Pullman Kuching named Booking.com’s best under five-star hotel partner


KUCHING: Pullman Hotel Kuching has been recognised with ‘Booking.com’s 2013 Best of Blue Fellowship Award’ for ‘Outstanding Hotel Partner Under Five Stars’ category.

General manager Felix Yeo, who accepted the award from a representative from Booking.com here recently, said the honour was the ‘best Christmas present’ for the hotel.

“This is the best recognition for our hardworking and dedicated staff members who have worked diligently in maintaining our top services all these years.”

Pullman Kuching had achieved an average score of 8.5 out of 10 last year on Booking.com – one of the world’s leaders in online booking for accommodation. Scoring has been rated by users or reviewers based on cleanliness, comfort, location, facilities, staff and value for money.

Among the positive comments was one written by a solo traveller who stayed for two nights at the hotel’s superior twin room this month, which said: “Awesome place to be, with no regrets. Everything from the room, facilities, and not to mention the staff (sic).”

A member of a group of five travellers having stayed at Pullman Kuching earlier this month, commented: “The spacious room was value for money, the bathroom so large – it’s like the size of my apartment room in KL. The promotion spa package was great, all spa facilities were well-equipped and in good condition (sic).”

Yeo said the hotel would continue to work hard in providing top services and facilities for every guest and at the same time, improve on other key areas that guests had pointed out via booking sites and social media platforms. This Booking.com award was the second that Pullman Kuching won this year, after one by AsiaRooms.com two months ago which saw the hotel gaining an overall rating of 91 per cent and being adjudged a ‘top-rated five-star property’.

Centrally located at the end of Mathies Street within the city’s Golden Triangle, the first Pullman hotel here features 389 rooms and offers easy access to Borneo’s renowned national parks. The hotel is ideal for business guests, offering an abundance of conference facilities, plus a range of trendy restaurants, bar and a high-end spa.
