Stayed there few times due to quarantine prior to offshore job. Service IS so terrible. Food is ALWAYS late, cold, with repeating menu. I ordered foodpanda, but the hotel staff kept the food at thier front desk for more than 1 hour! I called, asking for my food, still they took yearssssss to send it to my room. I ordered the food nice and hot, but the hotel staff kept it till the food went cold! How could you do that to your customer?? I don't mind the room. But the food service is a major disappointment. Please do something about that!

Lives up to it’s name I suppose Rooms are minging. Utterly disgusting. Be lucky if it was cleaned from the last person in here. I stayed for 10 days quarantine and have stay in many hotels for this reason but this hotel is bad. Food is disgusting and cold every time. No menu option you get what you get. There was a take away option from fast food restaurants but only from 4-5pm they would take it to your room. When it was delivered it took reception 1hr 10 mins to deliver it to my room. Called them 4 times to eventually get it cold of course. Electrical cables hanging out of walls Very poor staff that just don’t care on People’s health or hygiene. Highly recommend to stay away from this hotel. Would not even give it 1 but that’s not an option.

I am an expatriate working in Malaysia and this is my third quarantine / isolation in East Malaysia during Covid-19 pandemic. Unlike other establishments where I have stayed before, there is at Ming Garden close zero effort to make this stay as enjoyable as practically possible. The service is non existent. The rooms don’t even seem to be cleaned between “guests”. Mine is seriously filthy. There is no choice in food and it tastes horrendously bad (and I do enjoy Malaysian and Asian style food). There is no balcony and it is “strictly forbidden to smoke” anywhere. There are even obvious safety concerns like live electric connection inside the showers. Unbelievable. Never experienced anything as bad as this. Avoid at all costs!

There is new requirement that require personnel to undergo 14 days quarantine at hotel prior mobilizing to offshore. And this hotel was chosen for this. But the service given by the hotel very terrible. Food given really suck and food delivery very inconsistent and late. Tried order Grab food but it was not sent to room timely. We are human like yourself.

Just pick this hotel to dine for HariRaya Lunch on 24th May 2020. Due to CMCO Covid19, this restaurant at Ming Garden is empty. My mom and I got the most attention and very friendly service. The Ala Carte menu are excellent. Enjoying it. I hope they will design this kind of menu again.
