The rooms are clean and reasonable in size. The toiletries and bedding are of good quality. The only dissatisfaction was on our last day our the staff mentioned, there will be no power, aircon and only lift will operate due to city power cut and the gender could only support some common areas like lofts and lights. No compensation were offered and they still accept reservations knowing no one literally stay inside the room.

Hotel's Favourite
One of the best hotels I've stayed in Penang. Even E&O is not up to par with Hompton! We stayed at the Premium Suite for 4 nights. The view of the sea was gorgeous at every corner of the room. THe suite was clean with ample toiletries, mini bar and good view of the lovely sea. Staff were polite & attentive. We are able to get Grab easily & eateries are located within walking distance (Vivo food court, Aarti vilas & Pang seafood restaurant for breakfast). The beach was clean . I have no complaints and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Another enjoyable stay. Our first time @ Hompton was a year ago. That stay was GREAT. Happy to report another Cool stay, Feb. 2024. I'd say kudos to doormen, front desk staff, reservation staff, outdoor deck waiter/waitress staff, & FRIENDLY room-cleaning staff. Whoever is interviewing/hiring/training staff @ Hompton: THANK YOU! Staff are attentive, helpful, friendly. EXCELLENT. Rooms clean & bright I sure hope that another stay at Hompton might be possible, whenever we can travel out this way again.

We came here for a holiday and decided to have dinner at the hotel itself. The food was good and the staff here are very friendly as well. They even have a live band performing. What more could you ask for. After having dinner we went for a walk by the beach right behind the hotel. Overall a good experience.

This hotel is really doing something right, a lot of effort is spent in making their guests feel at home. The personnel is very welcoming and helpful, the facilities are great, the views on the ocean from the rooms is superb. Having dinner alfresco on the terrace is a delight. We loved the buffet breakfast, with offerings that change everyday, Asian but also Continental options, including freshly baked cakes. The food is very good quality. Soya milk is also readily available, which is appreciated. We also enjoyed free food & drink daily in our room, which is rare enough to be mentioned. if you wish to travel by bus, a bus stop is located 2 min walk from the hotel, on the main road. A Lotus supermarket is conveniently located less than 10 min walk away, with many shops and eateries in its gallery. We read good reviews of the food court opposite the hotel but have not used it, preferring eating at the hotel or at restaurants in Tanjung Bungah and Georgetown on this occasion. Our only remark would be that no English-speaking TV channels were available, but this can surely be looked into in the future. If you are staying in the area we would recommend to give the Hompton Hotel a go, you will not be disappointed.

Good breakfast selection, location close to the beach, easy check in experience, and friendly staff Requested queen/king bed but received two single bed though check in time, reason given due to high occupancy. Stayed during low peak season. The water hose is not well maintained, quiet dim lighting in the room. Enter ace to the hotel is crowded with food court at the front.
