“Convenient if you want to be in Kuah”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2010

Reasonably sized apartment styled units with basic furniture. Views nothing spectacular and I definately would not eat in the restaurant. Coveniently located in kuah and make your own breakfasts. Has basic kitchen with limited appliances. Can be noisy during school holidays.

The service appartment near to Kuah town. goog for shopper.
The breakfast on our first morning has limited chooice.
Fried noodle, fried rice, breads, butter, jam, baked bean, nuggets, tea but no coffee for first morning.
On 2nd morning we went to the malay Nasi Lemak stall near to Kondo Istana (same row). Their nasi lemak are very nice and special and very different from KL.
The swimming pool are dirty and water milky.
The 2dn bathroom got no water heater.
The master bedroom and 3rd bedroom aircon are not cold.
Aircon on 2nd room and living room are cold but very noisy.

We're supposed to check in at 2 pm however we were told our room wasn't ready yet hence we've to wait for another hour before checking in which is a waste of time. We had a three bedroom apartment and overall it's pretty decent except the toilets aren't very well maintained. if not it would have been more pleasant.
location wise it's pretty good since it's in the town unless you're looking for beach side apartment then this is not for you.
Staffs are quite good with attending requests.

Located at Kuah which is the town centre and its convenient to get anything you need. Reasonably priced but seriously there are better one out there at the same price. I think the property is good but due to poor maintenance and neglect, it become such a lousy condition. Forget about the breakfast....it's horrendous but luckily it's located near town centre. I only recommend this hotel only as a last resort.

A good apartment for those who does not expect much of luxury. It's comfortable and clean. The hotel could done better with their breakfast spread though, but hey, with the price of MYR8.80 per person, what can we expect??

  • Liked — Comfortable and very efficient for request of hair dryer and iron
  • Disliked — thin towels, not so good matress and pillows
  • Tips/Secrets — ask a unit with seaview, it's excellent...mine was unit 1103

I couldn't give it just one star because it wasn't horrible, but it was close. The condo was pretty big, but that didn't make up for all the shortcomings of this place.

The bathroom had mold and mildew in many places, including the shower curtain (which really needed to be replaced). There was no hot water when I took a shower (there's a button outside the bathroom that you have to press to turn on the hot water, but no directions on how to use it. Furniture was old in the bedroom, but actually nice in the living room. Sheets on the bed looked like they were permanently stained, and washing wouldn't help. The bottom sheet was just a top flat sheet turned sideways, so that left about 12 inches of the mattress exposed at the bottom where your feet go. 2 split air conditioning units, but every time you leave the apartment and take the key out of the slot, the circuit breakers have to be reset on each A/C unit.

There were ants all over the kitchen, including inside the refrigerator, despite the fact that there was no food for them to eat. The breakfast buffet was the worst I've ever seen in all my travels. The food consisted of oily rice, oily noodles, cut up hot dogs and white bread with no toaster. I took the bread up to my apartment and used the toaster there. You should know that this part of town is pretty boring, with no beach... only shops to go to. I would not stay here again.

  • Liked — The furniture in the living room
  • Disliked — In bad condition overall, and breakfast inedible
  • Tips/Secrets — look elsewhere
