Stayed here for one night on business.
This seems to be one of the flagship hotels in Kangar, so it's a shame the upkeep is so wanting. Almost everything in the room is falling apart and worn. Safety latch on the door was broken, vanity mirror was broken, cupboard plywood was showing, towels were old, metal lining of shower floor was exposed and rusted. TV was old CRT (with NICAM! Now there's a blast from the 1990s). Only terrestrial channels available - what was frustrating was that certain Astro channels were tuned in, but all were displaying an error message: "Please insert smartcard".
Breakfast buffet was so-so. Nasi lemak and noodles were offered. There was an egg station but the omelettes and sunny side up was poorly cooked.
Room had the smell of old socks. I will say one thing good: the air-con was cold.
Stay in Alor Setar and drive up to Kangar instead, it's only a 45 min drive.
