I stayed in this hotel for 04 days and 03 nights. The Hotel has its own pro and cons. We reached here early morning. As the checkin time was late and the room was not vacant, our luggage was kept in the luggage room. Reception staff was helpful and asked for the mobile no saying that she will inform us... More

Good location and ample parking. Room is also cosy and reasonably clean. Staff are also pleasant and courteous. Good wifi signal in the room. We did not require much assistance from the staff (apart from checking in & out) as we only came back to the room to sleep at night. And we slept well as the room is comfortable.... More

Budget hotel that is a little dated and in needs of some TLC. The hotel looks lovely and the pool area is great after a long day exploring the local area. The main problem was mosquitoes, so many that we had to buy bug spray for the rooms. The problem seems to be that because of the age of the... More

Not so good. Very noisy in the early hours of the morning!! Sounded as if someone was being attacked. No presence of security. Screams went on for days. Overall service - poor. So glad we are safely back home.

We were shown into rooms that smelt, the toilet had not been cleaned-the last occupant's solids were still there. The room was dirty, paint peeling on the walls. When we complained at reception we were shown other rooms that were equally bad. Eventually we decided to ask for a refund and found a much cleaner, central hotel.

1st time check in this hotel. For family easy for room in GF. Environment verry Heritage and Style. Clean in overall. Swimming pool not to small but Ok for kids enjoy the pool. If need to go other place like Komtar, Perangin Mall, still need to drive a car. Easy Parking because can park near room.

The four of us with a baby chose this hotel for our short holiday in Penang on 1st Feb 2015. Checking in took quite a while because there was a group of Chinese tourists ahead of us at the counter. Only one staff handled the reception but she apologised profusely to me regarding the delay. Since I was in the... More

My 4 star rating is based on the fact that this is not a high priced hotel, and is therefore based on what you get for your money. There are essentially 4 types of room here - the cheap ones with no balcony 1st and 2nd floor(I can't comment as I didn't stay in one) more expensive rooms with a... More

If you are looking for a simple place to stay for the family and to explore Georgetown from a vantage point, this will be one. There is ample parking for those coming by car. The Hainamese Delights restaurant in the hotel serves a mix of Asian and English fare and their macaroni pie is surprisingly delicious. Diagonally opposite the hotel... More
