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.

A pleasant enough two night stay but wouldn’t want any longer. I enjoyed the quiet beach and pool. Hotel staff helpful. Huge choice for breakfast - I enjoyed freshly prepared omelette followed by pastries.
The rooms and general decor are in desperate need of refurbishment.

The bus 101 stops directly in front of hotel and is only 2RM to George Town in one direction and the National Park in the other.
There are several restaurants and a food market nearby.

Decided to stay at Copthorne because I'm a member of Millennium Hotels. I certainly expected more (since it is under Millennium) but was disappointed the minute I was given a single key with plastic key ring on it instead of a room card.

While the staff are helpful and friendly, the hotel is in need of an urgent upgrade. The building itself is very old. The room has a damp feeling. Luckily it has a balcony (with a good view) and allowed fresh air to come in. Linen was clean but not the carpets. Some drawers are stuck and difficult to open.

The breakfast can be better in terms of quality. Again, refurbishing is required and keep to the standard of a Millennium hotel.

The pool is basic and no bar. The walk way to the beach, although safe, it is not in a pretty sight with construction planks laid along the pathway.

The hotel room decor is quite outdated but ample parkings & friendly staff. Breakfast is good too. Price is considerably cheap for its location but nothing much to the room. Stayed in the standard room so there was limited view of the ocean because there were blocks of high rise apartments blocking the view.

The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. I really appreciated the extra pillow provided in the closet. The staff very friendly and helpful. When I asked for recommendation for other options for dinner other than Georgetown, he recommended Gurney Drive which was closer. The hotel location is close to Batu Ferringhi. The breakfast choices were great and delicious. However, you need to be extra cautious if you are dining at the dining area near the swimming pool because of the crows.

location is just nice as it is located in between georgetown and batu feringgi... food paradise and beach in just 20 minutes away. there are a few nice stalls nearby where u can enjoy local delights. breakfast buffet was also good. nice and quiet beach as well. certainly come back... but room furniture definitely need to be upgrade, and if u need to iron, u need to go to floor 15 and 11 as they dont provide ironing facilities in room..

The hotel facilities are outdated, the bathroom/toilet is a let down due to old equipment and looks dirty.
Access to lobby also not user friendly if you park at basement due to no elevator.
the only good thing is the breakfast.

Friendly and helpful staff. Located at a pretty good location. But I will never choose to stay at this hotel again due to the following:
Room smells bad.
Baby roaches in the room.
Bath towels were old. Not comfortable a stay.
Stained bedsheets.

We stayed here 20 years ago and this year we wanted to come back. It's a bit old, run down, but still really nice and clean. The staff is so kind, polite and helpful. Bathrooms need renovations and some new mattresses would be nice. Swimming pool area a bit boring, but nice sea view, and quiet. Across the street there is a small foodcourt and a few supermarkets. About 20 min drive to batu ferringi and Georgetown.

The pool is situated in an open section outside the cafe, so yes, if it isnt raining that day, you do get plenty of sunshine. No sun lounger on the beach though, it's just a small sandy patch that is shared with neighbouring apartments. bring your own towel for a lay down if you so insist but its beach is nothing to shout about. take a taxi ride over to Batu Ferringhi and you have slightly better beach.

The free breakfast isn't very good and it's off-putting to have security watching.
