Sorry this review is a trifle late – time just got away. As mentioned in previous reviews, we have stayed at the Holiday Inn, Batu Ferringhi many times and returned for four weeks in February this year. We requested and were given our favourite room in the Tower Wing with balcony and walk in shower etc. All is well here...

We got a sea view room with a balcony. Well worth the extra few bucks. Amazing view! Rooms were well appointed. Good breakfast. Lots of selection and a really good price. Kids ate free. This is an older hotel but working on improvements. For the price, a good choice!

Nothing can go wrong when you have a ps3 in the room. Spacious and service was top notch. Highly recommended for those with kids/young family as we got the king size bed while the kids got the 2 single ones. Easy access to the night market and walking distance to most of the good eateries

Room given facing main road and very noisy due to vehicle sound. Part of lobby area under renovation but there is no advance notice given, more or less the view got impacted. We love the breakfast served in our last visit but this time we think the quality has dropped.
