Stayed there last weekend and will definitely go back again. We booked 2 deluxe room but at the eleventh hour, my mother in law refuse to stay with us at the hotel and we have already made full payment for the rooms. We paid a good RM430 for each room and without breakfast. Upon check in, we asked the receptionist if we could trade our 2 rooms in exchange for a room to the club/executives floor. They promised to look into it while we check in to our Deluxe King room in the meantime. We didn't put much hope to it initially. How delighted we were when informed that they will upgrade us to the Junior Suite with 2 complimentary breakfast. However, we are not entitle for the executive privileges. Well, it is our fault and they have all rights to reject our request in the first place. Therefore, we are grateful for the offer. The room was huge with spectacular view of the river. Bathroom were huge too but it doesn't come with a view like the one in Deluxe King.
The hotel is within walking distance to Topspot seafood restaurant. We went to stall 25 as suggested by most travellers but find the place overrated. The baked garlic+butter crayfish was fresh but tasteless. We only enjoy the midin and the sweet and sour chicken. The steam siakap was a little overcooked and the soy sauce lack of taste. We can easily find better seafood in West Malaysia. However, the price was really cheap. Do try out Kim Bay at the mall adjacent to the hotel. They serves good dim sum with suprisingly big portion. We expected bite size egg tarts for the price of RM3.80 for 2 but what we got were 2 regular size egg tart. Same goes with the rest of dimsum. Go try them!
The breakfast spread at Pullman was sufficient, taste wise was so so. Nothing spectacular but they have freshly brewed decaf! That makes my day. The staff at the counter was very pleasant and wears a smile all the time as well as the staff at pool area. The breakfast staff was very sulky, especially one lady with short hair, I wish she would have come closer to my table so that i could get her name. It was not a sight i would like to wake up to in the morning. However, they were all very friendly towards their white lady colleague whom i suppose is their supervisor. With all the smiles lighting up their faces. How ridiculous if one can do that to fellow to colleagues but not to customer who pay their salaries.
We slept so well, we would want to go back to Pullman for the comfortable bed and very lovely pillows!
