We had stayed in Holiday Inn Penang, Batu Ferringhi from Dec 18 to Dec 21, 2014. Upon checkout at 12 pm on Dec 21, 2014, 3 out of 4 of my family members started to vomit and had severe stomach pain. This cause much distress to us as we had to go the hospital in Singapore upon arrival to get... More

We just checked into the room about 2 hours ago but am still waiting for our towels, be it bath towels, hand towels or foot towels. The ladies at the front desk and guest service are great, polite and friendly. Housekeeping as another story. The vistas on the other hand is beautiful.

Stayed for 2 days in December 2014. Room's spacious (beach wing). Wide breakfast spread and the service was great too. Lots of restaurants nearby (walking distance) and for local food there are a number of stalls nearby but it is much better to drive to the city instead. Better to stay in the beach wing as the restaurant, pool, beach... More

We were given a Suite on 11th Floor, overlooking the Mountain View. Pity, all the bigger rooms were facing that way instead of the Sea View. We were also located at a different block from all facilities (Dining area, pool, massage, beach etc). This was quite an inconvenience especially in the event of bad weather or recreational needs. Room wise,... More

1) the check in took us very long despite having a reservation and being a priority club member. 2) limited parking. We practically had to park within ridiculously small spaces and there was no valet service! We had to park in another wing while we staying in another building across the road. 3) the breakfast buffet was really unacceptable. There... More

Purchased cheap air tickets to Penang for a vacation of three days with a friend. We didn't have the patience to search hotel by hotel so we decided to just book a room on whatever beach hotel we see. And this made us to Holiday Inn Resort. We booked on the official site a basic hill-view room with about RM800... More
