Colonial hotels are not always my thing. All too often they seem to involve people dressed up in some sort of Peter Sellers-esque regimental uniform to greet you on arrival, where the history is presented in the form of faded photos of a bygone and mostly not especially happy era, and where the service and fare is discounted by the...

We stayed at this hotel for the first time in December last year and loved it so much that we decided to go again. The hotel is very well positioned for seeing Georgetown. It is at the very tip of Upper Penang Road, just a short stroll away from the bus stop where you can catch the free shuttle bus... More

What a delightful hotel. From the time you arrive you don't have to open a door and you always are greeted with a smile and greeting. The service is the best that I have experienced. . My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and chose a romantic dinner by the pool in the Victory Annexe. The food was excellent... More

Our second stay in this beautiful hotel and it was just as good if not better than the first. This time stayed in the Victory Annexe which was apprehensive about given we just loved the old luxury of the original building. Very pleasantly surprised to find that the same style had been faithfully recreated. Service standards are as good as... More

We stayed here with our 18 month old son for 3 nights and had some mixed feelings about our stay. As a lot of other people have mentioned, the service and the staff are outstanding and when we did give feedback about things, they were very quick to try to rectify the issues. We were in the Heritage Wing of... More

Just spent 2 nights at the Victory Annex suite. There were some issues at check in because their computer system was down. Otherwise my stay was wonderful. Nicely decorated rooms, huge bath room and a good lounge with nice seating areas. The best part was the balcony. I left the sliding doors opened at night, so I could hear the... More

This hotel is rated 5 stars for a reason from the minute you walk in to the minute you check out the staff were very friendly and helpful. As for the room well where do I begin we booked the club deal which is a little more expensive however, you don't notice the extra cost to much. We had a... More

We spent a long WE at the Eastern & Oriental Hotel from 5 to 8 September, and truly enjoyed our stay. We had booked 2 rooms in the new wing of the hotel, and there was nothing we could fault. The rooms were very spacious, comfortable and quiet, with the usual 5 star-amenities. What makes this beautiful hotel special is... More

So, I love afternoon tea. The experience is as important as the food and tea. The hotel has a great reputation and afternoon tea is one of the features of the hotel. With this in mind we booked and went expecting a high standard. What a disappointment. The hotel in itself is lovely, colonial style architecture. The gentleman who showed... More
