For the price I paid for two nights stay at this hotel, I was expecting something basic. Well, I had a wonderful time and indeed, this hotel is great value for money. As soon as I arrived, I was greeted with a warm welcome by Raja who helped me with my bags and led me to Reception. The young lady... More

My family and I stayed here from 23 rd Dec -26 Dec. I had forgotten my handbag after having breakfast on Christmas Day, only realising it 2 hours later! I felt so thankful to the quick thinking staff , Shira who had handed it over to the cashier . I was so relieved to get my handbag back. A big... More

Reading some of the historic reviews we wondered what we where about to let ourselves in for when we arrived at this hotel, the truth is we enjoyed a very good seven night holiday with no complaints whatsoever. The hotel is in a excellent location situated right on the beach and when you factor in the cost of a one... More

Stayed in a suite at the top floors with the family. It's a bit old, but still okay. The view was great as we were facing the beach. Very convenient too as we could just walk down to get to the beach. A variety of beach activities are on offer eg. banana boat ride, para-sailing, ski jet rides, etc. However,... More

We stayed 4 days at this hotel. The sea view from the hotel is great and the pool is located overlooking the sea as well. Breakfast could be a bit better quality when it comes to western food. Staff is friendly and the 3x a day free shuttle bus from the hotel to Georgetown is very handy.

Stayed in this hotel 3 times. Its location in Tanjung Bungah is convenient, not too far from the town, Gurney drive, shopping malls. Great for families with kids. Rooms are always clean and spacious, although parking space is quite limited during peak season / school holidays. Breakfast and BBQ buffet by the beach is good. Within walking distance you can...

Location: it's in the middle of Batu Ferringhi and Georgetown, which makes it pretty convenient to head to either directions. It's accessible by bus 101 which brings you to pretty much every tourist destination we wanted to cover (an alternative would be affordable taxi rides), with the bus stops located 5 minutes from the hotel Amenities: It's a pretty old...

We stayed on 29, 30 & 31 Dec 2014. Overall the hotel is clean and staffs are friendly. The room is clear & the food serving on breakfast not bad The balcony is dangerous especially for young kids. Too bad there is a function (Beach party) on 31st Dec night but did not provide any discount for house guest.

The rooms have basic amenities but are very spacious. The balcony is especially nice with a great view and deck chairs to relax. Experiencing the overwhelming crowd for breakfast made it unappealing to hang around the hotel for swimming or other activities. We spent most of the time exploring Penang and visiting family.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Penang. We had a very nice room, great view and the staff were friendly. It is however showing it's age. If you can get a good deal then it is definitley worth staying. Bus into Georgetown stops right outside.
