I was at Evergreen Laurel Hotel Penang to celebrate a birthday. Dinner was the buffet served in the coffee house. I was pleasantly surprised by the great spread of food..including a sashimi station, ikan panggang station, pasta station, seafood on ice, satay, lamb chops & beef steak! The desserts were plentiful too including an ice cream bar with many toppings...

Lots of staff and very friendly and attentive. Provided us motorcyclists parking in front to ensure all bikes' safety. Breakfast was good, well stocked. Rooms clean, pool and spa area nice. Location was nice, not requiring long commute from ferry terminal.

It was a decent and no frills hotel. Feeling of being a little back in time. I booked a sea facing room but there was really not much to see out of the window. Breakfast and lunch are forgettable. I ate the famous local dish - Penang Kway Teow for lunch. It was also decent. Just decent. If you need...

Whenever I visit Georgetown Penang, I choose to stay in this hotel with my family. The location is very good as this hotel faces the sea with a lining of Casuarina trees. I always ask for a deluxe room with a sea view. The room is large, clean and well maintained with the standard amenities you'd expect to encounter. Although...

This is the third time we've stayed at the Evergreen Laurel in Gurney Drive Georgetown on Penang Island. It's the attitude of the staff that makes the place sing along. Nothing is too much trouble but as Australians we appreciate the laid back atmosphere in particular, there is no sign of the master/servant relationship, this is an egalitarian place! This...

Evergreen Laurel Hotel, Penang is a good hotel. I have stayed there several times because it is the hotel my wife use as her business hotel when she is in Penang. We always have a room with sea view, which is enjoyable. The room is large with all the amenities you need, including a relative fast Internet. The staff is...
