We were back in Penang again to attend to family matters, and did not hesitate to come back to the Courtyard. As usual when I write reviews I comment on whether the hotel recognises membership loyalty. We are lifetime Platinum Elite members on Bonvoy, and I’m happy to say that Courtyard recognises our membership loyalty this time, again. During this stay we had a little hiccup. I met with the GM - Subash. I’ve made our concerns known, and all he said was to leave it with him. Thanks Subash, what you did for us was beyond what we expected. We are at the same time grateful for your prompt and professional response. I will also like to give a shout out to Selva managing the restaurant. Mate, you and your team have been excellent, and I wish you continued success. The restaurant now is always bustling, a testament to the food and service under the management’s leadership. Breakfast is always an event for us, even if it’s at 7 am. Well done. Up and up.

Had a lovely two-night stay over Christmas. Was allowed to check in early and also got upgraded to a suite for being a bonvoy platinum member. The suite was gorgeous, with sumptuous views of Georgetown. The bed was comfortable. Water pressure bang on the money and the smart TVs meant we could binge on netflix like we were young again. The nespresso machine was also just the tonic. The pool was delightful, and large enough for a good workout and the gym was sufficient too. Breakfast was ok but if I was paying for it, I'd give it a miss given the array of delicious food at your door step. And the location is convenient, being a short saunter to New Lane and a swag of other nifty kopitiam joints sprinkled around the traps. The only let down was the parking situation. On both times we tried to exit, we found ourselves in a queue that snaked seemingly for miles. We felt like desperate refugees crowding Brandenburg gate after the Wall came down. Can't see why the front desk can't control the boom gate remotely when a customer has a ticket problem or else every sucker behind the offender has to wait too until the issue is sorted out. Despite this mishap, I still look forward to returning when I'm back in Penang. I just won't bring a car!
