“Comfort with a touch of luxury”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Very friendly staff and a warm welcome. The rooms are fabulous with the best bathtub I've ever encountered. The beds were very comfortable and an excellent location close to the river. Internet access in the room with free wifi in the public rooms. We tried the afternoon tea which was different, but tasty. Only problem was they had run out of cream for the scone, so extra jam was given, which wasn't really a suitable substitue. The breakfast was very good with a good choice of hot dishes to order. Even the beef bacon and chicken sausage were good. The pool area while a little on the small size was adequate to cool down in after a day exploring the attractions. Also free car parking to the side of the hotel.

As previous reviewers have mentioned, the service was top notch and they handled a central aircon breakdown situation well (the whole floor had no air conditioning for at least 4-5 hrs). It was about 9pm at night and the room we were in was stuffy to say the least.

The front desk managed to switch rooms for us (could have been faster...took them close to an hour to move us) and everything worked well in the new room (although the lobby had 2 or 3 disgruntled couples milling around waiting for the air conditioning to be fixed).

The room is cosy enough, love the toilet area, no fancy gadgets though (if that matters to you).

The pool is a good enough size for an afternoon dip and had no more than 2-3 people using it while we were there.

Friendly greetings from all staff everywhere we went.

The complimentary city walking tour is worth the effort. The lady who brought us on the walk was knowledgeable and had many interesting stories to tell. Sheds new light on this historic city. :)

Spent a delightful couple of nights here. The hotel is beautiful and the service is excellent. With free wifi and delicious peanut cookies in the lobby, we spent time relaxing in the library to recharge after long days of sightseeing. It is about 15 minutes by foot to the centre or a short boat ride away. The rooms are beautifully decorated too.

Lovely hotel with very attentive staff. The only downer was the other guests who were noisy and inconsiderate of the effect they were having on others. The space is beautiful - but polished floorboard and high ceilings make the loud Chinese conversations reverberate. Might be best to stay here when it's not Chinese new year. The spa was lovely and serene. I had the Malay massage. Divine.

This is my 3rd time patronizing The Majestic, Malacca.
I would like to summarize by saying... It is not just because of the hardware they have, this is all about the people who is making it happen at The Majestic - The Software itself!!!
Impeccable Service!
Keep up the good job Mr. Ben & Team!

* The spa is a must to do!

Room Tip: So far, any room is a good room to me at the Majestic. Will update if there should be any preference...

Overall feel was appropriate for a boutique hotel. Furniture and fixtures had nice traditional touches that reflects the settings of a traditional Malacca home. Complimentary tidbits in the lobby were appetizing.

The new block (where all hotel rooms are located) has a modern touch to it. Bed was exceptionally comfortable though the TV could have been a little larger. Bathroom was great apart from the flooding and overflow of water from the shower.

Service was ok; staff were friendly however, there was nothing outstanding. Food at the restaurant was rather expensive. There are decent local food options within 5-10 minutes walking distance.

Overall experience was good.
