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

I didn't actually stay at Bellevue The Penang Hill Hotel, having only visited to dine in the cafe and enjoy the view. However, it's obvious that the facilities are aging... No surprise, as Bellevue The Penang Hill Hotel is among one of the first stone structures ever built on Penang Hill, and was formerly a bungalow owned by the sheriff... More

I just recently stayed at Bellevue when i hiked up Penang hill. My initial plan was to hike from Teluk Bahang forest park till penang hill. I had reserved Bellevue because it would be late when i reach Penang hill and there would be no way to get down. The service is average and so is food - Nothing fancy.... More

I had been a long time ago and back with a visitor to show them the view. What a let down. Following a slow and disjointed journey up on the railway we went to the hotel for a light brunch. Service was dealy slow as we sat on the terrace (gardens all roped off) Eventually a menu arrived and orders... More
