Stayed 1 night 25-26 Dec 2021. Room 1807 Junior Suite. Stayed with our baby girl there request non smoking room. The room was great, spacious, everything was excellent pertaining to the room. However, during the morning breakfast, this is when the experience started to sour down. Went downstairs to have our breakfast that was already included with the room. The restaurant was packed, no social distancing or any SOP percautions were taken. The restaurant was full with OUTSIDE GUESTS that were there for the hotel promotional Semutar & Sarong breakfast discounted price. We asked the F&B staff there if they could seated us, but we had to wait. Mind you that, during the morning, other restaurant and the lounge in the hotel were still closed. The OUTSIDE GUESTS were still pouring in the restaurant. We had enough of waiting and decided to order room service that WE HAD TO PAY instead of enjoying our included breakfast in the restaurant. Hotel Management should prioritize IN-HOUSE GUESTS instead of just accepting OUTSIDE GUESTS into the restaurant. I had never experienced this kind of situation before at a hotel breakfast buffet. Will not consider Grand Renai anymore in the future for any staycation in Kota Bharu. Other than that, our stay was great. Check in check out was ok. The burnt cheesecake at the lounge was amazing. We order a lot from room service too, eggs benedict should use English muffin and not normal bread buns. Had dim sum at the chinese restaurant and they were okay. The smoked duck was tasty. Thank you.

It used to run under the Renaissance franchise and tipped as the only 5-star hotel in town. Hence locals called it Renai. Now it’s operating under that very name, having severed the operating contract with Marriott Hotel group (owner of the Renaissance franchise). Nothings changed save for the service. It no longer is run as a 5-star. But the rooms are still above 4-star. Kota Bharu being a food haven, guests dont eat at the hotel restaurant outlets except for the limited buffet breakfast. The other hotel is more centrally located but this Renai offers better value (in my opinion). Youre better off booking from the hotel website than the likes of Agoda (unless you are redeeming points). If you are looking for a true 5 star hotel in Kota Bharu, theres none. This is the closest you get.

Being a regular guest to this hotel with bi-monthly record stay on personal course, I never feel there’s element of appreciation/recognition this hotel ever extended for a loyalist like myself. With just a decent hotel quality and biggest room of improvement on customer service level I was made to understand that my reservation was expired a day earlier (still charged for no show) upon checking-in & admittedly to continue staying on the 2nd night given the bill had been fully paid. However, what really traumatized me was that nobody from the hotel called and reminded me just like how other hotel booking websites do to most of us either via auto-email or SMS. When asking this from front office agent this person kept saying “memang kita tak ada bagitahu (we never provide such info or reminder) as if we as a customer has to be god to know this in past life and be liable when this kind of issue arises. And it really got into my nerve when this unpleasant front office again started to raise voice defensively to reaffirm the fact that it was not hotel’s fault but the customer. It mimicked exactly just like a properly attired but with zero tolerance and courtesy of loan-shark officer threatening you with no available choices. In short, let’s go back to traditional way of booking this hotel via Agoda, hotels.com or booking.com whenever you feel your stay is well taken care of & be ready to accept discounted customer service quality.
