Arrived for six day stay on coach from Singapore. Short taxi journey (20 ringgit) from Melaka Sentral. We booked Equator Club room which we felt was well worth the extra £20 per night for all day tea/coffee, free wifi, quiet breakfast and two hour drinks and snacks each evening, the room is also very large with lounge area.
The pool area is well kept with plenty of loungers and tables and good size kiddie pool. We ate at the Seri Nyonya restaurant which was excellent and also did the short cookery course which we enjoyed.
We had two breakfasts in the main breakfast area which is very busy but good choice of food, we took our other breakfasts in the Equator Club, much quieter, some hot dishes and eggs to order.
The location is the best for shopping, being a few minutes walk from most malls, Jonker Walk is a pleasant 20 minute stroll past the museum quarter but really only comes alive at weekends.
We were very happy with our stay, no problems, no surprises.
Beautiful hotel which is like entering another time. Although this hotel is a little further away from the main area (jonker Walk etc) of Malacca it is worth the trouble - you can walk along the river (about 30 minutes) or take the ferry.
Staff were exceptional, they made everyone feel special and nothing was too troublesome for them. We even had one staff member give us her personal email when we needed to send a form to be printed out.
every detail was perfect, service exemplary, even loved the cutlery. Everyone must try the High Tea

I stayed a couple of night at Galileo guesthouse. My room was small, with no window on the outside, but clean and comfortable. It's located in the middle of the very pleasant old chinatown, 5 minutes from the city bus top. The owner was very helpful and nice. Wifi was working properly.
Just a very minor annoyance and suggestion: When I arrived, the door was locked with a sign "out for lunch" and a phone number that I couldn't reach. I waited for a while before realizing he was inside. Maybe he could add a bell, and change the sign or put a time where he expects to be back.
