This hotel was built in the 80s and was the first hotel in Tanjung Bungah. The hotel has seen better days and the interior is still stuck in the 80s. The buffet breakfast is simple and the food generally, at breakfast and other mealtimes, is average. The semi private beach is great as is the pool. Our one bedroom suite... More

A big pool and a balcony were my main reasons for selecting this hotel and the very reasonable price helped a lot. The building has two sections, the lower at the beach and the upper besides new 50-story skyscrapers.View from my 14th floor balcony was breathtaking, small houses below, the bay and boats at open sea and highrises backed by...

I have stayed twice before and I can say it is getting worst! Totally is not up to Copthorne and Mellennium standard. This hotel still using KEY to enter room since all other hotel improved using sensor card. Really back dated! There is lots of dust in the room. I can't even compare with Copthorne Singapore Copthorne Penang really need... More

Copthorne orchid hotel penang is an old hotel. The interior of the hotel itself seems odd but nice. They have bathtub, balcony, and indeed, great view to the ocean. Minus: Insect and mosquitos during the night at the balcony.

I've been reading several reviews about this great hotel. I can't help it to notice that mostly "locals" complain. And mostly on the atmosphere of Malaysia! Yes, most people here are relaxed, it's HOT!. Don't complain about the long chain of organisation, that's Malaysia. Even housekeeping has 5 levels, and the poor person down, needs to do it all. ::-)... More

Service wise I would say quite excellent. All front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel porter was superb at giving you helping hand... More

Let me start by saying that the hotel exceeded my expectations- yes, rest assured the hotel really isn't quite as bad as the reviews will have you believe!! The reception area is rather nice and creates a great first impression. Moreover check in/ out were relatively painless and quick... Our room was better than expected- a good size, with a... More

A well located hotel, with beachfront access and room has ocean views. Ample space in the room, generally clean. However, the furnishings need an update. We were here with my parents. The staff was prompt and attentive when we had to change from a room, phone did not work and the room smelt musty. This hotel has great charm, but... More

On our annual vacation to Penang in 2105 we were advised that the A/C system will be shut down for 3 nights. As we do not wish to cancel our booking we had an experience of how we felt without A/C. It was very uncomfortable for the 3 nights with only a pedestal fan blowing all night. Well we appreciate... More
