Stayed here for a few days and had a corner room with balcony. The room was a good size with comfortable chairs. We were given a wifi code but could not get reception. The towels were very thin with stains on the bedspread and the room was generally a bit grubby. The pool is a good size but green with...

The pics on the web look flash, but this place is pretty run down. Mouldy shower, stains on the blankets, dusty floors, pool smells like a fountain. I acknowledge that it's "heritage" but it feels like no-one loves it. Needs paint, carpets, new bathrooms and the common areas are very grubby and un welcoming. Also they are stingy: two tea...

We spent 4 nights at the 1926 Heritage hotel and enjoyed it much. One good argument for us was the close distance to town and a relatively large pool with outside relaxing area in this (real) Heritage hotel, which used to be a set of private Malaysian architecture houses. A very long corridor was been cut through the previous living/dining...

The hotel is in need of being 'smartened up' as it is a beautiful old building spoilt through neglect. For example there's graffiti on the reception desk which is the wrong first impression to give as guests check in. The reception area was untidy & cluttered with take away boxes & cups - again not a good advert for hotel...

Bathroom is rusty and dirty, ugly watermark can be seen almost everywhere. Room floor is made by timber, if you are staying on ground floor, you will be disturbing by the noise from upper room. breakfast just too...

The hotel has been converted from a row of old houses giving it an interesting colonial atmosphere and decor. The building is older and as such the furnishing is older in style but perfectly adequate and the rooms kept very clean. The breakfast was sufficient to suit most tastes and replenished when required. Staff were very friendly and helpful and...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff were pleasant, the room was spacious and was cleaned daily. A minor quibble...why do hotel staff everywhere tuck the covers in so tightly that it's such a tremendous effort to release them. We received two free bottles of water a day which is always much appreciated. We had a small verandah...

Brought my Wife and my two sisters to try out the Hainanese dishes: curry kapitan, inche kabin, ladies fingers with sambal belachan, Assam fish and crab fu Yong. Although the food was up to our high expectations , the restaurant looked jaded and run downed in sharp contrast to the quality of food served. But nevertheless worth s visit for...
