went to miri with my family on the 23rd of dec. went there without making prior arrangement for hotel accomodation. drove around and came across the grand palace hotel offering a two days and i night accomodation package for m$ 198 nett. thought it was quite cheap. so i took the promotional package offered and got two rooms right away. checked out at 5.30 pm the next day. was charged for an extra m$100 per room!!! i was flabbergasted..i thought when it said promotional 2 days and i night accomodation .. the day is from 0600 to 1800 that is a full day time to my thinking!!!! only then i realised that it was only a promotional gimmick. the time of check in and check out are still the usual standard time... that is check in at 1200 and check out at 1300. i felt cheated...!!!!!!!!
the service and everything else seemed okay,, the hotel have gym and swimming pool... the thread mills though there are a few.. some of them were not working properly.. but the hotel is not smoke free.. the sauna was very slow to heat up.. and by the time the alocated time was up.. i sweat very little...
also i could not stand the smell of tobacco wafting towards my dining table in the no smoking part of the restaurant... the waitress was apologetic though.. but there was nothing she could do...since i was with kids.. my wife and i decided to leave the restaurant and have our dinner somewhere else...
