A breakaway

I had visited this hotel before and was so impressed i came back for a second time.. It was good but if only i could have the double bed instead of the 2 single bed.. Due to an emergency i checked out in the middle of the night only to discover the system is down. Hope my checkout is confirmed and they did not forget it.

Great location and fantastic staff

Stay at eh hotel overnight after spending a day at Legoland with my kid. The hotel location is good and not difficult to find. Complement to the house-keeping for returning my tablet (I left it in the room after I check out, and the hotel called me to inform me)

Great Hotel for a quiet Getaway

Great Hotel, service with a smile. Great Swimming Pool and Gym. The hotel is a bit far out from the city area but shuttle buses services are provided. The hotel had a resort style setting so perfect getaway from the busy city. The room is comfortable and spacious and the maintance is a bit disappointing. Buffet breakfast is a bit dissappointing as they do not change much of the food served. Checking in was a breeze and one of the best hotel in JB.

Fun short weekend trip

Worth the room price. Very clean room. The lift software could do an upgrade because it was painfully slow waiting for it.

The location is a bit off if would

The location is a bit off if would like to explore by foot. In terms of the environment, the staffs, service, they get both thumbs up for me. Enjoy nice music session in the night at the hive. Staffs there are friendly and they really treat everyone like friends. Will go back again. Cheers to Thistle.

The breakfast area (restaurant)

The breakfast area (restaurant) is too crowded especially on Sunday morning. Needed bigger space so that we don't have to Q to eat breakfast. The pool is wonderful. My daughter enjoyed it very much.
