8/10 Very good

1. The hotel driveway was nice and the staffs were polite and welcoming. 2. The hotel compound and the facing of the rooms were nice. 3. Our room was beside the meeting room and it got noisy when they loitered outside the meeting room or walking passed. 4. The lighting of the room was very dim and we often turn on our handphone light to look for things in our luggages. 5. The room looked clean on the surface but it was not. The was a cockroach on the platform bed and we realised both of us had insect/bed bites on our legs and hands the next day. 6. The room was poorly designed and not functional. We had to take a big step up to the platform bed and a big step down to use the basin. From the basin, we had to take a step up and a step down to use the WC. Imagine how many times we had to do that in a day. 7. There wasn’t even enough place to put the hand soap, cups to brush teeth on the basin area so it was placed on the floor when we check-in. 8. The restaurant served good famous local food but the design of the restaurant was a flaw. We had to climb stairs to get to the food area and down to your dining table. We witnessed a child tripped and fell on the stairs and broke the plate. 9. This hotel is not child and elderly friendly.
