Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Easy flexible check-in, although it has a smaller check-in area so when there's a lot of people it feels a little cramped. Couldn't get parking in the hotel so had to pay for parking opposite (RM15/day). We had a non-smoking room on the second floor. Room was clean and comfortable, modern amenities and easy access plug points. Mattress was firm, pillows were comfortable. The booking system on Expedia was a bit confusing (I previously stayed in a deluxe room and thought I rebooked the same room but seemed like I booked a basic room - difference was no couch and a smaller TV). Bathroom was clean and modern. Water pressure was good, hot water was responsive. Loved the pool bar, great atmosphere and decent food and drink options. Pool bookings required - 10 pax allowed in the pool and bookings were hourly. Checkout was straightforward and flexible.
