5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Just returned from our second visit to this lovely place, just as we remembered,good breakfasts,good hosts and great location. Cant thank Stefan ,Ruby and the team enough,we brought another couple from Australia with us and we were all looked after very well. Great location to explore many fascinating places around georgetown.

Room Tip: down stairs rooms are the quietest with bedroom at the rear.

We wanted to choose a hotel in an old restored house ( Heritage House) , there are many, this seemed to us to have a good value for money.
When we arrived it was a surprise because the bathroom is in the backyard, outdoors.
But as soon as we got used to it we found it very nice.Of course there are rooms with different layout. Ours had access from the street to a very well furnished lobby, traditional and modern pieces and our room was rustic but charming. An initial living room, a bedroom not too large and the bathroom in the backyard - a space for the shower, one for the toilet, both closed and the lavatory on the free. All modern and with good air - rusticitie is purposeful and results . There was still a table and chairs in the yard, a refrigerator with fresh water a tea and coffee maker and products to do it.
We ate breakfast, which is included, in the hotel cafe, all freshly made, eggs, a delicious fresh fruit salad.
Well located in the historic area, we visited the whole city on foot.
A delightful hotel.

We stayed in an upstairs room - decor was beautiful and we had everything that we needed. I'm a big fan of tea, so loved the changing tea blends in our room each day. Breakfast was delicious each day, and staff were very friendly and helpful. Situated in a great spot in Georgetown amongst street art, cafes, bars and the beautiful architecture of Georgetown, easy to walk to everything we wanted to see.

Coffee Atellier was perfect!! Our stay here was a destination in itself. From the moment we arrived till we left we felt like we were at a home away from home. The staff became our friends who were knowledgeable in every way by making reservations and giving us directions to locations we wanted to go.
Our room was on the first floor and had an outdoor back courtyard where the toilet and shower was. The bedroom was like stepping into a colonial novel. It was quiet, elegant, and very comfortable.
A wide range of breakfast offerings that were of the highest quality. We actually started ordering only a portion of the full breakfast because it was so much food. Croissants and other hot breads, a medley of fresh fruit, muslie, eggs, bacon, juice and coffee.
A must stay place for couples but not really amenable for families with your children though. Excellent Hotel!!

Room Tip: Ask for a downstairs room with a back courtyard.

Such incredible, wholesome, healthy breakfasts. I can't rave about the breakfasts enough. Rare to find such decent breakfasts in Asia. Definitely would recommend this place without a shadow of a doubt!!
