If you are looking for a good standard budget home, then you cannot go wrong with the Bayview. Of course there are not the frills of 5 star hotels, but for what you pay, it would be unrealistic to make complaints and expect more from this resort. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, the bathrooms are good with toiletries... More

Such a relaxing experience at the quieter end of the hotel strip. Grounds are excellent. Service wonderful. Priced very well. Would return in a heart beat. Stayed here many years ago....pleased to see there have been upgrades to suit the times. Hard pressed to find any faults.

Having read other TripAdvisor reviews indicating a dated hotel I was expecting something a little less than what I actually experienced. I couldn't fault my third floor room which was clean and spacious. Large comfy king size bed. Cool aircon. Large balcony. A separate large shower in addition to a bathroom with over bath shower. Pool area was good. Only... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights during the peak holiday season in Penang when the downtown hotels were mostly booked solid. It is quite far up along the beach resort strip in Teluk Bahang, a non-walkable distance away from the main strip at Batu Ferringhi where most of the 'action' is. However, it has its own smattering of... More

Dear artemisworks, We are sorry that we did not meet up to your expectations on some areas and we apologise for the inconvenience caused over the ‘less than perfect’ attention given by the room attendant during your recent stay with us. Appropriate action has been taken by the Housekeeping Department to be more vigilant when checking rooms. I know we... More

We stayed in a deluxe room on level 3 which was generous in size but requires major renovation. The resort maybe 4 stars overall, but the room we stayed in was more like 3 stars at best. Had I known the standard of the room I would have booked a better room. Also this property is the last one in... More

Dear KennethLimBW, We thank you for your comment about our pool, spacious comfortable room, widespread breakfast and well kept hotel. The resort which is built in the early 90's has mostly maintained its original design along with antique furniture, carvings and handicrafts scattered around the resort hence "the old world charm". The Bayview on the other hand offers affordable quality... More

Spent 5 nights with a free upgrade to a superior room plus late checkout. We had a hill view which was very pleasant and avoided hot afternoon sun.

Stayed here with my wife a while ago. Hotel is excellent with friendly staff. its right on the beach, although the beach is not as attractive as the hotel grounds.

Dear andy d, Regrettably where we are located along a busy shipping route, the sea water quality along Batu Ferringhi in general has the unpredictable presence of jelly fish. Hence, we compensate this situation with a hygienic and safe swimming pool for our guests. I am glad our friendly staff have served you well and that overall the hotel is... More
