Lets get the negatives out of the way first. The hotel would be ideal for folk who only want a very short stay...hence, Holiday Inn 'EXPRESS'. The storage place for your clothes was an absolute minimum especially if you were staying a fortnight. It would have provided more room had the clothes rail been placed horizontal rather than vertical. I was on the 5th floor and found the water pressure was not that good, but maybe better on a lower floor. The English cooked breakfast was scrambled or boiled eggs and sausages, every day. The pool/jacuzzi area never had enough lounges and only 6 were placed there at any time. The computer was an 'Apple', so there was no tower or any facility to upload photos on Facebook, (I did ask) which meant going to an Internet café. There were times when the computer was occupied by children playing games, which was a tad frustrating as I didn't believe it was to act as a babysitter.
OK now for the good bits. The staff were fantastic, the reception would greet you warmly as did the guys in security. A big thank you to Zamri, Sirhan & Joe in the breakfast room, all worked so well and always found time in their busy day to smile and say hi. Lastly, huge thanks to Agnes who meticulously cleaned my room and kept supplies topped up at all times. She had a very pleasant & cheerful manner which makes her an absolute asset to the hotel. I always knew when it was Agnes' day off as things were not replaced, and a time where I needed to go to reception for my own bottled water. Overall I did have a good stay at the hotel, and feel confident this feedback will be acted on as management appears to want to please so that one will have a pleasant stay. Thank you once again.
