  • 4.0.Fair

    Spacious with good location and view but moldy

    The hotel is spacious with great bones. The view was great and the pool facility nice. But there were moldy shower curtains and moldy spots in the carpet. They clearly have a leak somewhere and just don't fix it. The fridge didn't work and the wifi didn't work. The wifi was very frustrating because we expected to be able to work remotely from the rooms one of the days, but we couldn't even get our phones connected, let alone our computer. Wifi does work in the lobby. The location is perfect, just blocks from the waterfront, with the free museum right next door. For a 3 bedroom, for this price and location, it's fine, just don't count on the wifi, and expect mold. It's too bad because it clearly has the potential for a spectacular hotel.

    Awesome place to stay

    The Room and location is good. Convenient place to stay, near to shopping Complex and attractive place. The room view is not so good due to facing parking space.

    Slow check in.

    Waiting for almost 1 hour to check in. We came at 3.30pm but staff at reception said the room still not ready. There also about 5-6 family also waiting for their room. Only able to check in after 1 hour waited. In the room there should be 3 queen bed, but there was only 1 queen and 3 single bed. Room also not really well prepared such as no garbage plastic in the toilet and no door mat given.

    1st i want to complaint about room, in my reservation suppose to be 1 Queen bed n 2 single bed, but when i chk in , they gave me 1 king bed n 1 single bed. I have children which i suppose to place them for 2 single bed. But i was given 1 single bed. At last my children hv to slept on the floor. I am so dissapointed with the answer from Front liner, she said the room was given based on availablity the what happened to my booking... I already request for 1 queen n 2 single bed?! And one more problem, no fridge inside apartment. The hotel really need to improve and renew old thing.... I am so so so dissappointed with my room reservation , the apartment look very old and unattended and gave to me and my family. Plus we are celebrating my son's birthday. I really the management can looked into this matter. Just because im local sarawakian they gave me bad apartment to stay and so not comfortable. I was charged when i request for extra pillow n blanket which im already request 2 single bed but gave 1 single bed. So unfair and im so dissappointed !!

    The location is perfect, view overlooking waterfront is excellent. Overall it is neat and well-maintained except the bathroom floor in master bathroom doesn't drain well. The outside toilet is noisy and needs looking into. It needs another lift cos sometimes it is too crowded and had to wait long.

    I think there is a need to do spiritual cleansing of the place. The staff were wonderful and upgraded me to a suite, 704. But I had some 'disturbances' in the night. worth looking into Thank you
