“Good for one night stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

We arrived late at the hotel after a long wait at the causeway from Singapore, receptionist was fine with this when we called earlier to advise and there was someone to take our luggage to our rooms. The rooms were large, a nice cot was provided for my daughter and beds were comfy but rooms very dated. Bathrooms in need of refurbishment and flush a bit dodgy. Breakfast was buffet style but cereal was the best option however would use it again for an overnight stay in Mersing.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

This hotel is cheap, clean and friendly. When we arrived at the TImotel we were greeted by staff, check in was simple and rooms were basic but clean with good showers and air con. The breakfast was self service and plenty of choice. The ferry was 5 mins walking distance, they have a free shuttle bus but its just as easy to walk there. Beware one thing which is nothing to do with hotel timotel, as you land in bus terminal just round the corner from the hotel there is a lady meeting you off the coach telling everyone if they have bought there tickets on line and paid in US dollars they are no good, so some people bought new tickets off her. When we arrived at the TImotel the staff told us this was nonsense and rang the guy who we had bought the tickets off to reassure us. I would stay here again definitely..

This is a very moderately priced hotel and so our expectations were fairly simple. We arrived early but a room was made available straight away. It had 3 single beds (one slightly smaller than the other two) and plenty of space for our bags. The sheets looked very old, but I am sure they were clean and at least this meant they were soft! Bathroom basic but fine. Air con worked OK. TV was somewhat ancient, but also worked OK.

After spending the afternoon walking around Mersing, we were too hot and bothered to go back into town for dinner and so ate at the hotel restaurant. It was very reasonably priced and the food was fine. It was nice, after a hot dusty outing into town, to sit in a quiet air conditioned dining room.

The staff were very helpful and put on an early breakfast for us at 6.15 am. A free transfer to the ferry terminal was provided for us.

The hotel's location is not as convenient as others closer to the ferry, but we chose it based on Tripadvisor reviews and also on the recommendation of the company that provided our car transfer from Singapore.

A clean, pleasant well situated hotel with friendly and efficient staff. My wife and I have stayed in Mersing in previous years and had some pretty poor hotel experiences. Timotel was our choice this year and we were pleased with the standard. We were aware of previous reviews stating rooms were a little 'tired' and in need of renovation. Whilst this is still the case, the rooms were clean and beds comfortable and we were happy with the overall ambience and level of services. For the price, which includes breakfast (modest, but adequate) and free transport to the Tioman ferry, this hotel provides good value. It is only a 10 minute walk from the bus terminal. Given that there is little choice of hotels in Mersing, the Timotel is a good choice for a night or two.

Room Tip: We choice a room at the back to avoid any noise from the main road at the front of the hotel, althou...

Timotel Hotel is an okay hotel. The air con is adequqte and the bed clean, though the toilet is a bit rundown. The TV reception ain't great either.

However, the hotel is just outside of the busy part of Mersing. It is on the other side of the river and it takes about 15-30 mins to walk across to where most of the restaurants are. Please note, that Mersing is one of the smaller towns in Malaysia and shops don't open till late.

If you are hungry, there is a 24 hours 7-11 convenience store across the street of the hotel, a Esso petrol station next to the hotel and just next to the hotel's right side, a mini food court next to the river.

If not, the hotel has a small restaurant in operation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road, or else, you will hear the traffic at night.
