I stayed at the Ferringhi Wing Hillview Room at a rather reasonable rate of RM232. Check In was fast and hassle free. The furniture in the room although dated but were functioning. There were 2 Super Single bed in the room that were of good quality. The bathroom was huge, it consist of a bathtub, WC , basin and a... More

Had a recent two night stay at the HI as part of my holidays in Penang. Booked a double room on the Tower side but was given a room on the Beach Wing which was much appreciated. I had arrived close to midnight and did not really want to hike up to the tower. The staff were most accomodating and... More

Internet on the room is payd but in the lounge for free (although I didn`t got it working) . Pool in very child friendly... More

The hotel is quite a drive from the town/airport but they have a good beach. We went during the school holidays so lots of people, and the beach had lots of activities (water ski, parasailing etc - i dont know if they have that when it is not school holidays). Breakfast was good, quite a large variety. Other than breakfast... More

My wife and I had planned a 3D2N stay at the hotel for our honeymoon. On the first night, we returned to our hotel via taxi after dinner at Hard Rock Cafe. My wife handcarried a pouch (bought from the local nightmarket, without any brand on it). We went back to our room, locked & latched the room door, and... More

Just came back from a 3D/2N stay in Holiday Inn Penang. Hotel was in good location with night markets startng at 6pm till 11pm onwards right infront the hotel. There's 2 side of the hotel, the Tower wing is away from the beach area by a overhead bridge walkway. It would be better to choose the newer wing if you... More

We were surprised by the quality of the room. It was a Beach wing, sea facing room. Looked as though it was refurbished recently, better than expected from a Holiday Inn. The service was brilliant, every whim was well tended too. Polite, well trained staff throughout the hotel, good job! The rest goes downhill from there. The hotel is old,... More

We stayed for six nights. First room offered - tower block floor four - quite noisy from road, but very musty smell (not refurbished), so opted for recently refurbished sixth floor room road side in the beach block. Room was excellent, but road was very noisy all night. Next day we moved to the 11th floor of the tower block... More

We stayed at Holiday Inn Resort Penang for 5 nights in March 2011. Our booking was through Holiday Inn using points. Upon arrival at the Penang Airport we bought 7 day Rapid Penang bus pass for 30 Malaysian Ringgit (about $10 US) that allows unlimited bus access and additional discounts. The 102 Bus from the airport should run every 45... More

Coming from the airport, the hotel is located on the right hand side of the road. Beautiful hotel. Problem is, accross the street they have a tower that is also part of the hotel, called Ferringhi Tower. They built a bridge linking both. We stayed at the tower, and once you are there, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN...for whatever need,... More
