Very comfortable place. I love the atmosphere of the space. Kind staff and beautiful architecture. The only thing I want them to improve was food. Breakfast and afternoon tea was not so special as I expected. But totally, I really enjoyed.

The staffs are nice and helpful. The family suite is very big and especially the washroom, but need to pay attention to the step if you have elderly people. The breakfast is amazing but if have the choice of Penang white coffee would be great.

Hi PuFFyEyez, If you arrive in the afternoon there is always 2 or 3 parking lots available (excluded Friday). After 6.30pm there is a lot of parking space available. The nearest paid parking is next to Komtar. Best regards
