This hotel is located steps away from a major shopping area and the lake which offers a Disney-like boat ride at night. First class accommodations, service, breakfast. Very safe to walk around lake or the shopping area at any time. Amazingly, on the side opposite the lake, from 8:30P for ten minutes, the hotel becomes a waterfall.

Stayed here for a few days.Comfortable spacious room They put on a Waterfall Show every evening at 8.30 p m . This was quite fascinating - the Waterfall was a display of water from the top of hotel , the full length of the hotel. The proximity of the hotel is close to the town centre with Amazing line of Street Food Stalls - A must for all Foodies!! Very little English spoken at the hotel but one can get by .

This is a very big hotel and it is adjacent to some very good shopping. In front is a big lake with a pagoda. There was a lot of tourists walking around the lake and going to visit the pagoda. We had a lovely room facing the lake and very spacious. Wifi was good. The A/C was not good as they seem to put of the A/C power off during the night. There is a lot of shopping close to the hotel and a big Irish Pub close by. Every Night at 08.30 hrs there is a huge waterfall from top of the hotel. This goes on for 10 minutes. Show less Room

Tip: Ask for a room facing the lake No.942

Great location - and bonus waterfall show! We stayed at this hotel as part of our Sinorama Holiday Tour. And WHAT A LOCATION! At night, we walked across the road to a beautifully lit up park on the river edge and looked straight across to 2 pagodas beautifully lit up! SUCH a pretty walk!

Our brief stay was very comfortable. There is a great gym and pool. The daily waterfall show is definitely worth a visit, it's just around the back. I've never seen anything like it. The location is great as well, within walking distance to some great local sights. I don't rate many hotels as 5s, but this one deserves its place!
