Breakfast this morning I understand why. I was dining with my wife and son and very keen to see Uncle after hearing so much about him and we were not disappointed. A warmer and friendlier person you could not meet and it will be a sad day for the hotel when he retires. Sometimes in the fast world of travel where we are in one place one day and gone somewhere else the next, the individuals you meet on the journey can be forgotten and we can also tend to forget that folks like Mr Hishamudin in all their years of working, 29 years at this hotel I believe really are historians as well as staff members and I was left feeling that he will have forgotten more than I will ever learn in my life. This is what gentleman of his ilk bring.

I know this is not a traditional review in some ways but we just wanted to show our full respect for him and thank him for his personable and friendly manner.

Cheers

Sean

The food spread was just obscene and just tempted the palate at every turn. Fish slice noodle soup was authentic and delicious. The cream of the experience goes to the kopi tarik by Hishammudin. Sadly he is retiring soon but his love and pride for this hotel Ramada is in his bones. And it shows.
