Very Disappointing!
The Hotel Realm is definitely not a 5 Star Hotel. The service we received was very slow on Checking In. Our room wasn’t ready on time and when we arrived inside our room it wasn’t clean. I’ve stayed in many 5 star hotels and I can assure you that this Hotel is not up to the standards of a 5 star hotel. Getting out of the Car Park using your room key is ridiculous because it never works, so you have to wait for an attendant to answer the phone and finally open the gate to exit the Car Park. Our room was so bad they moved us to a new room. There was a big mess in the walkway of our room for hours which I’ve taken photos of to show how bad this place is. The wait staff and breakfast were great. But that was the only good thing about this hotel. We heard many other people complaining about the same issues we had. The hotel management is very unprofessional. They need to have a good professional team of cleaners and fix the issue with exiting the Car Park for hotel guests. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone after the terrible experience we had.
This photo was taken outside our room at night when we arrived and stayed this messy for hours afterwards.
I’ve never seen a 5 star hotel so unclean and unprofessionally maintained.
This was the the unclean hallway where our room was located.
This photo was taken after 7pm and the hallway was in this mess for hours.
The bathroom in our room was not freshly cleaned after the previous guests.
The bath was dirty and we didn’t even have a fresh roll of toilet paper, and the bathroom floor and basin area was not clean.
This is a dirty, used glass in the bathroom which was not clean when we first arrived in our room.
The bathroom has not been cleaned after the previous guests stayed there.

Items not returned.
Everything was fine during the stay but I left a jacket in the room. I would have expected a 5 star hotel to have contacted me. Instead, after 2 days I called them only to be told that they can’t be sure they have the item. If staff have taken it home instead of handing it in to list properly, then the hotel has a bigger problem than just this bad review.
