This Hotel is in the perfect location for the night market, which is literally outside the front entrance, along with the bus stops to George Town and The National Park. Although the hotel is beach facing, the actual beach is very, very poor and offers highly restricted access to the sea for swimming due to the almost non stop water... More

Breakfast was good, a large range of food. The hotel is in a great location in the middle of the night markets and close to a range of... More

We were upgraded to a Seaview room for our 9 nights stay. The room was spacious, towels were changed twice daily. Breakfast was of a super standard to cater for all tastes. The service was excellent, the staff always had a welcoming smile. Shame about the beach - no facilities made by the hotel.
