Good hotel for a very affordable price. We have been upgraded to a big room without extra charges. Clean and very comfortable room. The service is incredible. More than helpful with accommodations and services throughout the entire stay. The hotel is in a great location close to the beach.

The homestay gave us the impression of excellent, safe place to stay in. The staffs were very friendly and helpful with all the assistance that we required. It was very easy to get uber here to go around. Location and room are perfect. Next to the beach and close to famous tourist spots i.e Gurney, Batu Ferrighi and Georgetown. The room is huge - bed comfortable and clean bathroom. We ended up staying there for a week.

At first it was quite sketchy but when I came here with my mother & my other two siblings it was okay. The room is good. It was really close to the beach. The toilet still need improvement tho due to it was shared with other room. Mr. Ray could provide extra pillow. However, if you are renting a car, it was very close to place of attractions such Batu Feringghi, Georgetown & many more. You can get to any eateries by car & it is quite close too. Still need improvements but honestly overall is very good (for young adults)

It's was bloody stupid management! I have book a night stay for 27th..and the guy name Ray called me to make sure what time I will be arrive there and check in? And I have confirm him that I will be late bcz my flight is delay..and will arrive around 10 30 to 11 30 at night and he is already alert it and he says no problem. Well when I am there, there was nobody at all! Try ring the bell outside the door and no one came up! Call the bloody guy phone hundreds times but not pick up! Even just now! Can u guys imagine I came with bags and standing outside the homestay..alone and suddenly heavy rains and I am wet! What a bloody people they are! This is such big mistake I have book the room from internet. I am not expecting this will happen..bcz so far always okay when I book online any room! I want that bloody guy come and say something here about this incident. I am totally not happy.....!!!
