“great mix of old and new”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

We loved the old-style reception and library of the Majestic - very classy, and a great place to chill out or have lunch or a drink.

But it was also nice to go into our room in the new wing, with its rain shower and free broadband.

Best of both worlds, in fact.

One point for improvement: the breakfast buffet is good quality but low on choice.

Also it is worth noting that the hotel is not right in the most interesting part of Melaka. You can walk to the historic centre in 15-20 minutes, though in the heat that can be tiresome. Or take a taxi, for 15 ringit. The Casa del Rio seems to be an attractive hotel much closer to the main sightseeing and shopping area.

On the last leg of our Malaysian road trip, we decided to pamper ourselves at The Majestic and we were not disappointed. Wonderful service with attentive and obviously well-trained staff. Great clean classic rooms. Kids loved the claw-foot tub with direct view of TV. Inter-connecting rooms were ideal for our family. The hi-tea in the afternoon taken in the library was "oh so civilised" - lovely teas, sandwiches, nyonya kueh , cakes, pies and curry puffs and not forgetting scones and cream - just what we needed after a long day. The hotel is situated by the spruced up Malacca River. The monorail directly fronting the hotel is slated to be up and running late 2012. All in a great stay - due in the most part to the staff going the extra mile and the impeccable way all our needs were anticipated.

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.
