Overall the stay at Park Royale batu ferringhi was enjoyable. I would definitely come back for another stay but not on the next chinese new year or any holiday season, the crowd was so crazy that it was hectic just to get breakfast. It was packed & loud , food choices & quality is also below our expectation ( comparing to other hotel , e.g. DoubleTree putrajaya & Avani Sepang ) Checking in was also slow due to the crowd, the staffs was overwhelm and I have to personally walk to the counter & request a drink ( Javana lounge ) instead of getting serve while waiting.

We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights at the Park Royal. It’s a Beautiful hotel with great friendly staff, in an excellent location. The daily breakfast was lovely with a great selection on food. We enjoyed spending time by the pool. Highly recommend for a relaxing Penang getaway.

This hotel was upgraded during COVID and is in pristine condition. The staff, as mentioned in virtually all reviews, are fantastic. They are friendly and efficient and nothing is too much trouble. At this point I would particularly like to name Sarowar and Firman at the Sunset Bar for their excellent service and attention. The hotel is right on the beach and ideally situated for restaurants and the night markets which operate every night. Will we be going back ? No. An emphatic No ! The ParkRoyal is a family oriented hotel and as such is full of groups of large families of every size colour and creed. There is obviously more money to be made out of catering for large family groups than for trying to attract older retired couples. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday then this is not the place for you ! There are literally dozens of children everywhere. There is a dedicated children’s pool but that doesn’t stop them using the main pool, which, by the way, seems much smaller than it looks on the website photograph. Had enough screaming and yelling to last me for some time. On a more positive note I would take issue with some reviews that state that the horses on the beach cause nuisance and foul smells. The horses are well looked after and any manure is swiftly removed. There were no odious aromas and the horses do not cause any danger to people on the sands. Indeed, the noise created by the incessant noise of the jet-skies was far more irritating ! Breakfast at the ParkRoyal is something of a lottery. Get there early before 8.30 and it is not too bad, arrive after that and be prepared to face badly behaved children, lots of noise and mayhem and mountains of food being left on plates to be thrown away. That is in no way a reflection on the hotel but an indictment of our times ! A dozen or more sun loungers would not go amiss around the grounds which are very well kept. Service at the Beach Bar is efficient and an evening meal by the sea is recommended

The hotel was lovely and clean and the gardens were beautiful. The beach bar was perfect for lunchtime snacks and also for pre dinner cocktails. The staff were mostly very well trained, friendly and helpful. We had a small problem one evening in the Chinese restaurant, but that was dealt with very quickly and efficiently, and we didn't go hungry. The hotel grounds were beautifully designed and cared for and the pool was a joy to swim in. Our room was very nice and cleaned perfectly by Monu and we were always delighted to see what designs he had made out of towells each day. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend the hotel to anyone who is visiting Penang

Our stay at the PARKROYAL Penang Resort, post-renovation, was a mix of highs and lows. As a Titanium GHA member, an appreciated upgrade set a positive start. The kids adored the swimming pool, though the beach didn't impress much. The lounge area near reception, with its array of entertaining games, was a definite hit for family downtime. However, breakfast was a letdown. The dining area was overcrowded and chaotic, clearly needing more space and staff to manage the morning rush. This experience has us considering the less crowded Shangri-La next door for our next visit to Penang. While PARKROYAL Penang shines in areas like modern newly refurbished exterior and interior, family amenities and guest recognition, improvements in managing breakfast crowds could enhance the overall guest experience significantly.

It’s a great hotel in good condition for kids: nice kids club and two good pools including slides. The garden is beautiful and the food in the restaurants really good. Unfortunately the live music is played until after 11pm and there was firework every day until 1am which really affected our sleep quality.

Everything comes at its best! From location, price, staff, food to facilities! Highly recommended! I have stayed at this hotel multiple times and will definitely return. We could just spend whole day being around within the hotel (with kids).

Everything is well kept, especially the room is spick and span. Pool is very clean and kept warm, especially the main pool. Play pool water is slightly on the murky side but acceptable. Staff is also friendly and very helpful, kudos to the bellboy at main entrance who treats everyone like his own friends. The only minor hiccup occurred was that there's a slight delay upon checking in - we reached after a long drive from KL during CNY, there was only 1 guest in front of us but it took quite some time (seems like a few forms needed to be filled up). When it's my turn, I was informed that my room was not ready yet as staff needed to carry out sanitisation. It was 5pm, I expected the room to be ready much earlier. Receptionist did not offer anything until I requested for a late check-out at 1pm.
