We wanted to fully utilize the complimentary stay from Gourmet Collection before its expiry date, so we made a quick booking with Holiday Inn, Melaka.
One automatically gets a positive impression
from the Concierge staff who takes the initiative and makes the extra effort to walk across the parking lot to greet us and get our luggage the moment we arrived.
The rooms were more spacious than we had expected, and although the view may not have been too attractive, the room itself was clean and comfortable.
Food was good and there were many varieties. The buffet breakfast at Es-sence kitchen was interesting as there were different types of breads/cakes (which were not common in many other hotels). The dinner at the Italian restaurant, Sirocco, was splendid. Price was rather reasonable and one cannot help but be intrigued by the pizza oven near the sitting area. One particular staff, Mr. Nazim, was very patient with our orders and offered great recommendations to utilize our dining vouchers.
The infinity pool was not too bad, and the area in general is quite windy. There is also a ping-pong table available.
On the whole, it was a good stay. [Less]
