Service at the reception was horrendous. My company has booked 14 rooms for our trip last weekend. During check-in, we arrived around 3.30pm, only 6 rooms were available and we had to chase like crazy for the remaining rooms. finally got all the rooms at 5pm after one and half hour of arguing and pressuring. 1.

Very good location, nice beaches, large swimming pool. Rooms were smelly and dirty, bed worn out. Not the best beach hotel, could be better if they improve the room conditions. Room service is brilliant. Public transport excellent from front of the hotel to kampar and guerney drive. As usual local taxis are extortionate. Buses are very flexible and cheap. Never... More

This is my second stay as my first stay was on last year April. I was so surprise because the hotel were newly renovated at the main lobby area. It is so clean and huge (especially I like those huge fans hanging up the ceiling). The room was huge and clean. Just a little disappointment was the lift problem, luckily... More

We just got home from a long weekend here. First impressions are good, we paid a bit extra for sea view room and got put on a high floor which was great. The room was nice, bed and pillows very comfy ( although a king size bed is 2 singles pushed together!) plenty of space and a good balcony, if... More

Our family of 10 persons stayed here from the 30th of July 2014 to the 31st of July 2014. The following sums up what I have to say about the stay: 1. Location: The hotel is conveniently located near to many facilities such as bank, pharmacy and restaurants. However, it is quite a distant from major attractions in Penang and... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. The proximity to the beach was why we chose to stay here - and in that it delivered 100%. The beach and pool were clean and well maintained. The hotel itself required something in our room fixed every day - which was thankfully done quickly. The elevators broke down at least once... More

Run away! This is NOT a 4 stars hotel. Customer service is an abstract notion. The hotel is old and need many reparations, even dirty. Everything you need will be charge (more coffee in your room ..), Naughty food, disapointing breakfast buffet, noisy and incorrect behavior of usual basic customers. Crap WiFi: very low and cut during the night, neighbour's... More
