Poor Maintenance on the swimming pool,broken tiles, algae build up on tiles,just disgusting.. Could not swim with the low hygiene on pool...No outside food allowed,not even chips,drinks..Management should place signage to advise guest..Foreign staff,who could hardly speak simple English trying to inform us not to bring outside snacks...Thats infair..
Stayed here for one night during Chinese New Year. What we loved was the ample amount of activities at the resort and loved the pool! Breakfast buffet spread was really good. And they had a lovely fireworks display on the eve of Chinese New Year right in the middle of the resort. However, one drawback. There was an incident where the housekeeping staff decided to enter the room with the master key as i didn't answer our doorbell. the staff rang the bell twice and as I was in the shower, I didn't answer the door. The staff then decided it was okay to use the master key and unlock the door and I had to yell for that person to please stay out. Although the intention was to pass me the room doormat, but they should not have done that. Maybe call us to get the doormat from them since I didn't answer the door or leave it at the door.
This is the second time i have stayed here. The hotel and its'surrouding area is quite nice. i especially enjoyed the swimming pool and beach area. However, thehotel management have to improve the room cleanliness and maintain the facilities i.e. toilet and aircond as this is not up to par with the hotel's ratings. The first time i stayed these facilities was not properly maintained.
Was there in early Dec. Arrived late in the evening and check in was smooth. Had reserved sea view rooms on level 6 and love it. Had been here almost 10 years back (formerly Guo Man resort) and the place has been refurbished. Not exactly 5 star but clean enough for a family resort. Pool was busy over the weekend and the slides at the kiddy pool were overcrowded and cold ( rainy). Breakfast was fine but don't expect anything fancy. Was overall enjoyable though the road trip from Singapore was long.
Checked in last week with my husband for short break during weekend. Receptionist gives us Twin Bed Room at first, however they changed me to King Size Bed and its highly appreciated. The breakfast buffet was fantastic! Thumbs up for the taste and the food quality. However, room cleanliness not up to our expectations. Sticky and dusty floor when we came in, toilet bowl leaking, glass door of the shower room was very dirty same goes with the floor. I suggested to scrub the toilet and also the shower room. Housekeeping need to inspect the room properly before release those room. Definitely need some improvement, and suggestion to have comment card in the room.
Brought the wife and 2 kids for a short weekend getaway here. Everybody enjoyed themselves with the facilities and activities. Loved especially the night activities. Will be back again next time. Would highly recommend.
I should have read the review here before I check in this hotel. I thought I could have the 5 star rated service but it turns out a disaster 2 star business. 1 hour to check in and the worst part is the electric on and off. Called the front desk but they kept saying the technician is on their way. This is the 1st and last I stay.
Stayed at Thistle for 1 night for a short holiday. It was worth the money spent. I think they have upgraded their hotel as there were several comments to do so. The restaurants in the hotel are not recommended though as the it was a bit pricey and not taste was just okay. It is better to venture our for some Chinese seafood restaurant. Overall the Hotel was great.
This was a bitter experience for a seasoned traveller and reviewer like me. We paid top dollars equivalent to a 5 star hotel stay in Kuala Lumpur. They gave us a room with dust and dirt on the floor, which we quickly asked them to vacuum. 2 hours after we checked in, water started pouring from the ceiling outside the bathroom. We changed room but later that night, when we showered, the new room had curtains that were mouldy and dirty; the shower caps were missing. Worse still, my daughter checked in into the room next to our original room and she had to move too as flakes of paint started coming off the ceiling; we think a precursor to the spread of the flooding from the first room. My point is that they should have known there were problems in the first room. Why did they check us in there? I do know that the hotel is 20 years old and obviously, the owners have not spend a single cent in upgrading - shame on you. You have not done justice to your staff, who were all very friendly and gave their best service with a smile all round. Your breakfast was very good value for the price. Your pool, you beach setting all deserved better support from owner/management for all the guests to enjoy. My other complaint was that the beef in the beef burger was underdone. This must never happen again due to danger of food poisoning. They were a number of nice touches such as a fruit bowl delivered to your room at night. But overall, it will be wrong of me to recommend this place to any of my TA mates. Good luck in finding another place worthy of the price you pay. This place is scandalous. Stay away !!
I just check in for 1 night. My feedback is Room not hygiene, Electric Safety Box Error, wardrobe sliding problem, TV remote and the worst part is the bath room water leaking. The water leak till outside outside foyer! Call to Front Office, Operator and waited whole night no respond at all!!! Call multiple times still no respond! This is what u call a 5 star hotel! Gimme a break! I have no interest checking in this "Thistle Port Dickson" anymore! Not worth at all!!!
