Read this for best info of our Penang Hill stay. We stayed mid week in late March 2014 at this hotel to try it out for a couple of nights. To get up here to stay, I would recommend you keep your luggage else where down in Penang. Thats what we did. Othervise, you will need to get up using... More

We have been staying at Bellevue on and off for around 30 years - putting up with the colonial era bathrooms and the cardboard toast for the sheer pleasure of the amazing 360 degree views of Penang island, the cool air - and the Bellevue gardens. So I am very happy to report on the latest improvements. The upstairs bedrooms... More

Had a one night stay at Penang Hill. Check - in was quite fast. Upon reaching the room, the interior of the room is quite simple. Though there is some moldy smell from the comforter, but overall is fine. No TV set, might be a bit boring in the night and No Air- Conditioner as well. Only standing fan. Hotel... More

This is my first time visited Penang Hill and I decided to stay at The Bellevue Hotel. The Only Hotel operated on top of the hill. I arrived at 10.30 am and they allowed me to check in early. The reservation staff are very friendly and well trained. I was booked one standard room with two single bed. The interior... More

Not too long ago when something was so bad it was possibly good it was described as being" camp". Well that's the Bellevue. At the equivalent of $US 100 for the night you better enjoy the view and location and not be fastidious. The good is the location , perched atop Penang Hill with breathtaking views and adjacent to the... More

This hotel to me in like an "unpolished diamond". What a waste. I like the location as it overlooks Penang Sea and the hill. I like the full length window as you can have nature so close to you. The hotel room is cosy and clean. Decent except that it has no aircon and we have to request for two... More

Visited the Aviary Ginger Garden at Hotel Bellevue as part of a shore excursion with Superstar Virgo. One of the sadest sights of our tour was a peacock in a pen so small the bird could not display his tail feathers without them being broken on the wire coop. Another bird was seen pacing its enclosure and seemed distressed. Is... More

Hotel was clean and old, which gives you a heritage feel. Room was big and comfy. The hotel staff were excellent. We arrived late at the hotel and there were no restaurant opened so the staff took the trouble to open back the restaurant and serve us. It was basically opened just for us, seeing that we were traveling with... More

Come prepared for the Penang local hospitality which is not to be rushed. Staff are protective of facilities; and rightly so given the vantage point with unblocked views of Georgetown day and night. Simple courtesy and a smile goes a long way with the few staff. Lunch menu is limited to 3 local delights - fried rice and noodles with... More

Excellent views of the town and the bridge of Penang from the highest peak on this lovely island. Recommend a stay in the hotel, now that the rooms are newly renovated. Try the ride on the buggy or the Segway when you are there. Note that when you make a booking, you can request a pickup from airport or anywhere... More
