Spacious room with sea view

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Apr 2019via mobile
I stay in Junior Suite, the room is so huge. The price for the room is beyond reasonable. I get to watch the sunrise. The hotel located nearby many attraction place. But, the hotel interior design is a bit old fashioned.

Well after reading reviews I was actually dreading staying at this hotel (chosen by other family members for a reunion holiday) however it wasn't as bad as many reviews made it out to be.
The location is great, right on the bus route, 10 minutes in a grab taxi to Batu ferringhi beach and the national park, or south to Gurney plaza for some shopping. Also close to local food courts and a 7/11.
The hotel itself is outdated, but our room was cleaned very well, clean linens and towels, good water pressure in the shower and the pool area was enjoyable. Certainly no mould or offensive smells etc.
We had a superior room on a higher level and enjoyed gorgeous views out over the ocean.
The breakfast buffet had a large selection and was pretty busy on weekend days, and the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Overall it's not a fancy hotel but it is functional and a good base if you plan to be out for most of the day anyway

Firstly the pros - The staffs working in this hotel were awesome. May it be the bellhops, front desk, restaurant, lifeguards, maintenance etc. I would give them five stars.Smiles and friendly all the way. Commendation for their staffs for putting up with guests. Rooms - my room's air-conditioning was in poor state. First night was a sleepless night. Informed front desk, not much difference after that. Informed again the second day, the maintenance guy tried his level best with courtesy to increase my comfort level. Despite having ancient air-conditioning system, the temperature dropped slightly especially at night. Daytime it was still warm. The only saving grace for my room was the view, that's it. It was a special occasion holiday but all this nagging issues with the room was bothering us. The shower pressure was another thing, not smooth at all. The room was clean but looked aged with the furniture and fixtures. The management needs to look into seriously upgrading their rooms based on their pricing. The towels had mouldy odour. The pool was excellent but crowded at certain hours. Please change or dispose worn or torn pool towels. Gives bad impressions to guests. The bed was so so bcoz mattress felt a bit hard. With so many hotels and lodging available in penang, the management of this chain needs to look into their infrastructure and rooms in order to attract guests and looking at the prices, its not worth the money for the room. Seriously refurbishment needed

Pack of dogs almost attacked us on the supposedly private beach. Air conditioning did not work half the time for our room. Television only worked for certain channels. Staff was very kind and nice. View of the water was pleasant.
