This hotel was clean and very comfortable! The brekkie was good (despite missing out second morning) ... Lovely hot tub! It's huge plus you have the choice of a hot tub and a cold tub! We also took the time to chill in the sauna and steam room too! Only issue would be it's not that close to the centre... More

Great Hotel with nice amenities. Front office was quiet informative on all aspects from check-in to other details in and around. Room facilities were quiet good and also restaurant was quiet decent. Vegetarian food was concern which was mainly available on request. We found taxi service from hotel also at par with normal rates which was good. Distance from Airport... More

Breakfast is good and fulling. Complimentary Wifi, Fruits and Drinks (1 can of Coke, 1 can of Green Tea, 1 Can of soya bean... More

Although neither beach nor town, Gurney Drive is as good a base as any for those on business or pleasure. The Evergreen is a tad dated but personally I find the lack of Phillipe Stark design doo-daddery a plus point. What this hotel does have is good service, a decent breakfast and is spotlessly clean. Complimentary fruit and soft drinks... More

This was our first visit to Penang and we couldn't have stayed at a hotel that would've hosted us any better. The evenings allowed for a nice walk along the watersides (although with some offshore construction). We were able to move about relatively easily as we could catch some public transport to nearby malls and sites of interest fast enough.... More

Slightly dated decor but clean and friendly staff. Free parking and food stores are everywhere. Acceptable breakfast. Generous in offering late checkout Good price with spacious room with good WiFi coverage. Welcome drinks, complimentary fruits, water, non alcoholic minibar. Not far from city centre, quite, beside the sea, food around the corner.

Tried this hotel to check out a stay on Gurney drive where we can take evening strolls along the esplanade and take in the sea breeze and aroma of hawker foods. Comfortable and well appointed rooms with stately reception halls and spacious dining facilities. Personnel are courteous and helpful. Hotel entrance right onto the main thoroughfare makes for convenient access.... More

Check in was good. Reception was helpful. 4 bottles of mineral water, 3 cans of soft drinks and 3 apples were supplied daily. Room had large window facing the sea. The hotel has a problem in supplying towels when the room was made, so towels were always supplied very late on the afternoon.
