3 out of 5

The view from the room of the sea was great. The balcony is big enough to sit out on & have a meal. Nice place to chill & get away from the crowd. There is access to a small beach - cove really - which is pleasant. I get the feel, right or wrong, that the Orchid used to be a Holiday Inn, & as such needs a bit of TLC here and there, bathrooms especially. The staff ware very good, polite & helpful. When the free wifi starts in Feb 2013, that will save treks to the poolside to get on line. And it was a bit troublesome too, but they're working on it. A rate which included breakfast would be good.

Toilet flush system was not working; hotel did rectify later. Very old TV was working but not the remote control, they changed the controller. Surface of bathtub peel-off (yes, not joking), risk of hurting users (unfortunately cannot change the bath tub on the spot). Car park: full and asked me to park at junction of hotel and road side !!! what if my car was bang by some drunk yippies... hey it was X'mas eve ok?

Although facilities are acceptable , room maintenance was poor . Toilets dirty , air-con leak , lights not fully function , cobwebs , cupboard smell of cockroach ....... a bit more effort on maintenance and refurbish room like a new shower curtain , chemical scrub for toilet flooring and walls, vanish furniture wld go a long way.

Cheap, yes. Nice sea view, yes. Location is good and quiet with bus stop and food nearby. Room toilet shower curtain has black spot, and was rather dirty looking. Room furniture was old. Breakfast was not included in the price, which would have been nice. We booked here because the usual Flamingo hotel a few meter away was fully booked.

Located exactly behind Toy Museum. Friendly staff. Room ordinary with balcony. What we love the most is the private beach. But be careful as there are sharp rocks hidden in the sea near the beach that can wounded people.

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel with my family and the experience was certainly a negative one. Upon arrival, the check in process was slow even though there were many staffs standing around at the reception. Most of the staffs simply stood beside aimlessly as only one of them was processing the checking in for those that were in front of the queue. When it was our turn, I requested for 2 rooms with better view of the sea. Not only was the person who happened also to be the manager on duty that day unpleasant (a lady with shoulder length hair) but she appeared to be uninterested in serving us. Her reply to my request was that only some rooms are entitled to full view of the sea. My booking was entitled only to standard rooms and this mean I could only have partial view of the sea from the balcony. Then, I replied her that I didn't realize that there was a distinction for the 2 different kind of rooms since it was only stated on the website that the rooms I had booked for come with seaviews. From my point of view, this certainly appear to be an act on the part of the hotel to deliberately omit from its customers certain information in order to dupe them into believing that they are getting a better deal. Since I was with my family that day, I decided not to carry on with the conversation and simply agreed to whatever room she was going to give me. When we went up to the rooms, we were again disappointed by the kind of service rendered to us by the hotel. The room not only smelled awful but the furnitures (e.g. bed, sofa) were old and appeared to be dirty. Altogether, everything we have experienced during our stay in the hotel certainly did not live up to the its international brand name. The website does bear some responsibility for this negative experience of ours since it wasn't completely honest with the description of its partner hotel.

First of all, I wanted to highlight that I was given room earlier than expected(chk in time is 2pm) although it's weekend where rooms are all fully booked. The room is clean but furniture is a bit old and the cupboard are kinda dusty. Air condition are cold even at the min point. Management should consider changing it from centralize to individual whereby guest able to select their preferred temperature. The bathroom are clean but theres black mold on the shower curtain. The shower head and faucet are not in proper condition too. There's alot of improvement and upgrading needed. Since it's a 4 star hotel, guest might expecting more from it. But for a short weekend is just ok for a night sleep.

A fair and clean hotel, average value for money. We like it's location as it is on Tanjung Bungah, which is only 5 minutes to Gurney Drive and it has its own private beach.

The staff at the hotel were courteous and helpful. The hotel was not too far from all the places of interest and the free shuttle service provided by the hotel was very useful.

Unfortunately at this visit to the Hotel it was noticed that it has run down alot and therefore urgent attention are required to recity the unmaintained bathroom, toilet seat and the leaky water taps. The room carpet was smelly of cigarette smoke, although it was a non-smoking room and the lock and latch of the front door really need securing. In general, the overall condition of the Copthorne Hotel is nearing its natural life, unfortunately.

I expected more from the Copthorne name. Hotel was ok, shuttle into town was available on a regular basis. My wife and I both enjoyed the wide choice on offer for breakfast. Not overly expensive and definitely worth considering.
