4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nicely decorated room. Breakfast was good. Pool area a bit small and next to restaurant. We had Valentine's dinner there the first night and it was good, but took forever to prepare. The staff was very accommodating and nice. There were mosquitoes outside and many inside the business area where I used the computer. Massages were nice. Would stay closer... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

My family had a two bedroom room for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was good and the pool large enough to do a bit of swimming with the kids, with some small but pleasant gardens too. The antique furniture made the room feel very homely and the bed was comfortable. And with a great location, near bars... More

Ending my March 2014 trip to Penang, I found that this hotel is worth staying. We checked-in with warm welcome projected by the receptionists and bellboy. Room cleanliness is up to our expectations and the services given were excellent. Will surely come again for our next visit. Thank you for your hospitality...

This hotel is very modern,clean,well appointed with lovely rooms and staffed by friendly and efficient staff. The buffet breakfast was delightful with much to chose from. The hotel has been beautifully refurbished and is very modern while keeping the historical theme.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and although we arrived quite late at the airport on a Friday, the hotel organised a transfer for us (for an additional charge). The driver was amazing and in the short time we were in the car he gave us lots of tips on places to go and how to optimise the... More

stayed 3 nights with family, overall experience is good... nice spacious rooms... we even have fun exploring one another room as all our rooms come with different concept and layout.... as for the location, still need to walk out a lot to go to nearby malls... not so ideal for the elderly.... but still a very comfortable stay....

Lovely big room, good service and location is good too - walking distance to attractions in Georgetown, there is a free bus stop nearby and opposite a very good coffee shop for Indian food. Didn't swim in the pool as it seemed like an odd location. I can't say anything negative about the room or service. One minor point worth... More

Check in was quick. The room was quaint. Love the bathroom. Staff were very helpful and friendly, especially the small lady who works in the front office. She recognises the guests and possesses much information regarding the history of the hotel. The Penaga Spa was a treat and the treatments there were relaxing and peaceful. Only stayed a night but...

This hotel is a beautiful heritage style hotel. I love the interior very much except that there are a few funny modern stuffs that they try to put together but they don't come along with the overview picture. What I like most is nice and friendly staffs. Moreover, the room is big and convenience enough. It would be great if... More

If you are sick of staying in the typical hotel box, then this might just the place for you. A very careful restoration and a deliberate effort to use environment practices has seen the redevelopment of these terrace houses into wonderful guest rooms. The room we stayed in was Transfer room 5 which has a double balcony, jacuzzi, living area... More
