“Great Hotel for a short stay”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Was supposed to be in Malacca for only 2 nights, ended up extending for another night cos the hotel was just so wonderful.

Service was fantastic, no complains there, room was excellent, no complains at all. Only issues were the breakfast selection... food served was cold, expected better. Pool was a tad small, but guess not really the hotel for a relaxation by the pool. Hotel has a private carpark with 24hrs security, so driving your own car isn't an issue.

Overall hotel is definitely recommended.

We visited Melaka for just two nights, and were impressed by this hotel. Service is very personal, rooms look great; the entire hotel experience is just fantastic.
Two nights in Melaka was enough for us, but for as far as the hotel we wished we would have stayed longer

My wife and I booked our accommodation at the Majestic, albeit only for two nights, because it scored so highly in tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed at all. I don't think we've ever met such friendly and accommodating staff. We particularly noticed the 'little things' - for example, we arrived a little late for lunch in the restaurant, but no bother, it was served to us in the library instead. We staggered in exhausted after a morning's walk in 32 degree heat and were greeted at the door with cold towels and iced water. Boy, were they appreciated! Our room was excellent with just about every comfort you could wish for - including a bed so wide you needed to take a cut lunch to get from one side to the other. Meals were top class, lots of choice and superbly cooked, wine wasn't cheap but it generally isn't throughout Asia. To cap things off for us, evening meals were accompanied by gorgeous, easy listening background music played by a very talented young Chinese pianist by the name of Summer.
And for a 5 star hotel (I think I'm right in saying that?) room charges were very reasonable indeed. Many thanks to the staff of the Majestic for a fabulous stay.

Due to the good experience the first time around in 2010, we decided to come back a second time in April 2012 for 2 nights. The moment we stepped through the door, we felt welcomed. Throughout our stay, the staff remembered our names. The room was great and we really enjoyed the turn-down service and looked forward to the kuehs left in our room each evening. Although we initially booked a spa package - suam suam panas , later in the evening, we noticed that there was an ongoing for ala carte items and a free hair spa for the good friday weekend. Our request to opt for something else was quickly met although we were not sure why we were not recommended the cheaper option. Nonetheless, the spa was heavenly! The hair spa was very relaxing, and the gula melaka scrub was an interesting though sticky experience.

Room Tip: Pick a higher floor for a view overlooking the river

This weekend gone, I stayed at the beautiful Majestic at the request of my friend who had raved about it and I have to say that I was totally charmed by the sheer attention to details in all aspects of modern hospitality! I could find no fault and I must add that there in-house historian (Peck Choo) is joy! Her guided walked wowed us and she went the extra mile to give us all the local insights. We tried the special Nonya dishes on the hotel menu and they were delicious! I would visit again and stay at the Majestic.

Was here for a weekend getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Missed the turning to the parking area because we set gps to hotel instead of hotel carpark.
The hotel reception on arrival was warm and friendly. Hotel lobby was charming.
Rooms were a very nicely decorated and felt clean. Good comfortable beds. Welcome tea and kuih (cakes) were delicious.
Breakfast was not too impressive. Could probably have gotten something a lot better (and cheaper) outside the hotel.
Opted to walk to Jonker st from the hotel. Was a good 20 min walk. But there are nice quaint shops along the way to keep it interesting. Look out for traffic and holes along pavement.

My second stay in this hotel. The prupose of both trips has been business.
Classic entrance, welcoming staff and spacious, very comfortable rooms. Add to that the great friendly attitude by everyone in the staff and what you get is a very positive experience. Will return.
