    Fantastic location. Good value.

    Service provided is below expectation. Requested for a bucket of ice and did not arrive after an hour although repeated calls were made. When arrived, the staff shoved the ice bucket to me demonstrating his unhappiness and without a word of apology.

    Good sea view of the room

    hotel staff at the checkin counter was rude. Room was not ready yet at 2pm for check-in.

    Very good

    The food at the hotel (I had room service) was good. I like the decor and ambience of the coffee house.

    The bathroom was a bit difficult to open and close due to misalignment (quite common for these type of doors). Perhaps would have been better to install easier to use door types. The broadband internet was not working in my hotel room, therefore I had to use the expensive wireless internet in the lobby. The price of the wireless internet is very expensive compared to other 5hotels I have stayed in.

    Fabulous

    The Fitness center. Positioned such that I can see what's going on in the swim pool!i

    Walking from the carpark to the hotel (separate)in the rain makes me wet

    i always come for short business trip. this is 2nd time thistle jb but many times during hyatt name. however, the reception didnt know i have been there before and requested me to fill in the form. it will be nice to hear "welcome back". i like beef bacon for breakfast but the bread varieties are too few. beef bacon should be available everytime i come. concierge was not seen this time to open door. the rate is just nice at high side as the decor not really business luxury. its in between. thistle PD is very family but quite luxury look. suggest you add more potted plants at lobby, its too bare at present. overall, i am happy. room service is fast when i asked for the paper which was not delivered to me. tq.

    as above. and should give some kind of priviledge to those who have been there such as special rate, fruit basket etc..

    Mutalib, Syed Jamil, Hashim, and Nana are the assets of the hotel. Overall, Thistle JB is average. But they (above) make my stay worth the price because we upgrade our room to Deluxe Sea view.

    Communication, sense of urgency, delegation must be instilled from top to bottom. The chef should not be cleaning buffet area...

    Superb

    The view

    the carpark is not sheltered all the way to the hotel and the shelter at the hotel itself is too small. Not enough to provide shelter during heavy rain with strong wind.
