Weldon Hotel4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Since I was visiting a nearby company, this was a good location. Not sure if you would select this hotel (now called Weldon) if you didn't have some other reason to be in the area. Breakfast was okay - worst coffee I have ever had however. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Had lunch here with the hosts from the company I was visiting. It was pretty good - but I am not a huge fan of Chinese food - so in many ways you can take that as a great review. I do plan on staying here when I make future visits.
Impressive hotel, but staff is not very accomodating, not at reception, nor at the restaurants. Ambition in design and interior, well equipped and comfortable, large rooms (with sometimes very slow WLAN) clearly meets 5* expectations. However, it is the people that could give the place a warm atmosphere. That´s where the place fails. No lunch/dining options close to the hotel. Restaurants buffet resp. menu offers a reasonable choice.But you should keep your expectations moderate. Breakfast is pretty good though.
This hotel is located in the industrial area about 50km from the Guangzhou airport. It is over an hour by car to the city. It is definitely a hotel for travellers with business in the area, and not a place to stay to see the sights. The hotel itself is very blingy. All floor to ceiling marble with huge columns, chandeliers and gilded gold wall features. Really not my thing but it’s not shabby I guess. The reception area is huge with a lobby bar and 2 wings within the main building. Check in was relatively painless, but I experienced a problem with the lock on the door to my room which persisted for my entire stay. The card reader was faulty and to get into my room every time was an exercise of extreme patience. I tried getting several key cards recoded but no luck. The room I got was huge, the bathroom was just as large. I’ve never seen a larger shower area or bath tub before. Amenities are pretty good, the usual shampoo and body wash etc, but they also provide toothbrushes, combs, shaving kits, mouth wash. Bed is very good, a little hard for me but still a really good bed. Because of the location of the hotel, the room is really quiet. Housekeeping staff are very efficient, the lady who looked after my room was great. Laundry service is fast and good. Wifi was terrible. Some nights I couldn't get any signal. There is a small gym onsite with 2 treadmills, cross trainers, free weights etc. Enough to keep you busy. There is also a pool for the warmer months. My biggest gripe is the food. Because the hotel is not close to anything and the last thing I wanted to do after a long day at work was to traipse around looking for something to eat, I ate every meal at the hotel. The buffet selection is quite small and unless you have a local palate I think you would struggle. I tried some ala carte meals as well but they were also average at best. I also tried the other restaurant in the main tower and thought the food was just ok. Room service was extremely fast though. Mini bar very basic. I’m glad I brought my own coffee, tea and packet soups this trip. All in all, it’s a safe, clean, comfortable hotel. I’d stay here again if I ever had business in the area. If they can improve the food it would deserve one more star in my rating.
Stayed there twice this past month and it was excellent. When you arrive at the lobby you will immediately see the magnificent façade of the hotel. And it does not end at the lobby. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well organized. Another plus is the size of the bath tub. It was huge. The hotel has four buildings and in the middle is the pool and the garden with a touch of European inspiration. They also have a gym and spa areas. they also rent out bicycles in case you want to take a look at the scenery. there was a park nearby but I wasn't able to go there since I was there for weekdays and I had to go the some business meetings. The food was excellent. They also have a variety of food choices for breakfast and dinner. But most importantly, my stay there was excellent thanks to the staff. this is definitely a recommended hotel. thumbs up.
Service is great and rooms are large and relatively comfortable. Plugs for chargers near bed put behind bed tables which you have to move to get access. Breakfast buffet is not more than worth Max. 1 star. They have bread but no butter . they have a very little amount of cheese but not for bread. We are in Guangdong the dim sum home and heaven but not here. Location for going to area is fine but other than hotel not much else to do here.
I have been to this hotel earlier for lunch and dinner during my business travels. However, this is my first stay in the hotel. I stayed in room A609 for 4 nights/5 days. Check-in was very quick and entry to the hotel is easy. Our company chose this as the hotel is very near to our office. Although the location is great for a biz travel, it is very isolated for post work fun/dinner. The nearest reasonable place is the Phoenix City, where several restos and shops are available. The hotel has several restos and facilities that will help you unwind post work, that is if you do have time. My room was great- fully carpeted, big flat tv, HUGE walk-in dresser, very comfy "tiltable" bed, complete toiletries supplies. double bathtub, great pressure water in shower among others....AMAZING!!!! Breakfast is awesome! Continental to local chinese...hmmm even japanese rolls and sushi for your wants. I love the place! i'm sure you will do too! click "helpful" below, please.
stayed 4 nights here while attending the Canton fair. Great hotel with great facilities. Restaurant had a good buffet dinner and breakfast. we also ate in the Tepanyaki restaurant which was very good. I probably wouldn't stay here gain due to the location. it is miles away from anything with nothing nearby and the nearest town being half an hour away by taxi if you can get one. there is a airport bus that goes past the front door.
A very nice hotel and a decent price. But way too far out of the city. Takes more then an hour to go to the city and difficult to return to the hotel as most taxi's will refuse to bring you to this area as they will most likely not get a returning customer. Facilities are good with a swimming pool and a gym.
I have stayed here several times now when on business and always found it to be excellent. Good facilities, excellent and large rooms and always quiet. Staff have better than usual English skills from my experience and always attentive. Also very good value in my experience. Would highly recommend staying in this hotel if travelling and staying in this area on business.
If you have business in this location I will suggest you consider this hotel, probably the best in the area abd also on its class. Rooms are very comfortable, price is reasonable and food at their restaurants are really good. I won't go anywhere else.
