We booked Copthorne Orchid (CO) after we booked Copthorne Kings in Singapore thinking that known chain hotels should have a good reputation. We're not after sophistication when staying in a hotel, but a clean, comfortable, and presentable facilities and rooms are our main focus. We're prepared to pay for a hotel with the expectation that the hotel will have the...

Let's start with the positives , great location with views over the sea. Very efficient and friendly staff. Bed comfortable and clean. Now the negatives, room although clean in the places chambermaids can reach they really need a deep clean this goes to the maintenance of the hotel it all seems to be grubby including the carpets. The hotel needs...

From the pictures and the reputation of the hotel of the same name in Cameron Highlands, the one in Penang sure is a pure disappointment. I am usually not a picky traveller, but when it comes to cleanliness, it bothers me so much. The room was aged, fair enough. Wifi keeps getting cut off every 2 minutes, never mind. 2...

Despite numerous critical reviews, our 8 day stay here was most enjoyable. We occupied a suite on the 17th floor which was exceedingly spacious, although some of the furnishings were outdated. However, everything was comfortable & serviceable & we certainly had no complaints. We had booked online & check in was smooth, efficient & friendly & all the staff that...

The front desk staff are friendly and nice, tried their best to accommodate us. Rooms look a bit off (in term of the deco and interior) but then we really didn't mind as we spend most of our time outside. However, the linens really need to thoroughly checked as too many black stains either on the towels or even the...

Went to Penang and stay at Copthorne for a night. It's far from expectation. The building is old as well as the room. Check in time was long and the staff were not friendly. I guess they need to have more staff in reception. Saw quite number of guests waiting as well. Got a corner room and it's quite big...

When I read the reviews I worried about my booking at Copthorne. I stayed here during the eighties and had fond memories. This is our forth day, half way through our stay and I am very pleased with the hotel. Sure, it's not a modern establishment, still uses room keys, but everything works well, is clean an friendly. The staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the popular Tanjung Bungah beach, the hotel is one of the nearest beach hotels to the city of Georgetown. The sandy stretch, with rocks strewn intermittently against a backdrop of lush tropical trees and shrubs, makes the beach picturesque and unique. Here you have the luxury to choose sun or shade but what you will value most is the privacy, the tranquility and the safe sanctuary that we can offer you to be in complete harmony with Mother Nature. Hotel is close to several attractions in Penang i.e. Gurney Drive, Batu Ferringhi Night Market, Batu Ferringhi Beach, Spice Garden and Butterfly Farm. Guests of the hotel can relax away from hustling petty traders and the prying eyes of the public. It is the perfect getaway and stay from the hustle and bustle of city life, the perfect hideaway to get away from it all. Hotel has a 24 hour restaurant serving international and local cuisine, a Chinese Restaurant that features weekend and holiday promotions. Nearby the hotel are major shopping complexes like Tesco, Straits Quay, Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon. Bank, clinic, food court, restaurants serving Western, Chinese, Indian, Korean, local and seafood cuisines are just within walking distance from the hotel. Hotel is nearby to major Hospitals. For relaxation, the hotel houses a Spa with separate female/male Jacuzzi and Sauna, offers attractive and interesting massage and treatment packages. ... more   less
