We stayed in the Majestic for three nights and were very impressed with the quliaty of hotel and staff. The public areas in the old house are well looked after cool and relaxing.

All the staff in the hotel were very friendly and service was attentive without being overbearing - On check-in we were shown to our room and left with some chinese tea which was a nice touch and very well presented.

There is a small swimming pool and nice modern gym positioned between the old house and the new block, all well tended and inviting - maybe on the best for sun worshipers due to the various shadows from the surrounding building.

Our room was well finished, I was a little sceptical about the bathroom sperated by sliding shutters, but is wasn't a problem in the slightest - the big free standing bath was impressive. Our room faced towards the sea looking out over the town, providing a great sunset veiw.

Location wise the hotel is a bit out of the centre of town, but is a very plesant walk along the river, or if you are feeling lazy there is a frequent boat service that chugs up and down the river.

We also stayed in the sister hotel in the Cameron Highlands.

Room Tip: Sea/town views are worth asking for, great sunsets.

Stayed overnight at the hotel with the initial impression of sleeping in the heritage premise but it was not the case. The rooms are located in the new block behind the heritage building, which was used to house the restaurant, bar, library and the lobby only. We were greeted by the friendly staff wherever we went in the hotel compound. Service was prompt from check-in till check-out except at The Mansion Restaurant. I pre-ordered my vegetarian meals with the hotel but somehow when it's time for meal, the waiter & waitress did not seem to know how to handle my pre-order. Apparently, the hotel did not have printed food menu for the vegetarians. Dinner was still okay as the Guest Liaison Officer was present to manage it for me. However, the breakfast was slow until the restaurant captain/manager appeared to take our order. The semi-buffet style breakfast was not impressive at all. Very limited choices for big eaters. Cooked/hot dishes were even more pathetic. Taste rather bland. However, they charged RM70 per pax which was rather overpriced.
I'd give compliments to the room cleanliness and decorations. Comfy bed with fine touches such as bath salt sachet, luxurious bath tub and turn-down service were great! The day bed was another commendable feature of the room. The room came with more than 30 TV channels to choose from. I was given two conncting rooms which comprised a Deluxe King with a Twin bed configuration. However, the Twin room was too near to the adjacent hospital building with some noise in the early morning.
Hotel location is rather hidden by the hospital, especially the car park. We entered the hotel from the backyard most of the time. It's not so near to Jonker Street, the Red House or A Farmosa tourist spots. Unless one travels by car, it's be a long walk in view of the busy traffic and narrow pedestrian walkways in Malacca town.
Generally, I think the hotel need to re-price its offering for room & food to be more competitive among the 5-star resorts. The hotels is good for relaxation and honeymooners but be prepared to pay for the price!

Room Tip: Get a room facing the Melaka river but not the connecting room at the corner of the building, which...

The hotel staff were extremely friendly and the walking tour with Chew is a must - she made the stay well worth it. Generally everything about the hotel was good, and there were some nice touches such as the free local snacks scattered throughout.

However the one major complaint was that whenever a neighboring room was filling the standalone bathtub with water, the sound of the pipes was extremely loud.

Room Tip: The river views are nice, but there's a lot of construction going on for the next few years so i...

We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Majestic. The hotel was really lovely with very friendly staff. I was initially concerned that the bedrooms would be a disappointment as they are in the modern section of the hotel. However they were fantastic with decor which fits in with the ambience and decor of the older part of the hotel. The hotel was situated about 20 minutes from the centre facing the river and the Kampong. I recommend walking along the river to the centre. It was great to stroll along the river watching the boats and looking at the colourful buildings on the way.
Overall a great weekend retreat.
