As above title, so I guess I'll give 3.5 or 3.8? Just need improvement to reach 4. I can see the building used to be 4 start facility but it is getting old, it is old. Staff are polite and kind, I'll say they are willing to help but you seriously need more than 2 people on the frontdesk. And... More

I'd been stayed here once in year 2012 and after 2 years I decided to stay here again due having good experience in past, so I was expecting good things happen to me. Unfortunately, it makes me feel disappointed in my second visit. Even though the lobby area and restaurants have been renovated recently and giving stylish and new experience... More

The hotel is located directly on the beach -great for a relaxing holiday. The staff are friendly and willing to assist in booking tours and taxis. The breakfast has a wide variety of food. The rooms are fairly basic but clean and tidy. Had an enjoyable stay. Penang Hill is a must see while in town.

I highly recommend not staying at this hotel. Firstly the price for what you get is ridiculous. The location of the hotel is not convenient at all, its a 25-30 minute drive with no traffic to Georgetown and 15-20 minute drive to Batu Farringhi. The cleanliness of the rooms was very poor, especially in the bathrooms. The buffet breakfast was... More

A beach front hotel in the center of penang, with spacious room, average breakfast, and good location with direct access to the beach. Good for family and business. Hop on hop off bus station direct in front of the hotel. The bath room should be cleaned.
