The hotel was conviently situated. The staff very helpful and polite. Although a busy hotel there was plenty of room on the beach and by the pool. A very pleasant stay! Is definitely a place to stay if you want a relaxing holiday away from the crowd but not in an overly remote location. Gurney drive is probably 10 to... More

2nd time at this hotel. Staff were lovely. As we arrived unbeknown to us it was the Ramadan holiday. The staff were so busy but all kept their cool and still gave that lovely penang smile. Thing I like about this hotel is that every room has an ocean view. The breakfast is good and the restaurants are great. Only... More

If you are torn between staying in Georgetown or Batu Ferringhi, this hotel in Tanjung Bungah is a good middle-ground. It is closer to Batu Ferringhi where we went for our dinners. Georgetown is slightly further but not by much. This is a belated review - we were there July 2013 (tripadvisor calendar only goes back to Sep 2013 when... More

I booked a King-sized bed and they checked me into a double. Not wanting to create a scene, they said they would join the beds together and put the bedspreads over. I went up and housekeeping came up and just pushed the 2 beds together. I got irritated and said this was not acceptable. He called downstairs and they said... More

Firstly the staff are absolutely brilliant. We had arrived early for a conference and check in was at 3pm. However, the staff was kind enough to allow an earlier check in. They were very accommodating and always ready to help. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Yes the hotel may be old and in dire need of refurbishment, but I... More

There was an incident that electricity shut down in my room 5:30 am, the maintenance guy was not willing to fix it and wanted me either to change the room (difficult to wake up all the family at that time and move) or he will fix it tomorrow (I think he meant later that day as it was only 5:30...

The location of this resort is very good. Not too far away to town probably 20 mins by car and 10 minutes drive to Batu Ferringi. But the resort need a refurbish badly. It looks decent like any other high rise apartment from the outside but inside of the building totally run down! When I arrived at the lobby it... More

First time here, thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were very friendly and helpful, felt like part of the family. Hotel is older but very clean and suite is very large, great value for money. View of beach is also great. Bus stop right out front and buses are frequent and cheap. Several good restaurants within walking distance. Would recommend this hotel... More
