Friendly staff combined with a junior suite overlooking the river, made for a very pleasant stay. Location is excellent. Walking along the river bank from the hotel is quite nice with many little handicraft stalls and hawker food places. It does have a nice atmosphere, as local residents tend to spend time relaxing by the river too. Several eating options...

Last month I stayed for six nights at The Grand Margherita. The hotel is situated on Riverside which is very scenic and a lovely stroll day or night. There are many points along the river where you can take a ferry across the river to do some exploring. Rooms are large and comfortable although a little tired looking especially the...

For the price, this place simply cannot be beaten. Location, facilities, staff are all great. The buffet breakfast is extensive and the best I've seen in Malaysia to date. Great stuff. Don't think, just book!

I really appreciate our staying at Grand Margherita Hotel. I'd like to stress the ability of management to answer in a timely and proper way to our needs. As improving aspect i'd like to suggest to speed up check-in/check-out procedures. In any case it is one of the best hotel we got during our holiday in Malaysia!
