The first thing that took my breath away when I arrived was the hotel's great river view. I was also attracted by the hotel room rate, which was suitable for my partner and I since we were on a budget.

Outlook of the hotel was decent and neat, with glass panels to create a spacious feel. Hotel interior was average. Rooms were average too. Standard utilities were provided. Unfortunately we weren't able to get a room with a river view. Cleanliness was a little doubtful considering the fact that I saw a baby cockroach in the room.

Since we travelled via bike, the hotel's basement parking was much more assuring for us.

However, breakfast was terrible. Food tasted weird and questionable.

Wouldn't mind recommending anyone else if one is one a budget and has numbed taste buds.

Since most of the hotel had been fully booked, so I decided to stay in this hotel. I've took a family room. The rate was just RM170 during weekend compared to others same star hotel at Kuantan will cost RM150 for its superior.
When I open the door, waaahhh..........it is spacious. 'As big as' and 'as equipped as' a Junior Suite with the same star of hotel at Kuantan. The hotel was so clean and comfortable. The view was so great. Normally Family room will have a river view. In the morning, can saw fisherman boats moving in and out towards the sea.
This hotel is very near @ walking distance to the local bus station, food court (called Benteng) and opposite to a row of dried seafood shop.
The breakfast to me can be considered as superb for its class. Not so much choices but it is delicious. The nice river view from the restaurant makes me not bored to eat from 8 till 10 a.m.
Whenever you goes to Kuantan, don't forget to try their famous food. Most of it located at Tanjung Lumpur. You may find Thai's and Malay food, grilled fish and their must try food - sata.

I would say this hotel are affordable and provide all the basic needs without all the luxuries and comfort that we are looking for in any of the 5 star hotel in KL. Of course if you expect to the highest comfort and paying low price but this hotel is just average and I still prefer to stay here if have very tight budget. The breakfast have basic requirement and of course no other luxuries choices offer such as cheese platters, omellete station etc. Overall I would stay again because of the beautiful view facing the sea.

After finding myself stuck in Kuantan. I headed for a Megaview hotel to stay a few days.
I stayed on the 9th floor room 905, which had amazing views across the river. The only problem with the room was the shower curtain was missing and the overall bathroom, small. The satellite TV channels are limited, if you are an international traveller.
After getting frustrated with the TV, I headed for their lounge bar, Meranti Lounge, the barman and staff were extremely friendly and helpful and gave me advice on Kuantan and places of interest.
Breakfast is average, and get there early, as the pots do get cold.
Overall, I had a pleasant stay here, and I would recommend to Business and Famalies.
