“OKAY I GUESS”
Reviewed 27 December 2009

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...

I stayed in this hotel having a weekend-trip to Miri, flying from and To Singapore. This hotel was recommended bij my local contact as one of the three places to stay (Marriot and Mega also mentioned). The hotel is situated next to local bar-street area. The rooms were good, soft bed, clean; the shower was not separate but situated in the bathtub. The breakfast is basic in accordance with Western buffet. Would stay here next time again.

Stayed here for a night after visiting the Niah caves. The hotel was ideal, it was cheap the rooms were spacious + clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and efficient. There was also a gym which included all the basic equipment + free weights and a swimming pool which was a decent size to swim in. There was also a jacuzzi, suana and steam room free to all hotel guests. all the facilities were well maintained.
The location was close to a number of bars and clubs so ideal for nights out. the hotel also contained a couple of bars and dining areas. the bars were generally quiet, the dining facilities were outstanding.

Stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip and found it to be a good value hotel. From the outside its orangy pink colour might not be to everyones taste but once inside the spacious lobby the decor is more traditional. The rooms are spacious and clean although perhaps they could do with some updating of the decor. King size bed, desk and chair, TV with cable channels, 2 additional armchairs and a small table are well set out in the space. Bathroom with shower over the bath is also of a good size and toiletries are supplied. There is a fridge and mini-bar but it's very expensive in comparison to the prices outside the hotel although still very cheap to any Western visitors. There is also free Internet connection in every room should you have a laptop with you.

The restaurant on the ground floor has a limited choice of menu but the food is nicely presented and tastes good. On the first floor there is a Chinese Restaurant and in my opinion it is the better of the 2 outlets. Breakfast is in the larger main restaurant and has a mixture of eastern and western choices available.

Near to the hotel is what is termed an entertainment area and a large supermarket / department store. There are lots of bars and eating places nearby and all in alI had a very good time while staying here.

  • Liked — Free Internet connection
  • Disliked — Decor starting to look a little tired in my room
  • Tips/Secrets — Go to all the local bars where there is some fun nightlife
