Conveniently located near the tourist belt, the hotel is just in front of the ever famous Gurney Drive beach & there are many open air restaurants nearby. The room is spacious with classical design. Their concierge staff is very friendly yet helpful. The coffee garden serves delicious local delights during lunch time & there is a local band playing modern...

To start with, this hotel is located around 10-15mins drive from Georgetown City Center. Nevertheless, it is by the beach and there are some nice eateries and supermarket nearby( to the left of the hotel) - local Penang Chinese food which is opened at night. For business trips, this can be a pleasant hotel to stay( although some may not...

I don't understand how anyone can give this place a bad review! The staff were lovely, and despite having a small issue on initial check in (I was half asleep and requested bed arrangements completely wrong, not actually wanting single beds as I was with my partner haha!). Anyway, despite my hiccup the reception staff were lovely and very helpful,...

Stayed for 4 nights on a business trip. Rooms definitely need updates. Limited variety at breakfast buffet at Café, most staff there were not friendly except the Captain who even delivered room service to my room. People who picked up room service calls was not familiar with the menu... too bad. Other front staff was overall very friendly and helpful....

Today is my second day at this hotel, and initially I had planned to stay 2 weeks, but based on two days of terrible experiences with the staff here, I decided to move on. Fortunately, there are many good alternatives in Penang where you can stay for the same quality but lesser price or the same price but much better...

We travelled with 2 other couples and stayed in this hotel from 4th till 6th March 2017. Generally, the hotel had a grand porch and it overlooked the sea. Upon entrance, the lobby looked spacious and clean. Room was spacious but with an old décor feel and faded interior. We were generally happy with the room cleanliness and comfort level...

The hotel has a reasonably good location - walking distance to the famous Pulau Tikus hawkers and to modern shopping centres like Paragon and Gurney Plaza and yet not that far away from Georgetown either. We were a group of 13 schoolmates and spouses looking for a suitable venue for a weekend get away that allowed us to play tennis...

Stayed here for three nights in a room with the sea view. What I love about this hotel: excellent location (walkable, short ride to all major attractions), the sea view, the local restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel, the buffets at the hotel, the friendly and helpful staff, and the reasonable room rate!!! Highly recommend it!

2D/1N business trip, hotel rooms are run down, not near to any eateries (at least 15mins walk), bed got dust mites and worse of all someone can enter your room with another access card, luckily I latched the door. Contacted front desk, manager told me they had double issue the room to another guess, then after knowing that's wrong they...
