“Central location, large room”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Great location if you want quick access to the shops and a wide choice of food places - stalls, cafes, local restaurants. Ming Cafe etc. The view out over the river and sea is pleasant. The room I had was large and the bed massive and comfortable with lots of pillows. The hotel is getting a bit worn but was clean and the linens, towels etc were good. Free wifi was a bit ordinary. It only worked in my room if I sat right beside the entry door! Plenty of choice at breakfast but a fairly odd mix of dishes available, and tables could have been cleared a bit more often. Reception staff and door staff were friendly and efficient. Overall, good value and a nice enough hotel for a short stay.

This review is about the chinese restaurant, located at level 4 of the building.

The restaurant was well know in the early days, but during the last visit with my family member is was totally a disaster!

Why i say so, its becauae we had pre book the food for the dinner and we brought a fish for steam.

When enter the restaurant, first impression was the temperature was warm! I asked the employees of the restaurant, what's wrong with the air con. They say just turn on and i ask after a few minutes or even after 10-15 minutes.

They come and inform, something when wrong with the centralized aircon system, yet the person in charge of the restaurant was very kind whereby they bring a stand fan, which is a value added services from them.

Now get to the food, the food was average at the first few dish. But when come to the fish, they prepared the fish in a wrong way, whereby we bring the fish for steam and they deep fried it ( sweet and sour ) and the worst part is they ( kitchen employee ) didn't even clean the fish and just dump into the oil! Could you believe this!? This happen to a 3-4 star hotel! The fish was never in a proper cleaning process before cook!

And the personal in charge say it will not be charge, but the fish is just a fish. But we bought it from the market fresh and it's not cheap, and the fish just wasted because of the improper preparation but the kitcheb department.

And the next is the bean curd, cook in clappot style, I'm the person where eat some metal strings...could you imagine? And they say will not be charge. Its not about charging or not charging, we want improvement! But its okey, we can complaint much. As local mentality, we dont complain much but for me i don't really care if the kitchen add additional stuff into the food.

The last is the mix vege, we ordered cooked with broccoli but they missout the broccoli, i mean its really getting over edge!

Overall, they say they have function, and the quality...and apologize to us.

This review basically reflect that they are under poor management and monitoring system.

And thia will not be the last time I'm going to Mega Hotel, Lotus Court. Because i know they will improve.

Thank you for reading.

I stayed at this hotel three years ago and enjoyed the experience ,therefore on this visit I stayed again.
The location is great, right in the centre of town.
The price is good value and the staff were all very good.
Unfortunately, compared to last visit the decor is a little tired ,worn carpet,old fittings,etc.It gives the impression that the owners have been loathe to spend any money other than the lobby area.
The food at breakfast was just ok but not up to usual Malaysian standards.
I would still consider staying there again but have been spoiled by the high standard of other hotels I have used in Malaysia.

I have no complaints with the room or the hotel really as everything seems standard. Spacious rooms, good view, perfect location. I was not just happy with how the food is prepared. I ordered food for room service twice and i must the 2nd time really turned me off. I think the chef needs a word for not using fresh ingredients. I mean the prawn they served with my Laksa was really off. Even there not very good selections for breakfast.

My wife and I stayed three nights at Mega Hotel in Miri. The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre with lots of eating places within walking distance of the hotel. Our room was large and comfortably furnished. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of cuisine. I would recommend this hotel to others without hesitation.

the room is spacious, the decor is very nice too. my room also has a very excellent view. location is quite good. breakfast buffet is ok-they even served nasi minyak and mutton curry which is actually taste so good. i heard some kind of spooky story about this hotel before i came but thank god nothing happen. guess it was just rumors after all. being a frequent traveler which often have to stay on my own, i kid you not i actually DO have an experience of something like "that" in previous hotel i had been. i had a very comfortable stay so i say i will definitely come back to this hotel whenever i visit Miri again.

Room Tip: higher floor might offer more excellent view
