Firstly, my apologies to the Evergreen Laurel and the readers for the late review. Life simply got in the way! This is what all hotels should be like. I rang this hotel early in the morning after a horrendous experience with another, which had so far ruined our holiday. They did not have the type of room that I required... More

If you are looking for reasonable-priced hotel during Peak season (New Year), this may be your perfect choice. Our team booked 5 rooms which Hotel staff prepared all rooms in same floor (big thanks). Actually, we would walk to Starbucks closed to the hotel but Starbucks has been relocated to the place not in our walking-distance. Anyway, our visit (4th... More

We stayed here for an event organized by my mum's school. On one instance the hotel was kind enough to make us a portion of vegetarian mee goreng using fresh condiments and oil, which is commendable. On another instance we asked them to make French Fries exactly the same way since my sister was fasting. But they used stale oil... More

We have stayed at the Evergreen numerous times over the past 15 years. it was first recommended to us by locals as a good alternative to the standard Batu Ferringhi life. We love it at Evergreen. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The price is excellent. To get this level of service for the price is very good. We... More

When entering the hotel of the Evergreen I was pleasantly surprised with the décor and cleanliness, the service was also very nice and helpful. When attending the room we placed our 8 month old son on the carpet for 10 mins, when we picked him up his legs were black with filth. I complained and asked for the carpet to... More

Rooms very clean with large bathroom. We had fantastic sea views from our room. Staff friendly and helpful. Our package included buffet breakfast which had good selection of local and continental breakfast choices. Short walk to cafes for evening dining. About 30 minute walk to the Gurney Plaza shopping centre. Perfect for someone wanting nice accomodation with a moderate price.

We stayed a night at Evergreen Laurel. Big room, clean and nice comfy bed. Bathroom is spacious with bathtub. Nothing to complain. Quick check in and check out. Nice parking space if you drive. Just walk out of the hotel and turn left at Gurney Drive for shopping and dining. Two malls located just down the road if you like... More
