Sunflower Express Hotel
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We stayed in the Family Suite for 2 nights. We like the room as it was modern, newish, spacious and clean room.

Unfortunately the breakfast was not good. I suggest the hotel to focus more on quality rather than variety. On one of the mornings, the coffee was way too diluted that the colour is 10x lighter than a cup of tea.

Location was great for us since we were visiting Tg. Piai and Pulau Kukup which was about 15-20mins drive away.

The hotel was convenient for visiting Kukup for the fish restaurants. The room was comfortable and clean but the breakfast was not at all good apart from the coffee. Parking is limited to a few edicated slots in the street outside but coupons are issued free of charge for parking in the pay slots. There is no lift to the 1st floor reception which could be a problem for people with mobility issues.

Had a reservation to stay at Hotel Pontian for four nights, as we wanted to try a hotel down by the seaside. We arrived there to find musty hallways and a very plain room. We elected to try elsewhere and went straight to Sunflower. Although we had no reservations, the hotel clerk went out of his was to accommodate us, showing us different rooms. We got two nice rooms, spic and span, nice bed, and decent Wi-Fi connection. They have a decent local breakfast included, with good coffee. This is the best place to stay in Pontian, and their cleanliness and efficiency will give most JB 4 & 5 star hotels a run for their money. Not bad for an economical hotel. Thank Sunflower. Keep up the good work.

Had to spend a few nights in Pontian. Decided on staying at The Sunflower Express, as it had the highest rating in TA of any of the few hotels in this small town. I'm glad I did. Hotel was easy to find. I just called that morning and told them that I was coming, they took my name and phone number, and that was good enough, no need to pay by card online. Hotel is very clean inside. We got a room with a balcony facing the street. Beds were comfortable. Nice cool air con.
They have a continental breakfast, which is OK. Food is no problem though, as there are restaurants all over the place, as well as all kinds of stores and shops.
Couple of things of note: you have to park on the street. This requires parking coupons once you park for the night, similar to those in Singapore. Cheap as chips, but if you forget, it's a RM30 parking ticket. Another thing, they roll this part of town up early at night, so if you like to take evening strolls, you'd probably enjoy staying over at Pontian Kecil, where the Hotel Pontian and a few other small hotels are. Overall, I give this 2 Star hotel a 4.5 rating. I'll stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay there, our room was very spacious and was cleaned to a very high standard. The hotel is located in an area that is convenient to many things.There are dozens of very good places to eat all over this area, so you are in no way dependent on the hotel for food. A five minute walk in almost any direction will lead you to restaurants and cafes. Staff were very friendly,welcoming, helpful, courteous and efficient. If the hotel were high class standard, the staff would easily make this a 5 star hotel.
I will be staying here again.

We stayed in Sunflower Express Hotel over the Chinese New Year. We booked this hotel because is recommended by our relative.

We love the design of the hotel, "Sunflower Theme". Breakfast was average, good bed, excellent service, especially the receptionist name Dilla. She is very friendly and helpful.

We will stay at the same hotel again the next time we visit Pontian.
