Hotel very old. One of 2 lifts working. Waiting staff worst of lot except for one or two. Food??? Nothing is good except the scrambled eggs which were cooked on-the-spot. Carpark? Gotto cross a road to the other block where car was. This is the ONLY one of all the hotels that is this bad

Not living up to the Holiday Inn Name

Not very happy as it does not live up to the name of being a holiday inn group. The rooms were good, but amenities were lacking. And not refreshed. Stayed for 3 days and they did not bothered to change or replace the soap of all thing. Took 2 rooms. One room had a welcome basket of fruits, and one did not. Really don't understand that as there is a certain operation procedure the housekeeping would need to follow. One room had toothbrushes, and one did not.. When asked about it, their response was that it had to be to requested. For the price of a night and the name of the hotel, never expected this kind of issues.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Central location in Batu Ferringhi. Nice restaurant and breakfast was very good. The H-Inn people try hard to make you welcome. We ate at the restaurant both nights and the food and setting were excellent. Lunch by the pool was also nice. The rooms are old but functional and the bed was good. The gym is quite good as are the pool and lounges. We went there to play tennis based on the Expedia photos but unfortunately they were extremely misleading. The courts were in a shocking state. To their credit, the staff did what they could to make the courts playable with a makeshift repair of the net and removing the surface debris.

Average is above average 7/10.

The staffs are friendly, the food is okay. The playing facilities are good. But, there is 1 lift broke down out of 2. The room facilities are too old. Average is above average 7/10.
