Our first visit to Malaysia started at Majestic Malacca, and it couldn't have been better. The manager Ben Quah and his entire staff were so welcoming and the hotel is ideally placed to explore Malacca. We enjoyed the knowledgable city tour, outstanding breakfasts, good lunch, the superb Spa, refreshing pool, and the well equipped gym. The front desk staff were...

This is a beautiful old restored Chinese mansion on the riverfront. The spacious hotel suites look like something out of a film set with a huge king size teak four poster bed, antique furniture and lamps, wooden shutters, a day couch overlooking the balcony, and a lovely bathroom including a large silver clawed slipper bath and luxurious toiletries. We were...

Room was ok. Nothing special. Clean, yes. Had no king available so had two single beds. Was my wife and I's 30th anniversary so that was a bummer. Paid MR800 each night which was over-priced, considering breakfast was only included on the Monday morning and not on the Sunday. Staff were nice. Air-con was insufficient to adequately cool the room....

I love this hotel. Period. This is how to travel -- style, ambiance, service, décor, professionalism. Impeccable. And with that sweet Malaysian smile. You cannot go wrong. I will be rebooking for next year. C'est la classe.

Celeb chef Melba has takenover the concept of the restaurant to bring her family's style of cooking to the public. The interior is beautiful, an old Chinese mansion turned boutique hotel. The food in the restaurant matches the interior, sophisticated and delicious. I can still taste the Malacca Laksa! Definitely visit if you're looking for a special, quiet night away...

The hotel is situated close to the city area, where most of the tourist attractions are. I chose this hotel because of its location and also because of its uniqueness as seen from the introductory pictures. The main lobby of the hotel is actually a 2-storey house (previously a landed property which was eventually converted) with the 10-storey hotel structure...

The General Manager and Nick were very welcoming, staff were attentive. Lovely room on the 9th floor, view would have been good save for the large buildings and building site in front but that's not their fault! Room very comfortable with bathroom partitioned off by louvre doors. Fruit and evening treats in the room, biscuits and sweets in the lobby....

The Majestic is a lovely hotel situated very conveniently in Malacca. Our room was great - comfy bed, excellent bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was where they seem to have run out of some vital ingredients - for cocktails, some items from the breakfast menu.

Loved the whole experience of staying in this colonial hotel. The staff were all friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. It was lovely to be greeted so warmly by the staff every time we returned to the hotel.The spacious and elegant rooms were serviced twice daily, and the bath products were very luxurious.
