Hotel is in dire need of upgrading overall, we stayed in room 813, and that was absolutely shocking. First impressions were not positive when we got out of the lift and the state of the carpet in the hallway was poor, but we put that down to it being a high traffic area. Room was beyond basic, bed was rock hard, shower strength was too limited to wash my hair (at least the water was warm) and the towels were wafer thin and grey from overuse and poor washing. Got to admit I didn’t look under the bed, was too scared of what I might find. Tables and chairs in restaurant are more reminiscent of a school cafeteria than of a restaurant in a hotel, and don’t get me started on the breakfast. Overall very different to the photos shown on the website.

Where to start. NOTHING like what you see in the management photos! or promotional Sentral videos! Reception staff are friendly and helpful - that, unfortunately is the only positive. The room was dirty, falling apart and clearly not cleaned - lots of hair on the floor and in shower (from all parts of the body!). The floor of the room was dirty, sticky and very unpleasant. In 37 years of travelling, the worst hotel I have stayed in.

Air conditioner was not working, internet wifi was not working, very limited swimming pool time, swimming pool has no privacy as it is just next to restaurant. A lot of outsiders free to roam at swimming pool area. Access to beach is outside from hotel, no air cond at public lobby, walkway, lift is small and a lot of sounds, bed was very hard, towels are worn and dirty, balcony doors are very difficult to open. Overall very poor maintenance

Worst ramadhan buffet ever! This hotel doesn’t even deserve 1 star. They deserved 0 star. You paid rm65 for nothing. You don’t get to eat anything. all of the food already finished before buka puasa time. All the food stall like kuey teow satay laksa ais kacang already finished before buka puasa. Same goes to dessert and main course such as rice also finished before buka puasa. Very poor service don’t even have manager to handle the issue. I reserved 8 people and only received 4 people table a very small table. If you guys want to eat buffet better go to other place please don’t waste your time and money here. you will regret it! The chicken doesn’t cooked properly you can still see the blood on the chicken. The food all left over and we don’t have any choice but to eat left over. Only rice and kuah don't have like chicken or daging to eat! At first I thought they gonna refill the food but in the end they don't even refill the food. Car park also one of the issue!!!!!

Room and bathroom is small and unhygienic. No deposit box in the room. Furniture are old. Room phones not functioning. Pool is small and packed. Parking us limited underground. Had to park at the roadside. Room service lousy. Had to request for room to be cleaned and new sheets upon request. The only thing that is convenient is the hawker Centre opposite the hotel with a variety of local food.

I booked 2 night with this hotel. Ive travelled many times to Penang but its my first stay here. Location wise is perfect. BUT my very first impression not good as the receptionist not friendly. No concierge. I arrived at 8pm.Good thing room was ready. When entered our room facing the beach...at level 2. Room was spacious but looked so old cabinet was peeling off, floor was sandy clearly not cleaned well,the bedsheet was so old and stained..pillows looked like picked from rubbish bin. The aircond was not cold enough. Can you believe there is cobweb im the room?The tv remote was not working. The bathroom looks like newly refurbished but water stagnates after bathing and no hot water! ONLY THING GOOD ABOUT THE ROOM WAS IT HAD A SPECTACULAR VIEW..I would give 5 star for the view and you can hear the waves from the room. It was so relaxing. NO ONE CLEANED OUR ROOM ! Breakfast was not appetising. Pool was overcrowded and dirty. WORST thing people were bathing with tshirt amd normal shorts. I didnt allow my kids to use the pool. The beach was amazing. The room was so bad that we checked out the next night. Im actually disappointed for the owner of this hotel. I HOPE THEY DO SOMETHING. You have the perfect spot,infront of beach . Right next to a food court too...Your hotel deserves so much better...please do something to save it...

Bedroom very dirty. Full of sand on the floor and bed was dusty. Other guest come from the sea with soaking wet straight to lobby and staff did nothing about that. Not even stop them. It is very dangerous for elderly and i’m coming with my parents, really not safe. Breakfast was horrible. The only good thing it is right beside the beach with a good view.
