I stayed 10 days at the Holiday Inn resort in Penang. When you book make sure to book a room in the main building (not the mountain Ferringhi Tower). We stayed in room 409 and had sea view, really worth the extra cost. The room was large to also accommodate a baby cot. Breakfast was good but because of the... More

As it was our first time in Penang, our stay in this resort was excellent. The staff were obliging, helpful, polite and friendly. Bedroom very clean and extremely spacious. Excellent choice of breakfasts though would have liked better sausages or more indian breakfasts like Dosa and variety of good accompaniments to go with it! Lovely gardens and shaded areas to...

right in the center of Batu Ferringhi beach, the local bus to Georgetown and the hop-on hop-off bus stopping right in front, the hotel is a cool way to know Penang. The night market in front of the hotel is a plus, the personel is extra friendly and helpful, the pool very nice and the food delicious!
